I'm so elated that our master bathroom is finally finished! This bathroom makeover has been a long time coming, and this room has been the most hated in the house since we moved in. We've done so many DIY projects around our house, but tiling is something that I just didn't want to do. So, we have lived with vinyl flooring that was peeling for a VERY long time. I have painted walls, painted the vanity and changed the shower curtain to try and pretty it up, but the floor just always grossed me out. Let me show you what I mean...
OK...so this is the vinyl that was in my bathroom before. At first glance, it doesn't look that bad, and sort of looks like real tile, but it's not. The minute you step foot on it, you know. And...it started peeling. Once it starts peeling and gets even a little bit wet, you have a recipe for mold and other bacteria to grow. Gross, right?
This is my attempt to do something about it on my own. I thought maybe I could throw a little paint up, change out some of the vinyl tiles that I found that matched, only to find that there was more vinyl underneath. This is when I decided that this was a bigger job than I was willing to do myself.
I started by visiting my local Carpet One Showroom. They had just finished bringing in a bunch of tile from a home show, so I snapped a photo of some of the beautiful tile that was being unloaded...to die for, right?
Carpet One is having an amazing Don't Do It Yourself ( #DDIY ) flooring sale right now through April 19th with up to 50% off of select Lee's Carpets as well as up to $500 instant rebate (10% off) on select hardwood, tile, laminate, LVT and more!
I chose a few different tiles that would work for our bathroom and scheduled a home visit. Next, they came over to measure and give me a free in home estimate.
Once the tile was ordered and in stock, it was time for demolition. The vinyl was pulled up, toilet taken up, quarter round removed, and the floor scrubbed.
Then the amazing tile guys, Nathan and Craig, got to work doing there thing. I stayed completely out of their way and let them do their work. There was a lot of measuring, trips in and out to cut tiles and mix things, and within 24 hours, my bathroom was finished!
Now doesn't that look soooo much better? I don't cringe when I get out of the shower any more, and it feels amazing! I couldn't be more pleased with the end result, and am so glad that I didn't have to do it myself! A huge thank you to Carpet One!
That beautiful floor even inspired me to get rid of the clutter on our counter top so our bathroom feels more spa like and less bathroomish!
So...what do you think? Didn't Carpet One do an amazing job?
