My House Tour: Master Bath Part I
A restful place intended to be used by adults only.
I am a firm believer of a cozy master bath, rather than a large room that never warms up under my bare feet. However, I love texture, wood and tile dispersed throughout a bathroom of any size. Those three things are what make this room feel like my own spa retreat to enjoy at the end of a long day!
Unlike the other bathrooms in my house, this room was not a total gut. While we kept some things, we replaced and renewed others.
Although this room is not huge, it is packed full with details and character! The first place I started this remodel was the floor. I absolutely loved the vintage tile that was original to this bathroom, but I did not love the dirty "white" grout! Let the Master Bathroom Remodel begin:
|Minwax Stain Pen|
Grab some Minwax stain pens at the home improvement store. I chose a dark stain because I wanted the look of black grout (these are in the stain and paint department). While you are there, grab replacement tips for the pens because the rough grout chews up the felt tip and you will need to replace it several times. You will also need a bottle of GooGone and a rag for keeping your floor clean.
Clean your floor as you normally would and let dry completely. No need to scrub the grout, just be sure it is dry!
Stand up, stretch your legs and enjoy your beautiful "new" grout! Clean as you normally would from this point forward. I have even used bleach and the color stays put! You can't even compare the cost of this technique versus new tile or replacing the grout.
Stayed tuned for Master Bath: Part II...Lath Walls! I will explain step-by-step how to achieve a rustic, yet fun wall treatment that is mold and mildew resistant. This bathroom remodel is on the cheap, so plan on spending very little!
This is from Kalamazoo...to you!
