The photos in this bathroom remodel before and after blog post are actually from years ago. I took them for another project and the edit makes the walls look more saturated. The color is a slightly more bright blue called Indigo Batik by Sherwin Williams. When designing this bathroom, the idea of a navy blue bathroom with half painted walls, half tiled, sounded aesthetically pleasing to me. At the time, I didn't realize that my dad's 90's seascape painting from our beach house would fit perfectly with the theme.
These bathroom remodel before and after photos remind me how far we have come in our home renovation.
When you're in the thick of home projects, they feel like they will never end. This is our main bathroom and the second room that we finished when we first bought our home in 2014. Now, 6 years later, I am repainting the bathroom in the same color, but in a different sheen. I knew at the time that I should go with a higher gloss because of the steam from the shower. I wanted to try a more matted style of paint, so I went with satin. We have water streaks on our walls, so I am giving in to the semi-gloss finish.
The bathroom felt very small and enclosed when we moved in. There was barely any natural light with a shutter on the window, and a large drop-down wall with a fluorescent light above the sink area. Needless to say, we gutted the entire bathroom including the fiberglass shower tub. You can see the grungy vibe in the photos below.
