Now that baby girl has finally made her appearance, I’m going to need some help getting the house in shape. That being said, I’m going to need a little bit of help achieving some goals around the house. Since we’ll be expecting plenty of visitors in the next month or so, I really wanted to transition our bathroom from a kid’s bathroom to a more inviting, grown up space for guests. Our guest bathroom is very small, so transforming it shouldn’t take a whole lot of effort, however there’s no way that I’m going to be laying tiles after having a baby. So why do it yourself when you can have a fast, professional job done for you? Here’s what I’m working with…
I consulted with my local Carpet On retailer for some advice on changing out our vinyl floors with some brand new tiles. I knew better than to tackle this project by myself by watching my in-laws experience with tile installation. The easy part is ripping out the vinyl – then unless you know exactly where to begin, that’s where problems can occur. Sometimes it’s worth NOT doing it yourself, or #DDIY *Don’t do it yourself”. See how some #DDIY projects can easily go south by viewing some of the hilarious videos put together by Carpet One.
I really wanted to take a modern approach, something that would exude elegance and I think I found it with this tile.
I love the grey/white blend and also the timeless linear pattern that won’t be outdated anytime soon. It’s on the pricey side, but my bathroom is no more than 35 sq feet and a fixed up bathroom adds tremendous re-sale value to your home.
So here’s my plan…
a. Fabrique Field Tile Polished – By Carpet One $8.95 per sq ft
b. GODMORGON / EDEBOVIKEN Sink cabinet with 2 drawers, black-brown – By IKEA $349
c. GODMORGON Mirror cabinet with 2 doors – by IKEA $170
e. Fieldcrest® Luxury Bath Runner (Molten Lead) – Target $39.99
f. Threshold™ Textured 3-pc. Bath Towel Set (Radiant Grey) – Target $17.97
h. Geo Stone Bath Coordinates – Target $9.99 – $29.99
g. On The Double Step Stool – Land of Nod – $69.00
i. Threshold™ Pintuck Shower Curtain – Target – $24.99
I went to visit my local Carpet One store and found out they will come to your home with their samples and give you a free consultation & room measurement – no leaving the house is necessary! For someone in my situation, I couldn’t ask for better. When you have small children and pets, its a relief to know that they even offer healthier living installation to minimize irritants, dust and odors to encourage better air quality in customer’s homes. Each Carpet One store is locally owned and operated by folks who live in your community. I’m all about hiring local, so this is the perfect option for us – they have tons of great flooring, free consultations AND all their staff are expert designers ready to help you visualize your project. Carpet One even promises to REDO your floor if you’re not completely satisfied – who does that??
Be sure to check out the #DDIY sale that’s going on 3/6/15 through 4/19/15 at your local Carpet One because you can enjoy up to a $500 instant rebate (10% off) on select hardwood, tile, laminate, LVT and more.
