Last week, I shared our next big renovation project… the basement bathroom! If you missed that post, which contains before images and the design plan, check it out here. Emmett and I have been so busy wrapping up our formal living room (which will hopefully be done in ONE WEEK), we skipped the renovation intro video last week. This year one of my big goals was to thoroughly document our renovation process for each room we tackle- and that includes video sessions with our goals, design inspiration, challenges we expect to see, products we’re looking forward to installing, etc. I couldn’t end the year and not record a video for this one… especially since we’re both really excited about it! Click through for the video, some sneak peeks of products that have been rolling in, and for a peek into our living room.

I’m going to start with the light fixture I selected. So many of you asked for an update on the true shade / globe color. The image online looks like smoked glass, but the description reads “clear”. It is definitely clear in person and is pictured above. I still love it, but if you had planned to order this fixture solely based on the smoked glass shade- it’s not smoked or mercury glass. It’s beautiful and still right for my design plan, I just wanted to clarify!
Ready for the intro video? Emmett and I share our thoughts on the upcoming basement bathroom project below…
I’ve been using our empty built-ins as an area to inventory products for the basement bath and look at materials together… like an in-person, physical moodboard. In the video, we raved about a couple bathroom renovation products we use and love… the first being the recessed Broan exhaust fan. It looks like a can light, it gives off light, AND it’s a fan / bathroom exhaust. We used this in our guest bathroom and we’ll never go back to installing ugly fans.
Next, the Ditra is another product we’ve used in the past, but this time around- we splurged for the HEATED version. Remember- I’m trying to make this bathroom as cozy as it can be, since it’s in the basement. We’ll have a heated tile floor DIY for you in January! If you missed the design plan or are curious about other sources, I’m going to copy that one last time below…
01: semi flush mount light fixture // 02: beveled wall mirror // 03: towel warmer // 04: single hole faucet // 05: faux floral arrangement // 06: kohler toilet // 07: toilet brush // 08: vanity with marble top and sink // 09: waste basket // 10: patterned floor tile // 11: marble wall tile // 12: shower trim // 13: bathroom hardware set // 14: nero marble floor tile
Now I feel like we can properly start the renovation! Everything on my “must document” list has been checked off and the only thing left to do is pick up the sledge hammer and get started.
Cash is much more comfortable on camera than Crosby. Ha! I’m joking… he was sunbathing and couldn’t be bothered to join our family renovation video. If you guys have questions about our upcoming basement bathroom project, posts you’d like us to cover, or things you’re interested in learning more about, please let me know in the comment section below! I’m excited to wrap up the living room and start a new project in 2020. Thanks for following along, friends!
