Kids Bathroom Renovation Plans & Before Photos

We are finally tackling our last big renovation project in our home — the kids bathroom! Over the past 5 years we’ve done a LOT of work on our house (one project at a time) and saved this project for last knowing it will inevitably end up with toothpaste all over the walls. During our end of year planning meeting, we decided to renovate this bathroom sometime in 2022, but jumped on it sooner than anticipated once the bathtub started leaking through our kitchen ceiling.

Alright, let’s take a look at the before photos before we get this project rolling in the next few weeks!



We are again using Atreum Construction since we’ve had such great experiences working with them over the years. And one of the things I’m really excited about is they now make their cabinets in house so we don’t have to wait forever for cabinetry to start the project.

So once we demo the bathroom, the plans include:

  • Replace porcelain tub with an alcove soaking bathtub with frameless glass enclosure
  • Replace fiberglass shower walls with subway tile to ceiling
  • Install new vanity lights and add recessed lights
  • New vanity with double sinks and quartz countertop
  • Replace linen closet with a linen cabinet and relocate to other side of vanity
  • Replace floor tile

Atreum also created a rendering for us which really helped us visualize moving the linen closet to the other side of the vanity.


Once the project was a go, I called in Crystal Nagel to help me design the space. Since this isn’t our forever house, we opted for a more classic, neutral look and I am so excited about the design board she put together! We’re still tinkering with a few things but this is close to final!

You guys have done a beautiful job updating this home and making it your own...I'm surprised to hear it isn't your forever home?! What/where do you see as your forever home? Looking forward to the post about the updates to this bathroom :)

Thank you!! Not sure where we would go yet, but we would love to have a little more space for the kids to hang out with friends -- and a pool. :)

Not your forever home?!?! what?!?! lol, I love your home :) Curious, what do you envision as your forever home?

Haha. We love our home too!! And I am very attached to it! Matt moved around a lot growing up so he doesn't get as attached as me. We'd move for a pool and more space for the kids! :) I grew up with a pool and the Floridian in me realllllly wants one for the kids now that they are older! And Matt needs a dedicated office space so he can work from home sometimes.
