Excited to share with you guys the final after images from our first bathroom renovation project in the blue mountain house…
First off, a reminder of where this started in July. Carpet (who decided carpet was okay in a bathroom???), and a moldy shower insert. It desperately needed a total makeover.
Same view but after a whole lot of work! Well, actually still waiting on the glass but *almost* done.
Here some some details…
The tile is from Fireclay who we partnered on for our home tiling projects. They are my very favorite tile company and I had them on my wishlist for months. So you can imagine how thrilled I was to be working with them!
Fireclay Tile is handmade in California using domestically-sourced materials. Certified Climate Neutral, the factory uses 100% renewable electricity. And through partnerships with Carbon Fund, Pachama, and Climate Neutral, they work to offset carbon emissions from all parts of their operation. You can find out more about their mission, process, and sustainability practices here.
But also, the tile is just drop dead gorgeous. So much incredible inspiration in their gallery section if you’re unsure where to start.
The floor is White Wash 3 x 6 (Quick Ship, and part of their foundations line of more affordable tile), and the shower walls are Basalt 2 x 8 (also currently Quick Ship). We went with a horizontal stack pattern which is modern and clean. The wall grout is Mapei Alabaster. The floor grout is Mapei Warm Gray.
Downstairs is Henry’s bathroom and also the guest bathroom. I knew I wanted to do something dramatic and moody. I’ve been really itching to go with a full black tile and a warm grout. This was the perfect opportunity!
It’s so fun to get the samples in the mail! You can see some of the colors we were considering this past August. Top left is what we decided for all of the bathroom floors to have some consistency, and the black bottom right is what we chose for the downstairs bathroom wall. The glass tiles were super tempting, and the pastels I was considering for the other bathrooms.
Here was my inspiration board for the space.
I was really drawn to industrial, moody spaces for this bathroom. Stacked tile, and a modern vanity with clean lines. I like neutrals with a pop of color and that green vanity was the perfect pop.
Custom vanities were out of the question both in terms of cost and timeline (months out!), so I went searching for other options and found several affordable options at Wayfair and Costco.
Here’s how it looks all put together again.
Green Vanity is from Wayfair with their black hardware (I love this piece!)
Vanity 3 Light fixture is from Etsy
Industrial vanity mirror is from Wayfair
Black Faucet is Dorind brand from The Home Depot
Shower hardware is Delta Trinsic line in black
Another shot of how the tile looks together. We picked a matte black penny tile for the shower pan floor and black schluter for the edges instead of bullnose. I love how streamlined and sophisticated it looks together.

The artwork is by Deborah Barlow (my talented aunt!).
Absolutely love how this first tile project turned out. Since the tile was Quick Ship we were able to do this bathroom in time for us to move in for Thanksgiving. Then, we worked on the other bathrooms + laundry/mudroom tiling while we were in the home.
Lots of other reveals coming in the next couple weeks!
