We’ve been moving right along in Greta’s bathroom makeover and today we wanted to share the new floors and paint–it looks like an all new space!
Greta’s bathroom had hardwood floors to begin with, which were nice, but the wood did not extend under the vanity and was maybe not the best choice for a kid’s bathroom. We wanted something super durable and carefree!
We found a really pretty argyle pattern by Mohawk ForeverStyle from Lowe’s. It has Wearguard, a special glaze that makes them 3x more durable which is incredible because bathrooms can be high-traffic, and they have to stand up to the “elements.” The Wearguard keeps them looking fresh for years!
The muted color palette is playful-yet-sophisticated, and Greta approved. Also, Mohawk ForeverStyle’s line of tiles really opens up the opportunity to mix and match: You could easily pair the patterned tiles with the authentic-looking wood and stone designs.
We made a quick video documenting our process!
Here’s how we did it:
The entire process of removing the floors, laying the backer board and the tile took only a few hours. This is an easy afternoon or weekend project. It was so quick and easy — we had time to paint!
Before we painted, we reattached our baseboard and caulked it, closing the gap between the bead board and the wall.
Next, we painted the walls and ceiling the beautiful Alabaster by Sherwin-Williams in eggshell that we used throughout the house. For the bottom half, we went with Revere Pewter in satin, both color matched to our favorite one-coat paint, Sherwin Williams HGTV Home Infinity line. It’s pretty common to see white wainscoting with a color application on top, so we wanted to switch it up for this room to make it look even more fresh.
We’re excited to finish off the bathroom with a few necessities and accessories–a fresh mirror and light, toilet paper holder and towel rack. Greta loves the new floors so much, she squealed when she saw them. She’s feeling pretty special having her very own bathroom and we can’t wait to finish it strong with a few sweet accessories.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

The next project we’re checking off our 2023 project list is the mudroom! This used to be the laundry room until we built out a much bigger, better laundry room upstairs. So, in the meantime, this space has been exclusively Cricket’s room. Cricket will still have a special space here, but we’re transforming this dingy […]
