Planning a Do It Yourself Bathroom Remodel

glass tiles

I’ve been planning a bathroom remodel for awhile and now that we’re getting close to summer and the kids getting out of school, I’m enjoying shopping for the new fixtures and tile that I’d like to put in there. In my opinion, the shopping is the fun part, although I really do like to do the work myself too.

Laying tile floors is pretty easy to do once you get the hang of it and there are tons of videos and “how to’s” online to help get you started. I really like the idea of doing a whole wall in these 1″ square mosaic glass tiles and since they come in 12″ x 12″ sheets you can do a whole wall pretty quickly with a lot less effort than it would appear to take.

This color scheme with a mixture of stone, porcelain, glass and metal tiles is at the top of my wish list, but there are so many different colors, styles, sizes and shapes to choose from that I think the shopping portion of this do it yourself project is far from over.  I’m super excited to give my bathroom a whole new look and hardly wait until I have some free time this summer to get it started.

 

My Dream Kitchen and Bath Remodel

Mosaic Glass Tile Backsplash

I absolutely love do-it-yourself projects around the house and I’ve been dying to update the kitchen and master bathroom. I’d really like to have a professional come in and install some granite counter tops for me, but then I’m sure I’d have to also spruce up the rest of the kitchen.

I’ve put down ceramic tile floors in the kid’s playroom and in a couple rentals that I’m super glad I don’t own anymore, so I think that putting in mosaic tiles for a backsplash in the kitchen would be very easy to do using these 1″x1″ tiles that are sold in 12″x12″ sheets.

Marble and Metal Fusion Mosaic Tiles

I really like the look and colors in the kitchen shown at the top, but I think I’m really leaning toward this style that mixes marble, glass and decorative copper tiles. I collect antique copper pots, pans and primitive hammered copper artwork and this mosaic would match my decor perfectly. Of course there are tons of different styles, designs and colors to choose from when you go with mosaic tiles, so there is something for every taste.

Random Brick Mosaic Tiles

While I’m at it, I think I’m going to have to renovate the bathroom as well. There are lots of different shapes to choose from, including bricks and diamonds and I think I’d like to mix it up a little. I’d pick something in a matching color scheme, but I really like the look of these random brick style mosaic tiles for a shower surround. I’ve been checking out photo galleries of tile projects this morning and I’m almost salivating over all the different designs. I think the shopping portion of the project is at least half the fun, but I’m ready to get started because I think that updating the kitchen and bathroom will make it seem like I’m coming home to a whole new house!
