I’m so excited about our guest bathroom renovation reveal today! It’s been a hot minute since I talked about anything related to our renovation. That’s for a couple of reasons. One, my husband and I agreed that we would take our time on furnishing and decorating the house so I could find things I really loved. Two, all the renovation drama took an emotional toll on me and it’s still not a good subject.
But, today! Today, I’m back and I’m rowdy. When we started thinking about our guest bathroom remodel, we had one objective. Add value but save money. I found a lot of ways to save money while remodeling, and I think the changes we made helped update the bathroom. SO. Mission accomplished.

Jack and Jill Guest Bath Renovation Reveal: What We Changed
I thought I had pictures of everything before we started remodeling, but I can’t find any pictures of the guest bath right now. #BloggerFail
The biggest change we made was that we tore down a privacy wall and flipped the bathroom entirely. The reason I decided to flip the wall that the vanity was on is simply because everything would need to be extremely custom to stay symmetrical. Custom mirrors, custom sinks, custom vanity… the list goes on and on. While we are going to have to frost the window to prevent a peep show, I thought that was the lesser of two evils.
Another thing we did to keep costs down was keep things consistent throughout our renovation. We used the same quartz countertops throughout our entire house and used one cabinet and trim color throughout. We could have used the same wall color because there’s not a discernible difference between Glass Slipper and Whispering Spring.

Between the phantom 62″ bathtub saga and the stand your ground over a toilet nonsense, this bathroom showed us a lot about our contractor’s true colors (before things completely unraveled). That being said, I’m really happy at how it came out. (Now, if I could just figure out how to reinstall the pocket door lock that was installed upside down… #muchprofessional)
