After winning the Home Depot Orange Tank competition, I am finally ready to get started renovating my Studio half bath to make it handicap accessible. Here are my design plans for the big remodel.
Back in July, I submitted a video to Home Depot for the Orange Tank Competition at the Haven Blog Conference. I pitched a bathroom renovation for the teeny tiny bathroom in the studio/craft room so my brother and long-term team member on the blog can get in and out of it on his own. Right now the doorway is too slim for his chair to fit through, and the bathroom isn’t accessible for him to use comfortably either.
On the last day of Haven, we all gathered in a big room for the closing ceremonies, and when the Home Depot Orange Tank winners were announced, my name was called! I still can’t believe it! Home Depot gave me $5000 to makeover the bathroom, and it totally feels like I’m still dreaming.
I ordered all the materials and supplies for a full gut-job, and they are all finally here in-house, so that means we are ready to get started! I’ve got my contractor lined up to help with things like wall removal and plumbing, but I plan on doing the rest of the work myself.
Scope Of Work:
- Open doorway from 28 inches to 36 inches
- Replace toilet to ADA height with push-button flush
- Replace vanity with floating sink at wheelchair height
- Replace flooring with marble LVT
- Cover all walls with peel and stick tile
- Replace ceiling tiles
- Replace lighting
- Add tillable mirror
- Add shelving over toilet
Timeline & Budget
Here is the mood board I’ve got planned. Isn’t it dreamy?! Since the bathroom is so ridiculously small, I’m going to be able to remodel the entire room for under $6000. ($1000 in labor costs, $5000 in Home Depot product) I’ll be sharing the whole process in my Instagram Stories, along with tutorials and milestones here on the blog. The goal is to have the bathroom completely done in three weeks, and I can’t wait to show you more soon!
