Heartland Gateway Bathroom Renovation
This RV Bathroom doesn't even look like an RV bathroom anymore! With just a few simple upgrades, I was able to really transform this space!
I sanded all the cabinets, inside as well, with 80 grit sand paper and then cleaned EVERYTHING (walls, ceiling, cabinets) with a 50/50 mixture of vinegar and water.
Then I primed the entire room (ceiling included) with STIX primer. This is my FAVORITE primer and sticks so well, as per it's name!! No chipping at all with this primer!
Then I painted the entire room and cabinets with Benjamin Moore's Chantilly Lace in Scuff X Satin finish. This is the perfect and most durable paint and works great for cabinets.
Next up was flooring. I have been using Shaw Matrix line in the last few renovations and I love this flooring so much. It's only 3.2mm thick (meaning it works great with slides and is lighter in weight than a thicker flooring) and is very easy to install. This flooring is in their style Dockside Hickory.
The tub, surround, and shower doors were all original. We just replaced the shower faucet. This faucet is great because it's an exterior faucet, so very little tweaking needed to happen in order to install it!
We did have to raise the shower faucet a little bit higher than the original faucet, which left two holes in the surround. I put a piece of wood along the back (there was an access panel from the bedroom on the back on the wall) and then filled the holes with Ivory caulk. It matched perfectly and allowed for waterproofing.
We put new knobs on the cabinet, a new faucet made the original countertops and sink look more updated, a shiplap accent wall and new mirror, and this room was transformed!
We also removed that upper cabinet, which means they lost a little storage space, but it opened up the room so much and allowed for that countertop to be so much more accessible, which is a win in my book!
