How to Remodel a Bathroom with Italian Tile & Copper Sinks – Part 1

This tutorial describes how I remodeled an outdated master bathroom in an attractive Italian Mediterranean theme with Italian porcelain tile and copper fixtures.

The following are photos of the ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos of the remodeled bathroom.

This is the bathroom looked life before the remodel. Everything was antiseptic white and uninspiring.

The bathroom remodeling work included:

  • removing the old glazed ceramic tile and installing porcelain tile
  • rebuilding the shower
  • replacing the toilet
  • replacing the countertop and medicine cabinets
  • installing copper sinks, faucets and switch plates
  • replacing the vanity lights and ceiling fan
  • painting the walls, doors and cabinet

This project is continued in Part 2.

Take care,

    What a beautiful transition. Tile work looks excellant. I am sure the contractor you talked to gave you a modest estimate on what he would bid. Many would charge much more.
    Using the oil based enamel to refinish existing vanity was a nice touch and produced great looking results in keeping with the style you were going for.
