Just wanted to share, we just finished remodeling the bathrooms in our new home; it was the very first remodel we've dealt with so I was very nervous, plus we had a limited budget and were really trying to stick to the bare minimum, so no bells and whistles like fancy mosaics etc. We went very cheap on the vanities too with pre-made vs custom. Very simple, one of my key priorities was easy cleaning because i hate hate hate cleaning bathrooms So integrated sinks and my favorite part is we did quartz slabs instead of tile for the shower surrounds! They look great and yay no grout, lol!

The kids/guest bath before:


After (the colors are a bit off - the quartz surround looks beige while in reality it's white with a slight grey tinge and the walls are a light grey):

Color is off in the master pics too, the walls were originally a yellowy beige, now both paint and tile are in a light mocha tone

Very nice!
Great idea about the quartz surround - must remember that for my future redo.

How did the cost of the quartz compare to cost of tiles? I guess labor would be less

We paid $500 more per bath for the quartz than we would've for tile - IMO very worth it! Soo low maintenance, I love it!

Looks great. The quartz surround is definitely eye-catching.
