We're about one week out from being 100 percent finished with our master bathroom renovation project and we're all pretty excited. Our contractor will be completing all the last minute projects, like the ceiling and finishing up a few final touches like the mirror and bathroom accessories. The bathroom went from looking like a construction site to a luxurious spa like retreat in less than 2 months.
Budget wise, we definitely weren't prepared for just how much materials would cost. Pandemic pricing is real and on top of that, I seem to have an eye and a taste for expensive finishes. Our floors, tile and countertop really pushed us above our budget. Not to mention, certain items I preferred because of the style or color was a lot more expensive than the standard bathroom fare. As it turns out, even simple black or dark bronze fixtures are considered top of the line in Costa Rica and come at a premium, sometimes costing double or even triple.
All the stress and worry and running around will all be worth it in the end once we get to enjoy our beautiful, luxurious master bathroom. Here's to praying we can start the remodel on the rest of the house soon, as the bathroom is going to look so out of place in this old house.
