This Industrial Modern Bathroom Remodel was a dramatic bathroom renovation on a budget.
Since moving into the Retro Ranch, we’ve touched almost all of the main level except for the main bathroom. We decided it was time to bring it up to date and we’ve started on the bathroom demo and flooring.
This bathroom didn’t have a lot going for it, but we were able to salvage the tub and surround, the toilet, and the mirror! We couldn’t save it all though. The lighting, vanity and linoleum went straight to the dump.
When planning out this bathroom, we knew we wanted to do the same black plank tile flooring that we went with in our last bathroom. As for the rest of the bathroom I knew it needed to be affordable, as well as neutral. I also wanted to add the modern industrial vibe that all of my inspiration bathrooms had. Lastly, because it is the only main floor bathroom I really wanted to take it from one sink to two. With those requirements in mind, here is our plan for an entire industrial modern bathroom remodel for under $1000
1. Shower Curtain $39 I love the geometric pattern, as well as the way it ties in the wall color and flooring.
2. Towel Rack $80 This isn’t cheap, but I love the industrial metal, as well as the fact that it holds a LOT of towels adding necessary storage.
3. Vanity Light *affiliate link* $76 For lighting the requirement was that it was three or more lights, and was under $100. This one fit the bill and so into my shopping cart it went.
4. Circle Mirrors *affiliate link* $218 for both. Because there is nothing wrong with the existing mirror I’m having a hard time pulling the trigger on these. My plan is when we do the basement bathroom that the existing mirror will go downstairs, and these will go into this bathroom.
5. Faucets *affiliate link* $50 each. I really wanted a modern faucet, and finding two of them affordably was tough. For under $100 for two though I’m pretty happy with how these look.
6. Vanity $399. I really wanted to find a way to use wood tones in this bathroom. I think this vanity is a great way to use wood in a modern way. I also like that it fits two sinks into a small space.
7. Art Print. $25 This print ties in all the black and white, as well as the vintage vibe. I also love the reminder to stop a take a breath!
8. Tile. $250 Our tile price included the underlayment, tile, thin set, and grout. The tile itself was really affordable at $2 sq/ft and only 40 sq/ft to cover.
9. Wall Color. We’re going with Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Grey which is the same color that is throughout the rest of the house. That meant it’s basically free because we already had a 5 gallon bucket of it. I would have loved to go for black walls again, but this was a better option for re-sale.
This means that without purchasing the mirrors, and using our existing towels and shower liner we come in at $975. If I end up splurging on the mirrors we’ll be at $1200… still not awful for a total bathroom remodel!

As we start to get this bathroom put together I’ll keep you posted on the progress! Hopefully we can quickly move out of the 70’s and give it the modern industrial vibe I’m going for!
