We took out the vanity first.
In the bathroom in our Cincinnati house, we had similar white tile in our original kitchen, so we were familiar with the difficult process of demo-ing it.
The tile was attached to the wall behind it with a layer of wire mesh, which makes the demo process a bit messy. Using a hammer and chisel, we worked to remove all of the tile and mesh.
That tile is heavy! There were quite a few trips to get it all into the dumpster in the driveway.
Have you ever demo-ed this old tile? It’s quite the job!
We started with the tile in the bathtub and worked our way around the room. The room was a mess!
We took out the toilet and tub, then the tile floor… and then the drywall. We took the room down to the studs.
Next up, one of my favorite parts, we had to figure out the room layout. We wanted more counter space but had to figure out the costs of rearranging any plumbing first.
It felt great to have another room demo-ed.
