I have been dying to share this review with you guys ever since we moved into our house and started this project. When we moved into our fixer upper, I knew that our powder room was one of the first things that I wanted to start renovating. And let me tell you one thing, this powder room is S M A L L so I had to get creative. With a lot of my big projects for the house I decided to create a mini vision board just to organize things better. You guys know me 🙂 Here is the vision board I made for the powder room!
I mean come on – look at that tile! My entire house is white but from the minute I saw this powder room, I knew that I wanted it to have a statement color. I decided upon Sherwin Williams color – Oceanside . This rooms doesn’t get a lot of light so I didn’t want to go too dark and then the color look black so I decided to go a little lighter than the inspiration. It’s definitely a bold color for me, but I love it in this room. I am so happy with how it turned out. Before I get to the good stuff, we also replaced the faucet and mirror. Eventually I would like to change out the sink but I was trying to do a simple Reno on a budget, so I decided to replace the sink at another time. Another step I would like to do would be to replace the door with a sliding barn door. As I have said so many times that powder room is SO SMALL and the door on it goes into the bathroom so it makes for a cramped bathroom. I would like to take the current door off and replace it with a sliding barn door, but I haven’t found one I am in love with yet, so we haven’t tackled this project yet.
Check out these before pictures (yuck, I know) and that green color!!
Now for the floors – when we moved into this house I knew that I had to do something about this tile. I hated it! I knew when started my inspiration board for the mood board the I wanted to do some type of black and white tile. However, the more I began to research it, all of the tile that I loved was SO expensive and I was worried about the cost of replacing the tile and honestly didn’t want to have to worry about the headache. And then began my research. I did countless hours of research and finally stumbled upon Quadrostyle Stickers. Quadrostyle provides affordable tile stickers for floors, walls, backsplash, stairs, and more! Check out this video for my review of the company/product. They are amazing and so easy. When I found out that I could remodel my bathroom floor at a fraction of the price and time, I said sign me up! I immediately contacted the company and got started. One of my favorite parts about the entire process was being able to get sample pieces of the floor from the company. I couldn’t decide between a 2 different options so I ended up ordering 2 samples of them and placed them on our bathroom floor until I decided which one I liked! It was so convenient. I ended up going with the “Corona Black” style and I am so happy I did!
Before ordering the floor, I emailed customer service and gave them the number of tiles I needed to cover and the measurements and they were able to assist me with my order to make sure I didn’t order too little or too much. I received my stickers in about a week and was ready to tackle my project.
- Prep the Area: I used my Mrs. Meyers floor cleaner to clean the area with a paper towel. I did this to get rid of any dirt, dust, sand, etc.
- Laid out the Tile: Because I am such a perfectionist, I wanted to lay out all of my tile in like a puzzle piece before I started adhering the tile to my floor. I laid out the whole pieces first and then went through and added the smaller pieces.
- Install the Tile: To install the tile, all you do is peel off the backing from the sticker and adhere it to your tile. It is very important to make sure that you double check when you line your tile up to make sure that your sticker doesn’t go off the tile and onto the grout. If this happens it could cause your stickers to come up when you vacuum or sweep.
- Trim the Edges: So in my video I definitely trimmed my pieces before I peeled off the backing and placed my tile down, but next time I would recommend putting your sticker down on your tile and then trimming your excess off with a box cutter. And yes, I know I said straight blade in the video too!
- Smooth out the Edges: At the very end, I smoothed out the edges with my hands to make sure there were no ripples or bubbles.
Guys – it was SO EASY! From start to finish, this project took me about an hour and I had a brand new floor! The only thing I am thinking about adding to the bathroom is adding a different grout color. The color as you can tell from the pictures is a beige/taupe color and I am not a fan. I just ordered this grout pen to use to cover up that color and give the entire look a refresh! To say I am pleased is an understatement and you guys would not believe the compliments we have gotten on this floor. I am already planning on using them for my laundry room and upstairs bathroom!
I have already been getting questions from my friends of how they are holding up and the answer is INCREDIBLE! They even can’t believe when I tell them that my floors are stickers! I have had them for about 3 months and they look absolutely perfect. We are in that bathroom all of the time and I am so impressed with how good they look. Here’s my full review of Quadrostyle! I would highly recommend them to anyone that is wanting to revamp a space in their home.
To finish off the look, I added some black, white, and gold accents to tie everything together.

The transformation in this bathroom is absolutely incredible and this has definitely been one of my favorite home projects to date. Please let me know if you guys have any questions about the process, renovation, etc. I would be happy to answer them!
