Guest Bathroom: A Quick Fix

A little update on our guest bathroom to share today…

If you’ve been reading this blog for a bit you know that we transformed three hallway closets into a full bath in the middle of our house.

If I back track just a bit, the last time we had to deal with a grout issue in this space was when we were installing the tile itself. That was a decent amount of time ago.

So when this little bitty hole in the grout popped up a couple of months ago, I noticed it immediately (terrible spot for a blemish in the tile!) but kept pushing off the repair by convincing myself it was a time consuming project.

Well I finally got around to fixing it when I was grouting the backsplash for Liv’s mini kitchen and it was such a basic job! I suppose the purpose of this post is to share how easy it is to fix up little tile problems in the bath and kitchen. No need to call the handyman or even add it to the honey-do list. This is a quick DIY fix.

Rather than mess with a giant bag of grout, I scooped out a mini cup’s worth for all of my grout projects that day (I was also grouting Liv’s mini kitchen backsplash but if I was just making this bathroom repair I’d need maybe a teaspoon) and mixed it with a small amount of water to form my grouting paste.

Love it when projects that I dread turn out to be no big deal at all :).

    Hi Morgan,
    People should take care of these kind of little diy projects by themselves. I really like the way you pointed it out. But i do have a questions.
    What would you advice to look for before hiring a bathroom renovation company?
    What to look for, specialties, quick response etc etc.
    Would love to hear your response or probably an article/post on it as it will help us get better :)
    Cheers!

    Ugh, I hate seeing those grout holes! Good to know we don’t need caulk to fix it up. Thanks for the tip!

    wow, that was an easy fix. I would have put it off, too, thinking it would be a major headache. We have some grout pop off from the floor, but it’s probably due to the floor flexing, so we need to figure out how to fix the underlying issue. yuk.
