Why “done” and not just…done? I haven’t figured out what to hang over the toilet! It’s what the room is missing, so I don’t want to declare complete doneness until that’s done.
I last left off with a little sneak peek of our new tub, tile surround, and tile floor and also how we solved a little looks vs. durability dilemma. We have since painted the walls, re-installed and painted the baseboards, installed the vanity and sink, hung a new mirror, split out the single light fixture into two sconces (with the help of my dad), and added additional towel hooks. We did all this while painting the laundry room and patio doors, so we’ve been busy around here!
And just as a reminder, here’s where we started.
I am so smitten over the color we chose. It is Sherwin Williams Mega Greige. The mirror is by Allen+Roth from Lowe’s and the sconces are by Martha Stewart from Home Depot (and a total steal!).
Every time I find a new color I really like, I get the urge to paint my whole house that color. But, I’m sure that will pass. I really do like it a lot though.
The vanity is so so so functional. Vanities in general often seem less than efficient with storage to me, but this one by St. Paul has the perfect sized drawers and the perfect combo of drawers and cabinet. I wish all vanities came with a pullout bottom drawer. It is exactly the right height for extra TP, and there is still room to spare for more storage of stuff. The side drawers are deep enough to still be functional, and the cabinet part is just the right size for all of our taller bottles. And it was only $289!
The counters are Silestone Lagoon and the sink is a Kohler Archer. Check out my durable bathroom materials post for all the deets on why we chose Silestone.
The floors are Florim Stratos Avorio, a porcelain 12×24 tile.
The beveled white subway tiles are are classic and functional. I’ve started wiping down the shower each time I get out to keep our grout fresh and new, and it really keeps the shower so much cleaner overall.
The hand shower is amazing. It’s set low right now to accommodate my 5’1 height. Marty raises it up when he gets in. It really is so much more comfortable to have showerhead at your own custom height.
And these Silestone corner shelves make me so happy to be done with our old grungy shower caddy.
I also hung a couple hooks right outside the shower for extra towels.
We went with larger hooks made by Martha Stewart from Home Depot because I find that they help with drying out the towels better. I think these are technically called robe hooks if you are searching for something similar.
