on the boards: bathroom renovation
for this project, we needed to stick to a somewhat strict budget. because we no longer live there, it wasn't worth the expense to expand the small bathroom per previously conceived plans. I also had to temper my desire for pricey modern tiles and fixtures. but I am happy with the materials we found and think that the bathroom will be, like the remodeled kitchen, a clean and modern space. here is what is currently on the boards:
1_IKEA SAVERN Mirror, stainless steel
2_IKEA SAVERN Wall lamp, double, nickel plated
3_IKEA SAVERN Double hook, chrome plated
4_Danze Amalfi Single Handle Tub &Sower Faucet,chrome
5_IKEA LILLANGEN Sink cabinet with 2 doors, white
6_ceiling mounted curtain track, white, with ball chain drops and white subway tile. I am planning to use a medium grey grout with an 1/8" grout joint.
7_custom flat roman shade from The Shade Store in an Eames inspired dot pattern sheer fabric
8_The Tile Shop Soft Dreams Beige 13x13 inch porcelain floor tile
9_Benjamin Moore Cinder wall paint
now that the demolition is complete, the major work of re-plumbing the entire bathroom will begin. the waste stack from the basement to the bathroom is being replaced as well. I am looking forward to seeing this project completed in several weeks and will post more pictures as construction continues!
