One thing I don't think I have ever really showed you guys is what the bathroom looked like to begin with.
Pretty nice, eh? Sponge-y floor, peel away tile, and a whole lot of laminate.
There certainly was work to be done.
Not only did we gut the bathroom down to the studs, we also rearranged the layout.
see this post) - creating a new master suite. We also removed the closets in the bathroom and bedroom which gained us a large enough space to fit a good sized shower and tub.
With all the extra space we got, we were really excited to fit a double vanity into our bathroom.
There is one thing that we decided to do with our vanity that is my favorite! F-A-V-O-R-I-T-E!
Here it is, ladies and gentlemen..
We had our electrician put an outlet inside the bottom part of our center vanity cabinet. That way we made ourselves a little electric toothbrush charging station. It's freaking awesome!
I always kind of hated leaving our tooth brushes out on the vanity to charge. And now we get to keep our toothbrushes safe from any particulates that may be flying around the bathroom... you know what I'm talkin' about.
Yep. Best. Decision. Ever.
We debated a lot about the size of our shower but finally decided on a 4'x3' shower and it is perfect.
My brother-in-law did the tile work for the shower as well as the floor for us and we think he did an awesome job! Super thankful for all his hard work and time.
The floor tile is something that was inspired by a home we saw when we were house hunting. I love the feel of it. It is kind of a playful, yet classic. I think the basket weave pattern fits in well with having a clawfoot tub.
When considering the layout for our bathroom we discussed a couple options. One with a linen closet, one without. Ultimately, we decided on the layout that felt more open - but it was the one without a linen closet. I did have a couple of remedies for that linen closet problem.
And the second part of my idea for storage outside a linen closet...
The only thing left to do is add art! I have a waterlily painting by my Great Great Aunt Betty Jean and I love the idea of it hanging in here. It is a nod to having our home on the river and it reminds me of her. I think I'd be interested in re-framing it, probably with a thick wooden frame.
I am also thinking it may be kind of nice to add a simple roman shade in a fresh pattern on the window. Someday, I'll get inspired by some fabric and I'll get that done. But for now, this room is feeling refreshingly finished! Ahhh, now, all I need to do is fire up that bathtub and take a nice long soak!
Who wants to see a side by side comparison between the old bathroom and the new bathroom?.. I thought you might!
