The May bath renovation is complete and because its been a few months since we’ve talked about it we should probably review.
The May house is a 1920′s cottage with three bedrooms and two baths. The largest of the two bathrooms is on the second floor. All of the bedrooms are upstairs which makes that one bathroom up there pretty important. The problem was that the upstairs bathroom did not have a shower, lacked storage and was of course totally 80s complete with oversized whirlpool tub.
Here is the transformation,
Everything was removed including the entire floor,
the 20 year old particle board vanity was replaced by a custom vanity with a carrera marble counter top.
We installed PVC wainscotting ordered here, it looks just like wood but is completely waterproof.
the awkward empty nook below the slanted ceiling gets put to good use,
I brought the wrong lens with me so I didn’t have the proper range so you can’t see BUT we kept the window in the shower. I decided to make a fixed window, no grids with obscured glass to eliminate working/moving parts that would be subjected to water and we trimmed the vinyl window in Azek which is a wood composite that won’t rot. I’ll let you know how it holds up.
A rain can showerhead was installed in the ceiling.
Had to get a new faucet,
The affordable octagonal tile everyone loves with gray grout. The tile was purchased at Lowes.
The wall color is Benjamin Moore’s Palladian Blue. I thought about reducing it but in the end decided to go full strength and I love it.
