Remember This? Bathroom Remodel Update (2)

Bathroom remodeling ideas abound on the internet with ideas for everything from removing and installing new bathroom cabinets, to upgrading bathroom fixtures and installing a new sink and lavatory. Bathroom cabinets or vanities are a major decorating element in the bathroom while providing essential storage space. The challenge of providing enough storage in a small bathroom is often met with wall cabinet or tall linen cabinet. Pedestal sinks and hanging vanities dominate contemporary bathroom designs. Learn how to improve your bathroom cabinetry with these informative Hubs.

I like to change up my decor often. So, as you can see from these photos all of the big (read: costly) changes we made in the bathroom were subtle. We used a lot of white. This way I can easily switch out things like towels, shower curtains and rugs to change the look of the room, with only a minimal amount of work. Oh! my! would that I could bring you home with me! Beautiful page and so much advice I should follow!

To keep costs low we selected large subway tile. It creates a classic style, and is relatively inexpensive. Also, because of its larger size, it uses less labor time (helping to keep costs lower and/ or saving you time). We ran the tile tub-surround around the window, and all the way up to the ceiling. Street side is missing the bottom trim. A little thing I’d love to fix but not sure where to find the trim I need.

Those were the days before deadlines, full calendars and responsibilities limited my playtime; where my travel destinations ranged no further than the town pool or soft serve stand and my fears of a cherished antique on wheels bursting apart at highway speeds unknown in its heyday were not on my mind. Both the light fixture and the mirror were original. They were circa 1972, so not quite old enough to be back in fashion again! They had to go!

I have lots of pictures of the bathroom being made new which I’ll be posting soon. It’s just so pretty and clean and it really makes me happy. For now I’ll leave you with a few photos I used for color inspiration. I had already worked out the design aspect on my own. This lens makes me jealous thet my kitchen is so small and the ceiling is too low. It all looks great well done.
