We have started the gathering stage of the powder room renovation. We will probably start tearing out everything this weekend. Exciting! Below is the official lookbook for the bathroom, as we have finally picked colours and items for the room.
Here is the bathroom as it currently sits. We are changing everything except the toilet and the floor. In fact we will be adding to the floor. We found extra tiles in storage that we will use to cover up the hole left behind when we take out the vanity. I'm not a big fan of the flooring but it continues into the kitchen, so we will change it at the same time as a kitchen renovation. We will also have to add more baseboard behind the current vanity, but we are now baseboard pros. We recently replaced the ceiling fan so that's all set to go.
We are planning to turn the current mirror sideways (if it doesn't break during the process). It's quite tall, and I thought it would look neat going all the way across the wall, covering both the sink and toilet. Originally we wanted to add a funky mirror, like this, but practicality won out. As Jeff stands a foot taller than I, we noticed with the fun mirror, only one of us would be able to see our selves depending where it was hung. So we decided to stick with a regular mirror. However, I still think it will look quite modern, with its clean lines. Then we will add new track lighting to sit across the top of the mirror (as seen below).
I also ended up getting the towel bar, toilet paper holder, and soap dispenser at CB2 (pictured below).
Below was our inspiration for the vanity. Of course this is much fancier than we will be doing, not to mention we have a much smaller space. However, we are buying a sink/vanity top and then building a shelf underneath using planks of wood. Should look pretty neat!
We picked paint by Behr called Bermudan Blue. It's a dark blue mixed with a bit of green. I think it will be quite rich in the small space, giving it a luxurious feel. I also found this fun drawing (below) I think will look great on the wall. Can't wait to see how it looks! Lots of work ahead, I will post more next week on our progress. Wish us luck!
