My Ideas And Wishes For My Master Bath Renovation

 This is the current state of my bathroom. 


    Last week I talked about my bathroom renovation project. Go here to see that post.  http://www.momknowsbest.net/2016/12/my-bathroom-transformation.html. My bathroom project is at a stand still as we wait for the tile people to tile the floor and the shower. The tile work will be done December 29th -31st. My husband and I did order the vanity top from Lowes as it takes 2-3 weeks for it to be made. We decided to order the vanity top from http://www.onyxcollection.com/ as we like the way it looked. I also like the way the sink and counter are all one piece. The top will be in a color called Mystique and the sink will be Amethyst. I think these colors will go nice with the tile that we selected for the floor and shower. We selected a grey marble tile for the shower and a black marble tile for the floor. Sorry no pictures of those.



   I also did a lot of searching for the vanity for the sink top and this is what I liked. I found these at Lowes. These vanities are from the Wyndham collection in espresso. I end up selecting the one on the right as it was made for the two sinks. The one on the left was made for a one sink in the middle.


 The toilet was an easy selection as most look the same. I just wanted one that was easy to keep clean as we have very hard water. I also wanted it to be chair height, up until now I never knew that I could get a potty in chair height. American Standard has this EverClean surface that is suppose to keep the toilet clean. I sure hope it works as our toilets always have hard water stains on them.


    The shower door also took some time to select as my husband and I liked the style of one door and the color of another. We really like the dark bronze look for our shower as we already had a dark bronze shower head from Delta that I tested a while back. We selected this door from Arizona Shower from Lowes as we loved the dark color. The door also has a patterned to it so it will hide those water spots. We selected Lowes for many of items as we will be able to use my son's military discount.


Selecting the lights and mirror was the worst for us as I wanted something unique that I just was not able to find in the stores or online. After several days of searching, I found this light at Wayfair and just love how it looks.
After much searching and compromise with my husband, I selected this mirror from HomeDepot. I wanted oval mirrors but my husband wanted rectangle. I was will to compromise when my husband agreed to this mirror. I just love the sea glass look.

The last item that we have selected so far was a bookcase. The area where the old shower use to be was a perfect spot for some storage. I did not want a closet as I tend to stuff things into them. So I thought that an open book case would help me to be more organized. It was hard finding a book case as the space was too small for my favorite bookcase. I narrowed my selection down to three and let my husband make the selection. He decided with the one in the middle. I think this will be great for towels and baskets with extra items like toilet paper. I will also use vases and jars for storage of items.


 This weekend my husband and I will be painting the walls in a light gray. Then the tile people will do their work. I am hoping by the end of December that we will be able to install all the above items. Then I will have the fun of decorating the bathroom. I will continue to share with you the progress and of course the final pictures when this bathroom is complete. I would love to hear ideas and suggestions on how to decorate and organize the bathroom. Please share pictures or ideas especially ones of how to decorate my bookcase.
