since we are now going to finish the "extra" bath in the upstairs, i am in high gear trying to make some selections for it.
since this bath will be used primarily for my son, and i don't need a ton of storage, i want to use a freestanding vanity with some open storage. after doing some research, and showing the cabinet maker some pictures of what i wanted, it became pretty clear that it was going to be less expensive to buy something already made. i looked at a lot of sources online, and kept coming back to restoration hardware. they have a terrific selection of vanities, and while they tend to be a little expensive, they were less than having one custom made at a local cabinet shop.
i really, really like the look of this vanity, from the pharmacy collection:
so...i looked into my second favorite, the hutton vanity:
and then, i decided to check out the sale department, and i spotted the logan vanity:
i think it will look great with what i eventually want to put on the floors....
i would LOVE to do a patterned concrete tile. i found this amazing pattern here that i am dying over:
its from villa lagoon tile, and they custom color their tiles! i really like this olive green color, but i also like the idea of a grey and cream. maybe one day....for now, we are going to have to do something cheaper.
i purchased two of these lights at joss and main a while back. they look a LOT like the mason hammered iron pendant from arteriors, but were a fraction of the cost.
i was originally going to use them in my downstairs mudroom/hallway, but i think i want to use them in this bathroom instead. i am thinking that i want one centered over the sink, and another centered over the toilet.
i originally wanted to install a wall mount faucet like this:
but the cost to change the plumbing was going to be a bit higher, and my contractor (husband) informed me that if they are more difficult to service if there were any issues. even though we found plenty of cheap wall mount faucets on ebay and overstock, he wanted to stick with a trusted brand, and the cost of the ones we liked were too high for our budget. SO, we are sticking with a "regular" counter top mounted faucet.
i would like to get a honed black marble or granite top, but we may end up putting in laminate until we can swap it out for a stone countertop.
it is right around $4 a square foot, and is available in many colors and 2 finishes---matte and semi-gloss. i used the semi-gloss tile in biscuit around the fireplace in house #2
i am considering using a grey color, but the white is also a strong contender.
i really like the way the grey looks in this bath.
what do you think? would you stick with white, or do something a little different, like the grey?
