After putting up with only one bathroom, the expense, the shopping time, the dust and the finding of the previous owner’s pictures of his penis (yes, you just read that and if you haven’t heard the story you can here) we finally have a newly remodeled bathroom. It turned out beautifully and is officially the nicest room in our house.
Here are a few pictures…
This is a view of the sink and commode.
(As a side, you might be able to make out that I put the tissue on the roll going over, not under. At a party a few months ago I had to replace the roll when I used the bathroom so of course I put it on going ‘over’, but when I had to use the restroom a little later I noticed that it had been changed to ‘under’. I guess I’m not the only anal person out there but if you’re going to be anal about T.P. at least do it right…which is over. Just sayin’)
The color of the porcelain looks white but it’s actually biscuit. Now the difference in color may seem minor but apparently there is a difference….
Okay, back to The Nicest Room in My House. This is the shower…
…and a close up. We had a shelf integrated for soap, shampoo, etc.
Here is the floor in the shower. Though the tile would be too slippery used in larger pieces, we installed 3/4” tiles which allowed for more grout lines making it less slippery and safer.
This is the floor tile and the baseboard. We chose to use the same small sized tile used on the shower floor and trim in the shower for the baseboard…it tied it all together.
All of the tile is travertine, which is a natural stone and though it’s hard to see in the photos the floor is actually very rustic looking with a cross between the smooth surface of tile and the natural look of stone. Though it is quite porous I think it won’t be that much upkeep as it is our spare bathroom. I love the look of it and we were fortunate enough to have an ‘in’ at a tile wholesaler near my place of work, which basically meant we paid almost the same as if we had bought ceramic.
Yes, this bathroom is the nicest room in my house and if Home Depot is looking for advertising space…I’m available .
