Thanks for your patience (or impatience if your name is Suzanne!) waiting on me to post photos of our new guest bathroom. There are still a few tiny details to complete, but I can't wait any longer!
This was the before plan of the bathroom (not drawn to scale):
The previous owners had turned the hall closet into a wet bar area. Since this space is down in our basement, we really did not use the bar area. We wanted to add a shower to this bathroom so we decided to expand into the bar closet. The wall was concrete block so that made things a little more difficult. Here are some before photos of the bar closet:
It was definitely a little outdated. The wallpaper in the closet was pretty bold.
I guess it was supposed to look like bamboo shades? The floor was rubber tile that is usually used in garages. It reminded me of Legos.
The same floor tile was used in the bathroom. Here are before shots of the bathroom:
Here is the new plan for the bathroom:
And here are photos:
I had the contractors build a custom vanity and stain it a light blueish-gray. I love the way it came out. We reused the old mirror and they built a new frame for it. The light fixture is Pottery Barn. The sink and faucet are from Lowes. The floor tile is marble that I found at a local stone place. The wall tile is also marble. It came as 12x12 squares from Home Depot. I had the contractors cut it in half and lay it in a brick pattern. It was time-consuming for them but I think it was definitely worth it.
I made the cafe curtains earlier this week and I am not sure if I am going to keep them or not which is why they are currently hanging from a shower rod. I don't want to invest in new hardware until I decide if I like them. I may just hang a Roman shade...
That's it - I hope you like it! We are really happy and can't wait to get started on the rest of the bathrooms in our house!
I hope to show you the guest room soon! I am still looking for a few pieces of furniture to finish off that room but I promise to post pics as soon as possible!
