Black & White Painted Bathroom Remodel
submitted by Sweet Disposition
BEFORE: Dated, dingy looking, leaking faucets, ugly shower door.
DURING: Adding another electrical plug, there was only one and we had to take turns to plug the flat iron, razor, etc. Doing the electrical work for two sets of lights, before there was just one vanity light in between the sinks. Nothing wrong with that but I wanted to have separated spaces for each sink. Taking down the shower door and the tile all around. Also the vanity top, sinks and installing a Bidet.
AFTER: A contemporary bathroom. I’m so happy how everything turned out. We kept the vanity, we painted it white and bought new handles. Had a new top and demi-vessel installed. We cut the existing mirror in half and Randy made two new frames. The color pallet is Chimney Smoke from Valspar for the walls, Bistro White also from Valspar for the vanity, doors, window, mirror frames and baseboard, Pure White for shower curtain, rugs, roman shade and shelves, Brushed Nickel for faucets, handles and all other metal accessories. I love the 6 inch backsplash I think it brings together the wall color and vanity top so well.
My friend asked me why we have portrait pictures in our bathroom, she thinks is weird. I like to think that a bathroom deserves the same attention as the rest of my home. Why not to have a couple of pics there? I wanted my bathroom to feel comfortable and personal. She told me:-“ I for sure will turn the pictures around before using the bathroom, I don’t want you guys staring at me!” She’s so funny. The other weird thing we have is the Bidet. My husband spent two years in Argentina and he fell in love with them, he also installed one in our previous house. It’s for sure a conversation starter!!
