A Better Bathroom

Bathroom Final From HallAfter neverending work on my new bathroom, it was promptly flooded and (parts) had to be redone. It was pretty upsetting, and it turns out that my neighbor has bargain-basement “insurance”–good thing I have State Farm. Due to a number of things, including discovering additional damage that meant tearing out the shower floor and redoing it, the bathroom was only fully finished LAST WEEK. For those of you keeping track at home, that makes it FIVE MONTHS of not having a completed bathroom. Ugh.

But finally FINALLY it’s finished. Art on the walls, boxes on the shelves and towels on the hooks DONE.

And some details of the shower:

Shower floor tile is 1x2 marble tiles that look like minis of the floor tile.

Other details:

The bathroom floor is marble subway tile installed in a straight herringbone. Just enough interest without making the small footprint too busy.

Between the open shelf on the bottom of the vanity and the cabinet, it has a ton of storage.

Baskets on the shelves hide ugly chargers. I also put the thermostat for the heated floors and the outlet ABOVE the first shelf, making them easier to cover up--and less distance for cords to have to stretch.

The cubbies hold a ton--I have an ugly plastic cleaning caddy on that middle shelf (look for that artwork in a later post!)

I put a cabinet in when we found a hole above where my coat "closet" ends...its tough to reach, but never say no to storage!

Anything else you want to know? I can’t tell you how relieved I am to have this finally DONE.
