Tuesday Serious Decorating
OK, back to Hubby’s bathroom… here are a few of my thoughts and pics. The nice thing about hubby’s bathroom is that it’s a decent size. By far bigger than the master, which is mine? I’m ripping everything out; down to the frame. Though due to budget constraints the plumbing will stay where it is. It’s fine; the layout is galley style and it works especially for just one person.
Hubby will get a double sink, a new custom built-in tub, pretty white subway tiles, polished nickel fixtures, nice detailed white molding, and a new low flush Kohler toilet (whether he wants it or not). Also, a coffee bar so we can store our huge collection of Starbucks mugs. I don’t have the heart to throw them away (if you only knew everything else that I tossed)! The coffee bar will be good; he won’t have to track up and down the steps when he brings me my morning java…how sweet for him. And finally he’ll get some very much needed nice new fluffy towels. I have refused to spend one dime on this bathroom until the gutting process has begun. If you could only see the shower liner.
They only negative is that I can’t add a separate shower with seamless door. But, oh well, poor Hubby will have to make do! For the sink, what I want is a double carrera marble vanity. Also, I’ve not been able to decide on the floor. The bathroom is nice size; I was thinking marble or travertine. Again, the cost of marble…hmmm! Since I’ve had a hard time deciding, I just broke down the other day and asked Hubby what he wanted. I thought after all, it is his bathroom and he likes the penny tile, which I’ve used before, and he is in luck, I like it too!
Here are the pics that I’ve already sent to Frank for pricing. We’re getting there!!!
Hubby's bathroom has a nice big window at the end, just like here. I suggested to Frank that one of the closets in Hubby's bathroom that we could turn into the coffee bar. Using this pic as an example.
I saw this bathroom here in Atlanta on a home tour. I loved everything about it! For Hubby's bathroom I'm going to have Frank do the molding like theirs above the double vanity. Pic from Atlanta Home's & Lifestyles
Since I can't do a freestanding tub, I'm going to have Frank do a more custom look like this one here.
Love this bathroom by Gil Schafer "The Great American House".
Oh, my absolute favorite bathroom by Michael Smith. I spent Sat. night and Sun. morning ahhhing over Michael's Kitchen & Baths & Gil's The Great American House! More on this later!
