Vintage Bathroom - finished pictures

posted by: budge1 on 10.18.2007 at 07:13 pm in Bathrooms Forum

I've waited so long to post these (waiting on fixtures, prints, etc) that I've forgotten most of the details but here is what I remember:

Tile - field tile Daltile 101, trim tile-Banan Appeal, floor tile - 2"hex from Olympia tile

Sink - American Standard Ovalyn (the medium size)

Tub - Toto 1525

Toilet - toto (sorry can't remember which one Dalton or Carrolton?)

Prints - ebay

Cabinets custom made by Sylvain Marin of Marin Construction

Chrome fixtures - Chatham from RH

Knobs and hinges - Lee Valley

Still looking for the perfect towel hooks for back of door (want the Chatham ones from RH but with shipping would come to almost $160 for 4!) If anyone sees them on sale, pleeeeeeease email me.

Couldn't have done it without the help of everyone here. And that is not just a platitude. I had a plan for what would have been a cream and white mess with waaaaaay toooo much stuff going on. The people here and the decor. forum helped me turn that into something that makes me smile everytime I enter. Not to mention the ENORMOUS help on the practical side from the tile and building experts.

A special thanks to Jolynna and Bill V. for the photos they provided while I was figuring this thing out! The rest of the room is still a mess but progress is being made.

RE: How to end shower tile? (Follow-Up #2)

posted by: bill_vincent on 04.01.2010 at 11:54 pm in Bathrooms Forum

No it doesn't. I know what you mean-- your shower is basically a 3 walled alcove, and it can be done either way-- framed with bullnose, or the bullnose ending at the opening.

Here are showers for two brothers I've done in the last year. One I framed, and the other we just ended the bullnose right at the edge of the opening. You decide for yourself which way you like better. Both are (obviously) acceptable:

end with bullnose tile at edge instead of wrapping around.

RE: How much do frameless glass shower doors cost? (Follow-Up #8)

posted by: festusbodine on 03.09.2010 at 11:15 pm in Bathrooms Forum

That price sounds like where our quote is supposed to come in for this shower. There will be 2 panels on either side, with the door in the middle. Had to panels on the side in order to avoid breaking up the chair rail. Around $1500 is what is expected.

NOTES:

edge of tile meets corner and doesnt' wrap around.

Finally, 1 remodeled bath and 1 new one

posted by: sundownr on 03.15.2010 at 09:27 pm in Bathrooms Forum

We have wanted to remodel the bath rooms in our 1930's house for a long time (we've lived here 16 yrs) but could never make a decision on what to do. Finally decided to just do it. This forum was such an inspiration and I want to thank everyone that posts here. I will say I always wanted more bathroom pictures here so I'm posting mine. :)

The hall bath floor plan wasn't great so I stole closets out of the bedrooms on each side. BR#1 had another closet so no big deal. BR#2 is separated from the master BR by the original master bath and master closet so we decided to give the bath and closet to BR#2 and to convert a spare room (sewing/junk room) into a new master bath & closet.

I went to a couple of tile stores and "made up my mind" more than once. One Saturday I was looking at marble and another customer said - have you seen the porcelain that looks like marble? I hadn't. She showed it to me and I was sold. That's what I used in the hall bath.

It was hard to pick out finishes because I like so many different styles. I did buy the master bath vanity from the Restoration Hdwe outlet and I wish I hadn't. I bought it for the hall bath but then changed the whole floor plan. That meant I had to use it in the master and it was so long that I didn't have many floor plan options because of 6' vanity, windows etc.

I don't know if anyone read my original thread about the bathroom where I asked about a chandelier http://www.thathomesite.com/forums/load/bath/msg1100582713301.html?6 but I ended up picking the "bubble" tile as an accent and decided on this chandelier with the round glass balls. I'm not sure if it "goes" but I don't care. I like it.

What's done is done and I do like love both of them. We had a "bathrooms are finished"/birthday party Saturday and of the 40 people here most of them preferred the hall bath.

The new master closet and bath will be behind that window (which was originally to a porch that was converted to a room years ago).

The towel rack is actually a toilet paper holder. The counter is soapstone.

Dual flush toilet from Home Depot, (love the dual flush) Mercer train rack from Pottery Barn

Pedestal tub from Van Dyke's Restoration. It was the cheapest one from a place that I couldn't find bad reviews of. Plus it's owned by Cabela's.

Copycat pottery barn chandelier from overstock. You can barely see the dropped crown molding with the black paint extended down the wall. There is rope lighting behind the crown for a "night light".

I inherited this cabinet and all of the Lladro from my mom. I've had it for years with no place to put it in our tiny house so it's been boxed up in the basement. Someone else picked paint colors for me and this color is so beautiful in real life - SW Rainwashed. It reminded me of the Lladro so I brought some of it up and I think it looks great in this bathroom. The painting is also from my mom and she and my dad bought it in Spain many, many years ago. This room screamed for the painting, too.

Although the back yard hasn't been completely cleaned of all the remodeling mess, I love the view from the bathroom and can't decide what kind of window covering to use and keep the view.
Photobucket

I was still changing floor plans after the bathroom was demo'd. I (obviously) didn't plan it all that well because I had to buy the freestanding towel rack for the master bath and the hall bath doesn't have a place to hang a towel while you are showering but we'll work it out. :) There isn't any storage in the hall bath so I bought three file boxes from the Container Store for "stuff" and I like them. The basket under the vanity is for dirty washcloths/hand towels. My 15 yr old daughter uses this bathroom.

RE: Wall-mount sliding door on a bathroom? (Follow-Up #2)

posted by: lauraella on 09.08.2008 at 12:24 pm in Bathrooms Forum

Here is one we just put in. It is the hall/kids bath. Door swing was in and hit the tub. This give you so much more room.

Old door

New door

We got the hardware from the website you posted. It is very easy to install. The door is just a tad wider than the opening so that eliminates the gap. Contractor used molding on the inside as well. Right now I have no latch, but will get a hook and eye, as mentioned. Kids pretty much know when the door is closed it is occupied. There really is no issue with privacy at all.

Good Luck,

Laura

RE: Did you tile your shower ceiling? (Follow-Up #28)

posted by: gbsim on 09.20.2009 at 02:01 pm in Bathrooms Forum

We dropped the ceiling in that area to 8' (rest of the room is 9') and tiled on a diagonal.
Also I didn't like the look of wrapping the tile around outside of the shower, so had the tile installers put the bullnose at the inside edge of the wall instead of the typical wrapped border of tile which would have been on the exterior wall. I like the clean look that it gives.

Hi Kate, a header is almost like a bulkhead which appears at the top of the shower. Like in this photo:

Wall tiles: The no name subway tile that was in stock at tile shop finished with victorian cap
Vanity, Medcine Cabinets, Lights, Shelves, Faucet, Towel Bar: Restoration Hardware
