Completed 5 X 7 Hall bathroom

posted by: minac on 12.29.2009 at 11:06 pm in Bathrooms Forum

The hall bathroom is finally done. Thanks as always for all the help thruout the process. Things like the fan, fan switch, going with a slide bar, and the Toto toilet are all thanks to advice I've seen on the board. It's hard to get good pictures since the bathroom is so small but hopefully you can get the idea. The floor tile photo is during the renovation - I forgot to take a photo of the floor after it was all done and the 12x24 Daltile Kimona Silk - sort of fabrique look tile really adds to the look of the bathroom. Things like the train rack over the toilet and going with wall cabinets was to gain more space. I got tired of knocking down bottles of extra shampoo, kids bubble bath, sunscreen etc. in the Linen closet while trying to get towels out. Now, I can put guest towels on the train rack and some of those non-linen items can be stored in the bathroom.

RE: jeanninepc99, any pictures of your finished bathroom? (Follow-Up #1)

posted by: jeanninepc99 on 06.13.2009 at 10:46 am in Bathrooms Forum

I'm only just seeing this now! I'm so sorry.

First and foremost, I documented most of the remodel on my Flickr page and Mrs. Limestone also had a post about my bath on her blog.

Here are some of the "final" pictures. That's in quotes because I still haven't figured out what I'm doing with the shower...curtain or glass?

(to show the light fixture without the light on)

Tile: Carerra (sp?) marble subway, basketweave, chair rail, and baseboard, all purchased from an ebay seller

Paint: BM Quiet Moments on walls, SW Spare White on ceiling and doors

Sink, fixtures, & Toilet: Kohler Memoirs Stately
Tub: No change, builder grade

Chandelier: Ebay purchase

Light fixture: Bellacor, I don't remember the model

Towel ring, mirror, countertop accessories: Restoration Hardware's Dillon line (supposedly this line is being discontinued)

Let me know if I didn't cover anything!

Photos of AO Catarina Coliseum White tile

posted by: gitananoel on 07.29.2008 at 10:21 am in Bathrooms Forum

Does anyone have this tile in their bathroom? Did you use it for the floor or (and) wall. I need to visualize.

If you used it for the floor, what color and size tile for the wall.
How about paint color.

Is it easy to clean the Catarina white coliseum tile.

Matching colors and different sizes of tiles is my worst subject.

I appreciate the help.

Here's mine, with more storage than I can actually use (that, I think, is the ultimate luxury!). It's a custom maple unit, inspired by one I saw on the web.

Our completed Master Bath/Dressing Room

posted by: compumom on 03.07.2007 at 07:26 am in Bathrooms Forum

We've just completed an exhausting 11 month addition of a master bathroom and remodel of the existing closet/dressing area/and master bath into one very large closet/dressing area/retreat. I'm posting photos at this early stage so that you can see what we did. I'm very happy with the result, however, as always there are things now that I would do differently. I've not even begun to decorate or accessorize, just moving back in is a monster chore.
The diamond paned windows are integral to the rest of the front of the house and so I had to continue them in the MB as well. One day I'll change the entire house to mullioned which matches the french doors on the rear.
I'm very open to suggestions for window treatments. Privacy is not an issue at all, I just want to soften the look with maybe a cornice box and definitely padded to absorb some of the echo factor in this hard space. Any other decor ideas are welcome too.

my master bath makeover is DONE!

posted by: flash407 on 07.15.2007 at 11:51 pm in Bathrooms Forum

We totally overhauled our home and redid the master bath. We tore out the original 1965 bathroom and reconfigured space to make it larger. We also added about 130 sq. ft. for the closet.

We are really enjoying it!

Photos of our new bathroom

posted by: aktillery on 07.21.2007 at 03:07 pm in Bathrooms Forum

Our bath is finished. It is funny as I posted questions well over a year ago about what to use for my vanity base.

I thought I would share some photos.

The granite is autumn frost (looks like delicatus) and the floor is travertine. The tile is the bath are polished botticino marble in 12X6. My dh cut them down from 12X12 and even beveled the edges!

Here are the fabrics I'm working with, I hope to move them to this next house....the valances will go in the breakfast room that will be wide open to the living room and hoping to get these drapes into the living problem is that the bookcase extends out in front of the window so I might have to make new toppers furniture coordinates with all these, sage chairs, plaid couch with all those colors in them and I'll be buying a square ottoman in a tweed type fabric with button holes...

RE: Are double sinks a waste of space? (Follow-Up #13)

posted by: mongoct on 06.17.2007 at 10:18 pm in Bathrooms Forum


The wall is load bearing and capped by a beam. The vent from the toilet stack comes out of the wall, into the bath , and around the beam.

ABOVE: You can see by the pic that the soffit is, shall we say...just big enough to hide the vent above the toilet. Hah!

The reason I made it so large was to create a bit of balance between the top of the closet on the far left and what would have otherwise been a miniscule soffit over the toilet on the far right. See the pic below.

I brought the pillar down from the soffit to the teak countertop on top of the 48" tall cabinet that's just to the left of the toilet to balance things out on the wall. It makes the left sconce the same distance from the left closet as the right sconce is from the pillar on the right.

So yeah, it's overkill. But in person, when you can see the entire room, it looks nice. It makes everything to the left and to the right of the central sink feel balanced.

You can see from the replies that the answer is up to you.

How you and your spouse get along, how the two of your groom, are you compatible in terms of cleanliness, will you both be needing exclusive use of the sink at the same time, etc.

I'm along the same lines as you. I always thought I'd have two sinks in my master bathroom.

My bath is spacious enough...around 250 sqft or so...but we realized that for us, a second sink would be a waste of money, a waste of counterspace, and use-wise, we both prefered one large sink over two smaller ones.

I'm not a slob, neither is my wife. When we use the bath together, there's no conflict.

In our case, after the decision was made to go with one sink my original thought was to add a sit-down area for my wife. She didn't want that, as she prefers to primp while standing.

So on the sink wall, I have a floor-to-ceiling closet at the near end of the picture, then a 6'long countertops with a single large sink, then a tall 48" cabinet at the end of the run to hide the toilet. The top drawer of the 48" tall cabinet has outlets in it, so she keeps her curling iron/blow dryer permanently plugged in. The bottom drawer in the 48" cabinet is almost like a pull-out pantry, it's divided in two vertically. The sink side is sort of like her medicine cabinet, the toilet side holds TP, toilet cleaning supplies, etc.

In the end, she's thrilled with how it looks and how it "works".

I'm happy as I saved $$ by not having to do a second sink and faucet, and that I was able to build the cabinets for "smart storage", in terms of everything being in a logical place.

I thought I'd post a link to my photobucket account with the homeshow pics we took this weekend. I took almost 200!! Some of it being my style some of it I thought would appeal to the many tastes here. Ignore some of the captions as I was making notes for myself about certain things in the room or for a client. Feel free to save pics to your computer! Enjoy!!
