On the heels of finalizing our tile selections last week, I quickly nailed down the vanity and counters. I’ve also chosen the fixtures, but those were a bit more hemming and hawing! My contractor reviewed all of my sink and shower fixtures and gave them his seal of approval before ordering.
We are doing a custom 9′ vanity with a full drawer / cabinet overlay (so you don’t see much of the frame behind the doors) in a light gray color. I chose one with a traditional and slightly decorative wood trim, but with a flat panel door in hopes that it won’t get too busy looking. We will each have a drawer stack, as well as cabinets under our sinks. The sink areas will be bumped out a couple of inches to add interest. Between our sinks, rather than a knee drawer I am hoping to do a small makeup drawer and a cabinet to store a trash can. (ie. Elsa proof) I *think* I’ll do rectangular sinks but we haven’t gotten that far.
We will also have an 84″ tall linen cabinet built in to match. I debated finding a piece of furniture to use as a linen cabinet and decided that it would be easier to fit the space just having one done now.
Here you can see the cabinet choice, with the counter and floor:
This was the first thing I chose for the project and the jumping off point for everything else. It is quartz – Cambira Berwyn. My parents used it in their recent bathroom reno and it is gorgeous. It looks almost like oyster shells and has wonderful glittery flecks throughout. My contractor said this was an expensive choice but I assured him I would cut back on anything else BUT this counter. :-)
All of the tile with counters and cabinets….
After much debate with Mother and Sister, I decided to go with polished chrome fixtures. I realize that people have strong feelings around these things (polished or not, chrome or nickel, this one spots, that one is to harsh, etc.) and so I just picked one and went with it. The previous owners put this exact faucet both in my powder room and guest bathroom and I love them. They have also not given us any trouble in 9 years, so that is valuable insight.
I never thought I could love a shower head, but this one is a beauty. I didn’t set out to find a matching suite of fixtures, it just so happened that this one that went with the faucets was love at first sight!
