Here we go guys! Welcome to my new b + w bathroom! I can’t begin to tell you how much I am loving this space. When I first started I knew I wanted a white bathroom and I didn’t want to do an entire reno. My compromise was to paint, accessorize and to replace fixtures like lights and faucets with chrome to coordinate with existing chrome fixtures for a more cohesive feel.
This is my one and only bathroom, yikes! So I wanted it to be bright, welcoming and clean.
Because counter space is an issue I added a small side table to hold bits and pieces I don’t want falling down the drain.
I also added a basket to the back of my toilet for an additional resting spot for things like glasses, tissues, and usually a pile of hair-bands. I really don’t know why I didn’t add one of these sooner.
The faucet was replaced with one with a higher neck. We had to cram our hands into the wall of the sink to wash them, so it was a real no brainer when it came time to replace it.
I painted the vanity white instead of replacing it which, if I could do again, I’d replace it. I think the paint looks fabulous and overall it’s a great improvement, so it’s a keeper for now. I think a new one would have looked phenomenal, but you gotta draw the line somewhere right?
I did replace the medicine cabinet unexpectedly and i love the simple frameless look of the mirror. Not to mention all the mirrors on the inside and the glass shelving.
I debated long and hard on replacing the light fixture and in the end I decided to do it. The one we had up was not my taste and it was brushed nickel. By adding a light fixture with chrome completely unified the space. And I don’t have to look at that ugly off-center monstrosity anymore.
And just to remind you where I started, here’s a side by side before and after shot.
