The basement remodel is nearing completion! I think. First on the list to be finished is the half-bath. It’s the smallest room (4’x5.5′) so theoretically it should be the easiest. Theoretically. I’ve mentioned my indecision regarding the bathroom lighting and accessories, but thankfully I do already have the basics chosen.
I wanted something that looked like it belonged in our hundred-year-old bungalow, so I looked to our existing original bathroom for style inspiration. I knew all along that I wanted small white hexagons or octagons, and after shopping for tile I chose octagon and dot (with charcoal gray grout to highlight the pattern). Then I found a from the same period as the original one on the main floor. As charming as our vintage sink is though, I didn’t want separate taps for hot and cold water. I did however stick with and they even say “hot” and “cold” on them just like our original ones do. Awww.
I mentioned on that choosing a toilet is not the whirlwind adventure one might expect. One piece or two? Round or elongated? Even with the myriad of choices it’s just not the most exciting thing, right? Someone commented that I should check the when choosing, so that’s what I did. I went with an It’s kind of cute. You know, for a toilet.
I think the rest of the bathroom will come together as soon as I choose a paint color. I’m going with a and I found a that matches the shape of the faucet handle base. There’s a available too, but I’m thinking of going with a cute hook instead (Anthropologie always has a good selection). And for the mirror? Yeah, I still have no clue. I’m liking this but I don’t know if I want to spring for a medicine cabinet when we only really need a mirror.
Thank you, for providing the toilet, sink, and faucet.
