Bathroom Updates

Both of the bathrooms needed serious updates in this house.  So we started with the upstairs full bath.  It was completely gutted and then new electrical, plumbing and insulation were installed in a different layout, to make the room feel more spacious.  After that, the fun started!

Here's the mood board for the bathroom, with lots of classic details. 

I installed 'dogbone' Carrera marble floors (it's called dogbone, because instead of a perfect rectangle basketweave, the Carrera pieces have a gentle curve to them). 

The bathroom already had a nice built in cabinet, but we discovered a lot of additional open space under the dormer, so Kyle & Rich built a set of shelves to provide extra storage space. 

The bathroom had beadboard on the walls when we bought it and I really liked the style, so we added it back to the updated bath.  And I love this vanity - the serpentine front drawers and countertop are such a nice detail! 

It's still a work in progress, but it's going to be pretty sweet!

The basement bath was truly original!  And as I mentioned in this previous post, having the electrical panel above the toilet was an absolute no-no from the City, so all the wiring got rerouted.  We can't move the water meter, but we're hoping it will be less conspicuous once the updates are done. 

Like the upstairs bath, we redid the electrical and added insulation. We also had to pour lots of leveler on the floor, because it was seriously sloping.  That let me install this fabulous tile, that I'm absolutely in love with! 

Next week the walls go back up and we can start to install plumbing fixtures.  Here's the mood board with all the elements, won't it be fabulous?
