To those who have been following along this year, you may remember what I like to call THE.MOST.DISGUISTING.ROOM.EVER.
I can't seem to find the other photos of the original bathroom but lets just say it didn't get any better. This bathroom was off the rooms that became the kitchen. The original bathroom was pretty big so we took some of that space for the kitchen and made this room smaller.
A good deal of thought went into deciding if we should make this a half bathroom or leave it as a full. We didn't really NEED a full bath on the main floor. Ultimately, we decided that the claw foot tub could live in here and we could leave it as a full. I figure the tub can come in handy for future dog/children baths. And even if we rarely use it for whats its intended for, at least we saved the original tub and its pretty too look at. Time will tell if its a practical decision or not.
The layout of this bathroom is one of those things that I made a major boo-boo on. As you can see from the photo, the door swings open right into the tub. How did I miss that detail? Well, I did and it was too late to fix once I did. I suppose I could have the door switched to swing the other way at some point but I'll live with it for now.
Here are the specs in case you're interested:
-tiles are carrera marble - hex on the floor, subway on the wall
-paint is Benjamin Moores "gray owl" (which actually looks a tiny bit green)
-the toilet is a Kohler Memoir
-sink & faucet is Porcher
-mirror, lights & shelf from pottery barn
The walls look really bare in here so I definitely need something on the walls. For some reason, I think the marble tiles would look cool with some high contrast black and whites of the NYC subway or maybe grand central? But Im not sold on that idea either. Open to suggestions.
