Let's recap. The lighting has been replaced. The oil rubbed bronze towel holders and toilet paper holder have been installed. The room has been repainted. The hand shower has arrived. But, we are still in waiting mode for a few things. We will need a plumber to install the shower head and lever. We have an old set-up, so it looks like it will be complicated to install ourselves. We may also have to do that with the tub faucet. Also, we are gathering quotes on a new shower enclosure to see if it might be worth getting a frameless one instead. I love how open they look and it would also enhance our resale value when we sell our house one day. However, we're finding out that you need a stud to attach the glass to in order to support the weight of the glass. So, we have lots of figuring out to do. Here is a picture of a frameless shower enclosure in case you're not sure what it looks like.
It's expensive, but if it could be installed, it MIGHT just be a better option for us. You see I've been enjoying how open our bathroom feels without the framed shower enclosure in there. The bathroom feels so much more spacious! I think it will come down to whether it is possible to install it more than anything. These are better to be installed when you gut your bathroom or your house is under construction.
In the meantime, here is a pic of the curtains above the tub. I just couldn't help myself but to do SOMETHING pretty in there while we wait on everything else to be done.
I've been enjoying using these curtains too. They slide across and close so we have privacy. They're much prettier than the wooden blinds. Hmm.......maybe those will be removed eventually.
And, so the room doesn't feel too "sweet", I have this dark charcoal rug on the floor.
By adding this along with the dark oil rubbed bronze fixtures, the room will not be too dainty in feel.
It's a nice contrast actually.
My cabinet hardware is in route to me, and we're awaiting one more quote on the shower enclosure. So, progress is still being made. I have something decorative to spray paint for the toilet room this weekend too. And, if we decide not to go with the frameless enclosure, then we'll spray paint the framing for that too.
I bet you're hoping for this room to be finished, as much as me now, so I will be done talking about it!
Hope you're having a great week so far.
Thanks for stopping by.
