The bathrooms in the condo were hideous, cheap fiberglass tubs / showers, cheap cabinets, aged fixtures. When we were planning Jay's bathroom, I kept saying, "what ever you want dear!" It is only money, we can't take it with us. The end result, is stunning. It is a small space, and being a condo, there is nothing we can do to make the space larger, but every surface is finished. He had all of the walls tiled to the ceiling, with that six inch high glass-mosaic tile band ($500 worth of tile, and hours and hours of labor to install that.) I love the backlit mirror so much, I have ordered one of my bathroom. The cabinets were custom made, adding the linen closet on left. These pictures don't show the $1,700 in custom glass shower doors. It is a small space and to make the most of it, the doors were made to fit. For what it cost, I dubbed it the Potty Palace.
I went with the dark cabinet and brushed nickel fixtures for my bathroom. I ended up with custom cabinets that will maximize every inch of the limited space available, (an extra $2,000 over going with a stock cabinet from Home Depot that would always be too narrow for the space.) I picked a tile for the shower that melts my heart everytime I see it - even if it is $23 a square foot. My shower doors are a stock product at about half the cost of custom, but still the best by one of the best manufacturers. In the end, I am spending about the same amount on Potty Palace 2 and we I did on number 1. Remodeling the two bathrooms are going to cost about what I paid for my first home, in 1982.

Listen, you did a great job!!!! And wise choices. Not only do they looked good, but they make the space feel bigger then it is...which is a great result. Shall I bring a bottle of champagne to christen the Potty Palaces?ReplyDelete
When the second one is finishedDelete
has jay christened his potty palace? and is the shower big enough for 2 (or more)?ReplyDelete
No ribbon cutting yet. The shower is far too small for two or more.Delete
Gorgeous. Cheerful. Bright. Love it. And, oh, inflation!ReplyDelete
My bathroom will be dark and moody, and expensive.Delete
Beautiful! "Enjoy the go!"ReplyDelete
Looks great, but serves the same function,Delete
The backlit mirrors look fantastic. We renovated our bathrooms last year but they already had wall to wall mirrors, so we didn't think of upgrading them. Perhaps we should have. Ha, we often say to each other, we can't take it with us.ReplyDelete
I wanted / needed a higher counter top / sink (my spine does not bend like it use to.) So we need to remove and raise the existing mirror and medicine cabinets. The medicine cabinets are easy to remove (I agreed to remove and repaint them as part of the process, the existing mirror is glued to the wall and will need to be replaced (90% chance it will not come off the wall in one piece.)Delete
