Basically I want to take the "builder basic" out of my bathroom. here is what we are starting with:
|Crowded Towel Storage|
|Outdated and crowded sink|
I have never been fond of this vanity. The light wood with the detail does not fit the style of the condo (the doors and kitchen cabinets are flat and modern). The countertop it just boring cheap countertop and honestly, it wasn't a great install.
See? That isn't even a straight cut and the edges are all worn now. The only issue is that my sink area is in an alcove in the wall- and it is unfortunately 33.5" inches across, which is NOT a standard vanity size. Could be a challenge
I don't like the floors in here. They are off-white, which is odd because the shower tiles are beige and the kitchen tiles are white. So why off-white? I do not like. Also, the grout is dark, which looks dirty all the time.
|And there is a chip in one!|
I think just changing up these two things will really help transform the space. I am currently also considering redoing the shower tile and putting up a glass shower door. As I have said, I don't want to spend a lot of money.
One of the first things I think I am going to tackle is the vanity. I really prefer a dark wood one. I want to see if I can restain the vanity, and then all I would need is to get a custom cut counter and an undermount sink (sexy!) and a tap. No idea what that would cost so clearly I have some homework to do.
If I can't work with my existing vanity, I will buy a new one. Here is my question for that- would it look weird if it doesn't go wall to wall in the alcove? I worry I will constantly drop things down the side. haha.
Anyway, I can't decide on the floor until the vanity is done because if I buy a new one with legs (my current one just has a kickboard) then the tile will need to extend under the vanity.
I can't make decisions so this is just going to be interesting!!
Now, back to my vanity. I am pretty sure it is veneer. Can I lightly sand and restain veneer?
Finally, to finish, here are some inspiration photos!
