So we've decided to renovate the bathroom this year, since the kitchen reno went so amazingly well last year. The original goal was to install our beautiful claw foot tub that we bought from the folks down the road, but we were going to lose too much linen closet, plus there's a vaulted ceiling in the bathroom so hanging the shower curtain surround rod for the clawfoot would have been difficult, plus we'd have to tile the walls all around the tub, plus we're getting older and it's a big step in, and neither of us like the shower curtains wrapping around our legs as we shower (does anyone?). So, we decided to buy this tub shower instead, and install glass doors. It's the same length as our current tub, but quite a bit deeper, so I should be able to cover most of myself with water when I soak!
I want to use this needle point that my mom made and gave me for Christmas a couple of years ago as my color palette.
The flooring, I'm thinking will be green slate tiles. I like the slightly rough, or riven, look but I think it would just capture the dirt, so I'm thinking of this look, probably with a darker grout so the mildew won't show (if I ever let it get away from me... but I can't see that happening).
Today I found this photo online, of a marble bowl with the matching vanity counter top. I love the look, and want it! Our vanity cabinetry is oak, and fine, but I'm looking for a change on top.
This is what our bathroom looks like now.
Any suggestions, comments and ideas are welcome!!
