Okay, so as you know the husband and I are in the process of remodeling our bathroom. We finally made it out to the tile shop yesterday. Most of these places close at 5:00 and are only open a few hours on Saturday….which has made things take a little longer.
Here is my design inspiration. I love this bathroom! The floor is gorgeous, but crazy expensive.
And here is the tile I selected! I’m so excited about it. The piece on the left is marble for the floor (but will be 12×12) and the white subway tile is for the shower (actual size is shown). It was so awesome to be able to walk into the shop and actually see the two tiles together. And of course it also helped that the design guy working with us loved my ideas!
Next we have to go to a glass shop to pick out an all glass European enclosure for the shower. We also have to pick out a counter top….and here is where I need your help!
Here is our current bathroom. The big ugly mirror is coming down and will be replaced by two smaller mirrors. Now, what should I do with the counter top? Would it look to weird/matchy matchy to do a marble similar to the tile floor? The husband thinks we should do something black on the counter…but I think it would be a pain to keep clean. Between the dog and cat hair we have everywhere and little drips of water from the sink I am afraid every little thing will show. So I would prefer something lighter. If we did do a white/light counter top would it be too much white if we paint the cabinets white too? Should they be black? I just can’t decide!
I think we are going to paint the walls some shade of blue….haven’t decided yet! I also wanted to do beadboard in here but I think we are going to pass on that for now…we can always add it later.
So I need your help….any ideas/recommendations?
