Bathroom Project Day 3

bathroom day 3

So today I get home from work a little early to catch up with the contractor and to see how he made out with tiling.  Gotta say its nice to say a project start to come together.  By the end of the day he had the floor and walls done for the tub/shower.

If all goes well the grouting should be done on day 4 and then the rough painting can begin and then the vanity, mirror, light sconce, toilet and cabinet can go in.  I wont count on the grab bars and towel bars  since that would just be too much for one day.  Hey the paint has to dry ya know.

We decided to go with diagonal on the floor with long tile side going horizontal on the shower wall.  The deco going across the wall really adds a nice touch as well as the stone shelves.  Being brighter as well as having the diag cut on the floor should hopefully give it a larger feel being that its a small bathroom to begin with.

As you will see in later posts, the hardware will be chrome that should accent the tiles and wood pretty nicely.

The best part is that the light we had installed in the ceiling that comes with a 140 cfm fan and night light does such a great job lighting that room up that I wonder how much use we will get with the sconce on the wall above the mirror and vanity.  Will be interesting to see.  Not sure why back in the 70’s they only had one little light above the sink that had no way to shine towards the shower so you could see what parts of your body you were cleaning.  Guess back in those days you didn’t need to use your eyes, just feel around and hope you got all the parts clean.

And just for clarification…this is the hallway bath that is basically the public bathroom.  Our master bath is up next once this is completed…but I have to be careful with that term master bath.   These homes don’t have “large” bathrooms so don’t think its like a Mc Mansion style bathroom by any stretch of the imagination.
