I am a few days behind on posting this entry so forgive me. I was just toooo busy trying out our new bathroom. C’mon, have to do quality control on everything to make sure there are no issues.
But I am very content with the outcome and the quality that the contractor provided. As you can see we included a matching vanity with the toilet topper for added storage space. The tub is a deep 20″ soaking tub for those days where you want to play with your rubber ducky with plenty of “Mister Bubbles”. Not sure I can find a “Fuzzy Wuzzy Bear” anymore. If you have no clue what I am talking about, you’re too young.
We opted not to drill holes in the new tile for a shower curtain rod. For now its just a tension bar but perhaps later we may opt to go with a perm rod or just go for sliding doors.
The lighting is vastly improved. We used to have a puny little fluorescent light above the sink that hardly lit the room up. Now with the 3 bulb sconce lighting and the new fan that includes a night light and 2 CFL bulbs, its so easier to see in there.
What you really cant see too much except for a couple shots are the accessories such as the towel ring by the sink, a double rod towel holder (seen in the mirror) and what you cant see..a robe hook off to the side of the door.
Next up is our master bath. That will be in tomorrows blog. Its already been started and is still in demo mode but once the inspector does his blessing, we should be smooth sailing for next week.
So…what the heck does this have to do with photography? Its a bathroom right? You are probably wondering why I would be posting home improvement photos…Wonder no more…Photography is not just about cute babies, landscapes and portraits or small critters taken with a macro lens. Its about color, contrast, texture, lines, shapes, etc. These photos perhaps can help inspire someone later on. One never knows.
The vanity and toiler topper came from Lowes, the others came from a local plumbing supply company. Some of the accessory hardware came from Amazon.com which came in cheaper than some other places. The tiles came locally as well. I believe in supporting your local merchants but as we can all attest to…sometimes you have to find the better deals online.
