We just passed the three year anniversary of our bathroom remodel.
We still love it.
With the help of a designer, we made some design choices that we hope can withstand the test of time.
Several months before we started the remodel, I found mold underneath the tub and shower.
The old shower door was leaking and it wicked under the tile and bathtub.
It was the incentive we needed to get this done.
The old spa tub was huge and took up so much floor space.
He had to smash it into pieces to get it out of the room.
I was at work that day so I missed the numerous trips it took to get this out of the house and into the truck.
I'm not sad that I missed that.
Our new clawfoot tub gives us so much more square footage.
It is gorgeous and I use it everyday.
We still love the black vanities with the black granite tops.
The granite is a bit of a pain to keep clean but they are pretty.
I hate cleaning tooth brush holders so Bill is using a jelly jar.
When it's too gross to get clean, I can pop it in the recycle bin.
I had a chandelier above the tub.
It would have been a hazard had it been wired but it wasn't, so it was purely decorative.
I took it down because I kept hitting my head on it.
Several people freaked out because it wasn't to code.
You should not be able to touch your chandelier while standing in the bathtub.
Practicality won out over beauty in this situation.
The shower doors have stayed pretty clean and clear.
Bill squeegees them faithfully.
I don't really use the shower.
We have a little maintenance to do on the grout.
We didn't caulk it and the tile guy neglected to mention that we should.
I need Bill to go out of town for a few days so I can get that done.
It has to dry thoroughly before and after caulking.
A few simple white details with yellow accents keep it fresh for summer.
Thanks for stopping by and having a look at our summer bathroom.
