Finished Bathroom Pics (two bathrooms!)--very pic heavy

13 years ago

I finally took pics of our Master Bathroom and Hall Bathroom. Both bathrooms are small (MB is 5x7 the Hall Bathroom is 5x8), and therefore, very difficult (nearly impossible) to photograph well. Pictures really don't do them justice (they really do look nicer in person!). A friend of ours plans to take some pics for us with his camera, equipped with a wide angle lens, so I'll post some of those pics when he takes them.

The bathrooms were pretty bad before (and that's being kind!). We stuck it out for over 11 years, rather than take any intermediate measures (e.g. to make them slightly nicer), knowing that nothing short of a full gut-job would help (and we really didn't want to a) open a can of worms by removing any walls, tile, etc., or b) throw good money after bad).

So, starting last spring, we embarked on a 6+ month double-bathroom renovation. DH did all the demolition and construction. We had an awesome tile guy and an equally wonderful plumber. We had to work around each other's schedules at times (the old, "hurry up and wait"), but, as it often does, it all worked out in the end.

We were very lucky to work with some wonderful salespeople as well: a special shout-out to Sean at Hardware-Designs in Fairfield, NJ for our bathroom fixtures--you are the best! And for our tile and marble, thanks to all the folks at Greene and Roth in Bardonia, NY, Porcelanosa in Ramsey, NJ, and K&K Marble on LI. The guys at The Paint Can in Pearl River, NY very patiently endured my numerous visits, questions, and multiple sample purchases as we tried to choose just the right paint colors. DH was extremely impressed with the folks at Nu-Heat (and now that the weather has gotten colder, we are really enjoying our toasty floors!).

For us, all the research, planning, and work paid off. We finally have bathrooms we can enjoy using and very much enjoy looking at. Despite their small size, they are more than adequate for our needs and we are thrilled with they way they turned out--hooray!!!!

I'm including some before and after shots here, but you can take a look at a bunch more in my photobucket albums if you'd like:
