But, before we get to the good stuff, let's look back at the progress this main bathroom has been through.
This is the room when we first took possession last October...
Then, we switched out the counters, sink, faucet, and lighting (the room is actually beige, not yellow like the picture seems to show below)...
And here's how it looks now...
We decided to run the glass mosaic tile vertically since the space isn't very wide, and I figured running it horizontally might just enhance that fact. By installing it vertically, it draws the eye up.
It's funny actually. The other day, I was looking around the room, and the only things that haven't been touched or changed are the floor and shower tiles, the cabinets, the toilet, the trim, and the shower head (which will eventually be swapped out to a brushed nickel finish).
The artwork and decorative items all stayed the same as the original bathroom. I might change the basket of hand towels once I find something suitable, but until then, it does the job. The large vase with river rock and a floating candle was one of the centrepieces from our wedding (we made one extra so we could keep it), and the variety of seashells in the smaller vase are from our trip to Honduras that we took in 2011. I like the fact that both of these decorative items adds an organic feel to the space.
