Before & After Bathroom

Thursday, June 17, 2010

We selected new light fixtures from Robinson Lighting to go throughout the residence in an antiqued brown finish, coordinating the finish of the lights with other oil rubbed bronze finishes throughout the home. Oil rubbed bronze finishes in the bathroom include the new sink  faucet, toilet paper holder, towel bar & robe hook from Price Pfister’s Ashfield collection.

The cosmetics cabinet clashed with the wood finish of the vanity so we painted it, Benjamin Moore 2111-60 Barren Plain, and gave it a distressed finish.

The mirror was replaced by a smaller framed mirror to match the wood finish of the vanity. The old medicine cabinet was removed and the hole in the wall behind it patched. The walls were painted Benjamin Moore 2112-50 Stormy Monday. The trim & ceiling were painted, Benjamin Moore 2109-60 Portland Gray, to pick up on the colour tones found in the existing laminate flooring.

Painting the cosmetics cabinet in a light colour gives the vanity more visual impact and ties in nicely with the art, accessories and white plumbing fixtures throughout the space. Placing a few accents in bright pink adds a pop of colour and gives the space interest. All accessories, towels and artwork were purchased from HomeSense.
