Come on in and let's chat about our recent bathroom makeover journey! You know those home improvement projects that have been looming on your to-do list forever? Well, our bathroom revamp was one of those. After months of talking and planning about it, we finally rolled up our sleeves and got down to business. Let us walk you through the whole process…
First off, we had this beautiful vanity from Teodor Vanities waiting to be installed. Ordered it online and it only took about 3 weeks to get here, so it was ready before we were. At first I was a little worried about it in transit, but when it arrived, my worries were put to rest when I realized how well they packaged it!
The install process was smooth, but definitely a two person job as it was a little heavy. The cabinet came pre-assembled and all we had to do was install the feet, cut out the whole in the back for the plumbing, attach the sink and countertop and install the cabinet handles. I was pretty stoked that the feet had the Leveling Feet at the bottom so I could easily twist the base pad and it made it a breeze to level. Plus you can't even see them once it's done. No need for shims!
Getting the counter top installed is always a potential risk, as cracking the counter would be a nightmare. But thankfully it was incredibly durable and didn't even show any signs of weakness. Just a little bit of silicone under the counter and it's one solid piece now!
Thankfully the cabinet doors came pre-adjusted, and I thought I'd have to readjust from transit, but I didn't at all. Once I leveled the whole cabinet, the doors were perfectly adjusted. I also ended up finding alternative cabinet handles that went with our tone and style of hardware a little closer, and it was nice that it was customizable like that!
Once it was in, dang, it looked good. The Bridgeport 72” Teodor White Oak Vanity not only looked stunning but also offered up a ton of storage space, which was a game-changer for us.
This vanity boasts double sinks that make morning routines a breeze. And when it comes to style, the possibilities are endless. With three countertop options to choose from, including the elegant Miami Vena, you can create a vanity that's as functional as it is fashionable. Plus, with customizable features like sink material and hardware, you can truly make it your own.
Now, onto the lighting situation. We were so tired of squinting in the dimly lit abyss that was our old bathroom. So, we decided to go all out with the fixtures. We're talking about installing overhead lights and vanity lights, and even considered some sleek wall sconces. Trust me when I say, it's like stepping into a whole new world when you flick those switches.
Moving on to the door and the window trims – oh man, what a project that turned out to be! We wanted to add a bit of charm to the space, so we opted for some classic white trims to frame the windows and installed a new door. Sounds simple enough, right? Wrong. Turns out, measuring and cutting those trims to fit perfectly was no easy feat. There were definitely a few moments of frustration, but hey, we powered through, and the end result was totally worth it.
And then there were the shower fixtures. We decided to treat ourselves to some fancy upgrades, including a brushed gold shower head and a matching lever. We can't get over how seamlessly this color and finish choice integrate with the rest of the elements in this space.The way they complement each other is spot on, crafting this tranquil, spa-like sanctuary within the bathroom.
You start to notice these little design touches more as you get older, don't you think? It's like you develop this newfound awareness of the little things that make a big difference. But hey, it might just be that my wife's got this incredible knack for spotting the tiniest details. Gotta hand it to her, she's got quite the eye!
Of course, no makeover would be complete without adding those personal touches to tie everything together. We spent hours scouring our favorite home decor stores for the perfect pieces to complement the new look. From the plush bath tray to the choice of indoor plants, every little detail was carefully chosen to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere.
