New Bathroom Details

The big bathroom in our house was the last room we finished. We did it while also planning a wedding and right before getting pregnant, so you could say that it was slightly rushed... ha. Despite how quickly we did it and how distracted we may have been, I'm very pleased with how it came out. There are definitely some things I'm going to do differently in the next house and I'll share that as well, but if anyone wants the details on specific products and finishes I'll share here.


The Mirrors and Lighting Fixtures are from Pottery Barn, and if you know me at all I'm sure you could have guessed that. The Mirrors are unfortunately no longer available for sale but the lighting fixtures are still listed on their site. We have the polished nickle which are pictured above. he


The sink spouts and handles are Kohler, and again we did them in polished nickle.


Our bathroom vanity is actually Kraftmaid, and we did the Jamestown Maple Square, in a Dove White w/ Cocoa Glaze finish.


And the small black thermostat is for our heated floors, which I HIGHLY recommend for anyone that lives in a cooler climate and has tile floors! We used Warmup and so far have loved them.


The tile we used for our floors and shower are from Cancos and did the Navajo in the Sepia color. 6x24 in the shower and 8x40 on the floor. Also we used the light pewter sand for the grout, and in my opinion it does make a difference what color grout you use.


Also side note, all our granite was from Marble.com, as they have a show room near us, but there's no way to link the exact one we picked. We did a mostly white granite with a minimal vein, which I still love the look of!

I really wanted to do a free standing tub in this house, but my husband had his heart set on a big corner tub with jets for so long that I didn't even try and fight him on it. However, when we use it we run out of hot water every time I try and fill it up more than 1/2 way and it is such a process. So although it's nice for the 1 - 2 times a year that my husband and I take a bath together, we will definitely be doing a smaller free standing tub in the next house. I will say though if you're going to do a Jacuzzi type tub, get one with the air-jets that prevent water from becoming stagnant and producing mildew or bacteria into your bath water.


We did this Kohler Corner Bath with Airjets. You won't find a better roomy corner tub if that's what you're looking for!


Finally I leave you with what I like to think of as the centerpiece to this bathroom:


When I walked into the showroom I spotted this bathtub spout and it was love at first sight. It is the first thing anyone notices when they walk in to our bathroom and it is oh so pretty! My husband will joke that we spent a small fortune on it but really it wasn't that much, and at the end of the day it's worth it for the amount of elegance it adds to our bathroom. I will fight with every bone in my body to get this same Newport Brass Roman Tub Faucet in the master bath at our new house. (Again we did all our finishes in polished Nickle).
