Bathroom Inspiration

May 29, 2009

Now that we’ve completely torn apart the bathroom, it’s time to think about rebuilding. I’m loving bright, airy, open spaces, especially since our bathroom seemed so tiny with the old shower doors, the too-big-for-the-space vanity, and the cupboard over the toilet. Now that we’ve removed everything, the space feels much bigger, so our challenge is to keep it feeling big as we add new tile, vanity, shower curtain, and other bathroom goodies.

Here’s a few images of things I love:

Our bathroom will likely end up being a combination of the above, and I can’t wait to see how it all turns out!

Now, I turn to you for advice: What are your sources for cheap, but awesome bathroom tile, sink, toilet, other goodies? Does anyone know anything about re-glazing tubs or using an acrylic liner? I met with a carpenter today that is willing to help us with the labor, but will allow us to purchase our own supplies, and to do some of the steps that we’re comfortable doing on our own. He measured the tub, and it looks like our old 1960s tub is 3″ shorter than modern tubs, so getting in a new modern tub may be expensive, and we’re looking for alternatives. Any suggestions/advice is appreciated!
