Hey peeps! I know, it’s been forever since we’ve talked about the flip!
I’m here to remedy that with a little sneak peek at what we have in store for the flip’s two bathrooms. Neither one is particularly large so we can afford to get a little spendy with the finishes – carrera marble for everyone!
We’re keeping the existing layouts for both bathrooms, with two exceptions – we’re expanding the shower in the master bathroom and lengthening the vanity in the guest bathroom. Check this out for a little refresher as to what the bathrooms looked like when we bought the place.
The vibe we’re trying to achieve with the whole house is something I’ve dubbed “Modern Classic.” I want clean lines, light and bright, and nothing too fussy – but I definitely don’t want to veer into cold or futuristic modern. With all of that in mind, here is how the master bathroom is shaking out:
All of the hardware and fixtures are chrome, with a little detail that isn’t too ornate. The flooring throughout the entire bathroom will be that gorgeous carrera marble in a herringbone pattern – a tiny little mosaic that makes my heart go pitterpat. The vanity will have the cabinet profile shown above, with the lighter stain color – my hope is that having a stained vanity will warm up the space since all of the gray and white that we have going on in there could read a little cold. The rest of the space will be white white white – white walls, white subway tile with gray grout, and of course a white toilet and squared undermount sink. Looking good so far?
Now for the guest bath – even though it’s a secondary bath, it needs to be pretty since it serves 2 bedrooms and will also be seen by any guest that comes to the house. It has many elements in common with the master bathroom, but with a few tweaks:
The cabinetry in the guest bath is light gray, so we’ve chosen a pinwheel carrera marble floor tile that has black accents to break up some of the gray and white. Since the floor tile is a little more on the traditional side we’ve decided to go with hardware and a faucet that is very streamlined to balance things out. The bathtub/shower will have subway tile laid in a brick pattern with gray grout – do you love that look as much as I do?
So there you have it – two modern, classic bathrooms for the ol’ flip. What do you think?
