Just finished the remodel (thank you all for the help)

KevinMPApril 19, 2012

Two months ago, I began planning to remodel the only bathroom (110 square feet) in my house (c. 1826). There was a lot of fear and apprehension, and I often found myself looking for answers on this forum. You don't know how helpful you were, and to the extent I can be helpful to anyone, please let me know.

I'll try to post pictures, but I have no idea how to do it, so we'll see.

But here's what I ended up using:

Floor (9"x18" honed calacatta gold with dove gray TEC grout and Nuheat heated mat)

Vanity (it's made by Silkroad Exclusive and called Tenino on some websites; I got it on eb_ay for $900 delivered, removed the top and sinks, and hardware and replaced them with two Kohler Archer undermount sinks, 2 cm antique brown granite in a leathered finish, and cabinet hardware from Restoration Hardware)

Mirrors (they are from Lowes (I believe from the "Fanella" collection)

Lighting (five 40 W pot lights and 1 sconce (the Nolan single sconce with linen shade from Restoration Hardware)

Tub (Mirabelle Edenton 30"x60" acrylic thermal air bath (only sold at Ferguson, and has huge interior dimensions (bigger than most 34"x66" tubs I tried and cheaper (by half) and bigger inside than the 36"x60" Hydrosystems Lacey I was looking at)

Shower (same honed calacatta gold time and grout on the walls and niche, cheap (but well matching 2"x2" square mosaic tiles from Home Depot in Grecian White (I had to pick through many boxes to get ones that matched, but it saved me $250 off of the calacatta although), two Kohler body sprays (K-8002 (54 nozzles each), two Kohler volume controls (one for the shower head and one for the body sprays), the new Kohler Katalyst shower head, Oatey liner and drain)

Shower door and glass for knee wall (not in yet, but they will be Starphire glass)

Replaced the window with a 34"x53" 400 series casement window by Andersen with snap-in grille)

Jacuzzi Perfecta toilet

Fixtures (with matching Kohler valves) (all Kohler Pinstripe Pure (two faucets, tub spout and wall-mount valves, shower head, thermostatic valve trim, volume control trim, and shower door handles)

Paint (all Benjamin Moore Aura Bath and Spa Paint (Matte); walls Mount Saint Anne (1565) and trim and ceiling White Dove (OC-17))

I cannot figure out how to load before and after pictures. If someone wants to help me, please let me know, and I'll try. It's a dramatic difference.
