Could use some advice on a small powder room re-do
We're currently redoing our very small downstairs powder room. It's 3 ft. wide x 5 ft. long, and when you walk into it, the toilet is on the left, and the sink and vanity are to the right. We weren't planning on doing this now but necessary repairs have forced our hand, so we're doing this on the cheap-as-possible.
We're trying to figure out what to use for the vanity top and the flooring. We're keeping our existing builder-grade vanity cabinet, which is one of those deals that is pre-built into the bathroom and snugs in on 3 sides. My husband is just building new shaker style cabinet doors. We'll paint the cabinet white or antique white.
We're looking at quartz vanity tops, specifically either a mid tone grey that looks like concrete, or a warm white with a little sparkle to it. The vanity top will be 35" wide x 22" deep, and while the rest of the house is more of a cottage style, we do like a clean, somewhat modern look.
What we can't figure out is what to use for flooring. If we choose the grey concrete look for the top, with the white cabinet, would we want white flooring? Or a travertine look? Or if we choose the warm white with a little sparkle, would white be too blah? And what's better for resale?
The rest of the flooring in the house is medium toned cherry hardwood and we have no intention on redoing the flooring any time soon.
Thank you for suggestions!
