We found a great, clean lined toilet for a reasonable price, and we are paying the cost to turn it to be able to install some wall storage:
If you can see from the first picture, there is a lot of wasted wall space in that corner because of the position of the toilet. Hopefully some Akrum kitchen cabinets wall mounted from IKEA will be the solution to our linen and bath product storage issues!
The vanity is where I had to make a serious compromise. Because of the fast timeline and budget, we were pressured to find something fast. I know I talked about creating my own vanity with a piece of furniture, but after a long talk with a guy from our local bath centre, I realized how impractical this would be with kids. He showed me the bathroom vanity in the showroom, which was a wood cabinet with a large sink mounted on top of it, stained and lacquered with industrial strength lacquer. After two years of light to normal use, water and soap created white chalky marks all over the cabinet top.
That was the deciding factor. I swallowed my pride and bought this vanity:
I hope that it works! I may paint it or switch up the hardware, but I think it will blend in with the "clean and bright" look I am going for.
So that is my update for today! Hope you guys had a great weekend and I apologize for talking your ear off!
