Bathroom Reno, Week 10

Last week I was predicting that the shower glass would be installed and that the bathroom remodel might actually be completed. Alas, it was not to be. The shower glass did get delivered but two of the three panels were not beveled at the correct angle, so back they went.

Thankfully, we don’t have a pressing deadline for completion of the bathroom. The contractors predicted an eight-week job, and here we are approaching Week 11, but I don’t really mind. I think the wait will be worth it. And I do have something new to show you: the vanity!

Week 11, vanity with countertop and sinks

As you can see, the countertop is on and the sinks have been installed. The countertop is Pental quartz; the color is “lattice,” a creamy white with very subtle beige-y grey markings. The knobs on the cupboards and drawers are clear glass. The drawers glide open and closed ever so smoothly. (I know this because I keep wandering into the bathroom to try them out.)

You  may be wondering why the vanity isn’t wall-to-wall. In the original plan, it was. But early in the project my contractors found a remnant of the quartz countertop I wanted which was a few inches shorter than the full space between the walls. One option they presented was making the vanity look like a piece of furniture (i.e. free-standing) in order to use the remnant. I am very pleased with the result.

Since I don’t have a lot to show you this week, I’ll end this post with a preview of a coming attraction:

Week 11, sconce

Isn’t that a lovely sconce? There are going to be three of these mounted on the wall above the vanity. But before that happens, Erik (the tile guy) is coming back to install the backsplash on the vanity. I hope you’ll come back for a look.

  1. When I’m ready to remodel my bathroom, I’m going to come back and look at what you did. You’ve made great choices, and the way you used the remnant – smart!! Kudos!

    It seems as if the countertop for the vanity was a happy accident. I like the look of furniture; seems more like it might have been that way in years long ago.

    Dawn, you have done a wonderful job of material selections for this remodel. It will be so calm and serene when it’s finished… It’s beautiful!

    Your bathroom is lovely! We are looking at re-doing our kitchen countertops in the Pental quartz Lattice. I have yet to find a slab so I can see it in person. Is it more cream than white? We are doing white cabinets and I want to make sure it’s not too creamy. Thank you!

      Hi Becki. It’s definitely more white than creamy. All of the woodwork in the bathroom is painted white, and the Pental Quartz goes very well with it. Good luck with your project! If we ever decide to do one more kitchen remodel, I will be very tempted indeed to use the same quartz that we have in the master bath.
