Our personal style is decidedly metro and mid to high end. It will take us some time to achieve the renovations we want...one project at a time and we are still working on our en-suite bathroom and dressing room. But that doesn't stop me from thinking about smaller projects that I think I could tackle myself. ;)
I've been thinking about our powder room recently. It is yucky. You sit on the can and look at yourself in the mirror above the sink and when the door is left open the view is of the toilet. I. Hate. It. To make matters worse hunky hubby Steve is always opening doors to rooms. I can close the door to the powder room a dozen times a day...even though no one has used it. Totally sets me off. I can not stand to look at a toilet as I walk through the main floor of the house.
The only way to solve the 'toilet view' is to swap the toilet an sink so there will be a bit of work beyond my abilities in the basement with the waste stack but lets just ignore that for now.
I have been focusing on creating the sense of space in our tiny powder room. I 'd like the sink and counter-vanity to be almost transparent but I'm not sure how realistic this is. So thinking about the sink that will become the focal point got me to thinking about an inspiration board I was commissioned to do for clients a couple of years ago. I dug out the board to see what sink I'd sourced.
I love the Lucite legs! It's definitely an option.
The board has antiqued mirror which I'm already putting in our en-suite bath and possibly on the back-splash in our kitchen so I won't use it in our powder room but the mood of the board is a nice fit otherwise.
BTW, below is a photo of what the powder room looks like currently. It will be a total gut job, even the sub-floor needs to be replaced as it's chip board.
