The bath has been gutted; new tub installed; plumbing, electrical and tile are all completed (all by me... with some help on the demo). The last remaining element is the new window which will come in another week. In the mean-time, here are a few iPhone photos (I'll bring out the big camera after it's completed).
There was a lot of behind the walls work that isn't showing in the pictures, but suffice it to say, it as a very solid install (even nicer than our own bath) that is sensitive to the original design of the house... and sensitive to budget.
All in all, the process went quite well.
- We installed a new Toto Ultimate HET toilet that works well. Very well for a 1.3gal toilet.
- The tub is a simple enameled, stocked model from Home Depot. A very high-quality and cost-effective replacement. New drains and plumbing are behind it all.
- The flooring is Armstrong's Excelon VCT which compliments what's already in the house.
- The cabinet is from Ikea's Godmorgon line (the drawers still need to be modified and fitted).
- The sink is Ikea's Vitviken sink. One thing to note: Ikea's drain plumbing is not "real" plumbing... it's very lightweight and not confidence instilling. I replumbed the "proper" way which means I'll need to modify the drawers a bit. In the end, modifying the drawers will make for a better install than fitting the Ikea plumbing, methinks.
- The fixtures are from American Standard's Serin line.
- The tiles are matte gray (Light Smoke) from American Olean with gray-white grout (Custom's "Snow White")
- The medicine cabinet is from Nutone's Metro series... a very cost-effective and very nice choice. It also comes with a non-beveled mirror option.
- The light is a double sconce from LampsPlus (but is not on their website). Wired from the GFCI outlet, it's much safer than the original.
- The window will eventually be Milgard's 1100-series with "standard obscure" glass.
