One thing you hear time and time again when it comes to bathrooms is you never want to see the toilet when first walking in. As you can see we ignored this advice, removing the knee wall and leaving the toilet where it was. One thing we didn't want to do was change the floor plan too drastically. The bathroom has a very narrow crawlspace under it and re-routing plumbing would have extended the timeline significantly. We figure you pick a pretty enough toilet and nobody will care.
Other finishing touches include textured wallpaper on the vanity wall (Hayley's favourite detail), reclaimed barn board turned floating shelves, a great antique medicine cabinet generously donated by our friends Mark & Karen (thank you!) which we left as-is, a stunning door sourced from Timeless Materials Company during their window & door sale, and the inspiration for the colour palate- the ruffled shower curtain from Urban Outfitters. The final piece to the puzzle is a Roman blind to cover the less-than-attractive window, which will be crafted this weekend by grandma & great grandma (thank goodness for them!).
