The first priority was the sink. The bathroom had one sink in a 6 foot by 8 foot long bathroom. We didn’t have room to knock out any walls but we did have some space between the toilet and existing 36 inch cabinet sink. After searching around for double sinks that were far too big, we found a 40-inch double sink by IKEA that had a cabinet with drawers. It would fit the space perfectly and usable storage for all three girls!
We knew we also wanted to change out the wall tile and floor tile for two reasons.
- The old grout on the floor was actually cracking and allowed the tile to become unglued. That was a safety factor because those little tiles were sharp!
- I wasn’t a fan of the small tile because it actually makes the room look smaller. Large tile makes the room look bigger so we picked a lighter color beige tile.
The floor tile was in a square tile but the wall tile was a rectangular shape to make the room look wider than it really is.
We replaced the ugly “Hollywood” light bar with an updated fixture, the mirror was also replaced along with the sink and shower faucets. Since the tub was old, we replaced the tub and installed a curved shower curtain rod to make it seem roomier in the shower. The new color scheme was cream and purple since this was a bathroom for all girls.
