The bathroom is almost done… we’re still waiting on a few things. Like a second sconce, and towel bars… in the meantime, here are some details we’re using that I’m excited about…
- The cove molding at the base of the subway tile.
Today, subway tile is usually installed directly meeting the floor tile. But if you look at vintage baths, you’ll notice that the original base tile would have been a different design than the rest of the wall—either cove molding, or a different size or shape.
- A pedestal sink.
Technically, we’re using a console sink. This will give us more counter space, but leave the underside exposed. We debated using a base cabinet, (the storage factor can’t be beat). But ultimately I loved the vintage look of a plain porcelain sink, with exposed water shut offs.
