sheeats Posted August 14, 2008 Share Posted August 14, 2008 The hubby and I are about to remodel our master bath, which has barely been updated since the place was built in 1968. The "updates" included painting over the original tiles in the bath/shower area, spraying some weird texture over the existing paisley wallpaper and then painting that texture blue, and improperly installing a low-end toilet. It's all really special. Anyway, we've succeeded in peeling up the THREE layers of linoleum from the floor (another few "upgrades"?), chipping off all the tile from the bath/shower area and tearing out the rotted baseboard from around the main vanity. Here are my questions, since we've never done anything like this before and don't want future owners to angrily discuss our "upgrades" on some bulletin board: 1) We're thinking of this hex tile on the floor, with this beadboard on the walls to four feet, painted dove grey above it, and this subway tile in the shower/bath (but with black accent tiles, and not so crappily done). Is this too much white? Too period for our house? 2) The vanity is built in, quite solidly, and to replace it would be a huge chunk of change. Would it be awkward to keep it, reface the cultured marble top that is hidden underneath a layer of MORE TEXTURED PAINT and just put new hardware on it? FYI, that's not OUR vanity; but ours looks just like it, albeit in a much larger space. Thoughts? Ideas? Opinions? Feel free to trash my design ideas, because I am most definitely NOT a designer and I just want this thing to look fresh and clean and well-put together when done, no matter what that takes. Thanks!
