MrsBananas:  Good job! So much more clean lined and modern.

We recently reno’d our whole bathroom- a gut job- took out the small apartment sized tub and built a walk in shower. We have the same sink and a similar vanity, only in white. Ours has two large drawers, no cupboard.

If you could use more storage, I would put a medicine cabinet over the toilet. That would leave the space to the left of the sink for art. If you don’t add a medicine cabinet, then I would hang some art over the toilet, or else a magazine ladder. You could even hang a piece of art from the top rung of the ladder. It also makes a great place to hang guest towels.

Great job!! I’d reccomend some shelving but since you are working with a small space maybe glass shelves with silver brackets to match your vanity knobs, since they’re clear they may not seem to be taking up as much space. Then you can add a docorative vase with some pretty artificial flowers or anything really. You could even add some pretty rolled up towels.

Looks great! 

I agree with PP re glass shelving above the toilet. That would look really great and will give you some space for decoration, nicely rolled up towels, cute jars of cotton balls or whatver tickles your fancy. 

Tell me you caulked around the edges of the vanity? My friend forgot that and a year later a funky smell started coming from the bathroom…yup, an awful rotting mess behind the vanity 🙁

MrsBananas:  Re the caulking- you can stuff some foam strip down the crack, then caulk on top of that. Google it.

You really need to seal that gap if you are not going to put in a tile backsplash- actually even if you are.

Don’t fill up any shelves with bric a brac just for the sake of filling the shelves. It’s the clean tidy look that makes it look so nice. If you do decide to have shelves, get containers like boxes or canisters to contain things that are a visual mess.

Looks awesome!

Fold your towels pretty and put them on the shelves

MrsBananas:  You should be proud of your hard work! 🙂 I wish we could but we rent and can’t do big changes like that. But I may go to Ikea and buy some stuff to make it look nicer!

Really nice! I love the sink you chose, a very modern yet classic vibe

Great job! One of those hanging wall cabinet things would fill in wall space above the toilet
