bathroom design
April 18, 2014 in Design Dilemma
I am trying to create a traditional yet functional bathroom for my son . I am using a dark blue gray tile(mimics the look of wood) on the floor and a beveled, white subway tile on the walls, white hexagon tile in the shower. I am torn between using a pedestal (memoirs from Kohler) which I think would compliment the dark floors, or a vanity (24" espresso color) which I am afraid would be too dark with the floor but would like the storage. I am also using antiqued brass hardware and medicine cabinet from restoration hardware. Any ideas which would be better? Is a medicine cabinet enough storage for a growing boy to use? Also, a suggestion for paint color on the walls would be great. He loves cobalt blue but again I am afraid with the dark floors if it would be too much. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I love the idea of a pedestal but the loss of storage would be too great.

The cobalt blue could look stunning on some parts of the wall. I often do part tile and part paint on walls and with the white that you have on the walls and in the shower, it could look stunning. You could always add a few white framed pictures on the walls.

would a white vanity look better than a brown? I'm trying to make it more masculine.

You could still have an espresso vanity, just have a floating one (or like this one below), and against a white wall. The upper half can be in blue. (along these lines)
