Area - The sink bottom actually IS painted. We painted it Ben Moore color White Rain, 708 in a semi gloss. The shower curtain, which is not pictured had a lovely soft green tone in it that we picked up in the underside of the sink to bring all the colors together!

Is the wall tile grout white or light grey, please? It looks grey, but difficult to tell for sure from the pic.

How high is the bathroom sink - Is there a standard height to hang that wall-mounted bathroom sink? I have a similar one and was wondering what a comfortable height might be. Thank you

Typically bathroom counters are 35" - 36" now (they used to be very low!) This Kohler sink has a specification that states to mount it lower and on all occasions I have felt it was too low, and I am rather short. So I'd say somewhere between 34" - 35" would be comfortable. But just hold up a tape measure and mock it up in your home!

the tile is a 4x12, ceramic tile. The clients purchased the tile directly, so I don't have the spec, sorry!

Finishing for the subway tile? - Kristina, thanks for answering so many questions so far. I love the bathroom. I was wondering how the top of the subway tile is finished. I can't tell from the photo but is there a bullnose tile on top or does it just end with some grout/caulking on top? Can you also share the grout color?

The top of the top tile is a bullnose, so a bullnose on the long edge. Keeping it simple rather than a decorative chair rail!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Houzz Tour: A Made-to-Order Modern Farmhouse in Massachusetts
The hall bath is shared by their daughter and houseguests. (There is also a guest suite over the garage that is not photographed here.) Not wanting to go too babyish yet still make it a child’s bath, Crestin chose a striking color for the walls. “Because there was so much white in the room, I knew it could take this color,” she says. The artwork is composed of three $7 downloads from Etsy, and she framed them in inexpensive frames purchased at Target. Now that the TV show is over, the family is all settled in. The historic look of their home’s exterior is a good fit for the area, first settled by Europeans in the 1600s. Inside, they have the modern farmhouse style they both love.Paint: Newburg Green (walls), White Dove (trim and ceiling), Black PM-9 (window sashes) and White Rain (underside of sink), Benjamin Moore; stool: Serena & LilyBuilder: Kaminski Construction ManagementBrowse more homes by style: Apartments | Barn Homes | Colorful Homes | Contemporary Homes | Eclectic Homes | Farmhouses | Floating Homes | Guesthouses | Homes Around the World | Lofts | Midcentury Homes | Modern Homes | Ranch Homes | Small Homes | Townhouses | Traditional Homes | Transitional Homes | Vacation Homes

Give the bathroom a makeover. As one of the smaller rooms in the house, the bathroom will benefit in a big way from any upgrades you make. Try a bolder new paint color on the walls, hang up new artwork, or bring in new accessories like fluffy towels and a woven basket.6 Elements of a Perfect Bathroom Paint Job

3. Oversize sink. If you’re not a fan of water splashing from the sink onto the countertop or floor, you may want to consider a larger basin. In this stylish Boston bathroom, designer Kristina Crestin selected a 48-inch-wide Brockway sink from Kohler.
