AJ and I have toyed with the idea of renting out our house for a few weeks every summer but it was never in a place where we felt comfortable with people staying here that we didn’t know; the house was just too unfinished. As I was driving the other day I started brainstorming about what we should do before we’d rent out the house. I came up with four big things:
1. New drywall in the living room and Drew’s room
2. Install hardwood in Drew’s bedroom
3. Finish the stairway going upstairs.
3. A new bathroom.
Of course, the biggest one, with the biggest ticket, is a new bathroom. We know the house would rent much quicker, and for a higher price, if we have a second full bath.
I’ve always been drawn to gray marble and lots of white (shocker, right?). Our space is small, it’s only 5ft x 7ft. Because we already have a tub in the main bathroom AJ and I have wanted to go a little more “grown-up” and do a fantastic tiled shower. The benefit of a shower is that it takes up less space which will hopefully allow us to have a double sink or at least a sink with more surface area than our pedestal has in our main bathroom.
As I was thinking about what kind of modern bathroom vanities and cabinets interested me, and thinking back to images I’ve ripped out of magazine or repinned, they all seem to have a very traditional feel to them. There are no sleek lines. I love Shaker style doors. And white. I love white.
These three vanities from DecorPlanet all have similarities to the ones I’ve torn out of magazines. This first one has open storage underneath and it certainly gives more countertop space than our pedestal sink.
This next one is 48 inches long which would give us a foot to play with on each end. I love how much space there would be on the counter for spreading out hair tools and make-up.
Here’s the same design but with a double sink. So less counter space but more room for two people to get ready at the same time. We rarely get ready at the same time in the morning ever since I stopped working so maybe this wouldn’t be as practical for us, but it may help with resale value.
I want to know what you think. What style do YOU think would make the most sense? Have you had any of these styles and have felt like you couldn’t live without it? Or, did you buy a vanity (like the top one) and thought your space would be better used with a drawer? Give us some things to think about.
