Micah and Dadtractor have been busy working on the master bathroom while I’ve been gone. Before I left, we decided to put in heated tile floors but there wasn’t enough time for me to look at tile. We also finished the cement counter and had it sitting in the garage curing. Over the last week, the floors have been complete and just yesterday (or maybe the day before), the counter was installed. Here’s our progress to date.
Before I left, I told Micah that I thought we should go with something simple, off-white and inexpensive. Micah sent me pictures of the tiles he was considering but the I couldn’t really make a good decision based on the pictures. Micah was left to make the decision, and he went with this which cost us $1.67 a tile (or a sq ft). Not too bad.
I have to admit, when I first saw this picture, I wasn’t excited about it. I didn’t like how the tile looked against the tub. I think it’s the lighting and the angle. I have to say, it’s growing on me. I’m not head over heels in love with it but I definitely like it.
This is the toilet area last week before the sink was reinstalled.
And this week after the installation. It’s amazing what a sink and a little better lighting will do for a space. You can also see the new shelves and paint in the corner. I think we did that around Thanksgiving.
I like the way this turned out. Micah said it’s a little greener in tint but that he talked to a cement expert and was told that over time it will look more grey and less green.
We are definitely not done with the master bathroom. We reinstall the molding, paint the walls, touch up the caulking and clean the sink and other fixtures. I also am trying to decide whether to update the mirror and of course, we’ll need to decorate.
I’m really happy with the progress we’ve made. I think the only thing that I might change about the cement counter is that I might have made it smaller in length and width but thicker. I think it looks good as it is though.
I think Micah and I were both nervous about him making the floor decision solo but I think it worked out fine in the end. I can’t wait to get home and finish up this project!
