When Remodeling a Bathroom, Remember the Details

BlogHer Original Post


If the star of the bathroom was going to be the tile, the featured supporting actress was going to be the vanity. I must have looked at every vanity on the Internet and in every showroom within a 25-mile radius of my house. Finally, I ordered a vanity online that I’d seen in a showroom. It looked great with the tile, and it had the right measurements—or so I thought. Measurements are one thing, volume is another.

When the vanity arrived, the first problem was getting it to fit over the pipes that came out of my bathroom floor. It hadn’t occurred to me that the pipes didn’t come through the wall like in my upstairs bathroom. It also hadn’t occurred to me not to pick a vanity with a drawer on the bottom because of those pipes. But trust Fernando to find a way. A buzz cut here and a buzz cut there, and the vanity fit over the pipes. Hooray!
