Bathroom Remodel Pt. 2

Bathroom Remodel and choosing accessories by seelindsay.com

I swear I don’t know how many parts this thing will have, maybe 20, ha! No, I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve to make this room complete but I want to show you a must have for a bathroom. Bathroom Accessories. When it comes to choosing them, there are so many options and it’s a rough choice. You want quality but you also want good style along with a good price. A few years ago I worked at a high-end company that sold some serious stunners of bath/hardware accessories. I would see everything and I learned a lot. You’ve got to look for something that is sturdy, not just a little dingy, flimsy piece of metal that is holding on to some hollow pole. You want to make sure the company has a good reputation and has a good standing with the company you’re buying from. Check out Moen’s guarantee here.

A lot of times the big box stores will have those styles in stock, if not, a showroom is the safest route to go. If you’re doing a flip, it can really show in the finishes you choose how you did in the underlying work. I am a firm believer in do it right the first time.

When I was at SNAP I had the opportunity to meet up with the Moen, Inc. group. They were some of the sweetest people ever. Before our bathroom had some Pottery Barn accessories. We paid a high price for those accessories, I am not going to lie, they were crap. Even with the help of anchors and screwed into studs, they fell out, the poles would not stay attached, they were constantly needing to be readjusted. It was a headache. When I was contacted by Moen they asked if I would like to try some bath accessories and I instantly took the chance. You see, when I worked at the high-end place, Moen was one of the top sellers and they were always a name to be trusted and they were the ones who were the lowest priced.

I chose to go with the Rothbury accessories and they are gorgeous! I chose the chrome finish cause it’s a classic and the light bouncing off of it just makes the room brighter. We also decided to go with a Double Curved Shower Rod for a couple of reasons. My kids have never liked showering in there because they feel it’s too small so this adds the perfect amount of space. Also, I plan on adding an additional drapery so this is perfect for that. You can choose to have your liner and curtain this far apart though. If you don’t want them that far apart, they’ve made these Double Shower Hooks. My husband said it was a little rough to install but I think it was just an obstacle to hang anything long but yourself or with an 8-year-old.

I can honestly say that I’ve been very happy with these. I would most definitely recommend you to buy them and give them a try. They are worth every penny and I would say to give the showroom buying an experience. You get your own salesman and you may not have instant gratification but you get more choices and more availability. I hope you’ll see me through part 20, lol.

XOXO, Lindsay

**Moen did supply me with 100% of the product and I happily accepted. However, all opinions are mine and I would never recommend something that I personally wouldn’t buy.

Bathroom Remodel Pt. 1

My kids’ bathroom has been needing an update since we’ve moved in here almost 8 years ago. The walls have always been white, the hardware has been missing for about 5 years now and I just can’t find a shower curtain that I love to go with these white walls.

It’s one of those rooms you just can’t figure out. I entered a giveaway on Home by Heidi a while ago as she was wallpapering her closet. I was so excited when I won because there is some chic wallpaper these days. I was given $150 to choose from whatever Wallpaper Warehouse carried. Unfortunately on their site I couldn’t find what I wanted but I knew a trick. I knew I could go to the manufacturer’s website and find what they had and WW could order it in for me. Perfection! I found a lot of great choices and if you follow me on Instagram, you would’ve seen that I narrowed it down to a few choices.

I really loved all of these. I knew for choice 2 it really would have brought the room dark and I could bring that in with the linens. With choice 3, I knew I could do that with some vinyl. To me, it was really down to 1&4. I love them both but I couldn’t get over that I think that 4 kind of looks like Subway sandwich shops. I do think it’s much more chic, I just couldn’t do it. I think when we move though, I’ll take the leap.

I went with choice 1, the Euro scene. It has tiny pops of color that I just really love. It’s got a bit of red, beige and fuchsia. It’s not a true white, it’s more ivory. I do like a little color in my home but not too much. I’m learning to bring it back a notch. When I was 14 my mom let me remodel my room in the bottom corner of the house, I chose 4 colors for the walls – pink, yellow, green and purple. It’s embarrassing and I don’t want to talk about it. I did end up toning it down with over 800 N’SYNC pictures. Ahhhh, TMI!

Back to the bathroom, I’ve bought a few towels in grey, pink and mustard. The shower curtain is black and white stripe and I’m going to add some more detail in on the curtain. It’s definitely not a finished product and so I hope that you’ll join me on this fun little adventure of my bathroom beautification! Stay tune for my next post where I’ll show off these awesome, high quality accessories by Moen. I can’t recommend them enough!

XOXO, Lindsay
