So hey guys! I'm going to be remodeling my bathroom. It's the last part of my house that sucks!

Who wants to help me mull things over?


My bathroom is one of those tiny ones with a shower/bath combo stall against one wall, then a potty, sink, and the door. Itsy bitsy. Not quite this tiny, but... almost.

I'm thinking this black shower pan -- black fiberglass won't, hopefully, show my pink dye. And then solid surface mirrors as the tile/walls around it... I can't find many images of mirrored showers, but dang, why DON'T people use mirrors as tile more often? Not only would it resist staining (as ceramic tile does with hair dye, actually) but it would make my tiny space look bigger. And I'm always complaining I don't have a full-length mirror. And it's pretty inexpensive... yeah, I'm psyched.

For the floor, black hex tile. (Uh, more plain ceramic than those fancy ones, but that's the only reference I can find at the moment.) The black shower floor should visually flow into the regular floor...

White regular walls. (Tiling them would probably be more hassle than it's worth.) I was going to go with white toilet/sink, but now I'm not so sure... black pedestal and black toilet might be cute. I'd think it would resist staining, and, since it would blend into the floor visually, make the space look bigger.

Either way, I'm dead set on a motion sensor faucet. (Yaaay, no grimy handles! It's not a germ-phobia thing, I swear. It's a texture thing.)

I also want an LED showerhead. I WANT TO PRETEND I AM BATHING IN A SCIENCE FICTION SERIES, OKAY?


Not sure what to do about shelves -- probably something like these glass shelves. (One longer one with two shorter off-set ones for differing storage?)

I keep thinking I'm going for this sort of black-and-white retro mod look, but in reality, I tend to make uber-modern choices. (Happened in my kitchen, too; we went with a pine laminate wood instead of the kitschy black-and-white-checkerboard. I like both, but I definitely think less visual noise has been a good choice. Again, small space.) Sleeeeeeeek.


Oh my gosh, I will be so excited if I have a decent bathroom.

Ooh! All of that looks lovely...I can just imagine a nice sleek black bathroom. Then again I love the pedestal sinks (or those bowl sinks...but mainly pedestal).

Also, i love the idea of a mirrored shower...though would you be thinking of a full mirror or of mirrored tiles? I suppose only the big mirror would make it appear bigger...though the mirrored tiles would make it seem lighter.

The bowl sinks are pretty, but the idea of cleaning them absolutely terrifies me. (Imagine how easily clutter could get tossed around the bottom rim!)

I really like the sleek pedestal and the toilet without all the fiddly molding... wipe and go...

Which is why I'm definitely opting for a solid surface single piece of mirror. (Or, well, three big pieces.) Not only did I realize it will be insanely useful for checking out my outfits, but only a few grout lines to clean. I imagine I can spray it down and squeegee it!

(I sound really obsessed with cleaning, there. Mostly, you know, since I'm tired I decline to actually DO it, so I'm trying to figure out the most form-and-functional possible designs. Whee!)

While you're ordering it, you can get this unlicensed splendor (http://www.lightinthebox.com/Cartoon-Cell-Phone-Keychain_p86366.html)!

I want to bathe.. IN THE FUTURE.

OK, y'know, the end of the movie 2001? Barely? 's OK, I only barely know it, too. But! I realized, that's kinda how you want your house to look. (You at least wouldn't mind glowy floors.) I think now you've figured out how the bathroom in that setting should look.

Of course!

I... er... was kind of trying to wait until I posted something sane and normal, but I have realized I don't seem to make any posts like that. La la la! Hi!
