One area in our home that we’re planning to focus on this year is a master suite, which includes the bedroom, bathroom, and walk-in closet. We haven’t done much to this area of the house besides installing a new toilet and painting the bathroom.
There’s a list of things we’d like to accomplish in the master bathroom– stain or paint the vanity, new countertops, sinks, faucets, spruce up the mirror, update the electrical outlets, and maybe get a new lighting fixture. We also need to install a new shower stall but that’s a whole different beast.
I’ve said a million times before–we live in a builder grade house, so the materials in our house are also builder grade. Since this isn’t our forever home, we don’t want to sink a ton of money into the bathrooms by buying new vanities. Which is why I’d like to stain or paint our current vanities and add hardware to give them updated looks.
When it comes to the countertops in general, you know my love of Formica® Laminate from our recent kitchen update. So I was elated when Formica Corporation® asked if I wanted to check out The Formica® Laminate Jonathan Adler Collection, which features three different patterns in various colors– Greek Key, Malachite, and Lacquered Linen. If bold is your thing, definitely check out the Greek Key and Malachite. The collection is available at Lowe’s home centers and select kitchen and bath distributors nationwide.
As you can see, our current master bath countertop is pretty simple.
As is the countertop in our guest bathroom.
I’d also like to eventually update the guest bathroom vanity, mirror, and possibly the lighting fixture. We also need to swap out those outdated almond electrical outlets with white ones.
I decided to go with the Crème Lacquered Linen for both the master and guest bathroom countertops. I like how it’s modern and simple but there’s texture for visual interest. I think this design will look good with vanities stained or painted.
I can’t wait to get these bathroom updates underway!
