Back in March I shared that we were getting new Formica® Laminate countertops in our master and guest bathrooms. Last week the countertops were installed, and then we spent the rest of the week installing the new sinks and faucets.
For reference, here’s what our master bathroom vanity looked like before.
We had pretty plain, laminate countertops and chrome faucets that came with the house when we bought it 6 years ago.
And here’s what the master bathroom vanity looks like now.
Much better, right?
Since the installers pulled out the entire countertop, we had to install new sinks and faucets. So we purchased some drop in sinks from Lowe’s. I won the faucets in a giveaway a couple years ago. They’ve been in our garage collecting dust because I wanted to wait until the countertops were updated to install the faucets.
The pattern I chose was Crème Lacquered Linen from the Formica® Laminate Jonathan Adler Collection. I like how it’s modern and simple but there’s texture for visual interest. Check out all the patterns Formica® Laminate has to offer and get a free sample here.
I think the Crème Lacquered Linen is perfect if you’re looking for something neutral that isn’t a stone pattern.
The faucets are by Moen– the Ashville collection in brushed nickel.
Then there was our guest bathroom. Same boring countertops as the master bathroom countertops. The seam on the side splash always bugged me. I hated the seam in general and how it was taller than the backsplash. It just looked like it was thrown together. And I wasn’t a big fan of the faucet either.
Now it looks so much better and like a custom job.
We chose for both countertops, an edge of the product that was post-formed for a clean, seamless look.
We installed the same drop in sinks that we used in the master bathroom and a new faucet. Although I didn’t win this one so I purchased it at Lowe’s. It’s by Delta– the Lorain collection in brushed nickel.
My next plan is to stain the vanities, well, at least the master bath vanity. The darker vanity will really make the new countertops pop with more contrast. And I need to update both vanities with hardware.
