Powder Room Renovation – The Arched Manor

The vanity and mirror used in the powder room  of The Arched Manor

On our first visit to the house, the powder room was mostly empty – only a nasty, off-white toilet remained.  The vanity unit, mirror, and lights had been ripped out – the existence of the previous vanity was only visible by the outline of the old, pink paint.  During the 8 months of trying to acquire the house, the seller had taken the house off the market and painted the entire place. They also put in a builders-grade vanity and mirror to make the room functional. We were not thrilled, since it meant that the home became just a bit more attractive to other potential buyers, and we knew that it would be one more thing we would have to rip out if our offer was accepted. Spoiler alert – they eventually accepted one of our offers…and this cheap-o vanity was one of the first things to go, only to be replaced by a true beauty!

Other changes to the powder room include:

  • Ripping out the current tile and replacing it with matching red oak that occurs throughout the rest of the first floor.
  • Added the custom baseboards that are also throughout the rest of the first floor.
  • Painted all of the walls and trim white, and the door black. (You can find the paint colors we used here)
  • Installed cool black and brass sconces on the wall.
  • Added a new black towel rack and toilet paper holder.
  • Bought a new toilet! (goodbye old off-white can!)
  • Hung up some beautiful artwork.

While we plan on eventually adding trim or wallpaper down the road, we are very happy with the changes we have made so far!
