Why Our Grasp Rest room Progress Has Stalled

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve shared progress on our grasp rest room, and there’s an excellent cause for that. There was no progress. 😀 And the explanation for that? Worry and indecision.

There are three objects which can be holding me again from a “full steam forward” angle with the lavatory — the lavatory and bathroom space trim, the “dresser” and vainness design, and the bathroom space cupboard design.

I’ve normal concepts about two of these issues, however relating to the effective particulars, I’m misplaced. And relating to the bathe and bathroom space trim, I’m at a whole loss. So let’s begin with that one.

Bathe and bathroom space trim:

I had provide you with a plan for these areas, and began engaged on it a few weeks in the past. However I shortly realized that my concept wasn’t going to work as a result of it will put the crown molding means too near the highest of the door trim.

I received’t rehash all of this. You’ll be able to examine it right here and right here.

So now that I do know my concept received’t work, all of these boards that I put up have to return down (sure, they’re nonetheless up there), and I’ve to provide you with a brand new plan. And that’s the place I’m caught.

This space across the prime of the bathe must be completed.

I had deliberate on that being completed with crown molding. However there are all types of particulars that might must be addressed for that to occur now. Crucial subject is how that crown molding would tie in to the remainder of the crown molding within the room contemplating that it has to work round that one 1″ x 4″ vertical board on the left wall on the entrance to the bathe.

A part of me needs to only quit on the concept of crown molding in each space, and simply tile all the way in which as much as the ceiling within the bathe and name it good. However then I’m proper again to the issue of finish the crown molding in the primary a part of the lavatory proper on the entrance to the bathe since I completely do NOT wish to do what’s referred to as a hanging return.

However once more, I’ve already gone over these particulars in different posts. My level is that I nonetheless haven’t decided, and till I do, I can’t transfer ahead. I’m simply paralyzed with indecision proper now. And whereas it’s extremely irritating at occasions, I additionally know {that a} answer will current itself finally. They all the time do, however typically it takes longer than I had anticipated.

The bathroom space storage cupboard

For those who observe me on Instagram, you might have seen my IG tales a couple of week in the past once I shared my concept of utilizing the French doorways that I took off of the pantry as cupboard doorways on the cupboard that I plan to construct for the bathroom space of the lavatory.

They’d must be minimize right down to take away the surplus from the highest and backside rails (the horizontal items of wooden on the prime and backside) of every door. Inside doorways have wider horizontal rails and narrower vertical stiles. However cupboard doorways often have rails and stiles which can be equal widths. So proper now, it’s apparent that these are inside doorways. But when I minimize the surplus off of the highest and backside, they’ll look extra like cupboard doorways.

As soon as that’s finished, I may make one thing like this, though mine wouldn’t be stained wooden…

However when discussing this risk with my mother, she liked this design and the concept, however she additionally mentioned that she needs she had a spot in her rest room to retailer taller objects, like a brush or different objects like that. I agree that that might be helpful, and I wouldn’t need issues like that saved behind glass doorways. I may nonetheless do a built-in, deplete the complete width of that wall, use the French doorways for the center part, and have two skinnier sections on every outer part to retailer tall objects if I wish to.

So I haven’t determined what I would like — a freestanding separate piece of furnishings, or a built-in that makes use of the complete width of that wall. And actually, I can’t even make that call till I determine on the trim for the bathe and the bathroom space. All of it ties collectively, and one factor depends upon one other.

And eventually…

The “dresser” design particulars…

Since I’m constructing table-style vanities that can have little to no storage in them, I’m additionally going to construct a center storage piece below the window that appears basically like a dresser.

And whereas I do know the final type I would like, I simply can’t appear to nail down the particulars. I’ve so many dressers saved on Instagram and Houzz, which is likely to be a part of the issue. I’ve too many choices.

However listed here are a few my favorites…

I really like the element on this one from Kara Nicole Clark on Instagram

However then there’s this one from Jenkins Interiors with the gold element outlining the complete drawer part. It’s so fairly!

After which I maintain coming again to this one from Jaclyn York, Whereas I’d not do uncovered hinges, I do love that gold element on every particular person drawer.

It jogs my memory an entire lot of my inexperienced kitchen…

And whereas I opted for a teal kitchen over inexperienced ultimately, I did love that gold element on these doorways. And this might be my probability to include that much-loved element on a smaller scale.

All of that to say that I’m nonetheless understanding the small print. I’m even uncertain about some vainness particulars. Since we’ll have this massive “dresser” storage within the center, do the vanities even want storage in any respect? I had deliberate on doing two small drawers on both aspect of the sink on every vainness, however is that even wanted? Ought to they simply appear like precise tables with no drawers in any respect?

These are all the questions I’m nonetheless wrestling with, and till I can provide you with some solutions, I’ll be caught on this “stalled” mode. On one hand, I don’t wish to strain myself into making selections, as a result of pressured selections generally tend to not prove so nice. However I additionally know I must put some concerted effort into making these selections quickly, as a result of clearly simply passively ready round for the solutions to pop into my head isn’t understanding for me. Hopefully by the top of this subsequent weekend, I can have some concepts nailed down, and have a really clear course for these initiatives. I’m anxious to get that room finished, and I do know y’all are anxious to see a completed rest room!
