Throughout this whole basement remodel project, I'm learning that my decorating taste has become more electic. I think I know what I want but it somehow evolves into something completely different than what my taste is known for. And that is traditional. I'm a traditional gal. Love neoclassicism and reflecting anything in a traditional sense in our home.
So what do you call this?
I call it our zen bathroom. I saw an opportunity to think outside my comfort zone. Adding a little of the unexpected, sort of a modern twist. It was a risk and I'm glad I took it. The path has been a little bumpy, but we are well are on our way to finding zen in the bathroom. Our goal was to achieve style but in a practical way. Practical in the sense that our bathroom and pretty much the entire basement is ADA-compliant. We hope that our parents remain healthy but in the event they become not-so-healthy, we'll be prepared to help.
It's sort of like taking an umbrella with you in case it rains. Usually if I have my umbrella with me, it doesn't rain. And in the case of our bathroom, I hope we do not need an umbrella, but if it rains, we'll be prepared. Or as prepared as we can possibly be.
So we are hoping for sunny days and healthy parents!
p.s. - when I said the path to a zen bathroom has been bumpy, I wasn't kidding. We currently have a situation with the location of bath tissue holder. One butt cheek lands on the toilet and the other lands on the tissue holder. No zen has been achieved yet.
