Bathroom Remodel Pictures - Trim Advice


We did a major overhaul on our bathroom and working on some finishing touches. We are trying to decide if we should put crown up or not. The attached master bedroom does have crown installed. On a side note, the stained glass windows in the picture are being changed...just hasn't happened yet.

If we did install crown in the bathroom, I would only put it on the drywall walls...not over the stone walls or over the tiled soffit.

Any votes?

very nice job.. the overhead shower, how do you like it ? I'm starting a bathroom remodel and thinking of adding that type of head along with body sprays. Any tips ?

Thanks, I haven't used the shower yet to comment on the body sprays but the rain shower heads are great. They do consume a lot of water though so make sure your hot water heater can keep up.

Nice renovation. IMO crown is a must; your bathroom is finished to a quality that crown will compliment nicely.

As to the shower head........
Having stayed in many motel rooms and being rather vertically challenged I can tell you that the overhead shower heads royally p***** me off
Not being able to adjust the height is sooooo annoying.
I don't want to wash my hair every time I have a shower.
And I don't need to get water in my eyes while having a shower either.
Give me a wall mounted adjustable height shower any day

Bathroom Remodel Pictures - Trim Advice


I am in the very near future planning a bath remodel and am considering which shower fixtures also. I tried the showers with the hand held, body spray and large over head shower, I like the hand held and large over head shower but not the body sprays. They just don't put out enough water to warrant to extra expense and if the volume is turned up high it feels like needles, so I will leave the body sprays off. I do like having control of which sprayer to use though, I use the handheld the most.

I just went back and reread the thread, I apologize for the hi jack. I do agree that your bath will look complete with ceiling mold, but not such a large mold that it takes away from the beauty of all your hard work, you don't want the ceiling mold the focal point.

I'd say either way would work. The style is contemporary (modern, but not too modern, and not traditional). The only concern with doing crown might be that it would take away from all the beautiful finishings. I'd say take a trip over to the houzz website and see which look you'd prefer. That's usually my goto place for design decisions, as it helps seeing similar examples.

My 2 cents:

- Crown molding on the drywall area walls (that is stained the same color as the vanity), would look good. As stated, do not install on stone wall areas.
- Baseboad that matches the profile and color of the vanity would also look good (We just did this on a master bathroom project and it came out fantastic).

Bathroom looks GREAT! Very nice job. I would vote for crown molding painted to match your door and trim, not stained dark to match your vanities. I would put it over the drywall, maybe over the wall stone, but definitely not over the tile border above your shower door.
Where did you get your wallstone and vanities?

I'm surprised that your vanities do not seem to have a recessed base for toe-room -- I'm predicting a few stubbed toes.

They have toe kicks, it is just hard to see, I thought the same thing.

The vanities were made by Cardell in Texas. Very nice quality. The ledge stone is made by Anatolia.

It's hard to see in the pics...but they do have a recessed base.

I've never used the body sprays before so can't really comment on how well they will work. These are full rain with a nebulizing mist spray so they should be a fairly soft spray and they are connected to a volume control so you can really adjust the pressure well.
