Mirrors, lights, and counter tops for bathrooms

 With the cabinets in place, the counter top people came out and measured where the counter tops will go.  Then they went off to work on the counter tops.  We expect them back in a couple of weeks.

In the mean time, the people can install the lights.  We choose lights from Lamps Plus, Possini Euro Exeter 36" Wide Nickel LED Modern Bathroom Light.  We need four of them -- one over each sink, plus one for the side of the center bathroom which will have just a cabinet, no sink.  These are $299.99 each, plus sales tax.


We also ordered 3 mirrors -- one for each sink.  For the master bathroom, we picked two Kohler 20" x 30" Single Door Reversible Hinge Frameless Mirrored Medicine Cabinet from the Verdera Collection, Model:K-99002-NA, for $296.13. 


For the central bathroom, Kohler 35" x 26" Double Door Reversible Hinge Frameless Mirrored Medicine Cabinet  Model:K-CB-CLC3526FS, just the one for $359.10.

(That is the shower curtain being reflected in the mirror.)

The doors and drawers arrived, and were put on the counters.  And the crew put down a 1x6 oak baseboard, stained to match the cabinets in both bathrooms, as needed.

Plus the shower glass was installed in the main bathroom.  The shower glass is one piece of 3/8 inch clear tempered Glass, 54 inches wide by 79.25 high.  I also got the "ShowerGuard" option.  Showerguard is supposed to make it need less cleaning, and what cleaning is needed is easier.

The glass (plus installation) was $1304.35.

And then we needed new toilets.  I have been happy with the ones we had, so we just got two new versions of the same thing, American Standard Champion Two-Piece 1.28 GPF Single Flush Elongated Chair Height Toilet with Slow-Close Seat in White.  I just drove over and got two from Home Depot, $454.60 for the both.

Then on Friday, the counter people showed up with the counters, and installed them.  That includes attaching the sinks to the counters and drilling the holes for the hot/cold water faucets (but not attaching anything to the plumbing).

The sinks are Kohler Ladena 23-1/4" Undercounter Lavatory sinks (in white) Model K-2215-0. $232.50 each, for 3 sinks ($697.50). The faucets will be Kohler, Devonshire Widespread Bathroom Faucet with Ultraglide Valve and Quick Mount Technology -- Model K- 394-4-BN.  $408.53 each, for 3 sets ($1225.59)

The simplest counter has no sinks.

But across the room, the counter has one sink.

And in the other, Master, bathroom, we have two sinks.
