Bathroom Lighting & Storage



We are down to the wire! Literally.

It is time for me to firm up lighting specs and measure where the recesses for the medicine cabinet, tall side cabinet, and shower alcove will go.

It's always jarring in that stage of a renovation when you move from dream phase to purchase phase. It means the dreaming (and paging through Houzz and Pinterest) that I have been doing since I made the offer on this apartment in July is about to come to an end. But also that the end product is near.

So, these are my choices.



Ceiling Lighting: Deco Schoolhouse Flushmount Fixture
  • Max Wattage: 150
  • UL Listed: Yes
  • Fixture Dims: L 5" x W 5.5"
  • Canopy Width: 5.5"
  • Shade Dimensions: w 11", h 8"
  • Total: L 13" x W 11"



Recessed Medicine Cabinet Over the Sink
  • Overall: 21¼"W x 4"D x 34"H
  • Recessed Box: 19"W x 3¾"D x 31¾"H

Sconces to either side: 5"W x 4½"D x 15"H:Console sink: 30" w x 22 deep


And to the left of the sink, recessed in the wall a tall medicine cabinet:
  • Overall: 21¼"W x 4¼"D x 72½"H; 50 lbs.
  • Recessed Box: 19¼"W x 4"D x 70¼"H


Floor tile: Half Hex, Heath Ceramics Dwell Collection.

Those are my choices, and I'm sticking to them!
