Small Bathroom restoration

Project by Craftsman on the Lake posted 06-02-2015 03:00 AM 14860 views 1 time favorited 14 comments Add to Favorites Watch

We had an old, and small bathroom with no window as it’s located in the center of the house. It was last remodeled in the 70’s, had a blue tub with marbleized looking wallboard and a linoleum. I removed everything and tried to visually increase its size by making a floating counter, putting in a neo-angle shower with clear glass and finishing it all off in a light color with marble tile. And, in fact, it does look larger.

The counter is birdseye maple with a clear vessel sink. The sink has a mounting ring with 12 blue LED lights in it. Under the sink is a 12 volt sensor. It goes on when you enter and off 30 seconds after you leave. I wanted to make something curved that didn’t take up to much room and followed the curve of the sink bowl. I decided to use Birdseye maple in this style and it’s finished off with several coats of waterlox after being recommended by some people here. (Thanks.)
The cabinet has three doors. I’ve made raised panel doors before but wanted this to be a little more contemporary so I made them flat, with a curve on the top and rounded over edges. The center door is actually a drawer. It opens and is a medicine cabinet. I used heavy duty drawer gliders for this purpose and mounted them internally so they’d be enclosed by wood and wouldn’t show. With the exception of the ogee sink, all edges, doors, cabinet top and woodwork is made with some type of round over to all match.
The mirror is custom with side finials that are scrolled. I purchased some bathroom lights and cannibalized them for the porcelain sockets and glass tube shaped globes. The wires run through the scrollwork and behind the mirror to an electrical box.
The shower is Swanstone.

I have to say, I really love the sink lights. You mention there’s a 12V sensor under the sink for detection and I’m assuming LED powering as well – so the entire system is DC? (Or is there a transformer under there as well; I don’t see an outlet if there is.)

The whole bathroom is beautifully done – but I think I want to get some of those cool sensor-controlled LED lights! ;-)

Where did you get those if you don’t mind me asking? Did they come with the sink or did you custom-add?

Very, very nice job…

The transformer and sensor are under the sink. Everything is separate and doesn’t come with the sink.

Sensor link at amazon

Blue mounting ring

Search at amazon for 12volt led power supply. there are lots of models.

BTW… Don’t try to use a 120 volt sensor like from Home Depot to turn the 12 V supply on and off.. I tired. yes it’s less expensive but doesn’t work well at all.

Wow -

Thanks so much for the links; I will absolutely run this down!

I’m now working on a pretty major trim work effort for my dining room which will take me several weeks given the time that I have, but after that I have a bathroom renovation on-deck. There will surely be cool LEDs in there when I get it all together… :-)

I honestly haven’t seen this done before. I really, really like it.

Mark, you should do a search on amazon for LED lighting. They have ribbons of it that you can stick under window sills or under cabinets. They have remote controls that let you pick the color you want or rotate through colors and control the brightness. I’ll be renovating the rest of the house; livingroom/kitchen this spring. I plan on having some ambient lighting via this method throughout.
