Sometimes the smallest of things make a difference in a renovation, both for good and for, um, less than great. The Bobcat Lair project is no exception.
While our next post will feature exciting things like doorknobs, handles on cabinets, and genuine light fixtures, I wanted to focus on how little touches have been affecting me on the project.
The first little touch that made me happy is that the bench in the master shower got switched out from matching the wall tile to matching the vanity granite. The granite has high contrast between the light and dark parts. Until I saw the bathroom all together, I didn’t realize how perfectly the dark accents matched the dark pebbles in the shower floor and cubbyhole. It looks like I had a plan. Maybe I did? I mentioned earlier that some of the decisions on these rooms were made a long time ago, while others were recent. It’s always a relief to see the design coming together in a good way.
Another small thing in the grand scheme, but one that makes a big difference, is the light fixture in the laundry room. Rather than putting in a standard contractor-grade closet light, Ruben found a much larger LED fixture that both fits the room better and gives nice, bright light.
When we saw it, we pretended to do laundry, and marveled at how well we could see stains. That’s our idea of renovation fun, I guess.
