As I begin my own kitchen remodel (the first in many, many years), I’ve been thinking quite a bit about kitchens. Selecting cabinets should come first, but I have chosen to focus on the thing I know best and use most: the kitchen sink.

Nothing about a kitchen renovation is exactly quick. Planning takes time. Selecting products thoughtfully takes time. Assembling and checking the order takes time, and is as essential as hiring the contractor. Interviews need to be scheduled, contracts reviewed and a project plan created.

This all white and very straightforward bath is simple and totally functional. The washstand with its marble top works well in the space, the sconce lights take away shadows, a magnifying mirror is always helpful, and a medicine cabinet corrals all of ones daily needs. The natural light is a benefit but the window is fitted with a simple roller shade. The bead board and French inspired fitting signify a traditional bath and the white paint makes the space nice but bland.

There is so much to like about this bath. The sink is installed on beautifully shaped metal legs with integral towel bars instead of the usual pedestal. This gives the ceramic basin a lightness that is proportionate for the narrow space. The mirrored back wall adds depth which appears to increase the size of the room. Natural light is a huge bonus and the tailored Roman shade is just the right treatment for the door; a linen fabric with a narrow stripe accentuates the verticality of the room. Brass shelves are an inspired touch, adding the idea of mixed finishes. They are practical as well, providing a place to display beautiful collections of objects and storage for elegant monogrammed towels.
