bathroom cabinets

In taking the photos of the bathroom cabinets, I was reminded how small our bathroom is!  We'll have to make do here with shots of bits and pieces.

The cabinets are the same as the kitchen, with a fun upper cabinet between the sinks.  I love the little cubbies, and as this is our only bathroom it allows us to keep things close at hand while still looking tidy.

At the last minute we decided to add the plywood panels behind the mirrors.  The idea initially came about because one of the lights had to be moved slightly, and we were going to need to have the drywall patched.  I think this is a much more interesting solution, and I love how it ties the mirrors and lights into what looks like one big unit.

Although the bathroom is small, we have lots of storage thanks to the addition of a shelf and a pull-out drawer under each sink.  We had 4 drawers put down the center so we would have one each should the need arise.

The toe kick is recessed quite far back so that the cabinet appears to be floating.  It's always amazing to me how a little detail like that can make a small space feel larger.  

The counters and back splash are "Julia" soapstone through Canyon Soapstone.  This was a part slab left over from another installation.  We chose the toilet and two rectangular under mount sinks by TOTO, and the faucets are my Moen.  I spent a lot of time searching for plumbing fixtures made in North America, and didn't have any luck.  I decided on TOTO because as a company they have some good green initiatives, and their toilet quality is reputedly very high.  I chose the Moen taps for their water efficiency.
