In Renovations

Sneak peek at some bathroom updates


Aubrey has grouted the floor, and we’ve purchased the toilet for the basement bathroom! We ended up picking the Kohler Memoirs style of toilet from Lowes. Love it! We’re hoping to install that later on today, which will make a lovely change for me, so I don’t have to walk up all the stairs whenever I have to use the washroom. This baby is pushing on the bladder more, and more, and to have that bathroom functioning will be in one word – awesome.

    Lindsay- I love the memoirs line. We have both the toilet & sink in our main bathroom. I also love your marble hexagon shower tiles- that's going to be one chic basement bathroom!

    There has never been a better-looking fixture line than Memoirs from Kohler, I have the toilet and pedestal in my downstairs bath and they were worth every penny. Although, I did find the pedestal in terrific used condition on Craigslist for $50! Score!

    What you've done so far is amazing.

    I love the entire Memoirs suite! I used the same toilet in my bathroom reno (along with carrara basketweave and subway tile). Your pictures make me remember how giddy I was as my bathroom took shape a year ago. 🙂

    We just installed the Memoirs toilet and love it. It's truly timeless.

    We just completed our basement bathroom (I just posted the after photos on my blog) and I know the excitement you must be feeling as your project takes shape. I love your hex tiles and since our next project is our upstairs bathroom I wonder if you would mind sharing where you bought them?

    Oh my heavens. That tile is just killing me with how beautiful it is. I would seriously turn into a prune if that floor were in my shower, because I would never want to get out. What a stunning choice!

    Oh, and yes, the toilet is lovely too, but I guess I'd probably just spend the "normal" amount of time on it.

    Fantastic tiles. May I just provide my two cents on the Memoirs toilet? We have it upstairs and I adore its aesthetic. Even up to this week, I was planning on using it in my basement bathroom as well. BUT, it's low flow, which in all honesty, can lead to clogging issues. It's terrible. Even more terrible is that I was told that these clogging issues could become even worse in a basement. I say this not to be a pain (as I, again, LOVE the toilet), but we are now looking at Toto's for our basement bathroom, which supposedly are more 'effective' flushers.

    What an embarrassing comment to write. 🙂
