Shore Files: Mod Beach Bathroom Cheat Sheet

Ok, so a tiny bit delayed but as complete as I can make it, below a source list for the shore bathroom. If you are just joining, read part 1 and 2 of the bathroom remodel. I did my best to look up prices and links but in some cases I just estimated.


  • Wall Tile: 9x12 Bonda Glossy White Ceramic purchased from Classic Tile at $3.50/sq ft
  • Floor Tile: 12x24 EdiMax Space Spaz Porcelain Tile from Classic Tile at $5.75/sq ft
  • Accent Tile: Jeffrey Court Silver Tradition Mini Brick (a mix of clear glass, frosted glass, gray glass, white marble and dark blue stone). Home Depot carries this and it ended up costing $4/linear foot for the 4 rows we used.
  • Trim Tile: Carrera Marble "Pencil" from Classic Tile. Don't remember the exact price but its about $10/linear foot. (I later saw these at Home Depot as well.)
  • Wall Color: Zinc by Martha Stewart from Home Depot
  • Ceiling Light: 10 arm Sputnik purchased on ebay from a seller named lamparts for $135
  • Vanity: Hutton Powder Room Washstand from Restoration Hardware
  • Medicine Cabinet: Framed Wall Mount from Restoration Hardware. They also sell it for full price online but we snagged at their Virginia outlet store for half price.
  • Faucets: Tub and Sink both from Kohler's Bancroft line purchased online with coupon code but I don't remember the site.
  • Fixtures: Towel Bar, Shelf and TP holder all from Restoration Hardware Outlet. Don't remember the specific prices or style names but they were discounted 50% at the outlet.
  • Art: Reproduction I ordered online from Ocean's Bridge for $285.
  • Bottles: Blue, green and white bottles sitting on top of the medicine cabinet are from Ikea for $8.


As I mentioned in the first post, we did not do the work ourselves. We found a contractor who was able to do it in his spare time. Since we don't live here it was pretty easy to have the bathroom out of commission for a few months in the winter while he got around to finishing it up. It took longer this way but we were okay with that.

Hope that answers all of the questions you had in this space. Maybe in a year or two, I'll be just as excited to share a redone shore kitchen but I wouldn't hold my breath for that one!
