13 May Bed and Bath Renovation: Floor to Ceiling
And the renovation continues! There are floor to ceiling updates this week… literally! The ceiling in the bathroom, bedroom and closet have been coated and slightly textured (an “eighty-twenty” coverage in drywall terms, which means 80% is smooth and 20% is textured). The bedroom ceiling has come a long way in this photo – weeks ago this ceiling was a “popcorn” or acoustic-textured ceiling with an ancient ceiling fan. The removal of the popcorn texture was fairly easy but extremely messy. It’s amazing what a different the smoothed ceiling and recessed lighting make in modernizing this room.
Now to the floor! After the bathroom tile was finished, our expert tile installer moved to the bedroom floor and here’s the result:
That’s right – this is tile, not wood! The tile is an Italian plank tile called Misingi (color: Suber). The product is described by Arizona Tile as “a rectified color body porcelain that is produced to emulate natural wood. Because this material is a porcelain product, minimal maintenance is required, while sharing similar, beautiful visual characteristics of a natural wood. Misingi is available in two, plank-style sizes. It is available in five natural hues, each of which provides significant tonal contrasts between pieces, imitating the exceptional qualities of wood.”
Next will be the final wall paint in the bathroom, bedroom and closet, and after that, the millwork (doors, door & window casings, base & crown moulding, and wainscot). There’s still plenty to do, but the rooms are really starting to shape up. What do you think?
