Ventilation blocks

Not sure if you remember, but we relocated our powder room entrance.  The entrance use to be at the end of the kitchen.  Not too keen on guests walking through the kitchen just to use the bathroom.  Just didn’t make sense.  So we changed the entrance.  It is now by the side of the living.  It has worked out well here.  Happy with that decision.

Another issue we had…the powder room has no windows!  Our IDers came up with the brilliant idea of using ventilation blocks…love it!  Goes with the theme, and we thought that it was very unique.

I wanted SOME cement screeding and we decided to go with that for the powder room walls…so that the black and white mosaic tiles will still remain the main feature.

Found this lovely mirror at Tan Boon Liat Building and it was on my to buy list for quite a while.  Thankfully there was a sale in july (Great Singapore Sale) and we grabbed it.  It isn’t meant to be for bathrooms because the wood is not treated.  But I don’t think that will be a problem because no one is gonna be showering in this toilet.  It is a powder room after all.  Should be safe.

Powder Room Towel Ring

All our bathrooms have a Mr Mouse.  The powder room has two!  Custom made this towel ring for the powder room, to keep with the theme.  Well…I think the tagline needs no explanation.  Heh!

The toilet roll holder cracks me up.  And I think it will be a nice little surprise for any guests using the toilet.

tap in powder Room

Because of the size of the powder room (really tiny), we could only fit in a tiny sink.  Man was it difficult sourcing for a small wall mounted sink.  Took ages before we found one that we are satisfied with.  This we found from Sim Siang Choon.  It was really crazy cheap…think it was about $80.

We glammed it up with a beautiful italian designed and made tap.  The tap really lifts the look of this area.  So satisfied with it.  Glad I went with this.  It cost about the same as a basic Grohe model…but I like this one a lot more..love the curves on it.  🙂

Tin Tintin tin in toilet

Added a pop of colour to the powder room, to break up the black, whites and greys with some tin tin covers i got from Taobao.  Strange place to put them…but hey…people read in the toilet right?  And maybe some people read tin tin in the toilet.  😛

Last but not least…the light from taobao.  Our IDers used this in their 3D renderings and to their surprise…i went and got the exact same light.  LOL
