Basement bath, soon to begin!

Last night we went to Home Depot to price out the things we'll need for both bathroom projects.There are still many things we'll need to get that are less fun then the sink and faucet, like drywall and trim and that sort of thing. But, we'll be making a few more HD pit stops before these projects are started anyway.

One thing is for sure, it is not an easy task picking out faucets, let me tell you. I think I stood there looking at them for at least one full hour. They seem to be either WAY modern, or super traditional...and I like a bit of both. Here's what we walked away with (note, the sink isn't this exact one...but it's pretty close).

We're keeping this 2nd bathroom pretty simple. Apart from this, all we want in there is a place for a towel, a nice mirror, and a pretty light fixture.

Our main focus, once this is done, is going to be the upstairs bath. THAT will be a project...yikes!

In looking at through the bathroom section of HD last night...I feel again torn by the modern vs. classic furnishings they have. It applies to vanities, faucets, everything. I don't want it to be TOO modern, because I think that look can be a bit cheesy...but how can I mix the two and make it look intentional?

For example...I really like the storage capacity (and size, as it relates to our particular size of bathroom) here:

But...if I go this route, I'm limited to super modern furnishings. Or am I?

At least I know if would go with the faucet we got for this room, cute huh?

I can't wait to see how this all turned out...and I CAN'T wait to have a 2nd bathroom!!!
