Bathroom redo advice/help
We're gutting our bathroom and redoing the whole thing. I want a beach cottage kind of feel. It's a small, full bathroom in a ranch house. So far the only thing I have picked for sure is the floor tile, which is a grey/whitewash weathered wood-look style (pic below). I also want to do 4' high beadboard wainscoting on the walls, and I'm torn between painting that white or a really pale gray. It's a really small bathroom - my contractor told me we need 60 sq ft of floor tile, and that's taking into account the (current) closet space and accounting for breakage and cutting during installation.
What should I look at for shower tiles? I was thinking white subway tile because its kind of timeless, but would that fit?
I need a lower profile vanity, but I tend to like the ones that look like re-purposed dressers. I don't even know what color finish I should be looking for, though.
Vessel sink or standard? I guess this depends on the vanity cabinet, right?
This is the floor:
I'll take any other advice anyone has for me, too. Thanks!
