Thank you to Lamps Plus for sponsoring this post. I was provided product for review but as always all opinions are my own.
The bathroom is officially finished, which makes it the first room in the house I think! This weekend my husband and I added the finishing touch on all the changes we’ve made-we replaced the builder grade lighting with some sleek, modern fixtures from Lamps Plus.
When we were building the house last year we decided not to upgrade any of the light fixtures due to the cost difference…so they put in the standard builder-grade brushed nickel throughout the house. One of the first things we did was spray paint the downstairs fixtures with Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint to change their look, and we love them. We had not changed any light fixtures upstairs though. Here is what I started with in the master bath:
(This pic is after we painted the walls and framed out the mirror) You can see they were just basic lights with that marbled frosted glass that seems to be everywhere in my house and really annoys me! (It’s a pet peeve for me I guess, it doesn’t bother my husband but I hate it.)
Now we have these beauties though:
So. Much. Better.
Why I love them: they are sleek, modern, and not obtrusive. They provide great light over the vanity and blend seamlessly with the other chrome fixtures in the bathroom where the previous fixtures were brushed nickel in a bathroom full of chrome. (We actually put ours in upside down from the way they are shown online but it looks great either way!) They really are the icing on the cake of my little bathroom retreat!
What do you think? Do you hate the veiny frosted look as much as me or do they not bother you? Have you checked out Lamps Plus-the variety of lighting (and decor!) they have is staggering!
