We were making a ton of progress on the upstairs bathroom! With quartz countertops, the tub tile, floor tile and baskets for storage picked out, our next step was to pick out towel bars and faucets for the sinks and tub.

In our Cincinnati house, we had gone with bronze hardware and faucets in the kitchen and silver in the bathroom. I really debated whether to go with bronze or silver this time. I wanted the color scheme to be consistent throughout the house.
I spent a lot of time on Pinterest searching through pictures of white kitchens and bathrooms.
Bronze or silver… which do you prefer?
Ultimately, we went with silver. I love the look of the white countertops and vanities with the silver accents.
Even though we had decided to keep the pedestal sink in the powder room, we wanted to replace the old faucet.
I like faucets with separate cold and hot water handles. Personal preference! We went with an American Standard faucet in the upstairs bathroom …
… and a Glacier Bay faucet in the powder room.
We bought two hooks – one for the back of the door and one for the sliver of wall space between the tub and window – for when we have guests.
It’s always nice for guests to have a place to hang wet towels! (We didn’t have this in Cincinnati and didn’t want to run into this problem again.)
I prefer towel bars to hooks since I think they help towels to dry faster but sometimes you have to work within a small space.
We also needed a shower curtain. I was strolling the aisles of TJ Maxx one day (as I do many days!) and came upon this white, soft green, pale blue paisley patterned curtain and knew it would be perfect for our green and white bathroom.
We also bought a curved silver shower bar. We had a curved shower bar in our house in Cincinnati, and we loved it. It makes a normal-sized tub feel that much bigger.
The bathroom renovation was almost done!
