Bathroom Reno Update: Day 13

Thirteen is a lucky number, I guess. Today the crew installed the vanity and toilet, and the water is running. The baseboards and trim, the door, and the towel rails and shower curtain rail aren’t in yet, those are to come in the next day or two.

We had hoped that today would be the final day, but there will be a few more days to go.

Yesterday the linoleum was cut and put in, and it gave us a bit of a scare. When we unrolled it, it was all yellow on the inside! It didn’t look good. But a quick search on the internet for “yellow linoleum” and I found out that linoleum will turn yellow if it isn’t exposed to light, because the linseed oil will oxidize. It’s called “blooming“, and it will go away with exposure to light. So we put it out in the sun for a while, and in half an hour it had cleared right up. Remarkable.
