So for the rest of the bathroom, yes, we will be removing the pink toilet and ugly vanity that I showed you before.
For the toilet we're going low-flow; it's good for the environment and for the wallet. We managed to snag this beauty (can a toilet be beautiful?) for 30% off from Home Depot and we get a rebate from the city for installing a low-flow model. In case you're really curious this toilet it a 4.8 L or 1.28 Gallon flush. We thought about going dual flush, but decided against it since I think its weird to flush a toilet by pressing a button.

Moving along... the vanity that I wanted was this one (but in dark brown), but even on sale it was over $700 and that was not in the budget.

I love the shallow porcelain sink, which I think is perfect for a powder room. Nice and wide so lots of kids (in the future) can wash their hands and since you almost never plug the powder room sink to say, wash your face it seemed perfect and very pretty.
After more searching I found this much more affordable option from Ikea for around $200. It has doors below the sink for hidden storage, which I actually prefer, AND it was on sale! At Ikea! They almost never have sales. 15% off. Booyah!

So there's the plan for the new and improved powder room. Let me know what you think!
We're hoping to go low-flow with most of our plumbing to save money and water for the environment. Are you going low-flow at home? Faucets, toilets, shower heads? How do you like/hate it?
