Back in April Charlie removed the above-the-floor ductwork in the conservatory bathroom that would have been under the sink vanity.
I have decided to have a vanity that hangs on the wall and so this traditional toe-kick ductwork didn’t seem right.
Ever since he took it out I’ve been trying to figure out exactly how to finish it off when the floor tile is in place.
We could have installed an under-the-floor duct which ends in a rectangle but that seems beyond our skill especially since we would have had to remove some of the sub-floor.
I did a search for round vent grilles and some beautiful, expensive metal ones popped up in Google.
I even remember posting a vintage grille that we saw at a flea market but regrettably didn’t buy.
I found one item in my search for “round vent grille” at SupplyHouse.com which seemed like it would fit my situation even though we are not connecting it to an exhaust duct.
I ordered it on Monday and it was delivered to the house on Tuesday. I don’t think we’ll need the piece of metal tubing that came with it (left of photo above). The existing duct, once trimmed to floor level, should be sufficient to hold the small white plastic grille.
I’m hoping that once the all-white tile floor is in it will be barely noticeable.
Sneak peak at the exterior painting progress.
Do you take things apart before knowing how to make necessary corrections?
