Although our focus at home has been on our new couch. We’ve shuffled the furniture around and foud a nice fit that we’ll share soon. You can see a sneak peak at our new rug in these videos. Today I’m switching gears back to planning our bathroom renovation. If you need a reminder, this is what I’m working with…
As much as we love the painted tiles and mish-mosh of fixtures (BLECK!), we’re going with a complete renovation overhaul! We won’t be doing this until this coming winter or spring – which leaves me lots of time to design it!
Since my last banter, I’ve made some headway on the direction
we’d I’d like to go with the bathroom. (This is all my doing, but I did run it by hubby – he seems skeptical but I’ll win him over eventually. I think he’s a little cautious about my design choices after I tried to paint our hallway purple…hehe) I was having trouble thinking of how to relay these zillions of ideas I have. Solution? Pinterest! Here’s a glimpse into the remodel plans…
Neutral with a pop of color. I’m thinking a smoky grey on the walls above white beadboard wainscoting with a pop of mustard yellow in the decor. This way, it’s a neutral palette and we have the option to change it up in the future just by switching out the decor, which is much less expensive than repainting, or putting in new fixtures & tiles.
Here are a few ‘color pinspirations‘…
White fixtures: New tub with tiled walls & new vanity. We currently have a 3-piece tub insert, which I think looks cheap. Tiling the walls will be much more work, BUT look much better. The vanity I’m not sure about. I could refinish the cabinet (something dark dark grey) and get a new sink top that has more counter space. Or we could get a new one all together….maybe with open storage? Here are a few tubs and vanities I’m digging…
Open shelving to appear spacious, but provide the storage we need since this is our ONLY bathroom. I’d love a decorative mirror, but for functional purposes we will need a medicine cabinet. Oh and did I mention that I have to get on my tipy toes to see myself in the current mirror? It’s way too high so I’d love to add a tall mirror that extends the room vertically while serving the purpose of being able to see myself!
DECOR & DETAILS
I want to add decor with pops of color on towels, toothbrush holder, rug, waste basket, etc…
White at two levels with a lip to rest decor on.
Anything would be an upgrade from the hideous laminate tiles we have now…and since the space is small we could splurge on a marble or stone.. not sure which ones I like more yet…and to go dark or light…?
More bathroom renovation ideas to come… What did you think of these?
