So I’ve showed you our “so so” bathroom. We are going to let the bathroom be, since we hope to not be in this house much longer. I can’t keep myself from daydreaming about what I would do if we were to renovate it, though. Yeah, It does make letting it be a little harder, but I can’t help myself. “What ifs” are just too much fun for me!
So, here’s the low down. Our bathtub is relatively new so we’d leave that alone, but we’d rip down the plastic shower surround and tile the shower walls with the same beveled edge subway tile we used in the kitchen. We’d rip out the current sinks and replace them with two of the sink bases from IKEA I have pictured below. I would definitely go white with the bases, because I love crisp, clean, white in a bathroom, and I love the drawers in the sink bases. It would certainly help with our much needed bathroom storage. I would absolutely die to put in gold faucets and accents. The slate tile floor would stay there because there’s really nothing wrong with it. It’s a really pretty floor. Above each sink I would want a circular mirror with a wooden frame to bring in a wood accent. We would replace the trim around our current bead board walls with a wider more substantial trim and paint all the walls a soft, light, muddy, sea foam green color. Lastly, I’d add fluffy white towels with a minimal strip accent.
Are you catching the vision? Here’s what the bathroom currently looks like. In case you forget.
I desperately wish I could put this plan into action, but we know it’s just not worth the money we would spend, and we’d get no time to really enjoy the renovation. Oh well…. a girl can dream. Here are some beautiful bathrooms to help you dream!
