I’m going to warn you ahead of time… this is going to be a photo-heavy post!
I’m finally revealing the small bathroom makeover I completed (last summer..)
Note: There will be another post with a full budget breakdown and where all items and products were purchased which I will link here later.
The bathroom before wasn’t terrible, but it did need an update. This house as been steering away from older-country colours to a cleaner, cooler pallete. The bathroom also had an issue of organization and space. If you’d like to know how we utilized the space in here (and some other great space-saving tips, too) check out organizing a small bathroom!
As you can see in the above photo, items were just being chucked in baskets where there wasn’t enough room in the cabinet above.
Even baskets on top of the cabinet!
The light in this space was a particular eye-sore. Dreary colours, dated-county decor, and lack of space were the issues in this small bathroom.
Working with the original counter-top they had recently put in, I went with a colour palette that complemented the rest of the home.
Country wasn’t eliminated completely! An eclectic but updated balance was achieved. This beautiful older-style faucet is one of my favourite pieces of this bathroom.
Now that space was utilized, I was able to use the cabinet spaces to decorate a little (working on that still). The wall next to the toilet still looks a bit bare to me, so I’m trying to figure out what would work well on that wall. Suggestions? I’m thinking three smaller-sized photos.
For hardware, I went for schoolhouse inspired pulls, and a beautiful new light fixture to match!
The door also received a new coat of paint to match the space. Towels were replaced with all-white to create less visual clutter.
Design Tip: A pretty gold tray makes the perfect area for a pretty vignette that is function-friendly!
We selected a very simple but feminine shower curtain to create simplicity, but also creates interest and texture. A new curved shower curtain utilizes space inside of the shower.
Pretty hooks on top tie in the whole look. In a smaller space, the little details can really shine.
A basket in the corner for toilet paper added to the textures in the room while also freeing up space.
Just thought we should see the room in the candle light… (can never have to many photos?)
This extendable mirror is attached to the window in the bathroom. Why? There’s multiple women who use this bathroom at once, so the main mirror gets full fast! This mirror has seen a lot of appreciation and use since installed. Being near the window allows for ample lighting.
Also, on the windowsill: A cute little catch-all for earrings and little-things.
There’s that pretty faucet again…
I hope you enjoyed this photo-heavy tour! We are so happy with the results in this now beautiful and relaxing bathroom!
