Our house was built in the 1950’s and our bathroom definitely looks like it. With it being our ONLY bathroom for our family of 5, we have been looking to remodel it and make it more functional for all of us in addition to adding a new bathroom in our basement!
I’m a huge fan of those shows on HGTV – who isn’t?! – and I think I’ve gotten my husband hooked on them too. I totally feel like I can do something like this by myself (maybe? possibly? I do have a handyman on speed dial.) and I’ve been searching online for ideas and to make sure that I get the best deals.
So what am I thinking for this remodeled bathroom? One of my favorite looks are the rooms from Fixer Upper – that farmhouse style is such a favorite of mine! I know that I would want to have Marble Tiles in my new bathroom – they are so classic and it brings your bathroom from looking ordinary to extraordinary!
Because we have such a small bathroom, I’m all about saving space. I’ve been trying to figure out some unique storage solutions to hold everything a family of 5 needs and how I can stop from having the sink be too cluttered. That’s why I love the idea of wall mounted bath faucets which would literally give us more space on the sink.
I even like the idea of a pull down faucet in the bathroom – something you normally see in kitchen sinks but that I think could work in the bathroom. With little kids, I feel like I’m constantly having to wash them off and having the ability to pull the faucet out would be a huge plus – as long as they wouldn’t make too much of a mess if they were by themselves washing up!
As for colors, I think I’m all about light and bright. We’ve had a dark bathroom before and I’m definitely over it. For our small bathroom, I think lighter colors (think white and maybe a coastal light blue) will make it seem like it’s a bit bigger. Plus, I’m a sucker for anything that reminds me that I’m at the beach.
I’m so eager to get started on a bathroom renovation – have you done one before? Do you have any tips to share?
