Bathroom Inspiration

I’ve been brainstorming ideas for my bathroom and wanted to share them with you guys.

As you know, I live in a small one bedroom apartment with one bathroom. You have to actually go into my bedroom to get to my bathroom. I hate the idea of people having to travel through your bedroom to get to the bathroom, but it is what it is. I can’t do anything about that. I can, however, make my bathroom pretty, so the “travel” can be worth it. Here’s what my bathroom looks like now:

I know, it’s pretty bland. I knew I wanted to have a cool color on the walls and cute decorative accessories. So far, I’ve painted the bathroom this cute turqouise color and refreshed the cabinet and trims in fresh white paint. I’ve also changed the knobs on the cabinet to these glass ones that I LOVE! I purchased them from Home Depot.

I also installed a concrete shelf (that you’ll get to see later) over my toilet to add plants and toiletries on top.

So, what’s left to do:

  • remove medicine cabinet and get another mirror that’s larger and prettier
  • DIY a shower curtain
  • get some new towels and bath rug
  • buy cute accessories for the sink

I won’t give out much more info now, since it’s such a small space and I want to save details for the reveal.

Below are some bathrooms that inspired me.

That’s all for now folks! I’ll be sharing a couple of DIYs next week and then the reveal will be up by the end of the month! You’ll see how I am inspired by the rooms above, too!

What do you think of the rooms that are inspiring my bathroom decor? Do you like the blue color I chose for the walls? Leave a comment and let me know!

    Can’t wait to see your bathroom reveal. I love the faceted nobs you chose and the cement shelf sounds like you’re taking the modern route for your bathroom.

    I do like the blue and I’m looking forward to seeing the big reveal. Hopefully, I’ll get some great ideas. I’m redoing my master bathroom soon.

    A concrete shelf?
    I can’t wait!!! I also have a small bathroom with no storage except for medicine cabinet but we’re not allowed to make any permanent modifications so I’m saving my money and searching for “Renters Solutions” on improving my space…

      Thanks for dropping in, Evie!!

      I replaced my medicine cabinet with a regular mirror. It took away a bit of storage, but I found a way around it. Removing the medicine cabinet doesn’t have to be permanent, just hide it away until you get ready to move. Then, you can install a another mirror of your choice.

      I share a lot of solutions for renters, as I am a renter to. Have a look around!
