Time for a Bath

Aug 6, 2010 +

We've been debating whether we include the basement bathroom in the basement renovation. Its well laid out, has a functional shower and really we could get by with just changing out the pedestal sink for more storage and painting over the floor to ceiling Van Gogh sunflowers mural (yes, we had more than one masterpiece in our bathrooms!)

But with just those cosmetic changes, I think we would never really be happy with the space... the cold textured tiles, the ones that catch all the dirt, would bug me; and HandyMan would still fret that bugs were getting in through the uninsulated walls or unseen cracks. We've had blog friends with the exact same house layout who found ants in those walls so we've always thought the bathroom may be the source for the occasional critter we've seen.

If we redo the bathroom, we could keep it similar in style with the planned laundry room. I'm thinking something a little bit country, a little bit coastal, fresh, and light... tongue and groove, white shaker cabinetry, classic subway tiles, glass and mirror. Mmmm, now that's a bathroom!

    We have the exact same taste in bathrooms. Clean, white, classic.

  4. I love that image from decorpad. Even though bathrooms are small spaces, you can really do a lot to them to make them "yours".

  5. Love all of these ideas! Great inspiration! I know we'll eventually have to do our guest bath upstairs - mostly because it's the only untouched room in the house! The wallpaper that we put up 8 years ago is falling off the walls and the black and white tile is chipped - but I love it! And we're broke so it will have to wait!

  6. Great bathrooms. I love the light colours, they give the space a clean and crisp look. It looks like there is lots of natural light which always helps as well.

  7. I love the second one ... the light, the beadboard, the more modern sconces ... yum.

  9. I am so jealous that you are doing your bathrooms. Mine could potentially win an ugliest bathroom contest. I LOVED your 1st BR reno and I'll love this one too I'm sure! All the photos are very inspiring.
