If you’re planning on updating or renovating an existing bathroom, what would you like to see improved?Do you want to update the look of the bathroom by changing details like lighting and mirrors, or are you interested in a major overhaul?But before I start smashing, let me take you on a little tour of the space and how I envision it will be transformed.You know your bathroom is ugly when you build a barn door just to hide it from view!It’s always bothered me that we have this huge bathtub we almost never use.By giving the space a spa-like feel, I hope it will become the most relaxing spot in the house!Just imagine soaking in the tub surrounded by calming, neutral colors, a good book and a glass of wine!The shiny silver towel bar will be replaced with something inspired by this list of DIY towel rack ideas. The vanity was custom built for the space, which has an awkward angled wall on one side. I’ll be replacing them with the same doors as the pantry cabinet I just built for our kitchen, stained a dark chocolate brown to match the barn door.
Getting it out of there would be a nightmare, so I might as well work with it instead!
Obviously, my bathroom isn’t quite as grandiose as the one above, but you can see how the almond bathtub doesn’t look dated when surrounded by colors of the same palette.
This spa-like feel is what I hope to achieve in my own bathroom remodel.
I hope to create a relaxing, spa-like retreat that will turn our basement bathroom into a highlight of the house!
