soooooo, we have this bathroom, right? and it’s not great. the floors have these huge terracota type tiles. the walls are beige. the bathroom vanity isn’t even a vanity – it’s just a piece of formica (!!!) with a fake granite texture (!!!!) and a sink on top. the bath is TOO SMALL. when i was pregnant i could barely fit in it. it’s just… a mess. a total mess. i won’t show you a photo, cause you don’t need to see it. so our next big home project (after just having our this past winter) is to renovate the bathroom.
i have some ideas! of course. and this is not like picking out my next pair of sneakers. i really have to think about this one. i like so many bathrooms styles at the moment – i love marble tiles, but i also love black hexagon tiles. i like the idea of a wooden vanity, but would also love a slick white one. there are so many options! and because it’s such a lot of money to spend you can really only do it once. and what better way than to …
in my mind i have three options. something on the more masculine side, something on the more feminine side, and something in-between. what do you guys think?
this is probably the most popular bathroom style going at the moment. i worry that in a few years time it’s just going to be a bit “done”. but on the other hand it is very classic, drawing on vintage inspiration. and besides, subway tiles never go out of style, right?
i love love love marble in a bathroom. there’s something so relaxing and refreshing being surrounded by all that white, and it just feels so clean – something every bathroom should aspire to be. it’s beautiful, feminine and timeless.
this is kind of an out there option. the rest of our house has old wooden floors, so i quite like the idea of bringing wood into the bathroom too – but in the form of these new wood-style tiles. you can lay them in a herringbone pattern, which i think is super cool. and it brings warmth to a bathroom.
