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 leaky roof entirely redone 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 moodboard the crap out of it…
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?to content↑
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. plus 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.
