I was about to give an Ikea chest of drawers a long overdue make-over when my stomach decided this wasn’t going to happen today. Being in an “I need to overturn my house mood” I decided it might be fun to create a mood board post for my planned bathroom overhaul.
We have a tiny bathroom (raw estimation: 2m by 3m) and our house has all these fun not-ninety degree angles. Ok, maybe these frustrate me a bit, but that’s also because the last owners decided to ignore most of these weird angles and put in large, clunky furniture (which I constantly bump into). We also have a tiny budget, so we’ll have to be very creative in finding new bathroom furniture because any “normal” options are out of the question.
So, when I bumped into Dietemiet’s post about the non-traditional kitchen of a friend of her’s (and her posts about her own non-traditional kitchen and bathroom), it made me think. If I take a look at my Pinterest “I wish my house looked like this” board there is very little minimalistic, traditional, clean and clutter free design to be found. I like plants and colour and clutter and houses that feel like they’re very much alive and vibrant, just like the people that live in it.
I’m not sure if we’re going to retile our bathroom, but I definitely like the subway tiles. Especially if they’re used on the lower part of the wall. Other returning elements: lots of white, wood, and some antique-looking fixtures, mirrors or hardware. And also plants of course! I can’t imagine having a room in the house without plants. And I have a couple of species that love living in a damp bathroom.
For the bathroom cabinet, I’m absolutely smitten with the first picture. I think it should be fun to find a dresser and completely doable to give it a make-over like this.
What does your dream bathroom look like? A bit like the pictures above? Or completely different?
