Well, we are back on the interiors bandwagon today and it’s all about the bathroom! After taking a tiny hiatus from decorating our space – it gets exhausting after a while I have decided to dive back in and hopefully make some improvements to our new space.
Our master bath currently has some gorgeous blue and white tile and some less than picturesque wooden molding and fixtures. I think some tiny updates can go a long way and am hoping to figure out the best way to update a rental. I would prefer to replace only things we could eventually take with us to a house and would love to hear any insight you guys might have who have done this before!
As far as future bathroom plans (hopefully a house is nearing once Trevor finishes and we figure out where we will be living) I am still torn on so many things. I pulled some prime examples of things I can get enough of but know I will need to narrow down that focus when it comes to a home.
1. Tile or No Tile? I know it is so in right now but I wonder if it will be forever. I think there was a time when I thought subway tile was horrid and now I can’t get enough of it. If you do go with tile I always struggle with a bold pattern or simple and plain? I’m hoping I can switch it up in different bathrooms.
2. Boho Vibes: I looove a good boho bathroom. Clean white lines and a pop of color from rugs is right up my alley. I’m thinking this is a great temporary addition to our current bathroom that I could then take with us.
3. Exposed Pipes: This may be one of my favorite bathrooms! Everything from the tile to light fixture and black and white simplicity have me swooning. The only question is how annoying will a sink with no drawers or cabinets be? I love the way it looks but am undecided on the practicality.
4. Built in Shelves: This herringbone tiles are insane and I love how the shelve has horizontal ones. The juxtaposition is so classy and that wooden bench in the shower is insane. I love the way these shelves look but again am unsure how practical that is. I guess it would keep me from collecting tons of crap in a bath that I never use like I do now…Listen, you never know when you might need that hair mask.
5. Marble Counter tops: The cleanliness of this bathroom is wonderful but I am now convinced I don’t love round mirrors over a wide rectangular sink. I think long rectangular mirrors look classic and timeless but I die for this Calacatta marble.
6. One Sink or Two? Our current spot only has one sink and it works out well but I think in a home I love the way the two sinks look. Everything is nice and symmetrical and you can keep your own goodies on your side.
7. Dark Colors? I love the way black and other dark shades look in some interiors but I am undecided in a bathroom. I don’t want the space to look smaller than it even is or seem dark so I’m torn on that. Anyone have a dark bathroom and love it?
8. Bathtub, practical or silly? I just recently browsed through Restoration Hardware with my mom this past weekend and couldn’t stop staring at the tub. My mom thinks the one in her house is a total waste and that it’s something that never gets used. I actually do enjoy baths but am not sure how often I would utilize it. Doesn’t this look so dreamy though?
I don’t know how people with houses every get any decisions made but hopefully by the time we are there I will have it down ha. Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday & make sure to follow along on all my house & interiors obsessions on Pinterest!
