My guest bathroom - before and after

When we moved into our house the bathrooms (and kitchen) needed to be updated. These renovations have been occurring over time, and I am thrilled to share with you our renovated guest bathroom, before and after.

Some before (we moved in) pictures, yes, that is a green, puffy toilet seat and the shower floor is just scary - yikes!



Progress pictures, everything out!


Completed!


Because this is the guest bathroom, I thought it would be fun to do things a bit dramatic. The color scheme is charcoal gray, navy blue and citrine, with the main bathroom components crisp white. I like the contrast of the dark colors with the white elements, and I like a little splash of color to liven things up! I selected a pedestal sink and a low toilet, because they make the small bathroom look and feel more spacious. Also, I chose a large, mirrored medicine cabinet so that our guests would have a concealed place to put their toiletries. 

If you are interested, I am happy to provide the sources.

xoxo,
Leah

  1. This looks amazing. Ordinarily I'd be scared about a dark color in a small room - but this works! I also like how your soap matches the shower curtain.

  2. Hey Leah - So glad Tess forwarded your blog to me! I remember the squishy toilet seats from back in the day. I always wanted one...now the thought completely grosses me out! Your bathroom turned out great. The artwork over the toilet looks reminiscent of something from Norma's house!? Can't wait to see what else you have up your sleeve!

  3. Hi Amy, thank you! Those squishy toilet seats in theory seem like a comfy idea, but in reality, not so great... The picture is a watercolor painting of a Cockatiel from the Etsy shop,DIMDI, http://www.etsy.com/shop/dimdi?ref=shop_sugg.
