The bathroom is an easy place to overlook and a great place to decorate. It’s easy because you can decorate it by simply hanging a picture or you can go all out and gut the space to install your dream bathroom. The sky is the limit! Well, actually, the space is the limit. You are very limited in what you can practically do in a bathroom, but that’s a plus!
The small space instantly changes the rules of the game. Because most bathrooms are small (we say most because not all bathrooms are created equal), it means creativity and clever design are key. You need to determine function over fashion, meaning do you want it to look good or do you want it to be a useful bathroom?
Most people want a functional bathroom for obviously reasons, but a guest bathroom gives you more options to play with. The guest bathroom gives you and your guests a place to take care of business and get out. We aren’t lounging in the tub or enjoying the walk in shower with a rain drop shower head – we’re in and we’re out. That means you can install a floating, reclaimed wood sink that has the minimal necessities to wash up and move on.
A large, spacious master bathroom gives you all the options you can ever think of and all the options your contractor can charge you for as well. We’ll let your imaginations take this one, it shouldn’t be that hard. In case you are lacking inspiration, we have a couple images of bathrooms we’re enjoying. We have picked out bathrooms that range from simple to dream bathroom to help you realize you’re missing out on a great design opportunity if you’re not decorating your bathroom.
Bring style and rustic charm into your bathroom by repurposing furniture! Retrofit an old side console or dresser and reuse it in the bathroom! Keep the old table top or upgrade it with a new, bathroom friendly top while still keeping the aged patina of the piece. Check out these pictures to get an idea of what you could do in your bathroom! Add to your coastal cottage or bring in some charm with a repurposed piece in the bathroom!

What’s Trending Wednesday
We’ve been seeing rustic, coastal design done right lately and we’re loving it. You can tell because it feels right. I know we can throw out some design jargon as to why it works or compliments this or that, but deep down you can just feel it throughout your entire body. You don’t want to change anything and you don’t need to add anything either. Lately we’ve been seeing a lot of original wood floors and wall panels. Also, people these days aren’t afraid to bring in a little color. Home owners are accepting and embracing the original installations of their home instead of ripping it all out and redoing it from top to bottom. We’re attributing it to this day and age’s DYI attitude mixed in with a little of the latest style trends and we’re loving it!
