Decorating Bathrooms

 If you haven't guessed yet, bathrooms is the topic today....
This bathroom below doesn't scream kid friendly or realistic for me or anyone I know. Even though you might love to have one of these on a vacation or occasionally dip into the tub for a nice long bath it just isn't going to be seen in most homes. It also appears somewhat sterile but yet serene. I mean honestly who would sit in a tub anywhere in Jacksonville with windows that big looking out to the entire world? But as you can tell there are mountains in this picture. So maybe that's why this bathroom worked for the owners.

 Bathrooms can be somewhat expensive to fix up and the last thing on the to-do list for most homeowners.  But why wait so long to fix up a room that you go to every-time you get ready? Bathrooms can be sproused up without spending alot of money. All you have to do is any or all of the following options: paint cabinets, change the fixtures, add a decorative curtain, or add a splash of color. If you really want to make a big change fairly easy then take out the old cabinets and add a classic double sink console.If your bathroom is small add a single console. It will make a big difference.

Now this picture looks a little more realistic. Do you agree?
You could also find consoles at garage sales, or stores around town and have a hole cut out of the top for your sink. Which means you would get to pick the sink out. Note: you would also want to check the back of the furniture and make sure you can cut an area out, allowing room for pipes, but a handy man 
(aka-husband) could easily do that.

Yes, this bathroom is yellow but adding a splash of color makes small bathrooms look bigger. It also shabby chic.

This is the normal layout of most bathrooms these days. These owners took a standard bathroom and kicked it up a notch by creating a natural and calming bathroom. They added a dark custom framed mirror, cabinets that look like a piece of furniture, and a pinch of color on the bathroom wall.

Remember bathrooms can be a source of decorative inspiration, making them the place that people prepare themselves in the morning and rejuvenate at night. So the next time you walk into your unfinished bathroom think about the simple inexpensive things you can do to create a space that you will enjoy. Something that will give you more storage and be functional for you and your family. And of course you can always e-mail me and I would be more then happy to help you out! I love to decorate!
