Inspiration File – Swoon-worthy Bathrooms
I could win some $. This financial windfall would be the result of football, which is shocking given my complete lack on knowledge on the sport. Will I invest this money or use it to take a French class? No! I will use it to remodel our main bathroom.
The main bathroom in our home has long been a problem area for us. It needs a real remodel, like change the floor plan and possibly expand it remodel. My illegal gambling win will not cover a complete overhaul, but it will allow me to make major cosmetic changes that can get us through until we have the money (5-10 years from now) to really remodel.
Where does any good blogger begin when contemplating a cosmetic overhaul? The worldwide web of course! Here are the bathrooms I found that made me swoon.
Searching for bathroom images I loved was actually quite an eye-opener. There are common threads running through each bath:
1. I guess I like white. This is odd since there is no white room in my house. White is such a clean color; it makes sense that I would gravitate to it for a bathroom.
2. That said, I seem to also like pops of crisp, bold color. Blue, in particular, shows up repeatedly in these photos.
3. Seven of the nine photos have small, mosaic tiles on the floors. While I love this, it isn’t as practical for a mom of a toddler with another on the way. And, again, I seem to like white on the floors. But I also seem to like the mix of white and black which is a classic flooring combo.
Now I have some ideas on where to begin when & if I get to make over my bath. What similarities do you notice? Are there design elements you find yourself repeatedly drawn to?
