We’ve established that a great benefit of this bathroom is the abundance of natural light streaming in all day. So to build on that, let’s take a look at the design plan and move on to the fun stuff.
Here’s the list of things this bathroom needs to go from dreary and sad to fresh and happy!:
- Paint walls a clean, neutral and earthy green. It was a long process for me to figure out the right color and I decided on Benjamin Moore’s Jack and the Beanstalk.
- Remove wall cabinet & replace with two floating wood shelves. That cabinet has zero style and its height does a great disservice to the whole bathroom by being so clunky.
- Spray paint light fixture white to blend into the rest of the space. I have a strong dislike for this light fixture because its proportions are too large for this space and it has a weird warm silver color with brass accents, but painting it will make it less noticeable.
- Replace striped shower curtain with a white, floor to ceiling curtain. In small spaces like this one, using an extra long shower curtain visually elongates the height of the ceiling and creates a clean line. The extra fabric will also soften up all the hard surfaces.
- Introduce some life into the space with indoor plants. Their organic shape and color will also help to create a relaxed and earthy atmosphere.
