Can I see your bathroom? *update with a pic of my bathroom and some Q's*

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I want to decorate our bathroom. It's completely bland now. Half the walls are white, the other half are wood paneling. Kind of like this [pic found on google] except the wood is still brown and the wall part is white. 

I have no idea what kind of style I want to go on in there. I need some inspiration! We don't have a ton of space to work with. I just want ideas for a rug, shower curtain, the soap dispensers, tooth brush holders, and a trash can. 

If you don't want to post a pic then can you suggest me some ideas?


Hey all! Thanks for all the great replies. I've been looking through a lot of them. I took a pic of my bathroom. In all of it hideous glory. Don't bash lol I do have a question though! Do you think these sinks{pictured below] would work in there or would they be too big? 

*Also, don't mind all the junk, I was cleaning and we save old toilet paper rolls for crafts so that's why they aren't in the trash*

Now that you've seen the ugly space, maybe you can give me suggestions? I'm up for painting it and maybe in the long and distant future we can redo the floor. Maybe if you offer some cheap solutions we can do it sooner :)

I looooove your bath tub !!!!  It's so nice with the window above it too. If that were my bathroom, I'd be in there all the time. :-)

Your bathroom has a similar color scheme to mine.  I am still trying to figure out how to decorate it.  I stuck with the light green, dark green, tan and bronze color scheme.  I bought a bronze over-the-toilet shelf unit, I have an ivy and a bamboo plant, a simple green rug, a bronze bathroom canister set complete with a soap dish and toothbrush holder and rinsing cup.  I also have a miniature oil painting on my bathroom counter.  I have a dark brown wicker basket set with a light green and white material lining them.  The set includes a laundry hamper, a trash can (I put a walmart bag in it since I don't want the material to get nasty) and a a basket that I filled with different types of sponges.  I have a garden tub so the basket full of sponges and 2 white candles are decorating it.

Now I need to figure out what to do with the walls.

You could do something similar to what I have done but instead of bronze and dark brown, I would go with whatever metal color is on your toilet holder and towel rack and medium brown.

Oh!  We have a wooden toilet seat.  You might like it in your bathroom, it adds some color and it is much better than the plastic seats.

Our house really isn't all that fancy. The people who lived here before us were an elderly couple who took really good care of it. We got a good deal on it. I own a home daycare and my husband is currently student teaching while working on his masters in education. Our mortgage is probably less than some of you pay for rent on an apt.

What do yall do for a living to be able to buy a nice house?? Just curious... 

Quoting truelove813:

Um.. No, not really. I'm 22, and my husband is 25. We bought the house on our own, and paid under 100,000 for it. :/ You dont have to be rich to have things decorated nicely. But thanks, I think they are pretty!

Ignore my poor broken mirror. It happened forever ago. Also, that weird spot on the floor in the first picture isn't actually there. No idea why the picture looks like that lol.

We dance around the living room to classic rock
We play patty-cake with his feet
We're sillier than Spongebob & Patrick
We go together like PB & J
We're mother and son
And we're so cool, we make ice cubes jealous
