I am sharing a room with you that I rarely post about. Not because it’s not photo worthy, but because I haven’t done anything to the room. No changes have been made since we moved into the house.
The room is the master bath or what is now being called in decorating terminology the “primary bathroom”.
When we moved into the house this primary bath had just been gutted and remodeled before the house was put up for sale.
It was the only room in the house that had been updated. I probably wouldn’t have chosen the colors, fixtures and finishes, but it works and I have been content with it.
Over the 7 years that we have lived in the house now, Ed and I have updated all the other rooms, but have not done a thing to this room besides adding bath mats and counter top bath accessories.
Oh… I did do a small DIY. I made wood drawer dividers for the top drawer to help me keep my makeup and toiletries organized. It is an easy project that you can learn how to do in this post – How to Make Wood Drawer Dividers.
There is another full bathroom in the house and one powder room. We gutted and made each of these bathrooms over. Tap the links under the photos above to see the before and afters.
The color scheme of the room is grey, tan and dark brown. The granite counter is busy and when I was trying to decide on what color bath mats and towels to use in the room, I decided to go with white to keep the space feeling calm and spa like.
What I like most about the room is that it is spacious. I would love to know what the layout of the room was before this.
I am sure it had a bathtub since the house was built in the 1970’s – now it does not – it has a walk-in shower that I like.
All the doors in the house are stained dark walnut. When we first moved in I was thinking about painting them, but they have grown on me.
The Pella windows open with cranks. They have mini blinds inside the double glass. To close the blinds there is a roller wheel at the bottom corner of each window that opens and closes them. I have grown to like them as they are minimal and clean lined.
Recently the white glass soap dispenser I keep on a white tray on the counter broke. When I was cleaning up the glass, I noticed that the bath mats were starting to look old and dingy.
Then as I looked around the room so were the towels and there was a chip in a ceramic soap dish I keep on the counter. Time for a decorative accessory refresh.
What I Would Like to Add To the Room
So since I am kind of out of DIY mode for the next two months because of my hip, I thought I would go online to search for new spa-like towels and bath mats.
Of course, like any shopping trip, I also found a few more bathroom accessories on Wayfair that I would like to add to the room. :-)
1. Shower Head / More Bathroom Fixtures | 2. Hand Towels / More Bath Linens . 3. Art Print / More Wall Art | 4. Apothecary Jars / More Storage Containers. | 5. 6 Piece Towel Set / More Bath Towels | 6. Glass Jar / More Bath Organization | 7. Toothbrush Holder / More Bathroom Accessories | 8. Soap Dish / More Countertop Accessories | 9. Soap Dispenser / More Bath Accessories | 10. Teak Bench / More Shower Benches. | 11. Bath Rug / More Bath Mats. | 12. Drawer Organizer / More Cabinet Organization
Of all the bathroom accessories I found, I am most excited about the teak bench. We have a built in marble tile bench in the shower so it is not needed there. I think it would look nice under the trio of windows with a stack of folded towels underneath. The color would coordinate with the wood entry door in the room.
The other item is the slide out cabinet organizer. It will make keeping all my lotions and potions in the cabinet better organized and easy to get to since the racks slides out.
I also love this soap dish – which is more like a rack, but I really like it and can’t wait to replace the chipped ceramic one that is on my bathroom counter now.
Even though adding these items won’t make a huge change to the room, they will refresh it and that will make me smile every time I enter the room.
