When we first moved in, there was a tiny, boring, white bathroom off the laundry room. It drove me crazy with all the doors we needed to work around in order to use it. The door into the bathroom did not open all the way. As we entered the room, we had to squeeze up next to the wall so we could close the door. Not only did we have to deal with the door to the bathroom itself, but there were two other doors that obstructed the entrance into the bathroom-one from the garage and the other from the kitchen. When both those doors were open, there was less than 12” to get through the doorway. It drove me crazy and I found myself walking to the other end of the house rather than maneuver around all those doors. When we did our major kitchen/laundry room remodel, we relocated the bathroom to where the washer and dryer once were. This new room is so much more functional. It is easy access from the garage and from the kitchen.
We found a vanity combo that we liked and used the granite top as a jumping off point for the rest of the room.
I found that I was using a lot of beige as I was picking out paint. Mostly because I didn’t know (and I still don’t know) what direction I was going with my color schemes so I wanted to play it safe until I figured it out. I was ready to try something other than beige. As I was reading this blog, she described the color as a misty green/blue that changes colors from blue to green. I was intrigued and I thought I would take a chance on it.
I have never blindly picked out a color by just a description from someone else before. I know computer monitors do not usually give a true representation of the color, but I decided to be bold and go for it. I’m sure glad I did. I LOVE IT!
I know that these pictures doesn’t do it justice, but it is so much better than the boring white, dated, bathroom with too many doors (below).
The room is not a 100% done, but the remaining “to do” list isn’t too extensive.
- Paint the window ledge
- Install woodwork
- Paint the door
- Install door knob
- Find accessories and wall décor
- Decide on color for hand towels
