We’re thinking of maybe renovating one of our bathrooms (our only bathroom really, since we just turned the other one into a small laundry room). On one hand I feel it’s not really necessary to renovate, because even though the room is quite boring and ugly (plastic carpet and walls in beige), it would probably hold together for 10 or 20 more years and I don’t like being a part of the whole renovation/redecoration-hysteria that I think is going on (but of course I’m already a part of that).
On the other hand, the bathroom hasn’t been renovated for 20 years or so, and since we’re planning on living here for quite some time, it would be nice to renovate sooner rather than later. It’s not like we’re tearing out a completely new bathroom just because we didn’t like the design… And, once we started thinking about it we came up with several ideas on how to make the space more practical for us. Not to mention more beautiful (who am I kidding? practical, pft!).
I’ve always liked checkered floors, perhaps in combination with white and green on the walls.
Since the room is quite long and narrow, I would also like to have a big mirror covering one of the walls, to make it look a little bit bigger. I really like the wooden frame on the mirror below. And the light bulbs above it.
