Bathroom Renovation: Design Inspiration

Happy Tuesday friends 😊  Today we are sharing two design boards and some inspiration for an exciting renovation we have planned…our main floor bathroom. This is a project we have wanted to do for quite some time but it was pretty low on our priorities because of time and budget. Now that we have finished our basement and renovated our kitchen, we figured it was a good year to do it (our painted tub is also starting to chip away). We also wanted our renovation to coincide with The One Room Challenge although right now we are not so sure because we can’t really start our project unless we have settled on a design. And that has been quite hard to do!

Here are just some of our dilemmas:

  1. Black, steel, or chrome faucet fixtures?
  2. Floating shelves or cabinets?
  3. Colorful or white/gray mosaic tile?

We know what you’re thinking! That may seem like everything but we promise there are some things we do know for certain that we want.

  1. White subway tile.
  2. A narrow vanity.
  3. An accent wall in the shower.

With that in mind, here are two design boards that we came up with based on what we like. They do look very similar but there are some major differences with regards to floor tile, vanity color, fixtures, and mosaic tile choices. The reason there are three tile choices because even with two boards we couldn’t narrow things down. Heck, we even have a Pinterest board dedicated to all the mosaic tiles we like. If there was no such thing as a budget then we would hands down go with Moroccan fish tile. Unfortunately what we were quoted for a small area was almost more than our entire bathroom renovation budget (boo). The real question now for us is whether we should go with a white/gray stone tile or a bright pop of color like emerald or mint green. We are leaning toward a splash of color even though white herringbone and hexagon patterns are beautiful. Home Depot carries gorgeous arabesque tile that are very reasonably priced (decisions, decisions).

Before we get to our boards, here are some bathrooms that we saved in our bathroom inspiration Pinterest board that have really stood out and helped us realize what features and looks we like. Now only if we can settle on something.

All right. Without further ado here are our boards.

Our finished bathroom will probably pull features and inspiration from both boards and some of our favorite bathrooms but until we can be decisive and settle on a final look, there won’t be a finished bathroom. What do you guys think? Which board was your favorite? We would love to hear your thoughts and opinions in the comments below.

  1. I prefer your #2 board with silver-toned fixtures. I am also a fan of cabinets over floating shelves or at least a mix so you can hide the unsightly stuff. Have fun!!!! Jo @ Let’s Face the Music
