All you've seen of our master bathroom is from the welcome to Sunny post. This is the only picture you've seen...
By master bathroom I mean, it's the only full bathroom in our apartment and it's well... not that great. It's livable and fine... but not cute. at. all. and barley functional.
The bathtub didn't even have a stopper until a few days ago when our bathroom
pipe broke and flooded our downstairs neighbors bathroom. We were told it was just a reaction to super old plumbing and nothing we did. #thankgoodnes The plumber
rushed out, fixed everything and gave us a good ol' bathtub stopper! That was an exciting upgrade in casa de Dorobek.
Let me show you around...
That was quick :) No towel racks. Turquoise tile. Although, I really can't complain about our apartment... (kitchen only has one drawer!) The living is room is ginormous and the natural light and views are amazing! Compromise is what it's all about. And I will take loads of natural light over towel racks and funky tile any day!
Living room views always make me feel better about some of the crusty things we live with in Sunny. Not so shabby...
Back to the master bathroom...
Here's the other side... I did do a super simple upgrade in the medicine cabinet. The apartment came with no towel racks or TP holders, and there is only one electrical outlet in the bathroom. So, only one of our tooth brushes can live in here. I moved myself to the half bathroom, it's bigger anyway :)
Andy bought this TP holder at Target when he moved in... It was the cheapest one they had. It's functional and frugal...
we're he's sold. I want a cute one that doesn't attach itself to the toilet.
That's the good, the bad, and the ugly of our master bathroom.
Let's find some internet inspiration...
This tiny turquoise tiled bathroom
gives me hope. It's almost the same color as our tile and it looks so pretty and clean.
I love this bathroom's use of the door + magnetic paint as storage
. I'm not sure magnetic paint will work with our landlord, but we certainly can add a rod or 2 with S hooks to help with storage. That's the kind of thing that doesn't cost much, and we would just leave in the apartment when we left. Another tenant would certainly appreciate any extra storage in this place!
Here is a real life tiny bathroom makeover from 320 Sycamore
that I adore. 3 shelves above the toilet would be greatness in our space and I love the magazine racks next to the toilet. Although there might not be enough room between out toilet and tub.
In the name of sanity, I've started making lists to attempt to whip this place into shape.
Here is what is
going down in the water closet:
It's a rental so as much as I want to paint, remove and install things... I'm trying to be realistic. I want to DIY that mirror and install some clean white subway tiles in the bathroom. My boring, oh so logical brain helped me make a list that includes things that we can take with us to our next rental or leave here and not feel bad about. Do you have a tiny, rental bathroom? How do you solve the bathroom storage problem? Does your bathroom only have one outlet? Don't you think that is strange? I'd love to hear...
- Buy and install 2 towel racks
- Buy 2 pretty towels to give the wall a little color
- DIY the shower curtain (make it work with the tile and new towels)
- Do something with the bath mat (the brown one is from our old house)
- Something above the toilet. Storage, art?
