Renovating Bungalow 404: Bath Inspiration

I am stuck on what to do with the three bathrooms in Bungalow 404, well I haven’t really put in the effort on collecting ideas and putting them together. The first bath is in the hall in between the master bedroom and the second bedroom.  I have decided (95% sure) that I would like to paint the hallway Mink by Benjamin Moore, it’s a chocolate brown and I like the idea of bold colors in small spaces.  I think it will elevate what would normally be a boring hallway.

I think that a soft blue bath off of the brown hall is going to be a great contrast. I’m sold on white subway tile and in this particular bath I will be doing a tile wainscoting. I haven’t decided what to do with the floor yet. We are stuck with a vanity because there was a huge air return in the bathroom that the owner didn’t want to relocate so the return had to be framed and boxed in so it will be tied into a vanity to make it disappear. I had originally planned for a pedestal.

I would really like to incorporate a glass door and this one is right on the mark. The wall color on my monitor appears to be the subtlest of blues also something I am searching for.

I like shaded sconces a lot like the ones featured in this image from pointclickhome.  I’m always looking for something timeless, it’s so easy to be so excited about something for your house and in 5 to 10 years want to desperately rip it down. I’m trying to avoid that.

These images helped me peer into the future with the use of a blue/green wall color and white subway tile

I was also considering using small mosaic tiles on the shower walls. Instead of the blue mosaic, I was thinking maybe some white mosaic.

White subway tiled shower walls also a consideration

And I really like IKEA’s circular Grundtal mirror, at $29.99 I like it even more

the estate of things chooses Ikea

Again with the mosaics, only a different palette

So I’ve got some work to do on finding the right vanity that is going to hide that hideous air return and I’ve got a lot of concrete decisions to make on this bath with two left to go.

  • That glass door will look phenomenal in the little hall area between those rooms.
    And, you can get your mirror straight from Ikea when they open next month! Yay for North Carolina.
