As you can see in the following "before" pictures, the bathroom needed a bit of personality. It's a nice size room, but there was just way too much white and not a lot of storage. There was no medicine cabinet, only one towel bar... It's a bit tight for a couple.
I would love to reconfigure the bathroom, change the towel bar (I really don't like the plastic ones) but there's only so much you can do in a rented space. Still there are simple ways to make it your own, make it more functional and give it a bit of personality. The color scheme for the bathroom is similar to that of the rest of the place, as discussed earlier in a previous post. Of course in a bathroom changing the shower curtain makes a big difference because it takes a good portion of the available wall space. I used a charcoal shower curtain, which definitely makes a statement. I plan to add a special treatment to the corner wall next to the tub. (more on this later)
On the opposite wall I used a dark gray paint (Gray from Benjamin Moore). The rest of the walls were kept white to not darken the space too much.
Against the dark wall, additional storage, in the form of IKEA's Estetisk CD Cabinet, were used to store extra items. They were installed a bit high to avoid hitting your head while brushing your teeth. I love the contrast of the wood against the dark wall.
There is still some more work to do to finalize it, but it's getting there. Stay tuned for more later.
