A master bathroom is an important room in our homes, whether it’s outdated or not. When I was growing up in my early years five of us shared one bathroom and somehow we made it work. Thankfully now most of us don’t have that situation, yet it’s not an inexpensive room to renovate and I don’t know about you…but our budget is spent in the areas of our home that are used (and seen) by all.
As I’ve mentioned before on the blog I find white cabinetry to be timeless, and there have been only minimal updates to this room in the years since with the white just as lovely as the day it was installed. Sure I’d like to update a few things, like the shower (open showers are not super practical) and the shiny wall tile. It’s not happening though so I add in various accents and accessories and switch them out often.
I keep the minimum essentials out for use and store the not so nice to look at stuff in the cabinets (like toilet paper:-). The tub has a bar of a favorite French lavender soap and a scrubbie on a vintage tray and a vintage bathing statue just seemed perfect for the corner spot. Bath oil in a French lemonade bottle looks prettier than it’s original container! Plants do well in a bathroom, especially delicate ferns. Quality bathroom fixtures have stood the test of time in this room, but they are starting to age and will need replacing soon.
