If you’re looking to redecorate your bathroom which hasn’t been updated since the 70s, look no further. Kill two birds with one stone when you’re replacing your old tiling and extend the palette to your walls as well, with some large tiles.

Not enough storage space in your bathroom? Think outside the box – literally. Use wall studs to your advantage and build some drawers into the space between them for extra storage space.

Utilise your corners! An interesting way to display your bath tub is to put it at an angle, working with the corners of a smaller bathroom. Make sure to use the space between the tub and the walls by putting some small shelves (or a re-purposed bar stool, as seen here) for your bath time reading and wine glass.

Re-purpose an old french door with a fresh paint job and use it as a shower door. You’ll see that there’s a shower curtain on the inside of the door to protect the door and washroom (among other things).

This one’s a bit less easy to recreate, but if you’re in a secluded area (or a New York high rise), consider forgoing curtains and blinds for a clean, streamlined look.

About Karen

My name is Karen Hughes and I'm an Interior Designer from Dublin, Ireland. I’m passionate about design and I started this blog as a way to connect with others just as passionate as myself. I tend to ramble on about all sorts of things, projects I’m working on, people, places and things that inspire me (and some that don’t). So put the kettle on, get comfy and settle in.

  1. Nice blog Geoffry, some great pictures and my favorite has to be the one in the new york high rise! One thing when it comes to doing up bathrooms is mould problems and how to deal with them. If you don’t mind I’m going to leave a link here to a blog I wrote on mould and how to deal with it. Exciting stuff, I know! To be fair though mould can be a problem in a lot of bathrooms or wet rooms even. Anyway, here you go.. http://oisinbutler.ie/mould-removal-and-how-to-prevent-mould/

  2. Don’t mind at all Oisin and thanks for visiting 🙂
