Bathroom remodel

We're remodeling our downstairs bathroom. I don't know if you've been to our house before, but the bathroom on the first floor has to be the smallest bathroom ever created. It's a tiny space, but it wouldn't be that bad if it were just painted and decorated properly. So that's what we're doing.

Previously it was kind of a light brown color, kind of the color of mud. The old owners got paint all over the ceiling. Here's what we've done (or will do):
  • Repainted the ceiling white and repainted the walls a really light yellow
  • Took down the old medicine cabinet and put up a plain mirror with dark brown trim
  • Repaint the vanity cabinets the same shade of dark brown
  • Replace the cabinet hardware to something more modern, like nickel
  • Change out the sink fixture from a brass finish to something darker, like this (it'll match the hardware)
  • Hang a dark brown wall cabinet above the potty for storage
It's not much but it will make a big difference. You can probably tell that our theme is light yellow for walls, dark brown for cabinets and trim, and bronze for hardware and fixtures. Should look awesome. All that HGTV will finally pay off.

A great and inexpensive addition to any bathroom and it also makes it much easier to clean is the Bathroom Bidet Sprayer from http://www.bathroomsprayers.com. You can clean yourself, the toilet, the tile, even diapers if you have any. This is a must have for the modern bathroom and it helps the environment by cutting down the use of toilet paper.

Did you install one of those at the Slovenia house?
