After tackling the down stairs bathroom I was ready to head upstairs and see what could be done there.
My 1st step is always to analyze the room and look for the positives!! This room really didn't need much work. The blue and brown were a little to dark especially for a bathroom with no windows. Here are the BEFORE pics:
Here are my list of positives for this room:
-LOVE the built in!!!
-Good Neutral Wall Color
-Nice White Cabinets
This transformation was really just de-cluttering and staging to bring out the positives of the room!!
First step bringing this built-in to LIFE by staging it to make it "POP" and look like an added feature of the room. Adding white elements such as the towels and wash clothes give the built-in a purpose. The white vases and greenery soften the space and add the much needed greenery to this space. I wanted to give it some charm so I added a rustic wooden box holding clean, simple glass jars full of soap and sponges.
WHITE, WHITE, WHITE!!! To lighten this room up especially because it has no windows we needed to add white!!
I switched out the silver knobs on the cabinets with dark bronze to make them "pop" and add a contrast to the room.
The wooden tray on the counter ties in with the wooden box in the built-in. The vases, jars and greenery all are extensions of what is featured in the built-in and break up the long space of the counter tops.
I didn't want to over-do decor in a bathroom, simple and practical. By adding the white hand towels along the counter not only is it a practical way to display them but it make the room look clean and fresh!!
Stay tuned for more room by room transformations to come!!!
