If you are leasing, these are all cosmetic changes! I think its a great reminder that paint and accessories can do wonders.

I wanted this bathroom to look nice for guests staying with us during the week of our wedding, but obviously, since I was getting married, I didn’t have the time or money to pour into this bathroom. I started collecting items I liked over the months leading up to this “light” reno, and I had some wonderful family gift us the mirrors for a bridal shower gift. This whole bathroom DIY totaled around $200-$250. I tried to identify the main issues of the bathroom, and focus on those main flaws:

-There was a yellow/off white cast to the bathroom, so I wanted to use a blue to bring balance to the warmth in the room.

-The mirror felt very builder-grade, so I wanted some statement mirrors to anchor the bathroom and make it feel fresh.

I would LOVE to change out the counter tops and re-tile the shower, but we are only planning on living in this house for a few more years, so those are things I probably will not get to before then. However, I do still plan on updating the following:

  • Bathroom sink faucets: I like these from Amazon, since they are cheap and look like they would be easy to clean. I am also considering just replacing one faucet, and maybe getting a sink cap or large square piece of granite to cover one of the sinks so there is more counter space.
  • Light fixures: The current one is rusted, and just doesn’t match. I am hoping to do something like this, soon.
  • Towel racks/add hooks and a new shower rod. I am not particular on the look of these, I just want them to be sturdy and big enough for the towels to lay flat so they will actually dry. I would also like to add a few hooks for hanging a robe and clean clothes.
