The next stop on our home tour is the master bathroom. I can't tell you how good it feels to have an entire "section" of our house done. The master bedroom, bathroom, and closet constitute as a section right? It makes me feel better about the fact that the rest of the house is still far from set.
When we moved in, there really were zero things that needed to be done to the bathrooms. The previous owners had already put a new stain and finish on all the bathroom vanities, they had installed new lighting, and even framed the mirrors in two of the three bathrooms. The only things that all the bathrooms were missing were toilet paper holders, and towel racks, which we were able to easily add ourselves. The plus side to getting them on our own was that we were able to buy all the fixtures at once, and now the all the bathrooms match and look perfect.
One thing we struggled with in the master bathroom was place a towel rack somewhere. There was a hook next to the shower for a towel or two to hang dry, but there wasn't a good place to have a full bar towel rack. We could have hung one on the large wall next to the shower, but the switch for the bathroom fan is right there and we worried about wet towels dripping on the switch and causing an electrical problem.
When troubleshooting ideas with pinterest, and the help of my friends mom, we decided that floating shelves would probably be the best solution for the space. We installed the shelves this last weekend and I'm so glad with how they turned out. They've given us the space to store extra towels, while still using the small hook to dry the ones that we've already used. I also love that I can store extra toilet paper in the wicker basket, and other bathroom items like cotton rounds and q-tips in the small glass jars.
We also got really lucky that all these little bathroom items that I bought four years ago have been able to work with us in every house that we lived in. It's fun to have items that follow you everywhere because it's always a fun memory of all the places you've lived. We bought these when we lived in a 700 square foot two story townhouse in North Carolina. Everything was so small, the paint was peeling everywhere, and this soap dispenser and toothbrush holder were probably the nicest thing we owned at the time. It's funny to see how far you've come sometimes when you feel like you're not going anywhere.
The one thing that probably isn't our favorite about the bathroom is our shower. It's pretty small, and has some staining on it that we haven't been able to remove, but it's one of those things where I'm not about to rip out an existing shower and destroy my bathtub for a bigger one. Especially when I've been dreaming about having said bathtub for years. So we make due with a smaller shower, and if we ever get that annoyed with it, we can suck it up and take a shower in the kids bathroom.
A huge plus to this house that our last house didn't have is the double vanity. we have so much room to store extra bathroom products like shaving cream, body wash, and our favorite Quilted Northern® Ultra Soft and Strong® with Clean Stretch. We always buy the mega packs (4x bigger roll) so that we're always prepared for last minute guests and visitors, and now it's awesome to have space to store it all! Quilted Northern® is a 100 year brand, so you know you can trust them for all your bathroom needs. Plus, you can buy it at Walmart, so... done, right?
