Decorating small bathrooms can be a challenge.
- Does too much “stuff” overwhelm a little space?
- Will dark paint make the room feel smaller?
- How do I find storage space when there is none?
Use paint to make a big “splash” in a small bathroom.
This Jack & Jill bathroom is virtually a walk-way between two bedrooms. The toilet is opposite the sink and the shower is to the left. We could not make any structural changes so I had to work with the original footprint of the room.
I didn’t want to block the natural light from the window, so I designed a simple valance with a curved hem and feminine bow. Very pretty and dainty.
Although there is a linen closet behind the door, girls need easy access to stuff they use everyday. So I stacked baskets under the sink and tucked them behind a floral skirt. (It hides the ugly, old plumbing too.)
I pulled a color from the fabric (bold cranberry) for the walls. Instead of making the room feel smaller, it gives volume to the space.
The original medicine cabinet and sconces are topped with delicate floral stencil. The finishing touches are a hand-made rag rug and towels trimmed in coordinating ribbon.
This bathroom works because everything is the same shade of red with accents of blue and white. You don’t have to be a young girl to love this space!
