Apartment Bathroom Makeover

White Bathroom Decor @themerrythoughtMy bathroom is finally finished! I hadn’t changed my bathroom around at all in the three and a half years that I’ve been living here and it was about time! It feels so good to finally have one of my rooms completely done. (I’m hoping to convince my landlord for some new flooring at some point too!) Being a renter has been a real struggle for me because I just want to rip up all the carpet, tear out cupboards, drill so many things into the walls… But this room makeover is pretty basic and renter-friendly and has left me feeling pretty dang satisfied with this space. (Just check with your landlord before painting, usually it’s fine as long as it’s a neutral color.)

    Wow! It looks so fresh! Kinda Scandinavian style which is so popular lately. I love the ladders and the mat in front of the shower! Nice job!ReplyCancel

    I love how it’s full of beautiful and cute decorations and yet it’s so simple and minimal. It’s amazing! 🙂

    This is absolutely beautiful. I adore white rooms and love all the natural and botanical touches you’ve added here.

    I don’t typically like all white rooms, but the all white totally works for your small bathroom. It really opens it up!

    Love this! I used to be very afraid of white spaces – I always needed color somehow. Now that I’m older and approach life with a minimalist eye (most of the time), I embrace the simplicity and chicness that white interior spaces provide. Plus – I think your bathroom looks even bigger now!ReplyCancel
