Bathroom Refresh Design Inspiration

I mentioned last week that our 2018 plans include more home projects, especially a bigger upstairs renovation. But before we embark on that, I’m itching to finalize a few more things downstairs — especially a refresh of our master bathroom design.

The one thing holding me back was a partial glass enclosure on our shower. While it sounds pretty in theory, it honestly made our showering experience awful. It was freezing! It was also a pain to clean and never up-kept before we moved in, leaving it cloudy with water spots. (No matter how hard I scrubbed, they wouldn’t budge!}

Since I wasn’t about to risk breaking glass, we hired a contractor to remove the enclosure and patch up the walls & tile. As of Friday, it’s gone and I finally feel ready to start refresh!

The thing is, I’ve been pinning tons of bathroom images to inspire our upstairs bathroom re-do. So the hardest part of this project will be creating a unique look for each one. (You can see more of what I’m pinning and my favorite spaces on Pinterest here, here, and here.) I’m obviously a huge fan of Studio McGee!

Here’s a look at some of the pieces that will help bring this new design to life:Bathroom Refresh Inspiration | Modern, Streamlined Bathroom Design

shop the look: brass mirror (such a steal!) | canisters | matte black hooks | matte black towel bar | wood mirror (under $100!) | black sconce | brass sconce | art | tile | faux greenery |

We anticipate going down to the studs with the upstairs bathroom design, so new tile and sconces are realistic. In this bathroom, we’ll likely be sticking to the wood floor and pendant light that’s in place. But I couldn’t help pulling some of my favorites. You’ll likely see these again!

A fresh coat of paint, a new vanity mirror and a couple of small accents will go a long way in this space. I ordered the matte black CB2 hardware and we installed new door handles to coordinate. I’m on the hunt for some shelves to provide a little storage but also some styling area. I’ve always loved these marble ones, but am not sure they fit the space yet. And I can’t forget to bring in a little greenery, even if it’s faux.

I’ll share our progress over on Instagram (follow #no2project for all of our house content) with hopefully a full reveal later this month. Cannot wait to have this bathroom fitting our vision. And yes, my first shower with a shower curtain was gloriously warm! 🙂

    I love your color scheme! It’s sailor-esque but the black makes everything so clean. Can’t wait to see what you decide on!

      I can’t help but love blues but I read once that every room should have a pop of black and I agree, it makes it feel grounded and modern.
