Our Guest Bathroom Makeover Reveal

March 26, 2019


One of the things I love about our house is that we have a guest bedroom! It’s come in handy several times, and I love that it allows my mom to spend the night. There’s a small guest bathroom across the hall from the room, and it’s also the bathroom that people would use when visiting our home, whether they spend the night or not. Since it’s such a “public” bathroom there were a few things I wanted to change about it. We added wallpaper, replaced fixtures and all of a sudden the space was transformed. I’ve been so excited to share the process of our guest bathroom makeover with you all, along with all the items we used. I hope this gives you some home inspiration!

Ever since we moved into our home we knew our guest bathroom was a project we wanted to tackle. It was mostly updated but it needed some changes. For example, there were very colorful sconces {similar to the sinks in this bathroom before we redid it}.

I knew I wanted some sort of wallpaper in this bathroom. I LOVE wallpaper but unfortunately, we don’t have many rooms that it would work in. I always think an entryway or a guest bathroom are a great place where you can make a big statement with wallpaper though. We chose neutral shades of black and white to keep the look really clean. I loved this abstract floral print from Designers Guild as soon as I saw it because of how soft and feminine it is. Plus the florals look like they’re painted on with brushstrokes, which is so cool because now we don’t feel like we have to hang art in that room. Here’s a similar option I was considering too.

We kept the subway tile the same as the new kids’ bathroom, but we changed the fixtures to chrome so we could slightly differentiate the styles of the two bathrooms. We used the exact same fixtures though for cohesiveness!

We originally were planning on just doing our upstairs bathroom, but our contractor actually gave us a deal for doing both back to back. I think it was easier for us to power through the two projects, especially since I had just reviewed all the tile, fixture, and paints options for the upstairs bathroom. I’m so glad both were finished before Corinna arrived, because home renovations are definitely hectic!
