Guest Bathroom Before & After

Ok, can we talk about bathroom goals? All three of the bathrooms in my house are fairly small, but the basement guest bath is the biggest and brightest of them all. With a little facelift, it has quickly become our favorite bathroom child. Anel walked in and said, “Is this really our house? It looks so nice!”

It lives directly across the hall from our amazingly colorful and tropical guest room. It ties in the palm-leaf theme with a set of three tropical prints that we split up behind the toilet and next to the mirror. Although the two rooms are not matchy matchy, they flow together perfectly. And, oddly, while I’m obsessed with how the guest room turned out, I think I like the bath even better.

Like the guest room process, Prudence suggested this gorgeous trellis wallpaper first and we designed around that. I really wanted the space to feel bright, cheerful, fun, but not childish. We nailed it!

The light fixture above the mirror has been the product that I’ve been asked about the most, and I get it. It’s simple yet cool and really elevates any space. Plus it’s a great price point (and back in stock). What’s funny is that the electrician put it on upside down and I didn’t notice until the next day. I ended up liking it better like this, but we’re going to test it out both ways. You can see what it is supposed to look like here.

The other thing we did that made a big difference (you might not be able to tell from photos) is to clean up and repaint the wainscotting. We repainted all of our wainscotting upstairs with Benjamin Moore’s Decorator’s White and did the same here. It’s a really beautiful bright white that doesn’t feel too stark or sterile.

The only little mistake we made was the faucet which is too shiny (IMO) for the rest of the brass fixtures surrounding it. I don’t mind mixing metals and finishes, but the color ended up being slightly off so it doesn’t work as well this time. I’m on the hunt for a perfect match and will report back when I find it.

It was a pretty bland room before, scroll through for a bunch of before and after photos and all of the product details below. I hope you enjoy this little tour of the room!
