You haven't seen much of this room, and there's a reason for it.
It is bad.
But all that is changing. It needs new everything: tub, hardware, sink, toilet, tile, lights, plus concealed storage and shelves that aren't slabs of MDF rested atop rusty L-brackets.
So here's what I'm thinking, in a few shots:
Colors/balance-wise, something like this above. Dark stone (or stone-look) tile floors, subway tile walls in white. I'm dreaming of finding a perfect antique dresser or sideboard in a dark finish that I could repurpose as a vanity, possibly with a vessel sink. Someday soon I will be undertaking a road trip through all my favorite local antiques stores to search for such a piece.
I'm not sure what color I'll end up going with above the subway tile-- I really like the contrast here, but don't want to make anything too dark. Fortunately, paint will be one of the last, and cheapest, steps, so I can wait to decide.
Since I'm pretty adamantly anti-Venetian blind, I'm planning on frosting the window (as long as Patrick doesn't have any objections to that) and DIYing a faux-roman shade like this one. Lately I've been really into Marimekko-ish minimalistic fabrics, so we'll see what I end up with.
Other than all this stuff, we're going to bump out the wall behind the toilet to conceal the ugliness behind it, and maybe do recessed shelves there.
Over the weekend we'll be "moving out" of our upstairs bathroom and into our downstairs one (which fortunately also has a shower!) and making a big-time shopping trip for new fixtures, etc. It's going to be a long process, but one we'll be enjoying a long time.
