Master Bath Wishes & Inspiration | For the Home

In cleaning up and reorganizing our bathroom last weekend, we were reminded of some of the things are kind of a pain with it.  Mainly, the lack of storage.  Here's a little before and after, which I'm sure everyone wants to see!
So not a "before" before- we had started filling the tub, and had the bleach out ready to use.  Little Lady had to inspect things before we kicked them all out to the other room.
The one thing that we are unable to change is the lack of outlets.  There is one in this entire bathroom.  Between our sinks.  We both have electric toothbrushes.  Scott immediately went and got a jack, but still I can only either plug in my blow dryer or my straightener.  It baffles me because there are three in the half bath.

Ooooh the sinks.  Love the pedestal, hate the lack of storage.  Because of the way the room is configured, it wouldn't be practical to put in counters.  All our (my) stuff winds up around the tub or stashed in this nifty IKEA wire/metal drawer system.  I'm thinking some shelving like this on either or one) end of our tub.  Though, I'm still not sure how it would work due to our windows.

Some open shelving like this may be the better option, and it could run the length of the wall with the toilet.  Tons of space for organization!


This would be a less intensive way to go- though I'm not sure there's more than 8 inches between our sinks.  The mirrors are a great size as well- I'd love to get rid of our small oval mirrors!  Also, LOVE the color of the walls.

That IKEA thing- we need to be rid of it and come up with something else to set between the tub and commode.  Or not.   This may be a better option for the end of the tub/ wall with the sinks on it.

What do ya'll think?!  I just keep going back to the built-in in the first picture, but torn as to how it would look/work with our windows!

  1. Oooh I love that Ikea shelving at the end of the bath! I also love the shape of your windows although I can see how that would make it difficult to fit in shelving. Good luck!

  2. Hahah thanks! I'm thinking floating shelves are the way to go. Those 3 little windows let in a lot of light during the day, which I love, too!

    First of all I love your bathroom! I like the shelves at one side of the bathtub, but functionally speaking not sure it would work LOL! Can't wait to see what you decide on! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  5. Thanks! I'm not sure how they would work, either, but I'm thinking open shelving that starts about half way over the toilet, and stops about half way over the bathtub, would work the best. It'll be another 2 years probably until we get around to actually doing any of these projects :)

  6. Yes I'm now on a hunt for wall wine racks that aren't breaking the bank. I think it and some shelving on the other side would be the best solution

  7. wall wine racks via Container Store look pretty cheap as do floating shelves! Was just scouting them haha. ♥

    IMAX Towel/Wine Rack
    Looks the same but doesn't have the best reviews... and

    Counterflory Wine or Towel Rack

    Looks a little stronger. Yes, I shamefully copied my amazon affilate links in :)

    Love the inspiration you chose! If you replaced the pedestal sinks with a double vanity you'd get so much more storage. All our bathroom stuff fits in our vanity.

  13. Yeah we really would, but I think that it would block off the tub too much, and would make the whole room seem smaller.

    I like the build in shelves idea. I think when you don't have a ton of space to work with, you don't really want to add more stuff to it. I also love the navy walls in the picture. We just painted our bedroom Hale Navy and I am totally in love with it.

  15. I love it for a bathroom or the master, though it might make it too dark in my house! I agree with not wanting to add more stuff to the floor of the room, for sure!

  16. I really want to repaint ... the entire house... lol but specifically, the living areas, a light gray. Unfortunately, every time I think it's a good idea, I look up and realize that I'm not getting on a two story ladder to do the living room, and it's very hard to convince the husband to do so!
