Remodel plans: Upstairs Bathroom

by megan
Published: Last Updated on

I have a suspicion that the upstairs bathroom in the house was a former closet due to it’s teeny tiny size. It’s so small, in fact, that I can’t get a full picture of the room:

The smallness of this bathroom is going to be its saving grace to me, because I plan to really rehab this into a dramatic bathroom. By painting it bold colors, I know that it won’t make the room feel bigger, but it’ll definitely have a statement behind it. Also, I’m hopeful that someday we’ll be able to built it out into a bigger bathroom, but that’s a few years down the road.


  • Angled ceilings
  • Tiny Space
  • No Window
  • Tile-a-palooza
  • No storage

My inspiration:

Is this not just BRILLIANT?
