Renovation Ideas: Powder Bath and Laundry

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

I've already posted about my renovation ideas for the Library and Dining Room, and the Kitchen and Family Room. Today's post is all about the powder bath and laundry. Since these rooms are both very small, I feel like I can get creative with the finishes. Smaller rooms = cheaper finishes. I'm putting wallpaper in both these rooms because I've been dying to use wallpaper, and I doubt I could afford it in a larger room.

Everything in the powder room is being replaced. Here are the sources:
The wallpaper is pretty expensive, so that project probably won't happen right away. I purchased a mirror from an antique store and painted it Pantone Emerald, which I think looks more teal than emerald.

Our original plan was the wait a few months to tile the laundry room floor, but it's so awful that we're just going to do it before moving in. My dad has lots of tiling experience and a tile saw, so he will be helping Sam with that project. This is the only room downstairs that won't have bamboo floors.

I plan to wallpaper two walls in the laundry room - the back wall and the wall opposite the washer and dryer. I've asked my mom to help me hang the paper since she has lots of experience. This is the only thing I've already bought for the laundry room.

In a few months (or years), I want to replace the wire shelf with wall cabinets. I would love to paint them a minty green to match the wallpaper.

I like both these light fixtures for the laundry room:

  1. You find the most amazing wallpapers!

  2. Amazing choices. When we renovated we put bamboo floors throughout (except for bathrooms) as well. We're having some challenges with a small section in the kitchen though right where the sink is - I think that area gets damp sometimes and so some mold has developed. We're trying to find the time to replace those planks before the problem gets worse. :/

  3. I'd love to see the end result with these cute stuff you're adding in the place. :)
