Bathroom Remodel Ideas

CALLING ALL D.I.Y.ers!!!    

I could use some ideas, color schemes, and (the big key) experienced advice about doing a few things to our current bathroom.   First, take a look at the pictures and then we’ll get down to business.

Here are the conditions that we have to work with:

  1. Budget:   There is no budget.   As in, we have no money.   So whatever ideas you have need to be thrifty.
  2. Tagging on to #1, we are keeping a few things: countertops, cabinets, fixtures, sink, toilet, and bathtub.  Don’t get fancy on me, we’re not ripping out the bathtub to put in a state-of-the-art shower with 10 pulsating shower heads and a TV and Bose surround sound!  (one day…..*sigh*)
  3. Shower sliding doors/curtains.   Currently we have an accordion style, plastic door where glass would normally be.   I’m not a fan.  HELP!
  4. Style:    We are people who like simple designs, clean lines, and little clutter.   My husband appreciates that I don’t make everything hot pink with zebra stripes and “all-girlie-froo-froo.”
  5. Floors:  At the moment we have a deep forest green carpet that is in great condition.   I’m not sure our land-lord (Grandfather) would let us rip it out and put tile in there.   We might be able to do that when we get the dream shower.   So until then……the green carpet stays.

I’m curious to hear what you would do to this bathroom.   Ideas?   Suggestions?   Bring it on!

  1. Go for a “zen” forest feel. Get rid of the wallpaper (hardwork but you can do that). Leave the carpet if it’s new. My priority one would be the shower. Glass doors are a great option as long as Grandpa is never going to shower in there. We had to remove my Gran’s shower doors once she became older and needed help in and out of the bathroom.

  2. What color are the counter, sink, tub, and tile? Is it like a khaki? Or is it closer to green? I can’t tell on my phone…

    I saw the coolest option for a shower ‘door’ for tub/showers the other day.. it’s basically a glass ‘wall’ that’s about a third of the length of the tub. It was so clean and really made the boring tub/shower much more modern!
