Space | Half Bath
What I Love | ceiling height and great natural light
What I Don’t Care For | too many things to itemize
What I Want To Do Next | paint, remove medicine cabinet, remove extra towel bar, etch or put privacy film on window, replace light fixture
It’s been over a month since I’ve shared a Where We Live post. I’ll be honest and admit that as much as I attempt to be, Superwoman I am not. Life gets in the way and priorities get shuffled. Now that the weather is becoming cooler, house projects have begun climbing to the top of the to-do list. Andy is thrilled, let me tell you. My interior design degree gets put to use and he becomes the guy that helps make my sometimes crazy plans reality.
With that being said, here’s a peek at our half bath. I’ll give you a second to take it all in. That’s because this room is so tiny a second is all that’s needed. I laughed at my blunder when talking about the girls’ bathroom and saying it was the smallest room in the house. HA. I can reach my arms out and touch both walls in the half bath and still have my elbows bent.
This is the view from the hallway that goes by the bathroom. You actually have to turn, take a step down and then a step up into the bathroom. Across from it are the stairs to the basement. Hello awesomeness that is living in a house that’s nearly 100 years old.
Here you get a better glimpse of the tight quarters. Barely enough room for the toilet and vanity – and that vanity is only 18″ wide.
The mirrored medicine cabinet with fingerprints and a door that won’t say shut? Keeping it real, my friends. Seriously though, who thought a medicine cabinet – not recessed, mind you – in the half bath was a great idea? I could write a novel on what the company did that flipped our house could have done to make things a bit better. Believe me, the medicine cabinet is a trivial offense.
We also are lucky enough to not one, but TWO towel bars in the half bath. Really?!
And of course, a window beside the toilet with no window covering in sight. That’s our neighbors back yard you spy through the glass. The driveway we share goes between our houses. Privacy in the half bath is non-existent.
We really are lucky to have high ceilings in our home. Which makes the ceiling fixture in this space comical. Small room, huge height and this teeny tiny, space saver or a light fixture. My guess is that budget played a key on this one.
