We’re about ready to start actually buying a toilet, sink, and tiles for our first floor bathroom we recently gutted. Everything is so expensive so I figured I should start researching materials. I’m going try buying a few new pieces every couple weeks (or when I get paid).
But first you need to hear my dilemma about the first floor bathroom. Right now, the house is actually a two family. The first floor is it’s own apartment and the second and third is another. We are living on the top two floors while we renovate the bottom. Ever since we bought the house my boyfriend and I have had an ongoing fight weather to convert into a one family or keep it as two. My boyfriend’s idea was we would buy another house in a few years and keep this one as our rental income (update: didn’t happen, it’s becoming a single family). Great idea, but I love this house. It’s plenty of space if it’s converted to one house and I honestly don’t need anything fancier. That’s kinda the tip of the iceberg on the 2-family conversation.
So how fancy do I make the bathroom being that it could possibly be a rental bathroom? Do I just go basic? Or do I do what I really want? If we do decide to convert the house down the road I don’t want to renovate the bathroom all over again.
I picked out some basic white bathrooms as inspiration. White is totally classic and something that will last us for years. I can dress up the space with colorful wallpaper or paint if we do decide to convert the house. Let me know if you have any great bathroom links or inspirational shots. I have many more bathrooms and resources to share so stay tuned or click on “bathrooms” to see what I have already come up with.
