These days, do you ever notice that it seems that there is a blending of rooms? Sometimes I chuckle to myself [or out loud] that “all I need is…” And I could LIVE in that one room and sometimes that room is the bathroom! For the purposes of this post about interesting bathroom ideas, I’m also going to include powder rooms.

What are some interesting bathroom ideas that make it feel more like a living room, etc?

 

  • hardwood floors
  • real furniture, not just built-in pieces
  • cabinets for sinks made from real furniture
  • comfortable chairs, chaises and even sofas
  • big, gorgeous windows
  • fireplaces
  • drapes
  • beautiful mirrors with antique frames
  • beautiful non-bathroom-type lighting
  • storage in containers not typically used in bathrooms
  • antiques
  • tapestries
  • real rugs instead of bath mats
  • non-bath-type accessories
  • art [which needs its own post]

[Some of these I could not find the original source and therefore, they are uncredited.]
