PSA over :)
Let's talk about our guest bathroom! It's a small room but it has a great layout:
The bathroom is at the top of our stairs and looks like this upon entering:
We haven't done anything to the room aside from making our own pipe shower curtain rod:
Its looked like this since the week after we moved in...almost 18 months ago:
I keep going back and forth on whether or not to replace the big builder mirror. Currently I'm thinking of keeping it and framing it out. I have a fun frame idea in mind and am hoping it'll translate well into reality!
We'll definitely be replacing our current light fixture. I have a GORGEOUS one in mind but it's nearly $300 sooo I'll be looking for something cheaper haha
In a perfect, no budget world, I'd replace the mirror and then hire an electrician to remove the current light fixture and re-route the electricity so I could have two sconces added to either side of the new mirror. I'd also have my imaginary electrician add a ceiling light fixture so there'd be more light in the room. Maybe someday!
I'll be replacing the towel ring and painting the door:
Behind the door is a skinny little wall:
I had originally planned to hang some art here but then I thought about adding some recessed shelving since there's nothing but dead space behind the wall:
I'm envisioning it looking something along the lines of how Rambling Renovators' recessed shelving looks in their recently made over basement bathroom:

To the right of the skinny wall is the tub/shower area:
I plan on raising the height of the pipe shower curtain rod all the way to the ceiling and then buying a really long shower curtain and liner. Maybe I'll hang something above the tub surround too!
If you turn to your right once more, you can see the back of our guest bathroom AKA what you see when you walk up the stairs:
I plan on replacing the towel bar with towel hooks and getting a new toilet paper roll holder.
I have a plan of attack in mind but I'd love to hear your thoughts on how you'd makeover the room!
