Hot on the heels of my porch makeover, I’m cracking on with re-decorating my small downstairs toilet. There’s nothing wrong with this room per se, but it’s just a bit meh and needs a personality injection. So I hope I’ve nailed the brief with my downstairs toilet decor plans.
Here’s the cloakroom decor as it is currently. The walls are a safe light grey shade and the sink unit which we had custom made is a laminate wood effect. We chose this to tie in with the floor. I’ve since fallen out of love with it as there’s too much wood going on.
When we first bought our house in 2013, the downstairs toilet didn’t exist. The space was a garage, which we converted into this cloakroom and a laundry room/utility, that connects to the kitchen. These rooms were of so much more value, practicality and necessity to us than garage space. Here it is at the building stage.
My plans include a single concrete effect shelf to replace the glass ones, with a cool Kate Moss print displayed below it.
In my mission to banish all the white ceilings in my home, I’ll also be having some fun with the fifth wall in this room. Sign up to my email list so you don’t miss the reveal and ceiling surprise!
The inspiration for the bathroom makeover came from this soap dispenser that I bought from H&M a while back. I’m painting the walls and ceiling a green teal shade (12 tester pots later!) and adding a splash of leopard print to the sink unit.
As you can see from my mood board below, a gorgeous brass tap will replace the current chrome one, and I’ll be styling the space with edgy new accessories, including a new toilet roll holder, towel rail and towels.
I’m excited to get started on the makeover in the next week or so. Follow me on Instagram to see the refresh step by step as it happens on my Instagram stories. You’ll also get lots of other behind the scenes interior inspiration and gossip here too!
