A Nice Hot Bath Will Fix Just About Anything

Or that’s what they say.

What happens if you really don’t like your bathroom?  I’m pretty sure a hot bath can’t fix that – believe me I’ve tried (well, I’ll be honest – I tried hot showers, but I’m sure the saying applies).  It’s not that my bathroom is bad per se, it’s just not beautiful, gorgeous, awe-inspiring, and divine like these:

Here’s my bathroom as it stands now:

My bathroom – storage is an issue

See it’s not too bad – unfortunately I don’t like it. I wouldn’t go a far as to say I hate it, but I feel a good bit of dislike for it.

So what’s a girl to do? Unfortunately I don’t have the budget for a complete reno, so I’m going to have to get creative.

On my bathroom hit-list:

  • The tiles. I don’t like them. Okay, I just don’t like the blue ones, the white ones don’t bother me so much. It’s unfortunate that the blue ones are so visible.
  • Storage issues – there isn’t much. And what’s with the blue and white plastic towel rails? Those will be first to go.
  • The faucet – I challenge anyone to find a cheaper one.
  • The lighting – Charitably I’d say the fixture  is art-deco style which fits with the buildings age.  Honestly, I’d say it was bad 90′s.

So, what kind of bathroom makeover can one get on a very limited budget? I guess I’ll have to see what I can come up with over the next little while.
