    Default Bathroom ideas

    This is our bathroom. It's a bit bland which I can live with but do you think I should put up some sort of window covering (eg curtain, blind etc)? If so what would you recommend? I don't want venetian blinds as they just gather dust. The tiles on the floor are a dark grey, the walls are off white and the trims are gloss white. We did the rennos ourselves a few years ago but I've always felt it's missing something.

    I've always loved white shutters in bathrooms.

    I like bathrooms to be as light as possible so I'd leave the window as is, especially as it looks like you have a shower curtain over a bath/shower combo (unless I'm looking at it wrong). A curtain on the window might be a bit much.

    Personally if you have the money for it I'd put in a screen and ditch the shower curtain to help open the room up a bit, then maybe add some colour on the wall or window.

    I wouldn't bother with dressing that window - it is high enough for privacy - and looks like it lets in a great amount of light.

    I'd also look at replacing the curtain with a screen

    It's a separate bath and shower. The bath is tidgy and if as had the money I would have had it ripped out as part of the reno as we rarely use it. It is still on the list to have a professional renno done but when we got a quote about 6/7 years ago it was $14k which we didn't have. We have since realised that we woudl want to move the toilet in there as well so it would cost more. The DIY renno we did cost about $1k which was new shower panels, special paint to cover the hideous swirls, tiles and the new vanity.

    I would do a plantation shutter, I just love them and it would dress that window really nicely

    You did well with a 1k budget!! I'll try to find pics of the bathroom renovation we did at our investment property. The original bathroom was horrendous!
