kids bathroom // trullbrook // sarah sherman samuelI’ve got another bathroom design coming at you for the Trullbook Residence. This one is the upstairs guest bath or what we are calling the kids bath. In this room the layout will stay the same, but we will be gutting it and replacing all the finishes. The plan in here is to bring the decor into this decade (just wait till you see the before, it is pretty amazing!), make it a space that is kid friendly but will still appeal to all ages and not be outdated again too quickly. I chose a soft blush penny tile for the floor and white herringbone on the walls. A classic combo with a little pink twist. A minimal color palette of white, blush, and natural wood will create a clean modern look and the brass accents give it just the right amount of polish.

The plan is to use Ikea’s kitchen cabinets as the structure of the vanity, attach them to the wall, and then add the brass decorative legs to make it feel more like a piece of furniture. I’ll provide more info once it’s up… wish us luck!

kids-bathroom-beforeAnd how about this beauty of a bath? While the rest of the house was truly lacking in any personality I appreciate that they put some in here even if it does take me back to the days of “Saved by the Bell” or “Full House” or maybe “Who’s the Boss?”. I’m not sure which childhood tv show but I’m sure one of them had this going on. I could definitely see A.C. Slater primping in this room.

Next up is the powder bath!

  • I love the mix of large and small tiles it is a good way to add depth to a room! What types of home decor are you using in the bathroom? Vases with flowers, wall decor, or keeping it basic?

      Bathrooms have so much going on already with all the built in accessories, mirrors and faucets and toilet paper holders etc etc, I like to keep them pretty minimal outside of that. The less clutter on the counter the better in my book!

      Oops hit reply before I was finished… was going to say, But one piece of art over the toilet in this room might work. Maybe a wall hanging or a couple hanging planters! TBD. X

  • gorgeous!!! loving all the hardware picks.

  • Lovely! I’m really excited to see how the kitchen cabinet vanity turns out. Do you plan to use SEKTION base cabinets or wall cabinets?

    That sounds like a genius vanity idea! I was just reading a blog post by Yellow Brick Home on the solution they had to use because their IKEA bathroom vanity was actually sagging in the middle due to the weight of the counter top and the width. I can’t wait to hear how it works and see how it looks!
