This shopping round-up request came straight from the boss lady. Ariel requested that I use my nimble shopping fingers to scrounge up some offbeat bathmats. You know… bathmats that are more than just pastel/tasteful/subdued/boring.
This is Offbeat Home's archive of bathrooms posts.
Like it or not, the lavatory is a place in which we all spend quite some time. Sometimes even long stretches. Sure, a magazine might help to pass the time, but what if you've read every article twice already? In our toilet room, there is still plenty to look at, because I've turned it into a miniature art gallery, using nothing but postcards and some picture frames.
Next week we shall be taking a tour of Homie Kat's punky artsy studio apartment in Seattle. But this week — Shark Week — I'm teasing you with the coolest bathroom my eyeballs have ever bared witness to. Behold the majesty of Kat's shark bathroom!
I have a super small master bathroom that doesn't allow for a large sink. But just because it's a small space, doesn't mean that I have to settle for a boring sink. I'm on the lookout for a small bathroom vanity (no larger than 24" wide) that worth me spending the dough. Check out all these awesomely tiny options that I found in the meantime — prices range from $$$$-$$, but no matter how many dollar signs they are, they all make quite the statements.
Bath salts are a fantastic addition to your bathroom. Not only do they make baths way more relaxing by helping your sore muscles, but they double as decor. And with these tips you can ensure that they are colour-coordinated to match your orange octopus bathroom? Or how about pink bath salts for a super pink bathroom? Or maybe you need them to be a pop of colour in a black bathroom? I will show you how!
Cary asked: "My new husband, and I rent a heritage house in Vancouver BC. Unfortunately, the bathroom has been subjected to a cost-conscious (rather than a design-conscious) refurbishment. It functions perfectly well, but it brings us down to have to go into such a ugly place each morning. Surely there's something we can do that goes beyond painting to make it a less utilitarian space."
Yes! There is! My easy answer is: get an awesome shower curtain and invest in matching accessories. Here are a few of my favorite shower curtains full of personality.
