It’s Friday, and even though I took a couple weeks off, it’s time for another Weekly Round-up! This week we saw many collections of beautiful images, helpful tutorials, and interesting videos all across the web. But for some reason, the things that struck us most were in the “colors and DIY” categories. It’s just been one of those weeks. So, we’ve collected a few fine tutorials to help you get the bathroom design of your dreams!
Anything catch your eye in the last week? Anything catch your eye in the last three weeks? Let me know and we’ll retroactively write Round-Ups for all the time I missed. See? Time travel IS possible! And there’s always plenty of great stuff to blog about in the bathroom design and remodeling space.
So without further ado: these are the stories that really caught our attention this week. Full speed ahead, dear reader!
Fox news takes a break from reporting world events to bring us this look at 13 all-white bathroom designs. Normally I’d wonder what an article like this is doing on a site like that, but then again, they do offer some truly eye-catching examples of whitewashed washrooms. White bathrooms embody the “classic” idea of bathroom design because white connotes hygiene, cleanliness, relaxation, purity, reprieve. It’s the choice of the modern minimalist, with an eye for more “zen” than “zazzle,” and these great designs are beautiful examples of this popular aesthetic. Take a look, and get inspired!
Almost as a corollary to the Fox News article above, Decoist published a great post this week with plenty of lovely picture examples of beautiful blue rooms throughout the modern home. Blue is not a color people commonly think of for their bathroom but it can be extremely effective and soothing. The color is reminiscent of water and cleanliness, as well as the cool and calm that comes with a gentle bath (or a swim in the ocean, for you extra-imaginative types). These pictures are definitely worth a quick peek! Oh by the way, Decoist, did you like the title I gave your article? Pretty snappy huh? I write freelance if you’re interested.
This one comes from our very own Ashley. In this article, she breaks down the percentages of your budget you will need to allocate towards individual aspects of your bathroom remodeling process. She also cites average remodeling cost data, which was originally reported by the Queens Chronicle (cited in the article). Definitely worth a look if you are considering remodeling your bathroom, the budgetary figures can be very important to the success of your project!
Do you want a cool, rustic, antique look for your bathroom vanity… but you don’t want to buy a vintage-style cabinet? Well, even though I do represent an e-commerce store selling antique vanities and I’m almost certainly shooting myself in the foot here, I’m going to share this awesome guide with you! Brooke from “All Things Thrifty” takes us through the process of re-finishing wood furniture so it looks totally unique and totally antique! Beautiful pictures accompany the easy-to-follow instructions so you’ll have your own custom, weathered furniture in no time!
Keeping up the DIY theme, our last article for this week’s round-up features a really cool project for those of you with extra dressers lying around. Want to recycle and re-use that old furniture, rather than give it away? Consider re-purposing it by turning it into a totally unique and clever bathroom vanity!
So there you have it, another Weekly Round-Up for the books. Be sure to check in again next Friday and see what caught our attention! You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll be mildly entertained by beautiful pictures and jocular prose! See you next time!
