When it comes to home remodeling, or updating your style, the guest bathroom is often placed on the backburner. It is what we like to call a “next weekend” project, as in, “we will get to the guest bathroom next weekend.” This translates in married lingo to “we probably won’t do anything to the guest bathroom.” As if working on the weekend wasn’t bad enough, working multiple weekends can make relaxation seem to be a mythical being.
But why? We understand that rooms that are frequented more often definitely should be first on your list, but what about the room that a guest is alone in. Alone with their thoughts… A place in your house that is a designated space for you friends and family. Now, we aren’t saying that you need to add heated tiles, bidet, towel warmer or pay for a bathroom attendant. Something as simple as matching rugs and an air freshener can sometimes do the trick! But why not take it one step further with a simple DIY addition, like our Add A Frame.
Of course we are going to recommend adding one of our frames, but don’t let the “subtle” plug discredit this post. Just because it comes from us doesn’t mean it isn’t true! However, if you don’t want to stop with the frame, some good advice would be to include a basket filled with the bathroom freebies you can get in a hotel, this is a pleasant surprise for the forgetful friend. Another addition would be fresh flowers, however, this can get pricey and they are in a rarely visited section of your home. A nice habit to form would be to pick up fresh flowers before you have visitors. Fresh flowers would probably fall on the top of our “How to Impress the In-Laws” list, which happens to be the shortest list ever written….
Back to the frame. You can completely change the look and feel (and opinion of you that your friends hold) with a quick addition of a bathroom mirror frame. Check out a recent guest bathroom below that was transformed by the simple addition of a frame.
This particular customer chose our Le Flore frame, which is one of our most striking styles. It really makes a statement, and we feel that it accents the features already in place in the example below excellently.
