Master Bathroom

My master bathroom has two sinks which is great so that my husband and I can brush our teeth at the same time.  The only problem is, we have no counter space.  And we lack a linen closet for our master bathroom.  This forced me to get creative with our space under our sink area.  It took lots of time and organization to figure out how to make it work-able and make everything fit.

I also bought a hook to put by the shower for towels so the floor doesn’t get wet.  And the toilet paper holder is wonderful to keep one more thing out of the cabinets.  I decided to go with dark brown in all of the bathrooms to match the marble sink/counter areas and the dark wood cabinets.

We also have a standing shower which is great-there is even a little seat inside of it.  I was able to buy a storage container for all of the shower soaps and hair products.  This helps keep us organized.  And the shower curtain is awesome with a built-in line and the curtain snaps right onto the shower rod-no hooks required!

Guest Bathroom

The guest bathroom in the hallway is a full bathroom with a tub.  It has the same shower curtain and rugs that they my husband had in Dallas, Texas.  It was our master bedroom set in Baltimore and our guest bedroom set in Rhode Island.  This is still our guest bedroom set.

I bought a new tissue box at Bed, Bath, and Beyond that was on clearance.  I also have the drawers and cabinets packed with all of our hotel soaps, lotions, shampoos, and conditioners.  I even have extra face wash and shaving kits for our guests!

Bed, Bath, and Beyond Helps Me Finish My Downstairs Half Bathroom

I am a crazy coupon lady when it comes to Bed, Bath, and Beyond.  You can save all the 20% coupons and use them on each item you buy at the store.

Bed, Bath, and Beyond has great bathroom decorations.  I got a bronze toilet bowl cleaner, tissue holder, soap dish, and step garbage can.  This helped finish my downstairs bath and keep the price down.

Saving the coupons always pays off at Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

Pro-tip: Get a step trash can for guest bathrooms with high traffic.  Your bathroom will always look neater because you won’t see tissues crumpled up in the garbage each time you walk in.

Half Bathroom Downstairs

IMG_2081Of course, it is essential in houses with two levels to have a bathroom on the lower level. Otherwise, you will be running up and down all day.  Our bathroom is located right when you walk in by the garage door.

The hard wood floors on our entire first floor go into the bathroom.  The counter top for the sink is cultured marble and the cabinets are dark wood like the kitchen cabinets.  The cabinet knobs match the kitchen as well.

It is small, but it is located in a great spot for the first floor.
