Shared Bathroom Design For Under $100


          It's time for a brand new $100 Room Challenge! 
          If you're new to this challenge, welcome! Erin, author at Lemons, Lavender and Laundry is the mastermind behind the brilliant idea to update a room in your home with a maximum budget of $100. I know I become overwhelmed by big projects, especially when I live in a big house seemingly full of them. This is a great way to focus on one room and stick to a budget! My first $100 Room Challenge started here, and now I'm back for another!



          I decided to focus on yet another bathroom in need of attention. This bathroom is shared by my daughters. Let me just get this off my chest: the term "Jack -n- Jill bathroom" makes me crazy. I don't like it, but that's what we have here, and I will refer to it as a shared bathroom instead, for the sake of my own sanity. I am easily annoyed by common words and phrases. My list of pet peeves is a long one. Actually, the term "pet peeve" makes me crazy. See what I mean? Moving on...


The Before

          Natalie and Ella are three years apart, and they may as well be 15 years apart. Aside from age, their personalities are like night and day - each wonderful in her own way. I won't say which is night and which is day, but trust me, they have very different temperaments. Nat's room is light turquoise, and will be painted a dark teal next month. Ella's room is a light, springy green. While I painted their rooms when we moved in 2+ years ago, I didn't paint their individual sink areas or the shared space with shower and toilet, so you will notice a pink room and a baby blue room in the before pics. Those colors came with the house and I neglected to change them.

  The Design

          This plan will finally bring together their individual spaces with the shared bathroom, while keeping their individual styles intact. The challenge was agreeing on wall color and decor that works with dark teal on one side and happy green on the other side. We agreed on light, neutral gray. I hope to do something interesting with the beige floor tile, budget permitting. Open shelves will be installed above the toilet for towels and other necessities. The towel bar will be replaced with a long set of hooks for towels. Beachy art from our Florida vacation will go above the towel hooks. The cabinets will be painted dark charcoal gray, and the builder grade mirrors will get some pretty frames. The design is a best case scenario. I don't know if I will have the guts to attempt the floor treatment I have in mind.

  4. You are in a predicament, trying to please not one, but TWO girls! That is a tall order, but I am sure the end result will be lovely! Good luck, and you can do that floor treatment, I just know it!

    1. I'm so glad to hear that! The girls had their hearts set on a similar curtain that cost $50! I couldn't justify blowing half the budget on a shower curtain when there are more affordable options that are just as cute.
