All you’ve seen of our master bathroom is from the welcome to Sunny post. This lovely picture…
By master bathroom I mean, it’s the only full bathroom in our apartment and it’s well… not that great. It’s livable and fine, but not cute. at. all. and barley functional. The bathtub didn’t even have a stopper until a few days ago when our bathroom pipe broke and flooded our downstairs neighbors bathroom. We were told it was just a reaction to super old plumbing and nothing we did. #thankgoodnes The plumber rushed out, fixed everything and gave us a good ol’ bathtub stopper! That was an exciting upgrade in casa de Dorobek.
Let me show you around…
That was quick! No towel racks. Turquoise tile. Although, I really can’t complain about our apartment… minus the fact that our kitchen only has one drawer! The living is room is ginormous and the natural light and views are amazing! Compromise is what it’s all about. And I will take loads of natural light over towel racks and funky tile any day!
Living room views always make me feel better about some of the crusty things we live with in Sunny. Not so shabby…
Here’s the other side… I did do a super simple upgrade in the medicine cabinet. The apartment came with no towel racks or TP holders, and there is only one electrical outlet in the bathroom. So, only one of our tooth brushes can live in here. I moved myself to the half bathroom, it’s bigger anyway.
- Buy and install 2 towel racks
- Buy 2 pretty towels to give the wall a little color
- DIY the shower curtain (make it work with the tile and new towels)
- Do something with the bath mat (the brown one is from our old house)
- Something above the toilet. Storage, art?
It’s a rental so as much as I want to paint, remove and install things… I’m trying to be realistic. I want to DIY that mirror and install some clean white subway tiles in the bathroom. My boring, oh so logical brain helped me make a list that includes things that we can take with us to our next rental or leave here and not feel bad about. Do you have a tiny, rental bathroom? How do you solve the bathroom storage problem? Does your bathroom only have one outlet? Don’t you think that is strange? I’d love to hear…

Hi Jaime! Our guest bathroom does only have one outlet but it has two sinks? I think that's weird. Thankfully, our master has two. Though I did get my husband to install a double outlet on my side. Would that be an option? I'm not sure what the rules for renters are.
I actually really like the teal tile. I think you could do a lot with it!

Renting can be a real bummer when it comes to decorating. I tend to go with the removable 3M products and rigging up other temp fixes. However, my best friend goes all out and paints and mounts TVs and then just undoes everything (painting, spackling, sanding) when she moves. It's intense, but works for her and she always gets her deposits back. Oh and she's moved once a year, every year since we graduated college.

Hi Jamie! My rental bathroom is teeny tiny too (AND only has one outlet-who does that?!) Everything is super squished in there, although were were lucky enough to have one towel bar installed (and then used 3M hooks on the back of the door for the other towels) I found an old wooden cakestand at goodwill that I spraypainted and we use that on our tiny counter to organize bathroom products: http://justawhimsicalworld.blogspot.com/2011/01/sleek-storage.html
