My Small Guest Bathroom

Photographing a small bathroom is no easy feat, but I wanted to share the bathroom that is attached to one of my guest bedrooms.

It has a beachy vibe just like the bedroom that it’s attached to.

In fact, this bathroom, along with the attached bedroom, was inspired by the painting of the ocean that is hanging in there.

You may not be able to tell from my photo, but the artist’s use of color make it one of the most realistic looking ocean scenes that I’ve ever seen depicted in a painting.

This bathroom is so small that I wasn’t able to capture the entire room in one shot, even using my wide angle lens.

The sink is beside the doorway leading into the bedroom.  

Plates on the wall aren’t just for dining rooms and kitchens.  I used them in here to add a nice pop of color.

The towel bar hangs on the other side of the room and is sporting a mixed of layered towels.

A favorite trick of mine is to use one or two curtain panels in place of a standard shower curtain.  Buy a long enough curtain so that you can hang it high to make a statement.  If it’s a plain curtain like this one, I like to add a ribbon border using iron on tape.  

To protect the panel, I add a clear plastic shower curtain to a separate rod that is hung directly behind the one holding the drapery panel.

Use a drapery panel for a shower curtain.  Hang a clear plastic shower curtain on a separate rod on the backside to protect it while showering.  Use iron on tape to add a border of ribbon to the edge of the panel. :: worthingcourtblog.com

You can see from all of my photos that we added beadboard paneling to each of the walls.  It was cut to size for us at the home improvement store, which made it super easy to bring home and install.  A simple piece of trim tops off the raw edge of the paneling.

One last shot of the bathroom includes the area rug that I picked up at Target.  It helps to pull the whole look together.

  1. Very pretty, Suzy! And yes, I know how hard it is to photograph a small bathroom! The pics of me taking pics were way funnier than the “real” pics!

    Too cute! Question: Do you know where to find “long” clear shower curtain liners for this purpose? I can’t hang the shower curtain as high as I would like because the liner is too short.

  3. Beautiful! Love the shower curtain tip! Thanks for sharing at #inspirationmonday!
    Have a great week,

  4. I absolutely love the painting. What a wonderful piece of inspiration! You did a great job with the photography too. 😉
