First up are the new fixtures. We replaced all the cheap, builder grade, fixtures with these beautiful. oil rubbed bronze pieces. What a difference that made. Now I want a granite sink but that’s for another post. Because this room is mainly used by my tween daughter it needed a little glam. I found this pewter framed mirror at Kirklands for $29.99!

Small corner bathtubs are the perfect answer for a small bathroom where space is at a premium. These small units might be built-in tubs or freestanding bathtubs. Many are deeper than traditional bathtubs, although they take up considerably less floor space. Since these are deeper, however, you can still get good corner soaking tubs. I can see why they are so trendy right now, they are simple yet stunning! I like that they are safe as well.
Here’s a wide shot so you can get a full understanding of the space. Can you believe we started out with flower wallpaper and a HUGE jetted tub? We’ve come a long way.
