When we purchased our first home earlier this year, there were some color choices that made me do a double-take. A dark orange bedroom. An ombre, sponged blue bedroom. A dark red kitchen and basement bathroom. I wanted to cover my eyes and make it stop!
For a small home, the dark colors felt too heavy. The dark red basement bathroom was cavernous. I was in need of a bathroom sanctuary! Here’s how we turned our dark red cave of a bathroom into a bright, airy sanctuary with a splash of color.
Why does it take longer to prep a paint project than it does to paint? It’s my least favorite part! After removing the switch plates, towel racks, and fixtures, I used blue painter’s tape to protect edges. Then I applied two coats of primer. Goodbye, red bathroom! It was already leagues brighter than before.
After two coats of primer, I applied two coats of gray paint. We used this warm shade of gray throughout much of our home. One coat may have been enough, but I applied a second coat for complete coverage. It’s like a breath of fresh air, isn’t it?
I let the paint dry overnight, then removed the painter’s tape. I hung up the towel racks, fixtures and switch plates. Then the real fun began: selecting decor! Clocks are such cool pieces of art. I selected a giant white clock for above the hand towels. Metal owls fit well with my rustic, industrial style. A quote on a wood sign spoke to my soul: “Be your own kind of beautiful.”
A neutral bathroom needs pops of color. Turquoise towels provided a fun, maybe even quirky flair. The white shower curtain kept things bright while the ruffles provided a sense of whimsy. Of course, a bathroom isn’t a sanctuary without Charmin Mega Roll.
Toilet paper is a critical component of any bathroom. Charmin Mega Roll lasts four times longer, so you’ll change the roll less frequently. (Can I get an AMEN?!) Charmin Ultra Soft Mega Roll is cushiony, soft and 75% more absorbent*. Charmin Ultra Strong Mega Roll cleans better* with fewer sheets*, and is four times stronger when wet than the leading bargain brand. Whether you’re a Charmin Ultra Soft or a Charmin Ultra Strong user, Mega Roll is the way to go! Pun intended. 😉
My new bathroom sanctuary is whimsical, quirky, bright, colorful, and stocked with Charmin Mega Roll. It’ll be the perfect retreat for my guests – and me! – this holiday. For those longer retreats to your bathroom sanctuary, check out the Charmin Enjoy the Go Bathroom Games App!
