When most people think about their dream bathroom…’tiny’ is not exactly the first word that comes to mind. Our bathroom officially measures a solid 5 by 5 sq.ft.
Yup. That’s it.
It is definitely, by any definition, a tiny bathroom. And it gets the job done. Overall it hasn’t been an issue at all, our work schedules are a bit different and we’ve shared a bathroom before so we’re good on that front. What we didn’t love was the ugly cheap fixtures and brown everything. Let’s just take a moment to pause and reflect on the before….
The original sink was pretty large and took up way more space than needed. We opted for this sleeker, square Ikea pedestal sink with bottom cabinet. It gives us a bit of space on the side to hang hand towels out of the way and store all our toiletries underneath.
We also removed all the clunky hardware from the wall and door.
On the ‘other side’ of the bathroom…aka when you stand in the same spot and turn around, we have the shower, a part of our closet and the sliding door. We opted for a dark grey door to break up the white and gold knobs. (which I need to replace because I have come to find that spray-painted things are not immune to wet hands)
Our trailer came with all the standard factory RV features and fittings. Since we were on a tight timeframe and budget we couldn’t really re-arrange anything or replace the shower. But we were able to replace the standard plastic toilet with a standard height porcelain toilet. I’d HIGHLY recommend adding this into your trailer remodel budget.
I couldn’t find a before picture of our shower, but you can take my word that it was scary. Beige-y and just blah. The factory shower head was so small and sad. It just did not get the job done. This was a super easy fix. We swapped it out for this larger chrome shower head and raised up the holder so we can shower more comfortably. I actually love the skylight in the shower. After morning workouts its so nice to step in and get some natural light straight away. I also spray-painted the entire plastic interior with some outdoor, water-proof white to freshen it all up. There were also hideous beige knobs so I found some $10 chrome ones at home depot that matched the shower head.
