I am so excited to be participating in the Fall ‘22 ORC. If you’re not familiar with the One Room Challenge (ORC) it is a bi-annual community based design event where participants share the process of transforming a room over the course of 8 weeks. This will be my third time participating in the event. The first time I transformed the laundry room and the second time I did the nursery. Both of these times due to different reasons, I wasn’t able to complete it in time but I’m hoping third times the charm!
This Fall, I am going to makeover the bathroom in our tiny house. When I was pregnant/postpartum taking a shower was my “me time.” It was what I looked forward to every day. We are currently living in a travel trailer and the thing about rv life is that you have to be very cautious on your water usage. Also, this is the bathroom that guest tend to use when they are visiting us so it would be nice to have it be prettier!
Tiny Bathroom Before
The bathroom much like the house itself is in terrible shape. We bought the property mainly for the views and not the structure so we didn’t have the tiny house inspected. Since closing we have come across so many issues, which we are not surprised about. We are hoping to not discover any more weird things as we work on this project. We won’t know much until we start taking things out but I’m hoping it’s mainly just cosmetics!
As you can see it definitely needs a deep clean and some tough love.
Tiny Bathroom Plans
For this space I’m going for a European cottage/farmhouse style. Since we live out in the country I want our home to be a reflection of its surrounding. What I love about this style is that it combines the relaxed, at-home feel of the American farmhouse with the old-world feel of European elegance. It has a minimalistic approach that focuses on functionality and simplicity.
Due to electrical wiring and where the plumbing is located, we won’t be making any structural changes but I plan on removing the vanity, toilet, and shower surround. I’m hoping to DIY a custom vanity for the space, replace the toilet, and do floor-to-ceiling tile for the shower.
Check back in next week to see the mood board and look I’m going with. Until then, definitely go check out what all the other participants have planned for their rooms!
