Home design blogger Miranda Wulfekoetter of Kansas City, Missouri, hated her bathroom.
“It had ugly, almond flooring, chrome fixtures and a '90s tri-fold mirror that took up too much space,” she told TODAY Home.
So, she decided to give it a glam makeover — totaling just $275 out of pocket — and now it feels like a completely different room in the best way possible.
“When I tire of mothering and need five minutes of privacy, taking a shower in this space is much more soothing than it was when all I saw was a ‘project space.’”
The new room’s design was partly inspired by three framed leaves she already had on hand for wall art. From there, her vision became a cross between a funky boutique hotel and a lush green getaway in the Amazon.
“Two places I haven’t been and, unfortunately, have no plans to travel to soon,” she said. “All the more reason to create them in my own home!”
Wulfekoetter gave the walls a bold refresh using bright green paint. She also gave the cabinets a dramatic makeover with black paint, and painted the towel bars and shower fixtures to match (see exactly how she did it here).
For the floor, she covered the old laminate with vinyl tile stickers. The gold pattern gives the room a glam and funky feel. “It just spoke to me and fit into my vision for the space,” she said.
And that ugly, tri-fold mirror? It got replaced with an antique that she found for $10.
“I think I love this bathroom more each day,” she said. “When I walk in, it elevates my mood.”
