Welcome to My Tiny Bathroom.

Welcome to My Tiny Bathroom

When I moved to Brooklyn a little over three years ago, it was an all around upgrade with one exception: the bathroom. While my living space quadrupled (easy to do when you live in a 300 square foot studio!), I traded down in the bathroom department. Which wasn’t a big deal, but since writing about beauty products is such a huge part of my job, it’s definitely had its challenges, especially in the storage department.

I wanted to make it as pretty as possible. Wallpaper was a great way to do that. I used this wallpaper from my sister. Full disclosure, since I rent she had it specially printed for me onto removable wallpaper (this is a huge pain for to do and sadly an “only for my sister” sort of thing – SORRY. If you are looking for removable wallpaper, I highly recommend Chasing Paper!!!).

I also needed makeshift storage. There are things really helped with that. The first is my command shelves (we’ll talk about those below), the second is this “Lazy Susan” for the bathroom, and these under-the-sink drawers. The Lazy Susan AND the drawers both fit nicely under my sink. I also have this hyacinth basket (also have a bunch of these for the top shelf of my closet!) to hold washcloths and extra toilet paper, and this large hyacinth basket (I guess it’s meant to be a waste basket, haha) to hold bath towels and my blow dryer + curling iron.

This is working out really nicely. The water just evaporates underneath the mat.) // Beauty Lazy Susan // Command Shelves // Rectangular Basket

I could write an entire blog post about these Command ledges.

They really saved me, not having a medicine cabinet. Mine have been up for over 3 years now and they’ve never fallen down. I have 3 rows of the 21″ ledges (above) and then several of the 4″ ones in the shower area and a few other places.

(Note: I say in the shower area, as they’re not anywhere that gets wet – but they keep my products accessible.) DO NOT hang these anywhere that could get wet… but otherwise they’ll be fine. My bathroom walls are tile and the shelves stick really well to the tile. Just make sure that whatever you stick them onto is really really clean. And that you follow the instructions that come with them! I put them up myself and if I can, anyone can – trust me on that!

quiet town shower curtain

For a shower curtain, I again turned to my sister.

She knows all the best cool small businesses to shop and she introduced me to Quiet Town. I ordered this gorgeous shower curtain and these brass hooks. I’ve had both for a little over 3 years now and LOVE. To keep the shower curtain in good shape I also have this liner, which is the best shower liner I’ve ever used – it refuses to get mildew!

My shower curtain is sold out but if I were going to order a new one now, I would probably go for The Orient in sand. As it is a small space, a colorful shower curtain would just be too overpowering!

The planter was a gift and has no branding (I’m sorry!). But I will say that adding plants to your bathroom is a must – it keeps the air clean and also just lends a spa like vibe! The mirror is several (maybe 7?) years old (bought at Anthropologie), but this one is very similar!

The towel is from Dusen Dusen

  1. I love this, Grace! Thanks for the tips – your bathroom is super cute! I’ll be moving into a 300 sq ft apartment soon with my boyfriend, the fridge won’t even fit into the kitchen! ❤️✨

    Love the planter! What kind of plant do you have in there? I tried to keep a low-sunlight plant in my windowless bathroom, but the absolute lack of sun killed it anyway 🙁 do you take it out and let it get some sun from time to time?

      Hi Leigh! I am so sorry but I don’t remember what type of plant it is. I bought it a few years ago. But I specifically asked the guy at the plant store for a “bathroom friendly” plant that would be okay with low light. So no, I do not take it out! Too high maintenance for me!!!

    So cute! I’ve been wanting to add removable wallpaper to my bathroom as well but was concerned with how it would hold up due to steam from the shower and all. Have you noticed any issues??

    • grace at the stripe says 7.17.20

      Nope!!!! If I had I would absolutely not have recommended it. Mine has been up for nearly 3 years now and no issues. 🙂

    Such a great space you created out of that tiny bathroom! Did you paint the marble pink color on the wall or how did you do that? One thing I had to do when moving into my new apartment was getting the tile cleaned (it lined the walls so there was A LOT of tile)!

      Hey Mia!

      It’s wallpaper! I linked it and talked about it in the post. Not sure if I misunderstood your question!
