Our powder room downstairs is a teeny tiny room off the kitchen with a sink, a toilet, and a small window. If we weren’t renting, I would love to wallpaper it like we did for the powder room in our Dallas house, our powder room on Nantucket, or the upstairs bathroom on Nantucket. Sadly I have a feeling our landlord wouldn’t be down with an oversized ginger jar motif sooo we’ve hung a few small pieces of art in there and called it a day. It’s perfectly adequate and inoffensive but I don’t love it nearly as much as, say, our foyer or our living room.
The one thing I’m really not wild about in our powder room is the vanity, which is pretty modern compared to the rest of the house and has a small exposed shelf that houses toilet paper and cleaning supplies. The thought recently occurred to me that I could have a sink skirt made to hide the mess and add a little more personality into this tiny space without making any semipermanent changes. I started down a rabbit hole in search of skirted sink inspiration and found a ton of examples I love that I wanted to share in case any of you find yourselves in a similar debacle!
I found this Etsy shop that sells custom sink skirts starting around $100 (I’m thinking something like this or this) and I’m thinking this could be a quick and inexpensive update since we still have another 15 months left on our lease! Would you ever do a skirted sink in your home? (Btw I think this could totally work in a rental apartment too!) And would you be interested in seeing a before and after if I go through with it?
P.S. Can you tell I’m on a major decorating kick right now? Would love to hear what interiors posts you guys want to see!
