Since the kitchen is always called the “heart of the home” what part of the anatomy would you call the bathroom? All I know is that both of those areas get a lot of traffic in everyday living. It’s been eleven years since we bought our house and it definitely needs a little refreshing—especially the bathroom. We’re not ready to do a full upgrade because of money, but I am doing some redecorating. I’ve been collecting inspiration. I loved the words on the Quilted Northern® Ultra “Soft and Strong” as a jumping off point.

Bathroom Makeover Idea

Thankfully, our bathroom fixtures are still in excellent condition. The porcelain fixtures and tile floor make a strong statement on their own and I’m still happy with them. I do want to paint though. I especially like the idea of soft teal on the walls and a light grey on the cabinetry. The rug I found carries a lot of coordinating color without being too intrusive. I’ll be able to pull out and change up the colors with towels to give the bathroom a slightly different look every time I do laundry. I like that. I get bored with everything being the same all the time.

I love the owl artwork. His expression amuses me and I like the apparent texture of the piece. It also plays up the grey I want on the cabinets.

One thing I won’t change is my brand loyalty. When I find a product I’m happy with, like Quilted Northern®, I am a long-term customer. They’ve updated their toilet paper pattern and packaging but fortunately they’ve maintained their quality—they’ve been making this product for over 100 years. The Quilted Northern® Ultra Soft and Strong has a unique construction that limits tissue ripping and separation—they call it Cleanstretch®.  That means it’s strong, but soft and flexible. It is sewer and septic safe—so it’s one of those necessities that is appreciated but designed to be forgotten!
