Finishing Our Bathroom with IKEA!

New Showroom at IKEA
Anyone else love IKEA?!  Every time I go there I'm amazed with how cheap everything is!  So when we needed to finish our bathroom upstairs naturally IKEA is the place to check first.  Sure enough I found items that matched our bathroom and style with the total being $26!!

A few years ago we bought a crappy house and completely gutted it.  It's mostly done but the upstairs bathroom has remained unfinished.  We have a pitched roof so our bathroom is part of what used to be yucky attic space.  Now it's a bathroom for average height  Also you'll notice there is no door (lol) that will be the last detail. :)

Here are the items I got from IKEA for $26:
Towel Bar (the 2 bars swing out)
Toilet Paper Holder (toilet paper not included lol)
Towel Hanger
Shower Curtain

Here my daughter is helping with the installation.  The finished job looks so great!
It will be nice to have towels and toilet paper not randomly sitting on things.

Another thing I love about IKEA is that they not only have great contemporary items for average households but they have all kinds of options for tight spaces!
Or even if you don't have a small space necessarily but want space saving furniture/finishes, this is the place to shop!  It's motivating/inspiring to go and see all of their showrooms.  I always take lots of pictures to keep the motivation alive.
Nice to have this project done...on to the next one!

Thanks to SNAP and IKEA for providing a gift card so that I could finish my bathroom!  No other compensation was received.  All opinions are my own. Note: This post may contain a sponsored/affiliate/referral link. Thank you for supporting this site!

Looks great! I love Ikea too - they have lots of great stuff for small spaces. I have a $199 wardrobe from there that is the nicest closet I've ever owned.
