Bathroom Refresh with Better Homes and Gardens

Spring is in the air!  The last few days have been enjoyably milder, so I hope we keep moving in the warmer-weather direction.  As we’re making our way out of winter hibernation, Spring is the perfect time of year to give your home a fresh start.  Kind of an airing-out from the winter blues.

Better Homes and Gardens recently reached to me to share the news about their fabulous line of home décor products, available exclusively at Walmart.  To share details of their collaboration, they asked me if I wanted to be apart of their “Walmart Room Refresh” campaign.  Of course, I was thrilled and absolutely said YES!  Specifically, the space that was chosen for the refresh was the bathroom.  When couldn’t a bathroom use a freshin’ up?!  I was up for the challenge…

Both the kids bathroom and the master bathroom have had a DIY remodel within the past two years, but they’re used everyday, so of course a freshing up is always needed.  New bath towels, new hand towels, bathmats, candles, etc. – Yes, Yes, Yes!

The BHG collection at Walmart has a fabulous selection of so many needs for the home.  Decor includes bedding, sheets, wall decor, furniture, candles, and much more.  Specifically they have a huge range of bathroom necessities including towels, rugs, shower curtains, containers, towel bars, and anything you can think of that would be needed / used in a bathroom space.

For my challenge, I focused on the kids bathroom (and a bit of the master).  Don’t ask me how, but the bathroom of a 3 and 6 year old is NEVER CLEAN.  I hope I’m not the only parent of youngsters that has this problem.  I was thrilled to have the opportunity to replace all the old stuff.

As I scoured the aisles of the BHG section, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the merchandise and at the reasonable prices. It wasn’t difficult at all to find towels, decor, and accessories to compliment the bathroom setting.  In my local Walmart, there were a range of towel styles with price points from $5 – $8.  I thought that was fairly good.  Other items were also a decent cost.

I went on to gather a bunch of things that I needed and that I thought would enhance the space.

The color selection of towels was vast, but I chose a turquoise, fuschia, charcoal hue, along with white (you can’t go wrong with white). As for accessories, new cotton ball and Q-tip containers (non-glass which is perfect for the kids bath) and a new shower hanger were the first things that were a must for my revamp.  A few last items made my makeover list complete.

Here is the room before and after with all the fresh touches…

It’s amazing how a few simple updates can completely change a space.   The bathroom looks freshened up and ready for Spring.

Here are a few more details…

As I mentioned above, I also added a few new things to the master bathroom as well.  During the master bathroom reno, I added two pretty hanging brackets near the shower for the the bath towels.  They’re still there, but I find the towels don’t dry as well when hung on a hook rather than on a long towel bar.

My solution?  Towel bars on the back of the door!

There were a few in the BHG collection that looked great and were very affordable.  Those bad boys instantly made the cart.

And here they are in place…

Don’t doubt the back of the door.  It’s a great place for out of the way storage.  When the door is open, anyone entering and/or using the room would have no idea that there are towels there.  It is a solution that I’m VERY happy with.  And I’m in love with these new crisp white towels!

My bathrooms are ready for Spring.

For less than $100, I was able to revamp my bathrooms and completely change the look of the space.  Fresh towels alone are always a welcome addition in any bathroom and the Better Homes and Gardens Collection at Walmart is the perfect spot to replace the old with the new.  Next time you’re shopping at your local Walmart, check out the decor created by BHG.  I feel that they’ve created such a great following with their publications, that their collection is the perfect extension of their much-respected brand.

Do you have a dream of revamping your own home?  Then head over to the Room Refresh Sweepstakes to enter {click here}.

Have you started freshening up your home for Spring?  Have you purchased anything from the BHG collection?  If so, what was it?

em>Disclosure: I was chosen by Better Homes and Gardens to participate in the BHG Refresh Challenge.  I was provided with a Walmart gift card to purchase items for my project. No one told me what to create, what to buy, how to use the product, or what to write.  All opinions are 100% mine!

      Thanks so much Ashley! The shower curtain is actually a DIY project that I’ll be sharing soon. xo Jenna

    I love the shower curtain and the idea of the towel rack of the back. I am kinda of an organizational junkie for stuff like that. It is such a simple idea that I have to ask “Why didn’t I think of that?” Did you get the 1,2,3 rack at Walmart as well? That is adorable.

    • Jenna says

      Thanks Michelle. The shower curtain is actually something I recently made and will be sharing on the blog soon. The 1,2,3 shower rack is something from Walmart though and I love the taupe color – something different than the typical white and stainless.

  2. Tami White says

    I have a question about the towel bars. I have wanted to put some up-but do they keep your door from being able to stay open when the bathroom is not in use?

    • Jenna says

      Tami, the space from the edge of the door and the other wall is about 4″ and the towel bars only sit about about 2/2.5″, so there is no difficulty with the door staying open. Most rooms are set up with the same 4″ space, so you should be fine if you want to do this.

      Best,
      Jenna

  3. says

    Awesome refresh! I need that little fingertip towel holder on our bathroom sink area–we have no room for a towel hanger on the wall by the sink!
    Love all the BHG products at Walmart! Earlier this month we did a patio refresh with the BHG Outdoor line at Walmart! ;)

    My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from
    PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress
    on a variety of websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another
    platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can
    transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

    The towel racks on the back of the door are so stinking smart. It is a serious duh moment to the rest of us!

    • Jenna says

      Suzanne-You can attach them the same way you would to a wall. It should come with plates that you just screw into the back of the door.
      xo Jenna

  6. Jessica says

    Hi! I love the towels on the back of the door. Can you tell me what size towels you used (i.e. bath towel, hand towel, etc/)? Thanks!

  7. Andi says

    Are you bathroom doors solid or hollow? Most standard interior doors these days are hollow and won’t hold the weight of the rack and the towels.

  8. Trish says

    Love this and have tried to copycat your towel bar on the door idea. I am having issues with the bars remaining secure. Are your doors hollow core? We used anchors, but the hey are still coming loose with the weight of towels. Any suggestions? Hubby is not too happy!!

    • Jenna says

      My doors are hollow core doors. I would try anchors that will open up to a Y when put through the door. That should secure the plate for the towel bar better. Good Luck!

    • Jenna says

      Because of the moulding around the door, there is about 4″ from the back of the door to the wall (which is typical in most homes) and the rods only protrude about 2″, leaving plenty of room so they don’t hit the wall.

  9. Stacy Hall says

    Love these ideas!! Have been trying to talk my husband into the back of door towel rack. The problem is this: he says the doors are hollow and there isn’t any thing to anchor the rods to. What kind of door did you have? Any thoughts on this?
