I took you on a tour of the first floor of our townhouse in this post a week or so ago, and it’s time to take a tour of the upstairs. Our home has three bedrooms and two baths upstairs, as well as a laundry closet in the hallway – hooray for not having to climb stairs to do wash! Without further adieu, let’s start the second part of this tour, shall we?
The stairs to the second floor are across from our dining room sort of in the middle of our home. I love having a split staircase with an oversized window to brighten up the upstairs hallway. Isn’t it a pretty window? It’s one of the things I loved about this house when we first looked at it.
When you reach the top of the stairs our master bedroom is directly on your right, the office is on the left, and the laundry closet, guest bedroom and guest bathroom are straight ahead down the hall. The washer and dryer are hidden behind bi-fold doors. I think the laundry closet has a lot more potential to be super functional and even kind of cute, so that’s a project I want to tackle this winter. I’m thinking some fun paint could really make this small space pop.
Just before the laundry closet at the top of the stairs is our master bedroom. A walk-in closet and a master bath round out our master suite. It’s a really great space for us and we think it’s pretty large for a townhouse.
The door to our master bathroom is just beyond the TV across from my vanity.
Across the hall from our master bedroom is our office. This space sort of doubles as Mike’s ‘man cave,’ too. We have some of his favorite knick knacks, bobble heads and awards/plaques as well as our college degrees on display in here. Mike uses the big desktop Mac to edit his vlogs and I hang out on the wingback chair when I’m working on the blog. There’s a huge window in this room so it’s really bright in there during the day. We love it!
Our guest bedroom is just down the hall from the office. We’re excited to finally have a place for guests to come and stay the night, and it’s already gotten quite a bit of use! I think it’s a pretty cozy space if I do say so myself.
The last room in our upstairs is the guest bathroom. This is one of the only rooms in the house with colorful walls – they’re mint green. I paired the soft mint green walls with tangerine to help make the white tile and grey tub and toilet pop. We used the art in our bedroom in the old apartment and it happened to work perfectly in here. Score!
There you have it – our upstairs! We have a lot left to do up here, like upgrading the bathrooms and finishing some painting projects, and I’ll be sure to capture any upgrades on the blog as we go.
