Great Bathroom Ideas

I am inspired by these bathrooms. Each has an idea that I would recommend incorporating if you are planning a renovation.

I think this mirrored vanity could really make a small space feel bigger.

I love the floating drawers above the toilet, great extra storage.

This is a fabulous idea…using doors from a vintage or antique cabinet on a built-in unit.

This off-center vanity helps you to use a small space wisely.

I love the shower boxes in this all white shower. The glass tile is very effective.

All glass showers open up small spaces…this is a great use of a small space.

This open old-fashioned double sink is a great way to allow two to use a small area. The peg board towel rack is clever too!

Using a large print or bold colored wallpaper in a small bathroom can give it pizzazz.

I love designing bathrooms. They are so important to a home. The key to a well designed bathroom is to use every inch of your space. Measure your space and full it up with function!

Budget Bathroom..Yes, it is Possible

How do you keep a bathroom remodel on budget?

  • Make good decisions and stick with them!
  • When you make a choice that fits with-in your budget, move on to the next item. (I have found the best choices are usually your first choices.)
  • What is your budget? This is your first step, do not get a contractor and then go with their budget, bring them your budget!
  • What is the style or look you are trying to achieve? Transitional, traditional…modern.
  • Have you done your research? Do you know what you need, and what these items cost?
  • Do you have a good contractor? Ask to see jobs they have done, if you have not worked with them.
  • Where are you shopping for items? Have you looked into discount options?

I have an $8k budget for a transitional style kids bathroom I am working on. I need two vanities, a sundry dresser, two medicine cabinets, two faucets, a whirlpool tub and shower/tub faucet.

This Celia Bedilia vanity is $600 with top and sink about $1000 (x 2)  www.celiabedilia.com

These Medicine cabinets are great 18×18 $50 (x2) www.overstock.com

This Kohler whirlpool tub is from Home Depot $980 www.homedepot.com

Sundry Dresser $399 www.potterybarn.com

Faucet $98 (x2) www.faucetdirect.com

Kohler $280

Toilet $280 www.faucetdirect.com

Fantastic Tile 10×48 gray tiles $650 for 64 square feet www.tilesdirect.net

Delta BT14496

Delta Faucet $116.00 www.faucetsdirect.com

This is adds up to roughly $4,800 so that leaves $3,200 for installation. I think it is possible, but now I need to get my subs in to give me their quotes.

I hope you enjoyed this post. If you have any design dilemmas, I can help! Write me with your questions and design issues, attach photos too! I will form a post around your question.
