I wrote a quick post this weekend about towel warmers, which I would say are a “luxury” component of a bathroom. And… I’ve had pretty bathrooms on my brain ever since. So I dug-up some pictures (or am I supposed to call them “images” now?).
3 Beautiful Bathrooms
Clean, Cool, Traditional
I found this bathroom inspiration at BHG.com, and it’s full of details I love.
Tile on the ceiling is nice and the angled pattern is a nice touch.
That brick-style tile pattern is called “running-bond“… lingo.
I love the way the wainscot goes so high up the wall.
Plenty of room in this retreat, or so it would seem!
I’m totally loving the built-in window seat with drawers in the base.
And I’m loving the glass doors too!
The trimwork around the windows is even more impressive. Very nicely done.
And the panels on the front of the tub…if anyone talks to Rhoda, tell her about this.
Simple, Colorful, Classy
Great Color – I really like this shade against white trim!
Cool fixtures and hardware – can make a simple bathroom pop!
And of course… I like the trimwork. Big base. Wrapped window!
Nice Floor – going against the grain using wood in the bath.
Bright and Comfortable
The shutters are the first thing I notice. I really love the way they did the window in four sections. You can open the top for light and keep the bottom closed for privacy.
Overall, this bathroom is just really put together well. Everything works! I like the linen rack and the rug.
Hang-On to Inspiring Photos!
As a remodeling contractor and designer, one of the most useful things a client could do to help me understand what made them tick, was to give me a folder full of pictures they loved. It really helped me to come up with a design that was “just perfect!”
Keeping a “dream file” for each room in your house will help you really develop a sense of exactly what you like and don’t like so that when the time comes, you’re not forced into making a split-second choice. And if you keep your eyes on the goal, the time when you just sit back and enjoy a warm bath in a new retreat will come. No doubt about it!
Want To Talk About It?
I’m always forgetting to answer questions in the comments. I’m sorry! It’s not because I don’t want to, just something about the way it works, the process of getting an email, logging into the blog, navigating to the comments…etc. Plus I don’t know if you ever remember to come back and look!
Facebook is working much better to facilitate a real discussion about remodeling. I would love to talk to you there about bathrooms or whatever else you want to talk about. So far this weekend, a couple of readers have gotten involved there and I’m excited about it. Come check it out, it’s fun!
And of course, comments rock too! Have a great week!
