A glass sliding door leads from the indoor bathroom out to this outdoor shower. A gorgeous, warm woodgrain wall supports a tall bronze, hooked shower head and matching handle. A wood bench is perfect for setting down a drink and storage bath products.
When families share bathrooms, soaps and toys for the little ones often end up scattered around. Using a slip-proof suction cup to adhere to any glass or tile wall, the stretchy, wide-mouthed Bath Storage from 3 Sprouts made from the same mildew resistant material used for wet suits keeps toys and bath products dry and within easy reach.
Down the hall, a door opens to this two-toned, transitional guest bathroom. An oversized mirror anchors the wall and makes the small space seem even larger, while cabinets on either end offer storage for extra towels and travel-sized products.
The secret to the Sharp's success? Storage. "Everything utilitarian; blow dryers, toothbrushes and products should be stored away," says Patrick of a streamlined ethos seen in the couple's guest room bath. "Let your lighting and fixtures be the star."
Despite its small stature, this guest bath has a ton of storage: a floating cupboard, medicine cabinet and a vanity with drawers offer plenty of room for towels and travel-sized products. Meanwhile, a quartz topper and white-painted wood paneling infuse the space with some history and charm.
This double, two-sided mirrored medicine cabinet is sleek and durable--perfect for a busy family on the go! It complements the simple design of this small bathroom that keeps clutter to a minimum. A small wood vanity contains ample storage space to store products and other bath paraphernalia.
Using gray grout with white subway tiles accentuates the tiles and provides contrast if your cabinets are white, says Minneapolis homeowner Patti Wagner, a senior product designer for Target. Plus, they easily hide food splatters, she says. David Heide Design Studio, a design company also in Minneapolis, won a 2016 National Kitchen + Bath Association Design Competition award for this kitchen.
Sleek and sophisticated, this custom vanity is stocked with storage options. Designer Tracy Black designed this elegant, oversized piece, which measures an eye-catching nine feet long and 25 inches deep. "A vanity is so much more practical and functional with deep drawers instead of just doors," she says. The roomy drawers and center cabinets easily accommodate bath and beauty products, hair-styling tools and more. The lower open shelf is a practical spot for storing towels or baskets and prevents the vanity from overpowering the room.
Planning a trip to Cashiers, North Carolina? This charming mountain town is home to an array of home design stores and one signature mountain resort, the Lodge at Chattooga Club that would make a wonderful berth during your mountain visit. Croquet is a huge pursuit at this gorgeous spot with just seven luxurious suites (think gas fireplace, marble bath, Molton Brown products, complimentary wine and snacks and a wonderfully plush, comfortable home-away-from-home feel) and the most spectacular views imaginable.
The raw, rambling third floor had one well-sized room, but the rest of the space was a jungle of trusses and HVAC ducts. The designers turned that space into a home office, wet bar, two bedrooms, a full bath and an elevator lobby. Here, the largest room was created into a home office. To create a focal point, the bottom section of the ornate fireplace (originally in the great room) was placed on a wall that is flanked by bookcases. The fireplace is not functional, but it creates a handsome backdrop behind the homeowner’s desk.
A traditional shower would bestow the bride-to-be with kitchen wares and gifts from the registry, but for this smaller, more intimate gathering, consider asking guests to bring gifts to pamper the bride, like a gift certificate to a spa, lingerie, bath and body products or even a pair of sunglasses to wear on her honeymoon. Another way to make the event more personal is to ask each guest to write the bride-to-be a letter for the bride to read on the night before her wedding. This is a time when brides will be grateful to have a collection of words of encouragement and comfort from her dearest friends.
