I saved this room for last on my dream-home tour because our sweet little cottage has 2 bathrooms and one is in desperate need of a renovation.  Our master bathroom was remodeled in 2001, I can hardly believe it’s been nearly 10 years!  The guest bath has had cosmetic changes throughout the years but nothing major has been done.  Our renovation, when it happens, will be a simple face lift but we’ll take everything out that is currently within the space so the room should feel a little roomier than its miniscule 5’ x 8’ size once finished.

I might as well start with the largest dream bathroom in my files.  I realize this is a little over the top for most homeowners but wouldn’t it be wonderful?!

I want to renovate our guest bathroom using white tile, white sink, tub and toilet and chrome hardware.  I visualize a bathtub with wood paneling on the side, white Toto toilet and a white vanity with Kohler’s Ladena Undermount Lavatory (sink) and Kohler’s Double Handle faucet.  I’d like to put in Carrera tiles on the floor and white subway tile up the walls to the ceiling in the bath/shower area.  I want to install a new, QUIET fan and recessed lights.  I will most probably install the new Oval Framed  medicine cabinet from Pottery Barn and wall sconces on either side of the mirrored cabinet.

Pottery Barn’s Classic Single Sink Console (or something like it)

Kohler’s Ladena Undermount Sink

Kohler’s Double Handle Faucet

The wood panel on the front side of the bathtub is what I hope to duplicate in our guest bathroom.

I may try to incorporate a built in-the-wall shelf like this…a real space saver.


Pottery Barn’s Lattice Oval Medicine Cabinet (don’t you love this medicine cabinet…it looks like an antique mirror while serving as a medicine cabinet as well).

Pottery Barn wall sconce.  The subway tile behind the sconce is what I have in mind for the area above the tub.

You get the jest of what I’m wanting, right?


So come along to see some of the larger, more spectacular bathrooms I dream of, but know that our guest bathroom will be a simple cottage loo when remodeled.

For one of the  most spectacular bathrooms I’ve seen in a very long time visit for the love of a house HERE.

This picture of Susan Tully design has been in my file for quite awhile.

Love this toile and love the use of what appears to be a tiny space.

So what do you think?  Any suggestions, comments, ideas? …they would be most appreciated. 🙂
