Default Anyone remodel a small 1/2 bath lately?

I'm going to remodel our small 1/2 bathroom and I'm looking for ideas. I'm not the interior design type of guy. Anyone have a nice small bath similar to mine?

typical " do it yourself" bathroom . looks beautiful , but the plumbings all wrong . I recommend installing the fixtures on the floor , not on the wall . Flush that toilet you'll have a big mess

We put a vanity just like this one in our powder room, and every woman who sees it, tells us they love it. http://www.prielebathroomvanities.co...oor-glass-sink

We bought it at a Home Show at a nice discount.

Just finished a very basic renovation. Kept existing plumbing and electrical. Left "old" floor tile but everything else is new.

For that room....ditch the vanity and go with a pedestal sink to open up the space.

New tile and paint and you'd be amazed at how a little room like that can change. Lots of cool new mirrors to choose from too.

We did one of these in the fall, looked at the rest of the house that needed the same and then sold it!! I only wanted to do one!

I was thinking the same thing, it appears larger you can put in a paper holder if you care to.

Go with a "right height" toilet. Unless you are only 5 feet tall, you will thank me later.

We did a small full bath last year. I thought my wife did a good job with the design and such.

Here's one we did recently - I like the round mirror in the first pic and the vanity with the open bottom in the second pic. Bright, clean airy for small rooms make them look more open and spacious.

Thanks for the ideas guys. Big tile in a small room makes the room look smaller right?

I've never bought into that personally. Less tile grout joints = less busy in my opinion but that's just me.

Agree wholeheartedly. Big tile small room looks clean and modern. 1/8" joints MAX un sanded grout.

The house we are wrapping up right now has six full baths and one half bath. I'll post pics tomorrow or Monday, I don't have any "after" shots but its all done except for staging.

Soflah 3, I love that small shower design. Looks great.

before and after of half bath. Marble tile, wallpaper, pedestal sink. Had just put a new toilet in a couple months before, so removed and reinstalled it. Love these Toto toilets. I've replaced 10 toilets with Totos in the past few years.

As for tile size, the larger the tile, the fussier the install. Small tiles follow floor contours, important in an older home or where room size is changing/mismatched floors, etc. Large tiles require dead level substrate.

a pedestal sink will make a tight space feel bigger.
