The most telling room in any home is the bathroom. Whether it be a master, a full, a ¾ bathroom, or a powder room… the state of the water closet is like peering through a keyhole to the condition of the rest of the home. Is it outdated, dirty, or broken? Bathrooms should inspire a feeling of cleanliness and hospitality, not of unease. Take care of your home and its inhabitants by having a relaxing lavatory. Handyman Matters has identified a few bathroom ideas, to improve each powder room in your home.
- The Master Bathroom – Vanity
The biggest challenge for the master bathroom is organization. For a room designed for the daily routines of (typically) two people, storage can be hard to come by. For those of us with more beauty products than we know what to do with, there’s the bathroom vanity. In modern bathroom designs, the vanity can be tucked away, between sinks, in extra counter space, or it can stand out as a small table.
- The Full Bathroom – Free Standing Tub
A full bathroom is designated as having a shower, a tub, and a toilet. When you have a full bathroom you typically have a spacious room. What’s better in a large space than a statement piece? The latest design trend for the modern bathroom is the free standing tub. Whether it be Victorian inspired, contemporary, or more of the Jacuzzi vein – there’s a variety of kinds to help you bathe in style.
- The Powder Room – Wallpaper
The smallest bathroom is the powder room. When it comes to the ½ bath, the powder room has just a toilet and a sink. It may be small, but it is one of the most functional bathrooms in the home, most commonly serving the needs of your house guests. Although this room is compact it doesn’t have to be bland. The best way to add interest to a small bathroom is by installing printed wallpaper.
- The ¾ Bathroom – Tile
Just the essentials in this room: a shower and toilet. Smaller rooms with showers often fight the effects of humidity. For this room think water resistant, think tile. Unlike wood flooring and wallpaper, tile rarely warps or peels due to water damage. A bonus feature is that there are many graphic options for tile to add a little intrigue as well as functionality.
