Design Sponge sneak peek: "My husband and I completely renovated this bathroom. It was out dated and unusable. It has full white subway tile wainscoat that carries into a full subway tile shower. The vanity is custom built walnut with marble countertops. We were hoping to achieve a timeless look."
Carol installed a piece of custom-made furniture rather than a stock vanity when she outfitted this bath, turning what could have been a utilitarian room into a beautiful space. The sculptural tub becomes the focal point, and the handsome cabinetry provides dark contrast. (Photo: Coastal Living, Jean Allsopp)
Clear Out the Clutter There's a certain charm to a tiny, private bath, but there's also the aggravation of managing clutter. Give your small bath a fresh start by taking everything out until it looks like you just moved in. Then sort through everything, throwing away anything that you haven't used in the last year or has expired. Keep only what you really need and store it attractively. Add pretty bins or baskets to shelving to keep small things from getting lost.
