Wallpaper Fun


Taking wallpaper up walls and across the ceiling is one way to create old-fashioned warmth and atmosphere--especially when interesting angles are involved.



Think Light


When designing your bathroom remodeling, don't let lighting become an afterthought. It's important to include it into your design from the beginning and choose your fixtures with care.Here, halogen lighting helps turn a previously plain-Jane bath into something out of the ordinary. Smoked-glass inserts frame the mirror. Large linen napkins double as guest towels.



Zero-Clearance Bath Stash


When you need space in a tiny bath, even thin voids inside the wall add up to super storage. In this powder room, shallow boxes fitted with random-spaced shelves line stud spaces inside two adjoining walls.


Add some stock or custom doors and edge with stock millwork. Result: oodles of storage that didn't cost a single cubic inch of bath space.


Create Storage Niches


As attractive as pedestal sinks are, they can create a storage dilemma. Solve this problem by having storage niches built into the walls adjacent to the sink.


Small Bath Storage


When storage in a small bathroom is at a premium, finish a space between two wall studs and add a shelf or two.



Dress Up An Old Bath


You don't need to add new tile and fixtures to update an old bath. Here, the old tile is left in tact, but the sink and glass shelf (suspended on cables from the ceiling) are new. Cobalt blue glass bottles serve as decorative vases. Containers for bathroom essentials are medical jars.


Install a Towel Warmer


Nothing beats a toasty towel warmer for making you feel pampered after you bathe, yet all it takes is a tiny sliver of space. This slim-profile electric radiator fits neatly under a linen closet, within easy reach of the tub or the shower enclosure.


Small Bath, Big Style


For its size, this little guest bath packs in plenty of style. Natural variations in the limestonefloor tiles lend more interst than solid tiles, and their 12x12-inch scale visually expands the space. Tiling around the mirror echoes tub tiling, lending continuity to the stylish Italian look.
