Sensible Design for Your Holiday Guest Bath

Sensible Design for Your Holiday Guest Bath

Guest bathrooms are afterthoughts in your home. They should not be, if you appreciate the people visiting you! As you are likely to have overnight guests during the holiday season, I’m happy to share these tips out of a regular host guest and –.

Atmosphere Interior Design Inc..

A guest bath should be as your master bath. The handsome sconces flanking the mirror include illumination and tremendous style.

Maydan Architects, Inc..

As this one does, guest bathrooms should seem fantastic. They should also be highly usable, if just for a weekend visit. This contemporary vanity provides ample counter space for a visitor’s kit bag, an easy-to-operate faucet and even access for a wheelchair user.

Kipnis Architecture + Planning

A barrier-free shower is great for a guest bath — and great-looking, too. A shower bench is also excellent for these spaces, in addition to towel hooks or pub within reach of the doorway. (In case your guests have kids, give access to a bathtub elsewhere in your home.)

Greene Designs LLC

A hand-held showerhead is excellent for any bathroom, including your guest bath. Consider one using a massage feature for a pampering element for your visitors that are valued.


Odin for Brizo by Jason Wu – $799

If your guest bath is going to be shared by numerous users, you may wish to consider a mostly hands-free faucet. Contrary to the public restroom variety, versions designed for home usage allow the temperature to vary. This model Spring 2012 coming has tap technology. No cream with this beauty! And fewer cold germs, too.


Hotel Collection Bath Towels, Macy’s – $12

Do not skimp on guest bath towels. Quality options can wash better, last longer and feel much nicer against the consumer’s skin. Should you like them enough to have them remain over, treat them to yummy towels!

Pottery Barn

Elise Floor Mirror, Pottery Barn – $99

Be sure your guest bath (or adjoining guest room) includes a full size mirror. Your guests wish to check their hems, too. If you don’t have floor or wall space for a beauty such as this one, consider hanging a mirror on the back of the bathroom door instead.

Restoration Hardware

Classic Connect, Restoration Hardware – $35

Insert a double hook or two single hooks for your guests’ convenience. Pick a finish and style that contrasts with your other bath finishes. Should you lack wall space, consider installing your pins or hook on the back of the bathroom door. Just select a place that won’t get easily bumped.

Pottery Barn

Plaza Robe, Pottery Barn – $99

OK, so I like to spoil my own guests. A set of robes will cause them to feel as though they’re in a hotel. (Only indulge them if you want repeat visits!) And don’t forget the slippers.


Martha Stewart Collection “Trousseau” Bath Accessories, Macy’s – $12.99

Add another tumbler for a second guest when you choose accessories for your guest bath. I also suggest purchasing tumblers that are dishwasher-friendly.
