While guests may have previously had to share the same bathroom as the rest of the family, many homes now have extra bathrooms attached to guest bedrooms. Because these bathrooms don’t get a lot of day to day use, but need to look nice when guests do arrive, the designing and decorating of these rooms can be a little different than the rest of the bathrooms in the house. Below are some tips to create the best guest bathroom designs and experience.
Go for Wow Factor
Remember that your guest bathroom won’t be getting the day to day wear and tear that your other bathrooms will. So don’t be afraid to splash out and use some materials that you might otherwise be a little afraid to use in another setting, such as marble, limestone, metal or glass.
The guest bathroom is one of the places in your home where you can truly make a statement, since it’s viewed only by guests who come to stay, and not by people casually dropping by. So if you’ve always wanted a vessel sink or a bold tile pattern, but were too afraid to do it in the main areas of the home, the guest bathroom is the place to push your limits!
Add Extra Function
Take some steps to make the space functional for overnight and temporary guests. Instead of vanities and cabinets, invest in shelves you can fill with extra toiletries, shelves for storing additional towels, and niches in the shower where guests can store shampoo and soap in easy reach.
Include things like baskets, bath salts, and candles in your decorating scheme so that your guests feel welcome as well as pampered with your luxurious guest getaway.
