Bathroom Before & Afters

I ran across a slideshow of brilliant bathroom remodels. This Old House published their Reader Remodel Contest results from 2013. If you are planning a bathroom renovation, there are some great images to look through for ideas.

My personal favorites:

  • Clawfoot tubs, especially with a pop of colorful paint on the exterior (I've done this in a remodel before; the painting part is simple) 
  • Stained concrete counter top
  • A pretty beadboard bathtub alluding to the architectural style of the period during which the home was built
  • Use of a large double-fauceted sink where a double sink vanity would not fit--clever and stylish solution to a common problem
  • Floor-to-ceiling tower shelving that also serves to define the space between two sink areas or separating the toilet and vanity
One more concept that grabbed my attention was a renovation in Minneapolis that incorporated salvaged wood from downed trees in the area by a company called Wood from the Hood. I'm not aware of anything like that available in our region, but the idea is brilliant.
