Bathroom Pitfalls 101

Bathroom designs that we LOVE but don’t know how people live with...

We love wood countertops. They look beautiful and have a rustic elegance but would most certainly warp or suffer water damage over time. We also love the vessel sink and exposed chrome decorative trap, and the wood plank floors.

Love the self-rimming stainless steel sink for a cool bachelor pad, although he might resent mopping up the water around the basin with a wall-mounted faucet mounted that high!

Love the stone wall cladding in the bathroom for a sophisticated clean look, but we don’t recommend a rainhead shower head as your only showerhead, as you can't vary the water flow strength and you end up with more of a drizzle versus a waterfall. Look for pre-fab solutions this vanity at Pottery Barn or Restoration Hardware.

Love the tiny wall-mounted lav solution for a tight space – especially with the quirky mirror. Overall a well done design, although we are not sure how you control water temperature with a single criss-cross valve.

Love the under-mounted lavatories with space for decorative towel folding AND storage. This is a very well executed vanity design!

Love the vessel sinks with the side-mounted widespread faucet. Great floating cabinet with ample storage space and cool peek-a-boo vanity mirrors.

Love the beautiful chrome legs and tile work, but not extremely functional for a bathroom lavatory. Who doesn't have bathroom clutter to hide?!

And lastly, love the integral lav (basin carved right out of the counter slab) with a shelf for towels. Not much storage, but would be great for a powder room or a rarely used guest room.
