Guest Bathrooms: Best Remodel Ideas for a Guest Bathroom

  • Consider who will be using your guest bathroom the most. If it happens to be close to a guest bedroom and therefore often accommodates more than one guest at a time, consider adding another sink for convenience and efficiency.

  • Matching the style of your guest bath to the rest of your home is an elegant way to make valuable updates. Here, installing wallpaper creates warmth and softness in a bathroom. A vintage chest of drawers is a creative use of space and is a lovely place to store towels and bath supplies.

  • Using a color palette similar to what one would find in an upscale, luxury spa creates a serene retreat for any guest. If you have the room, consider installing a new bathtub with spa-like features and add guest robes as well as very fluffy towels. Warning: your guest might never leave!

  • Updating your lighting and mirrors is a sophisticated and economic way to spruce up your guest bathroom. Mirrors can visually open up a small space and can add some glamour and glitz. Consider backlighting the mirrors for a more dramatic effect or maybe even a dimmer switch to allow for a little mood lighting.

  • Consider installing modern fixtures such as new faucets or shower and bath accessories. Providing a small wooden tray with a plant, candle and room for your guest’s cup of tea or coffee will make your guest feel relaxed and like they’ve accidentally wandered in to the wrong home!

  • Thinking of trying a new color but you’re not sure? Smaller spaces like the guest bath are perfect spaces to experiment with bright, bold colors or accents.

  • Even just an update to a guest shower can make all the difference. Update the hardware and tile for a gorgeous new look and if there’s room, add a small place to sit and relax.

You know the old saying about guests….

Guest bathrooms are tricky! You want it to be nice enough that you almost feel like showing it off when people come over, but not so nice that your guests end up staying a little longer than they should. Ah, the dilemma. A bathroom remodel is a relatively quick and easy way to increase your home’s value.  According to the Remodeling 2014 Cost vs. Value report, a mid-range bathroom remodel can cost around $16,000.00 (a little less for a small guest bathroom) and yet you can recoup as much as 75% of the remodel costs during resale!

The guest bathroom is a fantastic way to experiment with bold, new colors or it can be a great way to show off your decorating skills and prove to everyone you know that the hours and hours spent watching HGTV paid off! There are many different ways to turn a small guest bath in to a fun space that you and your guests will love. We had one client who snagged an old sink from a gas station that was being torn down and wanted help installing it in a guest bath. It completely changed the look and added a little something special. Found an old claw bathtub? Let us help you create a beautiful private bath that will also add value to your home. Creative mirror and lighting décor, rustic accents – the possibilities are endless! Contact Trusted Home Contractors and let us walk you through the process and show you just how easy it can be!
