Guest Bathroom Remodeling: Where Personality Meets Practicality

A guest bath – whether a powder room or a full bathroom – is a necessity for your home, but it is also a space that allows you to set the tone for your home and expresses how you care for your guests. And because a guest bathroom gets less use than a master bath, it’s easier to keep it fresh and looking good.

If your guest bathroom is cramped or outdated, it’s the perfect time for a guest bathroom remodel. A guest bathroom remodeling project is the ideal way to spruce up your home, while adding your own personal stamp. The Wentworth design build team has designed and constructed numerous guest bathrooms in the Washington, DC area, ranging from simple upgrades to interior space reconfiguration to spa-like en-suite guest baths.

Guest Bathroom Remodeling: Powder Rooms

Powder rooms, or half baths, are a design treat! Because of their small size, powder room design can be simple and practical or embellished with aesthetic details you might not ordinarily use in your everyday bathroom. Many homeowners find that because the powder room is relatively small, they can afford to utilize quality materials. No matter how your powder room looks, it can make a statement for your family, friends and guests. From Italian marble, rustic stone floors and wood cabinetry to sleek, modern fixtures and interesting lighting, the powder room is often a place to express your design preferences without spending a fortune. Decorating choices in a half guest bathroom remodeling project can be as simple as a vivid paint color or as wild and unique as a pendant light fixture found on vacation!

Guest Bathroom Remodeling: Full Baths

A proper guest bath is a full bathroom adjacent to or en-suite with a guest bedroom, and though a guest bathroom doesn’t have to be large, it should be equipped – at minimum – with a toilet, sink and shower stall. A well-designed and well-equipped guest bath should have a designated place for storing towels, extra toiletries and toilet paper. And a good guest bathroom remodeling project should include a counter or shelf where visitors can place a shaving kit or a make-up bag.

Small features such as robe hooks, towel bars, and non-slip tile or floor mats are also thoughtful additions that are sure to be appreciated by your guests. In many ways, the amenities of your guest bathroom may not be that different than the ones in your favorite hotel room, only the bath in your home is a place to express your own personal style. Plus, it doesn’t cost your guests anything!
