Kohler Shower Set

I’ve been looking to add a shower to a half bath in my home and there are some pretty ridiculous options out there. Shower walls, huge rain shower heads, they almost look like bad props from a 50’s sci-fi film. It was actually sort of time consuming to locate some simple fixtures but Kohler has some nicely designed ones.

Showerhead, $186.20.

Valve Trim, $147.00.

Valve, $175.85.

Shower Arm, $22.75.

Vieques Tub

Patricia Urquiola’s Vieques Tub has me wanting to replace my builder’s grade bathtub pronto.

Steel tub, with white finish on the inside and dark grey finish on the outside, can be complemented by a teak shelf and backrest. A contemporary restyling of the old-fashioned bath tub, for a decidedly unconventional environment. cm 170 x 72 x 60h – 66″7/8 x 28″3/8 x 23″5/8h

Open shower

I’m trying to figure out how add a shower to a narrow half bath by taking over a closet to get some extra room. Unfortunately there’s not a lot of room to take any more width, so there’s not really a way to add a shower door or other major division.

This small bath separates the lavatory from the shower with a simple step down, but keeps the flooring and wall tiled with the same glass mosaic to give the feeling of a larger space instead of smaller fractured spaces. The drain in the floor and simple shower head doesn’t take a lot of space and because there’s not a door, the space feels more open.

Also, the little perch for shampoo and soap is not obtrusive into the space, yet perfect for the necessities.

Spritz Collection from Restoration Hardware

When faced with redoing a bath, you can opt to do it in one fell swoop, with coordinated fixtures, or you can try to do it as your budget allows, piece by piece, hoping to achieve a cohesive look. If you’re in the first category, you may be interested to know that the Spritz Collection from Restoration Hardware includes everything from matching sink and bath faucets, to towel bars and soap holders. I don’t recommend going too overboard with the lighting and accessories though.

Shown: matching wall mounted sink faucet ($565) and bath faucet ($669)

Discount Shower Enclosure

I’ve been looking at the possibility of turning a large laundry room into a second bath, which means basically starting from scratch when it comes to all the fixtures. As you know, it can add up really quickly and the next thing you know, you’ve spent $15,000. One way to reduce costs is by searching at discount plumbing supply stores, as long as you have time to search.

Here’s a great shower entry that’s 1/3 the cost of what I’ve seen at other design stores. It was listed at $2,500 and now it’s only $799!

Planhaus bath

It’s refreshing to see a beautiful bath space that doesn’t require tiles everywhere. The nice simple wooden sink (although I think I would worry too much about the upkeep) and the horizontal-mount mirror and the wall-mount faucet brings it all together. It’s perfect how the alignment is slightly askew.

To create this look in your own bath remodel, you can get the faucet for under $300 here. The mirror is pretty much a no-brainer. Start at Ikea and work your way up as your budget allows. The sink is more difficult to locate but since I have a problem with the idea of wood, I would probably use something like the Omvivo washplane or the erosion sink, which can be custom made to any length.
