Need help for master bath and teens' bath - This pic is NOT our bathroom!

Lisa ResseguieFebruary 2, 2013
Wanting to update our small master bath (8' 7" x 5' 8")and our teenagers' small bathroom (7' 10" x 4' 11"). Want to keep the floors the same in both bathrooms. Need to re-tile both showers. Any suggestions? I want to replace the vanity in our boys' bathroom to add drawers for storing their toiletries. Right now they leave everything on the countertop. The vanity in the master bath works okay, except I would like to hide the electric toothbrush, electric razor, etc. We use these items every day, so they need to stay plugged in and easily accessible. We like the single sink. Do I need both vanities to match just to keep things consistent? What do you think of vanities in a rich red finish with light countertops? Backsplash ideas? Really appreciate ANY feedback!

This first picture is the cabinet finish I really like. NOT a picture of either of our existing bathrooms!

Here is the boys' bathroom (7' 10" x 4' 11"). Very similar to our master bath, but smaller.

Lisa, one of the issues you are having is storage. Right? That means your cabinets need to work better for you. To add more storage, you can add a unit above the toilet as well. On 1 side of the sink have drawers. These days the vanities are 34 1/2" tall. So you also gain more storage height wise. You can also use some pull outs which gives more storage.
Apart from that, can you get rid of your tub & just have a shower. You don't need 60" for a nice shower. With 48" you can get a spacious shower with a 12" seat in it. You can then add a tall cabinet if you need to add storage.

You should add some colourful tile or cool patterns in the boy's bathroom to make it youthful

Do you think I could do a vanity like this in my master bath? Or would it make the room look smaller?
