A Bath Remodel Just for Fun

by Kevin Gilday & Tom Gilday

The half bath -or powder room as we like to call it here in Washington DC- is probably the smallest room in the house, not much larger than a good-sized coat closet.  Just like the coat closet, the powder room plays an important (though somewhat unglamorous) role in the household.  They are there when you need them--and when you don't need them, you forget they are there.  That's exactly why Gilday interior designers encourage client to pull out the stops for a bath remodel and make them memorable.

In truth, these little baths are a lot of fun to remodel.  We recently did a fun half bath remodel at a house in Chevy Chase Maryland.  Here's what you see when you look up:

You really can't over design them.

These  bathrooms are so small that when you put in a grand mirror or chandelier, the dramatic irony makes you chuckle.

You and your interior designer can take it in any style direction that you want to try.  And you can take it all the way down to the smallest and most personal of details.

A powder room bath is not the place to practice under statement or restraint.  It is the place for bath remodeling extravagance.  Have fun.
