I liked the tiles in the re do's very much. The black penny tile-fabulous and the white small ones going up in every angle-just wonderful and no doubt expensive. But I have some observations. I live in a 1936 smallish Tudor and was inspired to go measure my bathrooms. The main one is 9 X 5 and the secondary one is 7 X 3 and 1/2. Both are actually functional; the smaller one has only a small shower and the larger a tub/shower combo.They have the original 1930's black and white tile which has benefited in one case from the tile painters and in another from a lot of Oxyclean. Neither has the toilet by the bath or shower and it is placed also as far from each sink as possible. It is not hygienic to have the toilet cheek by jowl with either the bathing or washing areas even in a small bathroom. This is an old house and the old timers were so careful about so many things. Both toilets are also not straight line of sight but tucked at an angle to the door. If my toilet were so close to my tub I would feel the need to post a sign: " Please close lid before flushing. No aerosol effluvia in the bathtub please. " I'm not certain why building codes permit toilets to be positioned so close because I've read that the flush will spread droplets about 3 feet.

I don't think bathrooms need to be large. Families benefit from having at least 2 though.

Someone said that a 24 inch vanity could not fit in those bathrooms. They must mean depth ? My vanity is 4 feet by 21 inches in the 9X 5 bath. It is quite functional with 3 drawers and under sink storage. I don't want linens down by those pipes though and had a cabinet installed above the toilet. The tiny bathroom has a pedestal sink and shelf storage for towels.

Also just a question: Are there weight limits for those wall mount toilets ? I can think of folks who might be too heavy or are they exceptionally well engineered for weight ?

That vaniity IS from Rejuvenation and not an antique. It costs approximately $2300 and the drawer pulls can be customized, as with the faucet. Its made of teak so. It will withstand. Any moisture your bathroom throws at it. Very well made.

Toilets should not be the first thing you see thru the door. Think about how much nicer it is to see that vanity. So if your small bathroom is configured that way, be happy. Put the shower curtain up between toilet and tub if you find it offensive. Newer modern toilets of today are bathroom accessories and the llid should be down for it to be the most attractive.

I really like that you have showed ideas for normal sized bathrooms. Most people don't live in homes with giant bathrooms. These designs are realistic and helpful.
