Guest Room/Office Bathroom

Happy weekend!  I hope you’re enjoying yours whatever you’re up to!  We are spending some time with family and friends and enjoying one last little trip before summer winds down!  I can’t believe it’s already August.  We’ll be pulling out pumpkins before you know it.  I know that makes some of you cheer and others cry.  I’m a mix!  Not really ready to send my kids back to school, but a pumpkin spice candle is always a good thing. :)

I’m excited to share the rest of one of our bathrooms with you all today!  I shared a little peek of it in my last post but today is the full tour.  Don’t ask me why I haven’t shared this space on the blog before!  This bathroom is located between our guest bedroom and my husband’s office.

If you are sitting on the guest bed you’ll see these two doors.  Closet is on the left and the bathroom I’m sharing today is on the right of the table and TV. :)

So come on in!  Welcome to the bathroom.  Ha.  ;)  Honestly I had a really hard time designing this bathroom when we were building.  This bathroom and my son’s bathroom were the hardest rooms for me to design because I was trying to make them a little more masculine.  Feminine is much easier for me!  When we moved into this house my youngest son was only 3 years old.  The guest bedroom was his room for the first few years in our home because this room is close to our master bedroom.  He was still taking baths at the time so we designed this room with a tub in it for him.  His “older boy” current bathroom just has a shower.  You can see in the pic above that there is a pocket door on the left.  It opens to my husband’s office.  Since this was sort of my son’s and my husband’s bathroom I went with a bit more of a modern, masculine look.

I chose a solid white quartz countertop and we painted the cabinets grey.  (You can find all of my paint colors on a printable here.)  I like the diamond backsplash I picked out, but to be honest if I was designing this room again right now I probably would have just done something simple instead because it always looks too busy to me!

The little cabinet to the left of the sink opens to some adjustable shelves and I always keep new soap, a toothbrush and a razor there for guests.  Towels, shampoo/conditioner, toothpaste and other toiletries are in the cabinet drawers and below the sink.

You can see reflecting in the mirror in this picture there is a tall cabinet behind the sink/vanity.

I wanted guests to have plenty of counter space (especially thinking of my parents who use this room the most!).  When they come and stay for a week or two at a time I wanted them to be able to set all of their stuff out and have some extra bathroom storage so I took some room out of our guest bedroom closet that is on the other side of this and designed a built-in upper and lower cabinet with a counter in-between.

The top cabinet has a few shelves and there are two drawers on the bottom for extra things.  The large lower drawer?

One of my pull out laundry hampers of course!  If you don’t know how deep my love runs for these built-in laundry hampers you really don’t know me at all. ;)  Now guests have a nice place to keep their dirty clothes when they come to visit.  It’s the little things. :)

One of my favorite things about this bathroom (that you can’t tell from a picture) is how cool this tile is.  It feels like fabric!  Honestly so comfortable to walk on, so easy to keep clean and there is no slipping!  I wish I had a source for you but I don’t even remember what it’s called.  I just know I’ve loved it!

I used it on the walls and in the shower too.  This shower curtain was a fun find from the N sale that sold out in a flash and so was this rug, but I did find the CLEAN rug on-line here too if you love it as much as I do!

Isn’t it fun?

My cute RINSE towels are still in stock and on sale through the weekend!  Ok.. want to see my other favorite part of this bathroom?

Office/Guest Bathroom (Sunny Side Up)

In our previous house I never had a great place to store my girls’ bath toys and I knew I could come up with a smart solution.  I sketched these shelves behind the tub and asked my builder if we cold add them and wa-la!  Tub shelves for toys!  WHY does every bathroom not have something like this!?  So perfect for young kids.  If you don’t have the need for tub toys anymore it’s also a nice place to keep extra clean towels.

Office/Guest Bathroom (Sunny Side Up)

But our shelves are always full of toys.  There’s usually a large ship or Kole’s favorite foam pirate bath toys drying on the top shelf.  Even though his baths are few and far between now that he is older we still keep these toys here and he uses them sometimes in the swimming pool. :)

I hope you enjoyed the tour of our guest room/office bathroom!  I found some similar, fun shower curtains I’ll link below. Amazing how much a cute shower curtain, rug and towels can change the look and feel of a bathroom isn’t it!?

I can’t believe that the Nordstrom Anniversary sale ends after this weekend!  It was a good sale this year wasn’t it!?  The only thing I was a little disappointed in this year was the pjs!  The Moonlight Pajamas are the only pjs that I was excited about being on sale – love them! (summer version)  Some of my favorite things from the sale are still in stock like this T3 Hair Dryer (I’ve been using this for 2 weeks and seriously love it!)  I’m picky about my blowdryers.. I tried and returned the super crazy expensive Dyson and honesty like this T3 SO much better.  There are still some sizes left in my favorite light weight sweater from the sale and a few of the Barefoot Dream cardigans!  I didn’t have time to get a picture, but moms of girls this floral wrap dress is DARLING.  Both of my girls loved it so I bought one for each of them.  (They never like the same clothes so this was a rare find!)   This post has a lot of my favorites that are still in stock.

There are also a few other PB favorites of mine that are on sale this weekend too that I’ll link below!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!  And what’s left of your summer. :)

  1. I love this! Especially the toy shelves and laundry basket drawer! I agree with you that every bathroom needs toy shelves! I bought the pjs in navy based on your post! I hope I love them!

    1. Right!? It should be a requirement for all bathtubs. Ha. I’m so happy you like it Amy! Thank you! And YEA! I hope you love the pjs too! I think you will. :) Let me know what you think! xo

  2. Very cool looking bathroom. I love the laundry basket! (Heck that whole extra shelf/cabinet situation) and the shelves in the bathtub area. Just curious…there’s not a shower head in there, it’s just a bathtub? Brilliant idea regarding the shelves. I think you achieved your goal of making it look a little more masculine! Thanks for sharing, Erin. Happy Weekend. Less than 2 weeks and we are back in school. Sniff, sniff..

    1. Thank you so much Jeanne! It does have a shower head.. I just forgot to photograph it.. ha. :) I’m so happy you like it! TWO WEEKS! Where did summer go!? I’m so sad it’s almost over. I just keep reminding myself that pumpkin spice candles are in the future. Maybe that will help cheer you up too? :) Enjoy the rest of your time off! xo

  3. I love the tile. I know you can’t remember what it is or where it is purchased. Does it actually feel like fabric? How does it clean up? Does dirt get stuck in the grooves? Could it possibly be linen tile? I did a google search and that is what I came up with. Any information would be appreciated. I really enjoy your blog and your decorating tips. Thank you very much.

    1. Hi Sally! It feels like the fabric you would put on a wall for a wall treatment. It honestly cleans so easily and hides everything so it always looks clean even when it isn’t! I wish I had a name for you! If I can find any more info. on it I’ll definitely share it on my blog!

  4. Oh my gosh Erin! Those tub she shelves are genius!! Every tub should have that, let’s make a new standard! I wish you’d have built your house before me so I could use your brilliant ideas! I guess it will be my Grandma house that will get tub shelves.!

  5. The tile looks very much like Florida Tile Rhyme in color Stone Chamber. Has a slight texture but is still subtle.
