Buena Vista House BathroomContemporary Bathroom, San Francisco
This new hillside home above the Castro in San Francisco was designed to act as a filter from the peaceful tress-lined street through to the panoramic view of the city and bay. A carefully developed rhythm structures the building, directing the visitor through the home with mounting drama. Each room opens to the next, then out through custom mahogany doors to the decks and view. Custom vine-like wrought-iron railing provide a counterpoint to the pure geometry of the rooms.

What Houzz contributors are saying:
Waterless urinals may also be a solution for busy bathrooms and big families — with mostly boys, of course. A wall-mounted unit can go for as little as $250. You’d still have to connect the drain to a properly vented drain stack, but you wouldn’t have to add a water supply. And waterless urinals are nearly silent, because they don’t flush. Plus, waterless urinals save thousands of gallons of water annually. They need to be maintained, however, and periodically cleaned. But even a bunch of boys could handle that.Revamp the rest of your bathroom fixtures with a new toilet, sink or bathtub
8. Fancy commodes. There’s a growing market for bidet-style toilets and urinals in residential bathrooms. Toilets arrive with accoutrements like heated seats (don’t forget you’ll need power for this), multiple settings for water (including the option for warm water) and seats that open and close for you. If you are seriously considering a urinal, look carefully at the water supply requirements and local plumbing codes. It may require a larger supply line than is currently in your bathroom.
