What Houzz contributors are saying:
4. Luxurious TexturesA textured wallcovering is the perfect backdrop for the substantial marble countertop in this elegant bathroom by Krueger Architecture & Design. Takeaway: Don’t forget the P-trap, the plumbing underneath a sink. If it’s exposed, make sure to choose an attractive and coordinating finish for it.
Skip the vanity. This powder room is compact but luxe thanks to the marble countertop, textured Phillip Jeffries wallcovering and mix of silver and brass finishes. Because the homeowners used a built-in counter and skipped the vanity underneath, the sink area has an open feel that makes the room feel more expansive. Just make sure you have a good spot for stashing the extra toilet paper before you sacrifice storage. Note: When you skip the vanity, the P-trap will be exposed, so you need to carefully consider what it looks like — imagine how badly an exposed PVC pipe would have mucked up this vignette. Instead, the elegant brass P-trap plays off the faucet and is a design asset.
