Powder room - traditional powder room idea in Burlington with a wall-mount sink

Snug yet elegant powder roomTraditional Powder Room, Burlington

The high natural light behind the toilet as well as the frosted glass in the door help fill this small powder room with natural light. The built-in bookcase is carved out of the underside of the stairs. The small salvage sink, wallpaper, antique soap dish, and repurposed snowshoe as the mirror help make this snug room quite elegant.

    hi there i am also wondering what toilet you used--it looks like a very nice, not "saying too much" toilet--and small too. would love make and model if you don't mind sharing that!

    I believe this is the Toto Drake with the soft close seat option.

    I'm not entirely sure how building codes work (grandfathering, etc) but were they an issue at all with the size of the bath?

    This is a renovated space for the powder room. This worked fine for the local building code. I would refer you to your own building codes to determine what might work in your town.

    You might need to get crafty and make one. This is what our client did here with an antique snowshoe she acquired.

    Just click on the question and you'll see whatever answers have been submitted. Or if you are having trouble finding a specific question, enter the subject matter it in the discussion search box and that should lead you to it. You may have to search through questions that had similar wording, so when you see a question that you know you'll want to see the answers to when they are submitted, write down the question so that you can search for it later.

    Sorry, this is another salvage sink our client found. But she found this one at Mason Brothers Salvage, Essex Junction, VT.

    That is a small salvage sink the homeowner collected over the years planning for this renovation.
    Hope that helps!

          3. Storage. Whether it’s in the form of a built-in or your vanity, a little storage may be just what your bathroom needs. Adding this element will give you room to grow. You can make your tight space feel larger by having a place to hide all your toiletries.

          Annie Thornton added this to Source List: 20 Wallpapers That Make the RoomJun 19, 2015

          5. Woods by Cole & SonBold wallpaper adds a layer of surprise to intimate spaces like vestibules, entryways and niches. In this powder room under some stairs, a popular birch tree wallpaper creates a calm indoor wilderness. The repurposed snowshoe as a mirror pulls us deeper into the woods.
