Vanity framed on end wall of powder room. We could remove the tub shower
and install a feature like this on the back wall.

Another way to build on family room stair wall at right of wet bar.
This could house china and dining room storage.

Flush door for powder room with streamlined
hardware, diminishes bulk of existing wood panel doors. Lose the stripes.

Another end wall vanity with toilet in same place as our  downstaris bath.

Lighting treatment with shutter wall effect, white plastic reflects light
against dark stained wood

Ceiling treatment. Not to my taste but the dramatic lighting, framing
light color on ceiling dresses up the powder room

A large antique cupboard used as vanity with large surface area. Toilet is exposed, See other examples where
a divider screens the commode from rest of bath.

Wall sconces, mirror wall, large scale artwork,
toilet at right behind door in niche. Our vanity is where the toilet is.
remove the tub/shower at back, replace with vanity and move toilet across
room replacing the existing sink and vanity in niche.

Understairs powder room and streamline door with hardware.
Excellent use of confined space. 

Trompe l'oeil ceiling treatment wiht chandelier; toilet screened by half-height wall.

Another screened commode; this one with tile surround. This arrangment
could replace shower/tub with commode add divider and archway treatment.
I don't like a tile floor treatment for the powder room. 

Treatment for backstair closet at top of landing over family room.
Right now there is a tall narrow closet with no racks or shelves.
It would be easy to frame this in and use the open arch idea on top and add
to our book storage.  It would make a nice upstairs book stash for guests wanting reading material
but not wanting to go the basement library to find one.

My Partner has a huge armoire like this that we have to put in the basement foyer area at
bottom of basement steps. The ceiling is high here so a wall treatment in synch with the antique piece
to dress up the bare white drywall space. Maybe wood panels or wallpaper. Someting to make arrviing in the
basement more than the ordinary experience, continue through the cross hall and into the library. 

The laundry room has bad tile flooring or vinyl; either way it's butt ugly.
We will definitely replace with this black and white check florring.
