what do you think of these two bathrooms?

Does the second one have a bath? Don't like the first, a bit too hotel bathroom impersonal for my liking.

They're both nice, looks as though the 2nd one is bigger than the 1st. I prefer the shower in the 2nd but the toilet is better in the first (don't like wooden seats).

Also, where is the bath in the 2nd one?

Also - why would anyone put a chair in the bathroom?!

I like the first, I suppose everyone has their own preferences. I like the large wall tiles, they give a great idea of space.

There are elements of both that I like - I like the clean lines of the first one but I prefer a brighter bathroom. As I get older I find focussing in the dark more difficult.

So I like the brightness of the 2nd one but I'm not keen on the toilet seat and chairs and it generally looks a bit random - I don't like the floor either. The sink and radiator I do like.

Second doesn't have a bath. Both are in the same house. First one is smaller but has a separate bath and separate shower.
I agree re toilet seat.

My dad told me I needed to put a chair in the bathroom so people could sit down when they put their socks on.

I prefer the second one.

Another photo of first one to get a sense of the space

OneMagnumisneverenough Tue 26-Apr-16 13:42:31

What's going in the big space above the bath? A mirror?

On balance I'd probably choose the first one.

Why do you ask?

OneMagnumisneverenough Tue 26-Apr-16 13:45:36

I also think the layout in the 2nd one is a bit odd with the loo so far from the sink and close to the shower - it may have been the only place to put them though. However I would have but them in the opposite spaces with the loo over by the window and the sink by the door so it flowed better although I appreciate it would be nice to get the light from the window by the sink.

Love the first, hate the second.

MrsDarcy4092 Tue 26-Apr-16 13:48:19

Yes, a mirror.

These are the two "bathrooms" in our house. I'm just trying to get an honest sense of whether we've done them right. We wanted them to be different which can be hard to do. I find bathrooms really difficult to get right,

I prefer the 1st one as it looks like it would be easy to keep clean without looking too bland, add a plant, some nice towels and maybe a vase on the windowsill and it would look less clinical.
I hate bathrooms that are dust traps and I think 2 is leaning that way although it's a perfectly nice space if you like that sort of thing.

Very little storage in first. None in second. Would make me wibble a bit!
Prefer first.
Second could be improved with built in cupboard above WC (getting rid of the alcove) and continuing with dado height metro tiles behind sink and radiator. Would put in modern illuminated mirrored cabinet and get rid of the over-sink lights. Wallpaper would go. Loo seat has to go. Would consider changing flooring though it looks brand-new. Is fixable I think.
My husband think it was fine as it was and be loathe to change it.
Can't believe they're in the same house - very different styles.

OneMagnumisneverenough Tue 26-Apr-16 13:55:52

Oops, I feel cheeky now. sad

I'm one to talk, I did all mine all the same because I couldn't be bothered to think about it. grin

I think they are both very different and being honest if I found them both in one house I'd be confused and wondering which one hadn't been done yet.

If one is an en-suite and has been done to match the style of the bedroom it comes off it would be less odd.

yomellamoHelly Tue 26-Apr-16 13:59:20

Just seen your update.
As long as you love them tbh it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. Two bathrooms is a fab thing to have.

specialsubject Tue 26-Apr-16 13:59:43

if they are installed, bit late to ask!

both are cleaning nightmares, with so little space around the toilet and sink in the first and that major muck-trap radiator in the second. Still, you probably know that by now..

OneMagnumisneverenough Tue 26-Apr-16 14:06:44

I think it's a lot easier to do the 1st style successfully as it's modern and clean. The eclectic look is a bit harder to achieve from scratch and I think it needs something just to gel it together better.

I think what I'd do with it is go for a black and white theme in it, paint the walls white and get a black loo seat and maybe a white wicker chair with black an white cushions on it, black towels etc. I think then the floor would like better, I think there are too many clashing wood tones at the moment. I do like a wallpaper in the bathroom but I think there are just too many different tones and colours and it's just looking not white right but very rescue-able with not much change.

MrsDarcy4092 Tue 26-Apr-16 14:07:02

There's quite a lot of storage in both funny enough. The first one has a cupboard under sink and the mirror is a cabinet which is recessed into the wall. The second has a really large cupboard to the right of shower (by chair).

The reason we wanted them to be so different is they are on different floors. The second is on the third floor and is joined by 2 bedrooms and is a guest floor. This floor has Got a completely different feel to the rest of the house because it was traditionally for staff to live in so all the door and window furniture is different, ceilings are lower too. It has a really cosy cottagey feeling and we wanted to reflect that in how it's decorated. But the rest of th house is traditionally quite grand. We wanted to keep the house as traditionally intended with two different looks. Hope that makes sense!

*guite right not white right!

OneMagnumisneverenough Tue 26-Apr-16 14:08:45

sheesh *quite not guite! blush

OneMagnumisneverenough Tue 26-Apr-16 14:13:12

That makes more sense then MrsD

Hope we've not put you off, but you did ask! grin

MrsDarcy4092 Tue 26-Apr-16 14:16:04

Not at all!! It's so useful and interesting to see things from others perspective.

roundandroundthehouses Tue 26-Apr-16 14:17:04

The first one looks a bit impersonal now, but could be made lovely with accessories. It's the one that I would choose over the other one, even though I like the quirky look of the other one better, because it looks easier to keep clean!
