Half-Baths Full of Function
Design these small spaces to be as practical as they are beautiful
Architect Lynn Hopkins offers a full vision of how to make a half-bath work, functionally and aesthetically, to create a sense of privacy for guests in the public spaces of your home. One example shows how re-evaluating the need for a full bath may offer an expanded range of finish options as a half-bath, since moisture and toiletry concerns have been eliminated. Another example suggests taking the attention off a powder room facing the front door between a double staircase. By placing the half-bath beneath one of the staircases, the freed space creates a sightline through the house to the back garden.
