Our talented designers at Dalton Carpet One would be happy to assist you in upgrading your guest bathrooms for the holiday season, so make your appointment today!



Cabinet Hardware and Plumbing Fixtures


The first update to consider for your guest bath would be new hardware for the cabinets, or “cabinet jewelry.” New hardware can elevate the space easily without breaking the bank. We carry a variety of cabinet hardware that fits any design style — from gold, silver, copper, acrylic, and more. Check out our Cabinet Hardware inspiration page for inspirational project photos of beautiful cabinet hardware. You also might consider changing your plumbing fixtures for another easy update in the bathroom. If you change your cabinet hardware to another metal, you might consider updating the plumbing fixtures to the match the new cabinet hardware too.




Lighting Fixtures


Lighting fixtures are a great way to add some character and ambiance to your space. We can help elevate your guest bathroom this season with a wide variety of lighting options offered at Dalton Carpet One, from vanity lighting, LED mirrors, multi-light vanity lighting, and pendant lights. Vanity lights can be found in many forms and will provide the best lighting surrounding your mirror. Vanity lights are commonly paired with a multi-light vanity lights above to provide the perfect lighting while getting ready. If you don’t have a lot of natural light coming in from a window in your guest bath, LED mirrors are a great option to install for your guests to have perfect lighting to get ready.




Designer Tips: Decor and Tile


“The smaller the room, the bigger the impact.”


Two of our talented designers, Caty DeLaigle and Keri Dunn, have a few tips to elevate your guest bathroom or half bath for the holidays. They both suggest that wallpaper is a great way to elevate your half or guest bath. Caty says to go big and bold with wallpaper or tile floors. “The smaller the room, the bigger the impact.” A guest bathroom is a great place to install some unique tile, either on the floors or in the shower, to liven up the space. View Caty’s project Chevron Master Bath to see how she utilizes tile to create a beautiful, clean bathroom for her clients. Installing tile behind the vanity is perfect for creating movement and texture in a smaller guest bathroom. You might also think about using a wallpaper behind the vanity area, and then the rest of the way down installing a tile. This is a great option for half baths that need a little something extra. Caty also says that painting a ceiling an unexpected color in high gloss is also a great option. A fresh coat of paint in the guest bathroom is a simple way to elevate the space.



Keri suggests that installing wallpaper, new art, or fresh towels are a great way to elevate your guest bathroom. View her bathroom remodel Classic Elegant Bathroom to see how she utilizes wallpaper, art, cabinet hardware, and more to design a beautiful guest bath for her client. Dalton Carpet One offers a variety of beautiful wallpaper options from top manufacturers, including Thibaut. If you have a bathroom with some extra space, try installing a built-in bench to utilize the space and create some extra storage in the bathroom for towels, toilet paper, and anything else your guests might need. Installing a bench with fresh cushions and pillows that complement your wallpaper is another way to make the space cozy and inviting.



Half baths and guest baths are often overlooked until you have guests, so we are here to help you create a beautiful space for your family or friends this holiday season.
