Bathroom design dilemma
We had the opportunity to remodel our small downstairs bathroom after a fire. I wanted to have an extra shower so I used the adjacent bedroom closet to make a good sized walk in shower (on the opposite wall from the sink and toilet) but I was still left with only 4 feet to put in the sink and toilet which were left in their original position. My dream was to have a custom vanity top made that extended out over the toilet, put a mirror on the whole wall and run the accent tile I used in the shower extending the length of the wall between the counter top and mirror. The contractors were anxious to finish so my pictures show what I ended up with. I priced out the custom counter option and it's more than I can spend right now (and the built in sink that came with the vanity is quite nice). I would still like to put the accent tile along the whole wall but I don't want to have just a strip of accent tile running along the wall with nothing under or above it. I do need more counter space since the vanity is only 18" deep. Does anyone have any suggestions for adding shelf over the toilet that wouldn't look like a cob job or even suggestions on how I can add the accent tile along the wall without adding extra counter space or tiling up the wall?
