Many of us have a room in our house that we just don’t like to think about. To be honest, it’s a room that doesn’t get a lot of respect. It’s there, and it’s necessary, but we really don’t pay much attention to it—until our guests go in there. And there’s the problem. It’s probably the one room in the house that more guests see than any other room (except maybe the kitchen). It’s the guest bathroom. Sometimes we’re even a little bit embarrassed by this unadorned room and wish we could hang a “closed” sign on the door and forget about it.

Some people describe themselves as “big picture” people. They don’t sweat the small stuff—they’re concerned about the overall plan. Others are “detail” people and pay attention to the small things that can make a big difference between an average project and an outstanding one. When it comes to renovating the kitchen in your Potomac or Travila home, you really want both.
