Clean and airy, this bathroom is the answer to a call for relaxation.
Meet the Owners: Nelda and Claude Clayton
Did you design the bathroom from the start?
Claude and I had a clear vision of what we wanted in our bathroom. We made sketches and Dusty Parker, an architect from Pontotoc, put our sketches into a working design.
Where did you look for design and decor ideas?
I watched HGTV, used the Houzz website, looked at magazines and asked several professionals for their ideas and help.
What is your favorite part of the bathroom?
My favorite part is the oversized tub and Claude’s favorite part is the shower.
Is there anything you would have done differently?
Yes, nothing major but I would have configured the cabinets differently. I wish we had more cabinet space including a concealed area for our electrical gadgets.
What advice would you give to someone building or redoing a bathroom?
My advise would be to search magazines and websites to find the look and feel you want for your bathroom. Once you have an idea of what you want, don’t hesitate to ask professionals for their help with design, colors and materials.
Describe your very first bathroom.
Oh, my goodness! The bathroom in the first house I owned was tiny!! You could stand in one spot and flush the toilet and turn on the faucets in the sink and in the bathtub! There was no storage other than a towel bar, no shower and a tiny window with frosted glass! I thought I was in”high cotton”! I was grateful for that little bathroom and I am very grateful for this new bathroom, too.
