These days there's no need to skimp when it comes to bathroom design in log homes. But there is reason to be thoughtful. Log homes present unique challenges for installing tubs, showers, plumbing and cabinetry due to the profile of interior logs and their movement as they settle. Provisions have to be made for that movement. But before you consult the experts, make a general assessment of your bathroom and powder room needs. Keep in mind, for instance, that a bathroom used by multiple bedrooms will likely require more counter space and cabinet space. For aesthetic reasons, avoid locating bathroom doors right off of living areas, especially if the toilet is directly visible when the door opens. Another good idea is to provide natural light if possible. Use of light colors can make for a cheerier room, while limiting vertical lines will give the impression of more space.
