A compact 5x13-foot bathroom serves as a guest bath as well as a convenience for swimmers using the pool outside. A space-saving pocket door separates the sink area from the toilet and shower, and a window in the shower lets in light from the patio, keeping this basement bath from feeling dark and enclosed.
Old barnwood bought at a salvage yard serves as the vanity countertop. Leaving the area under the vanity open helps the narrow space feel larger.
