When we built our gameroom we made it two stories so that we could have a place for pool downstairs and a place for ping pong upstairs since my husband loves ping pong.
We needed a bathroom in the space but space was an issue because both ping pong and pool require room for play. We decided to configure the stairs such that we could tuck in a compact bath beneath. It has been surprisingly difficult to get a good picture of the space but I will post what I have. The door is a barn type sliding door that closes on the outside of the bathroom giving us the benefit of a precious additional 4 inches that would have been lost with use of a pocket door. When the door is closed it appears to be a continuation of the wooden panel wall. The key features of the bath are the bright red sink and the white veined black marble flooring. The entire bathroom except the ceiling is tiled in black subway tile and grouted with black grout. The toilet is also black. This allows the sink and the mirror to really be the features since the room is too small to have a lot of competing elements. The space was too tight for a regular glass shower door so I made a shower liner and a decorative solid black drapery panel to set it off. I had three glass companies come out to see if they could figure out a glass shower door solution. I know shower curtains strike a nerve with some but in this case it was the only viable option. I used a crowd control cord like movie theaters and opera houses use. Found one in black with chrome latches. I cut it off to the right length, attached it to the wall and made a masculine looking curtain tie-back. We installed a recessed light in the shower that also has a ventilation fan hidden within. This makes showing with light possible in spite of the shower curtains blocking out the lights over the sink. We use florescent bulbs to avoid hot bulbs and glass shades touching the curtain. Glossy black shelves were installed behind the toilet for extra storage. Decorative jars beneath the sink serve double duty to store extra paper products, travel sized soaps and shampoos, sun block for pool side and the like. This bathroom is indeed compact but nowhere must one squeeze or contort to get to the sink, toilet or into the shower. My oldest son is a big guy and he navigates the space just fine as was our space tester. I will work on getting better photos.

Our guest/pool bath. Kept existing light tile countertop and faucet. Painted vanity white and gave it a "furniture" look and new hardware. (DH had a cow! Installed chair rail small crown molding and framed the mirror. Everyone insists faux finish is wallpaper. More DIY stuff on my blog http://www.ratemyfavoritespaces.com

I wanted this bathroom to be luxurious and make you feel like you were in a 5 star hotel. Travertine throughout (noce, tumbled edge, Brizo faucets and custom vanity surrounds. I thought the chandelier was a nice finishing touch. Let me know what you think. Thanks.

My kids are getting a little older so I updated their bathroom by painting over a frog mural and making a botanical room. I attached matchstick blinds to the ceiling for texture.
