We're re-doing our old (master) bathroom. It's small-ish, not that that's here nor there. This weekend we need to pick out tile for the bath, light fixtures, vanity, and paint for the walls and ceiling. I have some design skills but am finding myself bereft of inspiration. Any good sites out there focusing on cool interior (esp. bathroom) design?

Back in the days when people commonly smoked inside their offices, and everywhere else, was it common/acceptable/possibly even polite?
for people to smoke while sitting on the toilet? If so, was there a gender divide? [more inside]

The medicine cabinet in the bathroom of my new apartment is missing its internal shelves. This limits its usefulness pretty significantly. Any ideas where I could look for thin, lightweight shelves to replace the missing ones? [more inside]

Master bath a disaster zone, in need of a top-to-bottom gutting and expansion. As a preface to the designing process, my architect has tasked me with a project: finding a bathtub. How do I do this? [more inside]

Is there a place where I can see many bathroom vanities on display? I need to buy a bathroom vanity and it is something I need to see in real life not just on a website as color and quality can look different up close. Places like Home Depot and Lowes only display a few and a search for "bathroom showroom" found contractor/decorator storefronts where the main purpose is to sell $20,000 bathroom makeovers rather than to display products. Are these things people typically buy mail order without having seen them or am I looking in the wrong place?

How do I get a new more comfortable bath? What is involved? How much would it likely cost, once I factor in labour and any other things it affects (in the UK)? I've never done this sort of thing before and haven't a clue. [more inside]

Is there a legitimate, non-slang word for the need to go to the bathroom? By that I mean a singular adjective, i.e. "nauseous," but for, well, pooping. Attempts to Google yield only annoying links to Urban Dictionary, etc.

PlumbingFilter: My google-fu is failing me and need help finding directions on fixing our bathroom sink faucet. It only leaks when it's turned on and not from around the handles.
Most of the internet directions are for fixing faucets that drip all the time or stopping a leak around the fixture handles when it's turned on. Maybe my problem is like one of these two, but the symptoms are completely different and I'm not a plumber. [more inside]

Hello. A weird one: In my bathroom there's some mold. I clean it up once a while, but it's kinda there. Anyway, from time to time I can see some bugs running through it. Little bugs, coming out where there's running water, and disappearing, once the water's out. They're *tiny*. Real tiny. Smaller than an ant.
Anyone has any idea what I'm talking about? Can anyone direct me to any information regarding these bugs?

At what point in history did men and women get their 'bathroom rules'?
Specifically, I'm wondering why men have public urinating and women have their own stalls always. What determined this? [more inside]

I'm in the midst of a bathroom remodel and about to insulate and close up the walls. I'm a little confused on the best way to insulate the exterior walls of my 80-year old house. A diagram of the existing wall can be seen here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ctracey/3538183459/
I've checked a lot of online resources and books, but few of them deal with a wall construction such as this. [more inside]

Can anyone recommend a company to do a bathroom renovation in the inner west of Sydney? Or any hints and tips on picking a company, costs etc? Convenience, time and cost are all (naturally) important.

Any similar sinks out there to the Ikea HÖLLVIKEN
bathroom sink? I like the size and shape of this basin, but want to get some other options. Also, if anyone knows anything about the quality of this sink, those comments would also be appreciated.
