This bathroom, which was designed Lisa Kahn, might be draped in subtle seafoam and white, but the expansive floor-to-ceiling window adds more colors (and textures) to the mix. Together, the palettes make for a serene, spa-like bathroom.
Emerald Green Update
Prefer a bolder palette? Here, designer Nikki Levy paired emerald-colored tiles with marble countertops and brass fixtures for an end look that’s positively head-turning.
Let this be proof that you can pair natural elements like wood and stone with colorful tiles and runners for a cozy modern bathroom. As for us, we’re still swooning over the wainscoting and arched vanity spaces.
Dark and Stormy
Perfect for a bachelor or anyone who craves a bit of dark drama, this black, slate, and brass bathroom looks equal parts mysterious and romantic. Notice how the left wall looks like Mercury glass? Quite the unique touch.
Have you ever seen a more inviting bathtub? The arched entryway paired with the wainscoting, claw-foot tub, and dainty curtains make this bathroom, which was designed by Philip Mitchell, seem like a charming country retreat.
Clean lines breathe life into this modern bathroom by Christina Rottman. From the immaculate tub to the massive glass shower (which has a door out to the patio) to the spacious vanity, this bathroom has so many design elements worth copying.
One way to add a touch of flair to your bathroom without adding a lot of decor items is by leaving your pipes exposed. Here, the tub and sink both feature exposed pipes, and it gives the space an industrial-chic allure. We also love the orchid arrangement in the shower.
Bold Powder Room
Designer Traci Connell is the mastermind behind this bold bathroom from the 2021 Kips Bay Dallas Show House. In addition to dousing the space with color, Connell made sure to add plenty of texture with woven baskets and flowers to make it truly dimensional.
Enclosed Outdoor Shower
Let’s just call this the best of both worlds, shall we? Complete with two rain shower heads and a deep pedestal tub, this bathroom makeover idea is, quite simply, what dreams are made of. Steve Giannetti brought this nature-inspired room to life.
If you love an all-white vanity aesthetic but don’t want to completely forgo color, consider lining your walls with a dainty wallpaper like this blue and white one, here.
Quirky Corner Sink
Don’t forget about the powder rooms in your home. If your space is particularly small, opting for a corner sink like this shell-inspired one is a great idea.
This bathroom might be very simple in its design, but it’s nothing short of a statement maker. The wood-paneled ceiling bleeds into the marble shower and floor, while the all-white tub provides high contrast in a way that’s both eye-opening and inviting. The large glass windows make you feel like your bathing outside, which adds to the spa-like vibe.
Not all bathrooms come with linen closets, so it helps to know how to make use of the space you have. One popular way to store towels and washcloths is in rattan baskets. As a bonus, they add a textural element to the space.
Iconic designer Alidad has a solution for those looking for a serene bathroom without sacrificing their love of color: Opt for a bright welcome into a more neutral bath.
One With Nature
Designed specifically with the North Carolina wilderness in mind, this stunning bathroom, which was designed by Al and Parker Platt, proves that sometimes the most striking element of a bath space is what lies beyond the windows. This sunken tub under a large window gives a whole new meaning to “forest bathing.”
Black and White
If you ever thought that creating a bold bathroom required tons of color, designer Shazalynn Cavin-Winfrey has news for you. This black and white powder room mixes prints and finishes for a regal black-tie appeal.
How quaint is this polka-dotted bathroom? Heather Chadduck Hillegas is to thank for the darling take on a traditional farmhouse washroom. We particularly love the little details, like the picture ledge, layered window treatments, and curvy pedestal sinks.
Abalone and Gold
This space might be filled with neutral colors, but the various finishes make it a standout space. From the shiny brass fixtures to the textured walls to the impeccably lit abalone vanity, it’s truly a sight to behold.
If you look closely, you’ll notice that the pink walls are illustrated with fish, while the shower wall features black and white dots. Together, with the wood vanity and black and brass fixtures, this bathroom shows just how well competing elements can mesh.
Designed by Robert Passal, this gray and white bathroom exudes mid-century modern charm. The light fixture alone takes this space to a whole new level—which is to remind you: Never underestimate the power of lighting.
