A brown marble shower boasts a small window and open entry, creating an more spacious feel in this bathroom. Wood cabinetry and neutral counters fill the room with warm tones and complement the brown tile floors.
The white pedestal sink has a strong presence against the metallic houndstooth wall in this stylish bathroom. A matte finish on the black floor counters the shiny surfaces surrounding it. Black trim outlines the space and blends with the dark color scheme.
In this double-vanity bathroom, a TV is built into the wall between the two mirrors, providing entertainment for its occupants while they get ready for the day. White vessel sinks atop stone counters lend simple, spa-like style the space.
This glam-meets-masculine master bathroom was created in its entirety with just three unique tiles used to fabulous effect. At counter height, a slim row of handmade tiles separate the large porcelain tiles from the delicate sea glass with a seamless run from the cantilevered countertop to the corner of the tiled tower. Solid glass doors with slight chrome edging act as a masculine contrast against the gold tones in the tile.
Calacatta marble on the counters, floors and shower wall adds clean, crisp elegance in this traditional California bathroom. White cabinetry blends in with the marble, while gold hardware is a stylish and unexpected touch. A built-in vanity separates the dual sinks.
Never underestimate the power of art, even in the bathroom. Oversized artwork can make a dominant design statement in a bathroom. Here, the large image and neutral colors of this smiling Buddha, selected by McNeal Walker Interiors for $20 at a home discount store, create a tranquil focal point and draw the eyes up and away from the more functional parts of the room.
This master bathroom is a luxurious retreat contrasting classic tile and fixtures with vintage lighting and rich color. The centerpiece of the room is the oval jacuzzi tub with a stunning chandelier overhead. The tile, counters and flooring are crema marfil marble with honey onyx accents.
ESCAPE Vista's open floor plan features a light, airy kitchen that contains all the comforts of home. Maple cabinetry offers plenty of storage in this tiny home, while modern, stainless steel appliances offer all the conveniences to which homeowners are accustomed-a sink, under-counter fridge/freezer and a cooktop. At the rear of the space, the kitchen and dining area leads to a full bathroom that is separated from the living space by a solid core pine door that has been frosted for privacy.
This spacious bathroom boasts high ceilings divided by an archway that frames the copper tub area. A Moroccan-style gold chandelier emphasizes the painted arched ceiling. Two separate vanities with dark wood and muted blue cabinets are topped with gray stone counters for a touch of Old World charm.
The lacquered wood counters and sinks in this master bathroom -- an unexpected material application -- were custom fabricated by the homeowner. Bundles of rebar compose the vanity legs. The mirror was a ready-made mirror but embellished with an extra layer in order to frame it out and create more contrast against the tile.
While butcher block may not be a popular choice for bathroom design, it's actually an excellent fit, especially for master bathrooms with high traffic. To ensure durability with a rustic, industrial edge, reclaimed butcher-block counters were first cut to size by using a template and a circular saw, then sanded, oiled and sealed to fit atop the existing cabinetry.
For the bathroom of a new home in Westchester County, NY, architect Daniel Contelmo created an elegant vanity that is as rich in storage as it is in style. “It’s packed with various storage options, equally divided for the couple who shares the bath,” says Contelmo. Among the amenities are a built-in hamper, a linen closet, plenty of cabinets and drawers, lighted custom-framed mirrors and a central shelving area that offers display space and visually breaks the long limestone counter.
HGTV Design Star winner Meg Caswell designed the entire home, but this master bathroom is her favorite room. The green glass tile contrasts with the white counters, while large porcelain floor tiles make the room feel fresh and spa like. The modern bathroom has high windows providing plenty of natural light, and a long mirror that stretches above both vanity sinks. The white countertop extends beyond the vanities and changes level to conform to the varied height of the woodgrain cabinets.
A floating vanity and spacious glass shower open up this previously cramped bathroom. Rather than splurging on stone slab counters, Brown Design Group cuts costs with a one-piece countertop and sink. A single glass-panel shower helps the room feel larger while saving on extra hardware for a swinging door. Large-format wall tiles make for a quick install.
This modern master bathroom features a mix of stone surfaces for a polished finish. Ocean blue travertine walls, fusion quartzite counters and seagrass limestone flooring create a sharp, geometrical look with calming neutral colors. A large vanity mirror and glass enclosed shower keep the room feeling open and spacious. Floating wood shelves stack beside the bathtub for easy and organized storage.
Tiling all or part of wall can provide a hint of dramatic flair in any bathroom. Designer Jessica Murphy of Her Cave Atlanta bought her contrasting charcoal Niagra quartzite and glacier marble splitface stonework tile, and received a 50 percent discount because it was her first purchase. She says a lighting fixture can command visual interest and be cheap, like this one that she bought on eBay for $150.
Mason jars are a pretty and practical solution for organizing cotton balls and Q-tips, but glass in the bathroom is a risky matter and counter space is always at a premium. Here's a solution for getting everything up on the wall in style. All you need is a piece of wood, paint, pipe clamps, wide-mouth Mason jars, screws and picture hangers. Paint your wood board the color you want. Once it's dry, screw the pipe clamps onto the wood (be sure to measure out how many Mason jars you'll be adding and space them out on the board). Add picture hangers to the back of the board to hang it on the wall. Then, slide the Mason jars into the pipe clamps. Be sure the pipe clamps are tight enough to catch the lip of the jar. Now you have all your essentials within reach, and they look good, too. Design by Liz Marie Galvan
