A remarkably generous, well-appointed bathroom that you pass through from the kitchen to the master bedroom make this much more than an afterthought. With walk-in shower and washer and dryer and a clean fresh white-and-soft-gray color scheme,, nothing feels downsized in this glam bath.
Bring loads of natural light into an interior space with a skylight tube, as seen in this bright, white bathroom. The idea of cutting a hole in a roof may be intimidating, but this project can be completed in a few hours with midlevel DIY skills.
Here's a fun idea: To break up the boxy shape of this bathroom, the freestanding tub was placed at an angle in one corner. Its graceful curves are another welcome foil to the room's crisp, angular lines.
The waterfall bench connecting the makeup console and its supporting end embraces the idea of flowing water, much like that of Frank Lloyd Wright's famous Fallingwater house. Moreover, the wall-mounted faucets enhance the cascading effect of water.
Designer Emily Esposito went through about 10 different ideas for the powder bathroom before finalizing this design. It features a custom floating concrete ramp sink with a backsplash of wood paneling and shimmery mica wallpaper.
HGTV Star contestant Brooks Atwood based his concept for this city loft space on the idea that architecture can perform specific functions. For example, the wall in the bathroom folds in and splits open to become a medicine cabinet. He also made the closets double-sided in order to eliminate the need for another wall and save valuable square footage.
Many new-construction homes are built with paneled, hollow-core interior doors. These are often considered eyesores, but their presence can be minimized by painting them the same color as the walls and/or covering them with wall hooks to hold towels or robes. Another clever idea is to completely cover the door with art. In order to this this, you'll need anchors to reinforce the hollow veneer of the door and help support each featured piece.
Think of dedicating a space in your bedroom or bathroom to getting ready. Nothing makes a night out special like a place reserved for a beautifully curated grouping of grooming essentials. The dressing table is a classic idea we'd love to see brought back.
Clever hanging storage maximizes space in the universal design bathroom. “We had a situation where the floor and all of the walls are tiled and no place to put anything you need to have in a bathroom, so we came up with this shelving idea that David Brown built for us that is modern looking, clean, simple and it really feels perfect in this room,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum.
Once a neglected detached garage, this beautifully appointed guest suite retains its original idea through the installation of a garage door. A separate track allows for a barn door that encloses the guest bathroom. The bed takes advantage of the light and air from a bank of three large windows. Meanwhile, a petite kitchen area provides cabinetry and a sink, giving guests the essentials for a light snack. White walls and bedding give the space a clean, airy look and feel.
