Square stone tiles adorn the entire wall behind the vanity and commode in this modern, neutral bathroom. The floating vanity is perfect for the small powder room. Modern fixtures complete the design scheme.
This open, airy master bathroom was transformed from a formerly small, narrow space that also included a small walk-in closet and linen closet. White custom cabinetry and loads of Carrara marble blend with soft gray walls, giving the space an ethereal, spa-like feel. A mix of recessed and decorative lighting add sparkle.
This fresh and fruity palette of green and orange is the perfect color combination for a small and narrow bathroom. The colors ensure that the room is not washed out or too bright. With a pedestal vanity, an alternate storage solution is essential if you want the kids to keep the bathroom squeaky clean.
A small hallway connects the front of the master bathroom with U-shaped vanity and large freestanding tub to the water closet, state-of-the-art shower with smart shower system and walk-in master closet.
A built-in vanity is paired with an upholstered chair and a small, ornate mirror to create a space for freshening up in this traditional bathroom. Subtly patterned wallpaper adds interest and movement to the space.
The property is large enough to include a guest house, called the casita (translation: small house). With its own separate entrance and luxurious bathroom, along with amazing views of the trees, it's a blissful private retreat.
The backyard pool has its own poolhouse and spacious patio. The patio is meant for smaller gatherings and includes a fireplace and a tv. The poolhouse keeps guests and residents comfortable with a shower and bathroom.
Down the hall, a small teal and white bathroom gives guests their own space to freshen up. Where white walls and a chrome sink make the space feel clean, a fish scale backsplash adds beautiful visual interest.
When selecting paint sheens, keep in mind that shiny surfaces help to make a small space feel larger because they are reflective, like in this modern kitchen with high-gloss orange cabinets. Use a semigloss sheen to visually expand a small kitchen or bathroom. Softer sheens, such as satin or eggshell, give bedrooms — especially kids' rooms and living areas — a more subtle finish.
The oversized walk-in shower features glass walls that allow it to flow seamlessly into the rest of the bathroom. The same granite from the vanity countertops is used as a shelf and small seat in the shower.
One of designer Claire Paquin's favorite ways to make an impact in the bathroom is marble mosaic floor tiles. "Bathrooms rarely have any opportunity for pattern, with the exceptions of window treatments and wallpaper, so a patterned floor tile is a great place to splurge. Sometimes the small, intricate patterns are expensive, but you typically won't need to buy as much," says Paquin.
One of the home's five bathrooms, this small space features a large mirror, two medicine cabinets, a sleek modern vanity and plenty of drawers for extra linens. The neutral-and-black tile adds a fun, retro touch to the space.
A reclaimed factory window serves as the shower door in this country cottage. The striking black and white color palate keeps the bathroom feeling modern and fresh. A small window in the shower lets in just enough natural light.
