The gray tile gives this slender shower a tunnel-like effect against the neutral tones in the bathroom. Two strips made of small white and gray tiles run from the floor to the ceiling for a fun, decorative accent.
Artwork and accessories have no place in a room where materials and clean lines take center stage. White porcelain tile, cabinetry and countertops create a feeling of tranquility. Glass doors provide a seamless transition from bathroom to shower stall. A small picture window floods the space with sunlight.
Susan Brunstrum updated this small powder room by using a monochromatic color palette to enlarge the space. Taupe, cream and beige create an unified effect, while a dark wood mirror above the vanity coordinates with the dark wood of the bathroom door. The look is understated but is soft and welcoming.
Clean, crisp lines and a neutral color palette create a guest bathroom with contemporary flair. The white vanity "floats" in the space and is surrounded by clean white subway tile. Frameless glass on the shower helps to open up the small space.
Warm, neutral tones create a relaxing atmosphere in this spacious and contemporary master bedroom. A comfy sofa and cream coffee table make for a cozy place to relax and a small wood desk offers a private place to work or write. Wooden french doors open up to a closet and master bathroom.
A hallway and adjacent powder room have a personality all their own in the HGTV Smart Home 2013. Used on the wall of the bathroom, gray mosaic tile creates a soothing effect in the small space. Meanwhile, teal stripes create a dizzying backdrop for a hall table and lamp.
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, designer Sarah Richardson created a cozy, relaxing corner in this spa bathroom with a sleek soaking tub and built-in ledge perfect for holding candles or a glass of wine. A small, linear gallery wall adds color to the monochromatic space and boosts the room's spa-like ambiance.
Think outside the bottle with this accordion-style rack that's typically used to store wine or bottles of Pellegrino. A wine rack in the bathroom is a clever way to keep a few towels right at hand. It's a perfect solution for a guest bathroom, so friends don't need to hunt down a clean hand towel. Simply roll up towels and place bath towels on top and smaller hand towels and washcloths in the spaces below. Design by Jen Jafarzadeh L'Italien. Photography by Charlotte Jenks Lewis
Perhaps our favorite part of this bedroom is the sliding barn door that reveals the bathroom and small study area. The door is painted a lovely shade of lavender that is also found in the bedding. The room feels bright and airy thanks to the natural light pouring from the windows and reflecting off the stark white walls.
The small gray and white tile of the shower room adds a bit of flair to this modern en suite. The large tile of the marble floor in the bathroom area adds color and compliments the modern design of the space, but the shower room adds elegant contrast and give the space a little extra dimension.
Sometimes, a storage unit can play more than one role in a space, as in this contemporary master bath designed by Alisha Hillary. “The towel caddy was installed between the vanity and the toilet primarily to stop the view straight to the toilet when walking into the bathroom,” says Hillary. “It also serves as a great spot to store hand towels or candles and other small decorative items. The small stone feature tile running up behind the caddy references back to the travertine on the floor.”
Bright and cheerful patterned tile dresses up the shower in this eclectic master bath. Tile completely covers the shower walls, making the small space pop in the white-walled bathroom. A rainforest shower head and handheld attachment are high-end touches, resulting in a space that blends function with luxury.
The graphic patterns and bold colors characteristic of midcentury style can overwhelm a small space. But with a little creativity you can get the same effect, as designer Michelle Lord did in this bathroom update. Adding a lattice panel between the vanity and toilet/bath area not only created a sense of privacy but also incorporated pattern and texture, without straying from the all-white and wood palette.
A powder room is a great place to create a sense of drama as it is small and intimate and is visited for just a few minutes at a time. The black/white/gray geometric cement tiles continue the theme from the kitchen to bathroom. The pattern in this powder room is a bit different but the flooring adds a bit more drama.
Comfort and convenience define this contemporary sitting room, designed by TriplePoint Design Build, with its built-in cabinetry and minimalist furnishings. Continuing the neutral color scheme defined for this home, the space features a small couch, interesting multicolor art and an hourglass-style floor lamp with drum shade. The wood floor is partially covered by a area rug in a brown and beige circular design. For convenience sake, a bathroom has been included adjacent to the room.
Even shipping container homes are bigger in Texas. Called PV14 House, since it uses 14 shipping containers, this Dallas home from M Gooden Design is one of the largest at 3,700 square feet. This home contains three bedrooms, a den, entertainment area, three-and-a-half bathrooms and a two-car garage. There’s also a small penthouse and a large roof deck. A glass-fronted second floor, complete with a full-length balcony, maximizes prime views of a lake and park across the way.
This beautiful Asian spa in spired master bathroom is the ultimate place to relax in this on-the-go city. Twenty six floors above the Las Vegas Strip, this bathroom feels like a quick trip to their orient. The double sink vanity is custom made from zebra wood, which gives the space a more authentic look. A large soaker tub is tucked away behind a small wall so that bathers can still enjoy the view from the sky, but are also given a bit of privacy. The accents in the space also help to give it that private, spa feel. The koi fish on the wall bring in the Asian inspiration, while the cherry ladder shelving houses spa essentials as well as antique Asian accessories.
You would expect a lot from the master suite closet of a $35 million dollar Beverly Hills home, and you’d get it here. More spacious than some people’s entire apartments, this closet features a flat-screen TV, a fireplace, bathroom fixtures, a small refrigerator and a grand leather chaise. An overhead skylight lets in natural lighting, while recessed lighting and a modern, crystal-draped chandelier provide illumination at night. Light wood floors and dark wood shelving give the feeling of a luxurious retail showroom rather than a closet, befitting this 15,500-square-foot mansion just a stone's throw from the luxurious Beverly Hills Hotel. Shelly and Avi Osadon, the husband and wife duo behind SEE Materials and SEE Construction, created the home.
