For a budget bathroom update, Patti Wagner and her husband replaced the damaged green floor tiles with inexpensive hexagon-shaped white tiles in their Minneapolis home. “The white floor really makes the room look bigger,” says Wagner, a senior product designer for Target. They also maximized the small space by keeping the existing pedestal sink and large medicine cabinet. Towel hooks also are great for small bathrooms, because they don't take up much space and you can place them anywhere, she says.
The master bath's larger vanity, with solid maple drawer fronts painted bright white, includes a 40-inch-wide by 30-inch-high medicine cabinet with anodized aluminum construction and a durable rust-free and chip-free finish.
This master bathroom features walls covered in Venetian plaster and a black and white toile shower curtain. Custom elements, like the medicine cabinet which was created from an old Venetian mirror, add personality to the room.
Recessed medicine cabinets provide ample storage while custom designed light fixtures in antique bronze illuminate the vanity area. Neutral tiles match the floor tiling and create a backsplash strip over the white countertop. Traditional wood cabinets are the framework for the timeless, polished look.
TriplePoint Design Build cleverly fashioned a small, out-of-the-way area to disguise the toilet for their Art Deco-style master bathroom redo. A medicine cabinet and a decorative flower arrangement in white complete the look.
Crisp, clean lines and neutral colors dominate this small traditional powder room. The pedestal sink and toilet fade into a plain white wainscot, while a mirrored medicine cabinet, traditional fixtures and glass doorknobs serve as additional accents.
A floating double vanity with sleek styling and a white finish is topped by twin medicine cabinets in this gray-and-white, contemporary master bathroom. Marble floor tile laid in a herringbone pattern complements white subway tile on the walls, forming a clean color palette that's crisp and modern.
Penny tile provides a great texture in this bright, double vanity bathroom. A black marble countertop contrasts the light blue walls and ceiling and white cabinetry. The mounted medicine cabinet mirrors are trimmed with a traditional white border, and contemporary mounted light fixtures spread even lighting over both sinks.
Graphic blue-and-white floor tiles wow in this small bathroom design. The tiling continues up the bathtub wall, seamlessly connecting the two together. A gray-and-white shower curtain with a tree pattern and a small, floating vanity with a mirrored medicine cabinet finish the contemporary look.
This neutral bathroom features a simple white pedestal sink paired with a small medicine cabinet. Tan grasscloth wallpaper covers the walls, while marble tiles line the shower. An Aubrey Hepburn print hangs above the toilet, adding a vintage touch to the space.
Square brown, white, beige and grey mosaic tiles have been used on the walls and around the bathtub in this small bathroom. An arched mirror, medicine cabinet, pedestal sink and toilet are also in the room. In the shower, two built-in shelves providing plenty of storage.
Despite its small stature, this guest bath has a ton of storage: a floating cupboard, medicine cabinet and a vanity with drawers offer plenty of room for towels and travel-sized products. Meanwhile, a quartz topper and white-painted wood paneling infuse the space with some history and charm.
Sleek and sophisticated, this bathroom is the epitome of contemporary style. Neutral tones are soothing and timeless, as is the white marble used for the sink. Having a vanity without cabinets makes the space feel larger; the medicine cabinet mirror provides storage space. Thin-striped walls are a stylistic complement to the large-tiled wall behind the sink and commode.
Eastern-medicine student Stacy Kon remodeled the inefficient master bathroom of her Los Angeles home into this relaxing retreat every bit as spa-like as the spaces in which she practices one of her passions: acupuncture. A lover of all things blue, Stacy chose a refreshing shade of robin's-egg blue for the walls and ceilings, a good match with the white subway tile. A large rain shower head is mounted above the oversized tub, and a glass shower partition installed on a swivel bracket swings back flush with the back wall when the shower is not in use. When the shower is in use, the glass partition keeps spray from the showerhead contained within the soaking tub. Rather than extending the white tile for use on the floors, vanity and tub surround, Stacy opted for custom, cool gray concrete poured into forms made to size. Dark wood cabinets provide visual contrast to the light blues and grays.
