Ashe marble floors and walls create a streamlined look for this luxe master bathroom. The large walk-in shower beautifully contrasts against the walls with dark gray tiling and features dual rainfall shower heads.
A dark wood vanity anchors the otherwise pale, subdued palette of this contemporary bathroom. Large-format floor tiles make an engaging contrast with the small, thin backsplash mosaic tiles that extend up to the ceiling.
Employ simple DIY tricks for upmarket style that saves a pretty penny. Atlanta designer Nancy Keenan took pieces of one-by-six lumber and nailed them into place behind the standalone tub to mimic judges’ paneling, a more expensive architectural detail that can be bought in sheets. After cutting the lumber, nail the pieces onto your wall in squares or rectangles. Paint them all a semi-gloss color to create a stylish accent wall.
Relax away what ever the day may bring in the white marble soaking tub in this modern white bathroom. Soft pendant lighting brightens the bowl sink and the white subway tile backsplash. The refreshing bamboo inspired wallpaper add even more texture to the room.
The newly created foyer is complete with a spacious guest bathroom. Plumbing, from the original kitchen, was refitted to accommodate the bathroom leaving room in the budget for Jen to get creative on the design.
Quartz counters and a built-in undermount sink maximize the space in this small bathroom. Shuttered doors keep the plumbing and personal items stowed away while open shelves are the perfect spot for easy to reach towels.
A monogrammed shower curtain by Ballard Designs adds a personal touch to this bathroom featuring a pedestal sink. Pedestal sinks have a polished, streamlined look. They don’t take up much space, making them a favorite for smaller bathrooms.
Bathroom remodels often don’t bring the highest returns simply because they’re expensive to begin with, but if you’re adding a second bath where you only had one before — or if you’re operating in a hot real estate market — remodeling can be a very smart move. Jan Goldman, owner of renovation and design firm Kitchen Elements, has a tip for creating space: no windows over tubs. “Who needs a window in the bath that you’ll never open?” she says. “It’s a design flaw that many builders indulge in. Typically, if you move the window somewhere else, the floor space will open up.” In this bath, that move created room for more than nine feet of prime counter space.
