The kids' bathroom was updated to be bright and durable without breaking the budget. The gray vanity helps to break up the white tile, and the brass fixtures add a subtle bit of warmth. The flooring was a splurge since the homeowner loved it, but the budget was balanced using simple subway tile on the walls.
Bright, Contemporary Bathroom With Sea Green Wall Paint and White Fixtures
If you're looking for a spa-like feeling, try muted greens with more gray undertones than white. This color is fresh, understated and really evokes a feeling of cleanliness. Skip popular kid tones like pink and blue, and instead try shades of aloe which work well in spaces for boys and girls alike.
Almost invisible glass shower walls create a seamless view through the picturesque window from the rest of the bathroom and the soaker tub. A sleek double vanity pairs dark wood with charcoal gray countertops, and open cubbies keep towels handy.

Jessica Helgerson uses Daltile in a 3 x 6 white brick and chooses a thin-set rather than a thicker setting bed to cover the walls in this bathroom. For added detailing, she drops the ceiling around the exposed-leg vanity to create a little niche. The floor is a limestone hexagon pattern that adds visual interest.
Frosted Glass Divider Provides Privacy in Open Bathroom
SPG Architects’ Casa Torcida, located in the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica, uses rich woods and a soft palette in the bathroom, reflecting the abundant flora and fauna native to the property. A frosted glass divider separates the toilet from the rest of the space, which features a jetted tub and an open wood vanity with double sinks. The house is completely “off the grid,” using a water-reclamation system to retain rainwater for use throughout the house. In addition, the house has a solar hot water system, which provides hot water for most of the year.
Small Yet Striking Bathroom With Herringbone Tile Walls
Originally constructed in 1909, this small master bathroom could not be expanded in terms of space. By embracing dark, moodier colors and installing gleaming tile surfaces and chrome finishes, the room was given a larger personality.
Marble Tiles Make Impact in Contemporary Powder Room
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.
