Contemporary White and Blue Bathroom with White Marble Shelves and Baskets
Remove the shades from sconces in order to streamline the style and the space, says Ili Hidalgo-Nilsson, architect and designer with Terracotta Design Build in Atlanta. Then, instead of a cabinet, use fancy open shelves with baskets to hold toiletries and corral clutter.
As this 6-foot-by-7-foot Atlanta bathroom demonstrates, sometimes bold color is all you need to make a big statement. Although this space receives no natural light, the bold Kelly green walls give it fresh personality. The ultra-white floor and wainscoting counterbalance the green's intensity.
Deep earth tones, layered textures and interesting finishes set this small, contemporary bathroom apart. Artful pendants hang before a backsplash of charcoal-hued square tiles. A vessel sink rests atop a thick floating vanity, while wood flooring brings a casual, relaxed overall vibe to the space.
Contemporary Master Bath With Multipurpose Shelving
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.”
This jewel box of a bathroom sits adjacent to a swimming pool, so water inspired the palette and design. The white porcelain wall tiles feature a smooth, wave pattern. On the floating vanity, the blue glossy finish is a marine gel coat applied in many layers.
A shell pink mirror lends an edge of fun to this small, contemporary powder room. Throughout the house, pale earth tones and contemporary accessories and art showcase the homeowners' fun and playful personalities. The estate-size home rests on 30 acres beside a Connecticut lake.
Contemporary Powder Room with Mosaic Tile Focal Point
A playful, curvy mosaic tile design adds both texture and graphic interest to this contemporary powder room. The luxury Miami Beach estate, known as Terra Veritatis, features close attention to detail throughout.
A Chevron Black and White Shower Curtain Adds Whimsy to the Bath
Black and white is a great choice for a small bathroom because these colors can serve to enlarge the space. Here, Pure Interiors Design kept the black tones to a minimum by employing it solely in the shower curtain as the focal point in the room. White tiles walls, simple fixtures and a large mirror with a beveled inset complete this pristine look.
As seen on HGTV's Love It or List It Too, Jillian's beach inspired design continues into the bathroom. The flamingo wallpaper gives the space a vacation feel, while the white mirror and vanity and contemporary lighting gives the space the contemporary design of the rest of the house.
Small, Contemporary Bathroom With Graphic Pattern Wallpaper and Complimentary Graphic Owl Artwork
A gold mirror adds a reflective touch over the vanity in this small bathroom. A framed graphic owl picture compliments the style of the graphic pattern on the gray and white wallpaper. A small vase of yellow flowers adds a touch of color and sweetness to the crisp design.
Gray and White Contemporary Bathroom with Open Shelves over the Tub
Don’t ignore small spaces! A shelf is the perfect solution to storage scarcity in smaller bathrooms. Place one over the tub for towels, candles or shower gel or near the toilet for spare toilet paper and hand towels. Designer Karina Bryant of K_Souki Design Studio has a set of shelves wired for music or a TV hookup for bath time relaxation in her home, built by Imery Group.
