Are decorating or redecorating a bathroom? Here are some vanity and countertop ideas to get your “inner designer” inspired.

Sometimes luxury simply means a sense of intimacy in a room. By placing this footed bath right in the middle of his-and-hers vanities, we know this certainly isn’t the guest bath. It’s a romantic little reminder this space has been customized for a couple who owns it. Beautiful exposed plumbing can look stunning against marble flooring, and soft romantic lighting will cast a warm glow.

For those of us who want more modern luxury, this bath shows off clean lines and lofty ceilings punctuated by beautiful details like lighter flooring choice and arch over the shower. This bathroom is simple and goes to show that you don’t need a lot of different things in a bathroom to make it luxurious.

Contrary to what they say, size doesn’t always matter. When it comes to luxury, the materials can make up for lack of space. A smaller powder room can be done up in high style with the right combination of textiles.  Use a chandelier for lighting with a custom cabinetry which will make the the whole room feel rich in design.

Use some of these ideas to get your design juices flowing and create a bathroom you’ll love to get ready for the day in.


Spruce up Your Bathroom

Remodeling or updating a bathroom is one of the best ways to increase the value of your home. Even small changes, such as replacing lighting or do-it-yourself tile, will yield big returns. Here are a few design ideas to turn your blah bathroom into something fabulous.

Vessel sinks are gaining in popularity due to their high-end look and increasingly affordable prices. There are literally thousands of styles and materials available including porcelain, glass, stone, copper and even polished wood. Before selecting a vessel sink, measure carefully to ensure that there is ample clearance at the front and back of your vanity to accommodate the vessel’s bowl.

Make a small bath feel more spacious by replacing the vanity cabinet with a pedestal sink. If you have a lot of toiletries, you’ll need to add shelving elsewhere in the room to make up for lost storage.

If your bathroom is short on storage, add wall shelves above the toilet. They’ll keep toiletries within reach while providing a place to display a few decorative accessories.

Trim molding is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to quickly update the look of any bathroom. Add timeless appeal with wide crown and baseboard molding or install a chair rail, beadboard or paneled wainscot for a charming update.

Just as the right accessories finish your outfit, the perfect tile will rev up the look of your bathroom. Whether you choose sleek glass or opt for rustic natural stone, new tile will add architectural interest, color and texture.

Bathrooms can easily be cold and boring, but by adding color you can make them warm and exciting. Check out the following designs and see if we can inspire you.

Use wallpaper! By keeping the trim, tub and fixtures in this room neutral, there’s room to have fun with bright pink, graphic wallpaper and modern accessories.

Use shades of blue glazed ceramic tiles. With a backsplash like this, a simple, modern sink and sleek vanity are all this room needs to look bright and polished.

Painting inside the drawers of this vanity cabinet with bold citrine adds a dose of the unexpected to this black-and-white bathroom.
