We’ve all heard the saying that kitchens and bathrooms sell houses. The home decorator’s ultimate challenge is to create a bathroom that meets your practical needs but also makes the property stand out. While there is no right or wrong there are some general tips that can make this task easier.
Let’s take a look at how you can create a stylish yet functional bathroom.
Consider the theme of the house. I often keep the common areas of the house fairly neutral and decorate with colour and art that can be easily updated as my taste changes but the bathroom is an opportunity to play with bolder design. If there is a common theme that runs throughout the house, then vamp it up in the bathroom and have fun with the theme. For instance, the vintage mid-century modern theme is huge right now, so consider making some small design tweaks to create a mid century modern bathroom remodel.
A beautiful trend right now is timber feature walls, use timer look tiles or even wall paper to bring instant organic warmth. Other popular finishes are concrete and texture look wall paper.
If you’re renting and can’t apply any permanent changes or looking for a quick easy way to give your bathroom a facelift consider adding decorative art. You can even have a go at some simple DIY bathroom wall art.
Updating the shower curtain is a high impact, quick and easy bathroom decor fix. While some people generally prefer shower screens, I love having a shower curtain in our second bathroom because it makes it easy for me to help my little ones with controlling taps. Shower curtains have come a long way, there are so many beautiful prints to choose from at bargain prices. These make good accent pieces, use them to introduce new bold colors or patterns in plain white bathrooms.
If you have a pedestal sink consider adding a stylish vanity to beautifully store all your essentials. Back when I was renting I couldn’t make the big renovations I do on bathrooms now. I bought the Ronnskar wash basin shelf from Ikea to create a modern bathroom vanity with a makeup area.
In my current guest bathroom renovation I’ve customised a mid-century modern cabinet that I bought for $40 second hand to make a unique vanity. I’ll add before and after photos when the renovation is complete! Vanity units and shelves can be very decorative and add to the look of the room.
Arc and circle mirrors are very on trend right now and are a relatively simple way to update a bathroom. Mirrors are a fantastic hack to make the bathroom feel larger, if you have a small bathroom consider installing a full length mirror to lengthen the room. In larger bathrooms, add a free standing mirror with a bold frame for instant glam. A feature I’m planning to add in our master bathroom is two big beautiful upcycled dressing table mirrors.
A simple bathroom design tip that helps with small bathroom makeovers on a budget is to use a ladder for a towel rack. Check out second hand listings in your area to get a rustic wooden ladder to upcycle.
Functionality is key when designing and decorating bathrooms. The layout should work well for those who use it. Think of access to power points, storage for products and electrical items and how the room will be used. Most families consider a double basin in the master bathroom essential, but also consider master bath designs with walk in shower. This simple, practical feature is often overlooked but can be a deal maker for the elderly and mum’s handling small bubs in the shower.
I’m a compulsive DIY’er, recently I finished another bathroom remodel and have learnt to tile, re-level floors, waterproof and a little bit of carpentry (woodwork / cabinet making). It’s amazing what you can learn on youtube 🙂
In this article I’ll focus on cosmetic renovations. This is where the bones of the bathroom are left untouched.
1. Bathroom Theme / Style/ Design
The first step is getting a solid design theme & plan. This will help identify what you can keep from your current bathroom. If you’re on a tight budget there are some awesome products to refinish and paint tubs, cabinetry and tiles.
Take a look at this post for some bathroom styling ideas such as trends in mirrors and vanities.
2. Plan the remodel and check if you will need to hire tradies
To plan your trades start by looking at the layout of your bathroom. Good bathroom design and functionality helps sell houses. Keeping the drainage and plumbing in the same position will save you thousands but its worth hiring tradies if the flow of your bathroom doesn’t work.
I called in a plumber to make some minor adjustments to the water outlet placements for the shower. On beginning my bathroom renovation I realised my beautiful vintage-industrial style shower required a separate hot & cold water outlets where the taps are.
For DIY plumbing tips this article may be useful. I describe how to change from separate wash basin taps to a single mixer. It’s easier than you think!
3. Demolition & replacing cabinetry
If you have cabinetry thats simple and in good condition then it can be saved but replacing the cabinet and using a modern basin can have a big impact on the overall feel.
Cabinet paint is a durable, low cost way to update and freshen-up cabinets. I’ve used white, high-gloss cabinet paint in a kitchen renovation and the results were fantastic. The original cabinets were melamine and the bottom edge of the doors were chipped and damaged. My budget and timeline wouldn’t accommodate ripping them out and replacing. I used a jigsaw to trim about 1cm off the bottom of the doors, the cabinet doors overlapped the opening so luckily this didn’t compromise the overall look.
In my most recent bathroom makeover I saved on renovating costs by upcycling a cabinet. I bought it second hand for $40 and made curvy mid-century style legs. I had also looked at buying stylish furniture legs online such as these but wanted to create something unique. I also sanded back and stained the cabinet with mahogany wood stain then finished with a high gloss varnish.
Above bench basins are really popular right now but don’t make the mistake I made and use a high edge basin on a standard height bench-top. I feel like I need a stepping stool to wash my hands!
4. Painting tiles
I have used White knight tile paint previously that has worked out well but preparation is key!
First clean the tiles well, but to be honest, when you are sanding back the tiles and grout a lot of this surface gets removed anyway.
Sand the tiles. This step is crucial in making the paint stick. If you have smooth glossy tiles and your sand papering efforts fail to roughen up the surface then you’re bound for disappointment. I plan to write an in depth article on this with my experiences and while tools worked the best for me, stayed tuned and I’ll link it here when published.
Clean the tiles again, removing any dust, soap residue or other contaminants. If there is any spots where mould has been growing, treat them with bleach.
Apply the primer. Stir the tile priming paint well before using. Paint the corners first with a paint brush (cutting in) then coat the remainder with a small paint roller. For cutting in I always use a tapered brush like this. Most brands require 4 hours dry time before applying the colour coat.
Apply the top coat. To ensure an even cover apply the first coat in a horizontal pattern with the roller then the second coat in a vertical direction.
In the above bathroom I painted the floor tiles, this worked well because the floor tiles were textured. I would not recommend painting smooth, glossy floor tiles as I just dont think the paint will adhere well enough to the surface to last constant traffic.
5. Replace taps and faucets
After the tiles are painted and the cabinets have been replaced or painted its time to update the taps & faucets. Step away from traditional chrome and consider ‘old-gold’ shades of brass or rose gold. Black tap-ware is going out of style but considering how easy it is to change taps & faucets, there is no harm in going with this trend until you get sick of it! Just choose the shower faucet with caution, if the shower outlets need to be tailored to the tap-ware then it will be a pain to fix as the tiles will need to be removed for a plumber to change the layout of the pipes.
6. Painting the bathroom walls & ceiling
What kind of paint should you use in a bathroom?
The bathroom is a high humidity environment so it’s important to use paint that suites the conditions. Paints with a higher sheen are easier to clean and remove mould or staining for high humidity environments such as bathrooms.
The image below shows the finish or levels of sheen in paint. Flat paint has no shine, it has an even matt finish and absorbs rather than reflects light. When you run your hands over a flat painted finish it feels slightly rough and textured compared to a smooth gloss paint. Matte, eggshell, satin, semi-gloss and high gloss have increasing levels of sheen and durability.
What paint to use on bathroom walls?
Use a eggshell or satin finish paint for bathroom walls as this is more durable than lower sheen paints. The more textured (lower sheen) the paint, the more it will tend to trap moisture and tend to stain.
Note: If your bathroom has mould or damp issue then it’s vital to improve the ventilation with a good exhaust fan. This is inexpensive and help reduce the humidity and prevent mould.
What paint to use on the bathroom ceiling?
Matt paint is the standard for ceilings in all areas of the house except the bathroom. In most rooms there is no need for the durability of glossier paints and a flat finish will help light spread evenly throughout the space without reflecting or creating glare. However, for bathroom paint longevity, select a paint finish that has a slight sheen such as satin finish or eggshell as the humidity can lead to staining of the paint.
If you do choose a flat/ matt finish it just means you may have to re-paint the ceiling in a few years to keep the space looking fresh. As a DIYer, painting ceilings is one of my least favourite jobs so in my opinion its best to use the most durable products from the beginning.
7. Finishing touches for your bathroom remodel
You’ve done all the hard work, and now it’s time for the fun part. Decorating involves all the non-permanent touches like mirrors, plants, artwork and beautiful things! Make sure each piece ties in with your original vision and in small spaces keep the decor functional to prevent clutter.
Bathroom decorating tips
Find a unique container for organising toothbrushes, lotions and potions
Light the mirror with pendants for effective task lighting. Take a look at this post for more on the 3 types of lighting.
Dont forget the floor, for an eclectic theme try a vintage Turkish rug, for a beachy / coastal style try a floor mat in a natural jute or if you’ve gone Hamptons look for shades of blue and interesting patterns.
Towel racks. Instead of going for a basic towel rail consider a towel ladder or if space is limited, interesting industrial looking towel hooks.
Shelving. To keep surfaces clutter free install open shelves with stylish boxes and containers to keep hairdryers, straighteners and annoying cords out of sight.
White is one of the colors that most people think of when they imagine having a white bathroom. It’s certainly no surprise that there are so many white bathroom fixtures and accessories available today. If you are planning on remodeling your bathroom or are just looking for some ideas for how to decorate your current bathroom, then take a look at these ideas and many more that will help you create a beautiful bathroom in any color of the rainbow.

You’ll find that white bathrooms will work with all different types of flooring, tile, and wall coverings. When you are looking at all of the different options for your walls and tiles, you should definitely see if they are all painted white. If they aren’t then you’ll need to find white bathroom tiles that match the tiles and walls perfectly. You can purchase these tiles at just about any home improvement store in your area or online.
When you use white in your small bathroom, you can add in just about any color you’d like to make it your own. If you want to add in more of a modern look to your bathroom, you can do so by using white bathroom furniture. It doesn’t matter what kind of furniture you have in your bathroom because it can be changed or updated at any time. You can change the furniture to a contemporary style or a more traditional one simply by purchasing new fixtures and vanities, new faucets, shower heads, toilets, mirrors, and more.
A great way to decorate your white bathrooms is to make sure you have nice tiles. You can purchase white marble tiles to install in your bath area. They will give you a marble look and feel, while still being very practical. Other kinds of marble tiles that you can also use in your bath are porcelain tiles. These are made from very durable materials so they can withstand a lot of use.
One other great idea for your white bathrooms is to use wallpaper. This can give your walls a nice clean look while still giving off a light colored appearance. Some wallpapers can actually be installed right onto your walls. You can buy them in any size and shape you want or even have one custom made to fit your exact measurements. Custom wallpapers are definitely one of the best white bathroom ideas around.
Another popular way to decorate your white bathrooms is by using white tiles. Tiles come in many different shapes and sizes. They look beautiful when they are shiny and polished. Some tiles also have patterns on them so it is easy to match your tiles to your overall theme. When you are using white bathroom ideas in your bathroom suite, it is easy to find accessories to help pull everything together.
When you are choosing your tile and fixture choices it is important to choose the right ones for your bathroom. If you have a smaller bathroom, you do not have to get huge decorative tiles. Instead you can opt for small clear glass tiles that will make your bathroom appear larger. If you have a large bathroom that needs a bit of a makeover you can get black tile, chrome tiles, or silver colored fixtures. Whatever color and style you choose for your bathroom, it will look amazing once it is finished.
Another idea for your contemporary bathroom suite is to add some contemporary accessories to the bath. Items such as towel racks, soap dishes, or toothbrush holders can all be used to dress up your bathroom’s. A unique towel rack can be an item that is a big feature for any bathroom. Most people only use towels when they need them, but some people like to have extra towels laying around the house. By using a unique towel rack you can create an entire bathroom set that looks beautiful.
Bathroom interior decorating ideas are a great way to add the finishing touches to your new bathroom. With the variety of bathrooms available today, you need not have to worry about matching colors and styles. A bathroom can be designed around any particular theme or taste. One can easily go in for classy, antique or modern designs depending on the available space and your personal preferences. If you have decided to design the entire washroom yourself, here are some tips that can help you in transforming your bathroom into a soothing, calming and inspiring haven.
First and foremost before beginning the process of designing the washroom you must first ensure adequate space to move around. The size of the washroom plays an important role in determining how much you can add to it and how much you can squeeze in. Remember that the space which is available to you should also allow you to get dressed and undress comfortably without bumping into obstacles. The floor space should also be sufficient to allow you to move around without any trouble.
Before you set out to buy bath fixtures, cabinets, sinks and tiles you should plan where you will be using them. Do you need a place to keep your bathroom accessories? You can opt for a built in vanity unit. The floor space can be used for installing bathroom rugs and mats. Can you install a storage cabinet underneath the tub? This would free up additional floor space which can be used for other purposes.
If you are thinking of installing a bath, you can look for a tub that has a built in shower as this would save space. You can also opt for small bathtubs which can be placed in corners. Corner bathtubs are highly recommended by most experts because they take up minimum floor space. These corner bathtubs can be heated and are very convenient to use. Bathroom interior design ideas like adding the tub to the existing bath or vice versa can help you save a lot of space.
Another important aspect of designing the bath area is the door. It is important that you select a door that follows the contours of the entire bath area and blends with the decor. Bathroom interior doors should be made of tempered glass so that they can withstand high temperatures and are water tight. Bathroom doors should also be made of durable material so that they do not break easily. If you are looking for a more stylish door, you can go in for designer doors. They are available in plenty and add that extra touch of style to the bathroom.
Bathrooms can get cluttered very quickly if you are not careful about how you arrange your towels and other items. There are plenty of interior design tips which suggest placing items in a clear circular pattern. This is a great way to utilize the limited space available in the bath area. The towel racks can be used to hold a variety of towel sizes and colors.
If you have a large bath area, you can create a unique bath experience by using the wall space to divide it into smaller areas. For instance, you can create an alcove by grouping the shower cubicles. Another effective way of maximizing the available space in the bath area is by installing a walk in bath. In this type of bath, you do not have to worry about standing in a long line to take a shower as there is a small entrance which allows you to step inside without stepping out of the bath.
When it comes to decorating the bath area, it does not require a lot of money. All you need is a bit of imagination, creativity and personal taste. You will be amazed at the wonderful transformation your bath can make. The interior design tips that you read here will help you make the best possible choices regarding the bath that you want to buy and to create a unique experience for your guests as well.
Modern Bathroom is a leading California-based supplier and retailer of functional, stylish and contemporary bathroom furniture and accessories, focusing on both classic and modern bathrooms. Founded by Richard H. Rubler, Modern Bathroom was originally formed as a restroom cabinet company in 1970. Today, it sells a full range of fully customizable bathroom essentials including vanity units, cabinets, showers, pedestal units, washstands and more, made from the highest quality materials and engineered with ergonomic solutions and styling. Modern Bathroom’s products are sold through leading distributors and retailers worldwide.
Modern bathrooms are no longer just about a toilet and a tub. They have become an opportunity to show off your unique personality, whether you choose a contemporary look, sleek lines, or a rustic country look. You can achieve the look of modern bathrooms by adding the right accessories and furniture. The vanity unit, for example, is one of the most important components of your modern bathroom. A well-designed vanity unit with enough storage space to store all of your bathroom necessities, including your makeup, shaving equipment and other items, as well as sufficient lighting for you, your guests and yourself will make your bathroom an attractive one.
Aside from a good vanity unit, you should also invest in other bathroom accessories. A well-placed showerhead faucet can be a great addition to modern bathrooms, especially those with an exposed ceiling. A high-quality showerhead faucet with an ample spray head is also essential. Choose one with different sprays for you and your guests, depending on their skin type and the water supply in your home.
Other accessories that are often overlooked when designing modern bathrooms include the wash basin and the bath tub. You don’t have to spend a fortune in order to have the perfect wash basin. You should instead invest in a durable porcelain or stainless steel one that will stand the test of time and frequent use. You may also want to invest in a pedestal or drop-in bath tub to complement your wash basin. Although both materials are relatively inexpensive, you still have to consider the fact that porcelain and stainless steel are prone to corrosion over time, especially if they are made out of metal and are not finished with a waterproof sealant. Ceramic basins, on the other hand, are resistant to corrosion, but can be more expensive.
Another thing that modern bathrooms need to have are cabinets, shelves and other storage spaces. If you’re lacking in the bathroom cabinet space that you would require, you should invest in wall-mounted storage units instead. In case you do not have a lot of space to spare, you should invest in modular storage containers that you can place in the corners of the room. These are perfect for small bathrooms because they won’t take up a lot of room, which can be a problem if you have a small vanity area. Alternatively, you could go for vanity cabinets made out of mirrors, like a frame made out of one and covered in glass. You can also install hooks and shelves on the walls as well as the ceiling to keep your towels neatly stored away.
Corollas and spouts are great accessories for modern bathrooms and will help you get the water from the toilet up to the level of the sink easily. As far as vanities are concerned, try to find those that are made out of glass, as it is more resistant to scratching and damage. A word of caution though; if you want a more modern look, you should go for chrome vanities rather than iron ones. Iron vanities, in particular, are very susceptible to rusting, so you will have to spend extra money to protect them. For those who want to give their bathroom a more classic look, you can opt for marble vanities instead. It is important to note though that marble is a softer material than glass, so it will not be as durable.
Wall tiles are very popular fixtures in modern bathrooms. The benefit of tile work well in bathrooms is that it is very inexpensive and easy to install. But you need to make sure that you get quality tiles, preferably travertine tiles as they look very stylish and are available at a low price. Mirrors too play an important role in bathrooms and you can choose from a variety of styles such as wall hung, wall mounted, wall inset or a vanity top. Ceramic tile work well in modern bathrooms and you can use them on both the floors and walls. However, you should make sure that you get colored tiles for the walls as well as the ceilings.
When planning for your bathroom’s layout, remember that you should always try to keep the floor-level shower and bath area to a minimum. It is a bad idea to put a large vanity unit or wash basin on the floor-level as it will make the room look cramped. Also remember to install the hand-held shower heads and taps at the same height so that you don’t have to stoop or stand to wash your hands.
Bathroom interior design is not as easy as it looks. It takes a lot of planning and hard work to make your bathroom look aesthetically pleasing. Before embarking on any kind of renovation, you should first have an idea about the theme and color scheme of your home. The theme will help you decide on the right paint color, flooring, lighting, fixtures, accessories and furniture that will compliment your bathroom. If you do not have a theme yet, you can go for bold and exciting colors such as lime green, red, yellow and orange to brighten up your bathroom.
The primary thing that you should consider is the color of the walls. You can choose from a wide array of colors like white, beige, cream, ivory, mauve, rose-red, maroon and blue. The best thing about these walls is that they are easily available in all shades. You can also spice up this color palette by using textures like wallpaper, curtains, blinds and tiles. You can also use rugs and mats on the floors to enhance the visual appeal of your bathroom.
Bathroom walls need to be water proof so that they can withstand heavy showers and splashes. Therefore, you should avoid paints with glossy finish or those with high levels of acid. You can also choose light colors like ivory, beige, cream and grey. These wallpapers can be used along with tiles that display beautiful water effects like waves, swirls and glows. If your bathroom design lacks in privacy, you can choose a wallpaper that displays textured designs like gradients, checkers or waves.
There are several things that you should keep in mind while renovating your bathroom. First of all, your walls must be moisture proof and water proof. You can apply either wallpaper or paint to your walls to enhance their appearance. The bathroom interior design must also include a shower curtain. These curtains help to protect your bath from dirt and water.
Bathroom cabinets are essential to store personal care products and hygiene products. You can choose corner cabinets or regular ones. Corner cabinets are great for space saving, as they do not consume much space. You should ensure that the colors of the cabinets to match those of your bath. You can add mirrors to enhance their appearance. Mirrors help you get a good view of yourself while bathing.
Another important aspect of bathroom is its storage space. You should choose cabinets that have flexible and adjustable drawers. Bathroom cabinets that display mirrors will make the bathrooms appear larger than they actually are. You can use shelves and cabinets to store towels, washcloths, toilet paper, cosmetics, shampoos, conditioners, soaps, hair sprays, conditioners and bath sponges. You can choose cabinets that have open shelving and doors to improve the beauty of the bathrooms.
Bathroom interior design ideas include putting in a bath tub or a whirlpool bath. You can choose a bathtub with massaging jets to ease stress and muscle pains. A whirlpool bath can be a very soothing experience. It also adds to the luxurious feel of the bathroom.
You can use lighting to highlight the bathing area and the bathing space. Light has the ability to make a space look bigger and brighter. You can use dimmers for the lights so you can adjust them according to your needs and mood.
Another factor you must consider is the type of paint or wallpaper to be used. You should choose wallpaper that will blend well with the other items in the bathroom. There are many types of designs available, so you should not have any problem in selecting one. You can browse through various home decorating catalogs to get an idea about the wallpaper and paint options. You should choose a wallpaper that adds to the design and texture of the bathroom.
Bathroom design ideas are endless when you plan it carefully. You just need to know the right colors, design patterns and textures to suit your needs. You can also choose the right furniture, rugs and towels to go with the design theme. The bath area can also be decorated to suit the theme. Bathrooms with a tropical theme have trees with small blooming flowers on them.
To add to the beauty of the bathroom interior design, you should also pay attention to accessories. There are many types of decorative items that you can use to enhance the beauty of your bathroom. You can choose mirrors, soap dishes, towel racks, toothbrush holders, and towel coolers. You can even use beautifully painted pottery for the bathroom. It should be designed carefully and you should choose the items carefully to make the decorating a success.

You must consider your lifestyle before installing a whirlpool bathtub. This bathtub is suitable for older people, but it might cause a lot of hazards in the bathroom. If you have a small family, you should use shower enclosures instead of bathtubs. Moreover, if you have two or more people in your family, you should buy a showering enclosure so that the bathtub and shower head can take up less space.

For your farmhouse bathroom ideas, it is better to select the floor tiles and wall decoration for it. You should keep in mind that these walls will be the face of your bathroom. So, it is better to choose the right type of design. The selection of wall tiles depends on your taste. If you are a creative person, you can make your own wall tiles or select farmhouse wall tiles on your own.
Once you have selected the designs for the walls and flooring, you need to select the paint and other accessories in accordance with your farmhouse bathroom ideas. If you want a traditional or old-world look, you can opt for natural stones. If you want a modern or contemporary look, you can go for modern or metallic coloured tiles.
The material used for your wall and floor tiles should be resistant to water. Natural stones like limestone, and marble are good options. Limestone is water-resistant. Similarly, marble can withstand water. However, they are not at all appealing to the eyes. So, if you want to give an old world feel to your small bathroom, you can use these two materials.
If you have limited budget, you can opt for another option to get your small bathroom remodeled. You can go for vintage-inspired bathrooms. These vintage-inspired bathrooms have the features of old-fashioned farmhouse bathrooms. Some popular ideas for this type of design are painted farmhouse tiles, vintage accessories, and rustic-style fixtures and fittings. You can get the idea from antique stores, magazines, and the internet.
Your walls and floor can be painted in white. Alternatively, you can use a color that compliments the other elements of your farmhouse, like the tiles and the furnishings. Another idea is to use white tiles on the walls and the floors. If your farmhouse has a large ceiling, you can match the tiles to the ceiling or else you can choose a different color for your wall. For the floor, you can choose between tile and concrete.
Glass mirrors and hanging wall sconces are a great addition to a farmhouse aesthetic. The ideas can incorporate farmhouse China hutch, ceramic pots, and vintage figurines. If you want to add more rustic feeling to your room, you can add wooden planters and baskets on the walls. The use of rustic-chic finishes will complement your ideas.
For an authentic country feel, you can add reds, oranges, and browns to your walls, tiles, and fixtures. You can also add vintage figurines or paintings to the walls. If you have open floor plans, you can add a country feel by using natural accessories like wicker baskets filled with fresh flowers, greens, and herbs. In addition, adding ceramic pots in colorful designs will give a country feel to your interior design. Your kitchen can also be enhanced by the use of ceramic pots and dishes on your counter tops.
To finish your interior design, you can use a contemporary sink vanity and high pedestal stand in your open storage style bathroom. The wall sconces and mirror cabinets will enhance the contemporary look. Lastly, if you want to create an open storage style bathroom, you should install a floor standing pot rack on one wall with matching soap dish on the other wall. This way, there will be enough storage space without overcrowding the room.
If you have an existing room that is not used for bathing, you can replace it with your own unique farmhouse style. You can install a new floor standing bathtub with or without a running water supply. You can choose from an open shelf, a wall sconce, and a wall mounted shelf. The most popular type of farmhouse style bathtubs are the clawfoot tub and the double shower. For an authentic look, you can incorporate a vintage shower curtain.
To finish your bathroom feeling like a cabin, you should add touches like stone flooring, rough woods, and rustic wood flooring. You can also use wooden floors, a polished concrete floor, and a rug for warmth. If you do not want to deal with the messy plumbing, you can use a sealed surface with built in jets. Another idea is to use a hot sauna to achieve the spa like feeling. Add a small fireplace and you will have the perfect country western or Native American feel.
If you like the idea of a white and rustic theme, you will have to select fixtures that have a whitewash look to them. These include a chandelier, candelabra, wall sconce, and framed mirror with painted white doors. You can use white hand railing and matching light fixtures. You can add a few touches like decorative pillows made of faux leather or suede.
Bathroom ideas for modern homes are not hard to find. However, the biggest problem many homeowners run into is that they are simply too limited in what they can do. In order to make sure that you have the most creative designs possible, you need to be open to all ideas and possibilities. The last thing you want to do is settle on one of the many ideas simply because it does not fit in your space. This will leave you with a home that you don’t enjoy living in.
One great idea for a bathroom redesign is to replace your old shower head and bathtub with a glass wall shower. A glass wall shower can add a contemporary look and feel to any bathroom. It is also extremely easy to install. There are many different shapes and sizes to choose from. They come in modern, traditional and Victorian looks alike. These can easily be combined for a look that is unique to each homeowner.
For bathroom ideas for modern homes that do not involve an entire bathroom remodel, you may wish to think about changing your faucet. You can find a wide variety of different styles and finishes to choose from. Some people like the vintage look of a vintage faucet, while others want something with a modern flair. Choosing something unique and different may take some looking but the end result will be well worth it.
Another bathroom ideas for modern home owners is to change out your hardware. Many times, a bathroom can look dull and boring with outdated hardware. There are so many different options available that you should have no problem finding something that suits your individual taste. If you don’t feel like changing out your hardware, you can always invest in a few key pieces to spruce up your bathroom over time.

Are you looking for Half Bathroom Ideas? If so then you have come to the right place. A half bathroom, sometimes referred to as a powder room, is a small enclosed space with only a sink and toilet, no hot tub or additional bathing facilities, usually close to the front door of your house. As it is used very often by visiting guests, a half bathroom can be placed in a prominent location near the main entrance of your house for quick convenience. This type of bathroom can be decorated to create any sort of look you want, from contemporary to country, depending on the look you are going for. This type of bathroom can also be the perfect storage space for all those items that are left around the house, like hand towels and bath robes.
One of the most popular half bathroom ideas is a vanity with a small sink, toilet and mirror. This will give your room a very modern look. The vanity will also hide all the plumbing accessories like faucets and toilets that make a half bathroom appear a little cluttered. You can either use a classic style porcelain sink that has a “tea-stop” tap attached to it, or you can get a modern sink that has no tap, just a small hole for keeping the water inside.
Another option is to get a pedestal sink with a shelf for hanging clothes or even a tiny cabinet for storing accessories. These sinks are extremely modern and will make your room appear larger than it really is. There are plenty of half bathroom ideas that use shelves to keep all the accessories neat and organized. If you need more storage, you can always add some hooks and cabinets.
Many half bathroom ideas will include a large marble countertop with glass on one or both sides. With a large marble countertop, you’ll get the feel of a large room with a smaller bathroom. A large marble countertop with glass on both sides is ideal for a bathroom where a large mirror is needed. Even without a large mirror, you can still add a lot of elegance by having a marble splashback or a marble backsplash. The great thing about marble is that it’s available in so many different colors, designs and styles.
Many half bathroom ideas use wallpaper. While it’s nice to have your walls decorated with nice wallpaper, there’s nothing quite as refreshing as waking up to a blank wall or floor. Having a blank wall or floor in your bathroom gives your morning routine a free shot of artistic inspiration.
Wallpaper isn’t the only thing that can be used as a decoration in a half bathroom. If you’re short on space and you don’t want to use wallpaper, consider some decorative paint or stenciling. Wallpaper is a great addition, but it can become boring over time. Painted or stenciled surfaces are much more interesting and offer a lot more personality. Both wallpaper and stencils can become the center of your half bath or main bathroom’s theme.
Another popular idea for half bathrooms is to use an image source to decorate both the walls and floors. For instance, you could use a picture of a mountain or a beach to decorate one side of your small bathroom. Or, you might choose an abstract image such as an ocean, an abstract sunset, or an abstract snowflake for the walls in your half bathroom. This idea works best when you have a quiet, soothing color scheme and choose calming colors like off-white, ivory, or soft pink.
To make your small bathroom appear larger, consider using a rug, a patterned rug, or an image on the wall to define the shape of the room. Or, consider adding one of several textured wall prints or stencils to textured wall corners. Wallpaper can be difficult to apply to textured walls, so it is often better to choose a wall stencil that will fill up the space and give your walls a uniform look. As you can see, these half bathroom ideas are quite easy to implement, don’t require too much expense or work, and can really make your small bathroom seem like much more.
