Beauty is often in the eye of the beholder, and there’s no exception when it comes to designing a beautiful bathroom.
A new bathroom design should be beautiful to the user first and foremost. In many cases that user is you, but there are certain elements you can keep in mind when remodeling a guest bath, children’s bathroom, powder room, or a bathroom in a home you plan to resell, in order to keep those spaces universally appealing.
There are many different bathroom styles you can use for inspiration, or you can create your own beautiful bath style. A unique or challenging space offers an opportunity to come up with original designs and innovative solutions. As you browse the following Case Design/Remodeling bathrooms, make note of your favorite elements of each. Which design ideas do you envision in your own new beautiful bath?
Elements of a beautiful bath
What it takes to create a beautiful bathroom is different for everyone, but one element most beautiful baths share is that they offer a relaxing experience inside an inviting space.
Warm and inviting
Hard bathroom surfaces can look and feel cold, but they don’t have to. Mood lighting and warm colors can soften the look and smaller spaces have a lot of potential for easy heating solutions that can keep baths feelings as warm as they look.
This smaller bathroom makes excellent use of space and light to create a warm and inviting look. Overhead lighting can be harsh and overbearing, but between the skylights and vanity lighting in this room, there’s no need for any overheads. Extra mirrors help make the room look bigger, while natural warm tones keep the space contemporary and neutral.
As you’ll see in all of these bathrooms, quality materials contribute a great deal toward an appealing bathroom.
Plenty of natural stone tile and accent details steal the show in this beautiful master bathroom. Travertine subway tiles with a greenish cast combine with marble slab and porcelain squares to create depth and texture. The luxury soaking tub and details like the brass fixtures create a touch of elegance.
A closer look at the shower reveals the detail and beauty of the tile work. Customizations like the marble slab bench help create a relaxing experience. Porcelain, glass, marble, and travertine tiles are all used here to create a stylish shower.
A relaxing experience
A bathroom gets used multiple times a day, so why not make it place you want to spend some time in? Luxury amenities like steam showers and soaking tubs transform the bathroom into an oasis and retreat in a spa-style setting.
You can have your choice of steam shower or deep soak in this beautiful master bath, or enjoy a cool rinse in the shower after a hot bath. Bright white wainscot tile keeps the space clean and bright while contrasting the bold wall color.
Basic vanity storage simply isn’t enough in many bathrooms these days. Some master baths double as a closet or dressing room with built in drawers, shelves, and wardrobes. Guest baths need space to store plenty of towels and linens, while kids’ bathrooms need organizational solutions for everything from bath toys to laundry. Regardless of the bathroom, good storage keeps the space looking neat, clean, and clutter free.
Stylish cabinetry is another way to create a beautiful bathroom. There’s plenty of storage for towels, linens, body products and more, with floor to ceiling cabinetry that’s custom designed for the space.
A larger vanity provides extra storage and countertop space. Glass cabinet fronts create a safe, dust-free place for both design accents and medicine cabinet items on the shelves inside.
Not every bathroom enjoys the luxury of natural light, but if you’ve got it you can use it to help create natural beauty in the bathroom.
A soaking tub with great views will have you sipping wine in the bathtub at sunset on a regular basis. A privacy curtain still allows plenty of light through the top of the window and adds a nice design accent to the room. The natural light works perfectly with the subtle paint and simple glass accessories to create a very cheerful yet refined bathroom.
A beautiful feeling.
A good bathroom needs to do a lot more than just look pretty. It needs to feel good too. Aesthetically pleasing bathrooms also need to have a comfortable place to unwind, a functional design, and amenities the user will truly appreciate.
A stunning guest bath like this one may encourage your friends and relatives to take up permanent residence in your home.
A gas fireplace inside the bathroom keeps your bones warm and the floor dry.
