Bathroom Design Ideas And Inspiration

Bathroom Ideas

White Modern Bathroom

When you think about white and modern, this is the kind of bathroom that comes to mind. Clean lines, white, and a few organic touches are all that’s needed. The shower disappears in the background thanks to continuous flooring and wall tile throughout the room.

Black Powder Room

White isn’t the only thing that you can use in a powder room. Dare to go dark by painting it black, but don’t forget to add colour with some beautiful art! Black is always classic and elegant.

Walk-In Shower with Pebble Tile

The pebble floor and column in this walk-in shower has a beach feel. Remember the last time washing the salt off of your skin by adding beach-inspired elements to your bathroom. Pebbles are a great way to start!

Fresh Traditional Bathroom

Wouldn’t you feel invigorated just walking in this beautifully fresh bathroom? Lots of white with a touch of green, tons of light with a bamboo roman shade; these all work together to make a nice, refreshing bathroom to wash the day off in.

Simple and Clean Traditional Bathroom

The soft blue-green is colourful enough to bring some joy, but not too far away from neutral that you will get tired of it quickly. The clean lines, simple shapes, and traditional touches of the faucet make this bathroom something that will stay classic for years to come.

Small Functional Bathroom

This small bathroom saves space with a pedestal sink and an alcove walk-in shower. The natural light from the window makes the difference here. The fun mosaic tile adds character and personality.

Minimal Spa Bathroom

Sometimes the essence of luxury isn’t in abundance but in the absence of what is not necessary. This bathroom with lots of open space is a great example of getting that spa feel with only what is needed. A simple freestanding tub, a classic marble countertop, and a refinished chandelier give this space all the character it needs.

Bathroom with Forest Wallpaper

This bathroom uses a bold black and white forest wallpaper. The use of lithographic and black and white art on the walls enhances the “etched” quality of this room. The small touches of blue brighten up the whole room.

Brass Tacks

The brass accents in this traditional bathroom bring warmth and colour. Metal finishes are quite trendy right now, and they never really go out of style. The mirror makes the room.

Bamboo Trellis Bathroom

This refreshing powder room makes a bold choice with this green bamboo trellis wallpaper. Accented with a fresh green window frame, bamboo blinds, and an elaborate mirror frame, this space is both eccentric and personal.

Waterfall Style Walk-In Shower

We’ve all dreamed of (and some of us have even experienced!) showering under a refreshing waterfall in a tropical forest. This luxurious walk-in shower has that feeling of a special little grotto on some private tropical island, with one slate wall and another rough-hewn, natural stone wall. The waterfall is a change from typical rain showerheads.

Tiny Bathroom with Walk-In Shower

Tiny doesn’t mean it can’t work! This wet-room style bathroom puts the toilet in the shower space, saving tons of room. The ledge serves as both a space to put the plant near the window and a storage area for shower items. A plant gives a green, refreshing touch to contrast the clinical feel of white and grey tile.

1960s Modern Bathroom

The 1960s inspiration touches for this bathroom are subtle, yet they demand attention. The mirror with rounded corners and the stool with golden legs pop out first. Then there’s the predominance of black and white and the strong geometric lines of the cylindrical sink and the cubic freestanding tub.

Bathroom With Honeycomb Tile

This tiny bathroom packs a lot of sweet punch with its all-over honeycomb tile. The tile shape helps to make the room look wider, which is a great choice for such a narrow space. And the brass faucets add just a little touch of honey to the whole.

Bathroom With Maximized Shelf Storage

The best thing about this bathroom isn’t its cool, traditional whiteness or its great lighting. What strikes us is the clever storage space above the tub, which is in just the perfect place to grab a towel after a relaxing bath.

Chic Bathroom With Transparent Chair

This chic, sleek, ultra-modern bathroom makes great use of white and grey marble on the countertop and floor. But the best detail is its transparent lucite chair, a hallmark of 1960s modern design, updated for today’s tastes. 

Minimal Rustic Bathroom

A bathroom doesn’t need to be extravagant to look great. This minimal, rustic bathroom makes the best out of the least amount of decor possible, with a wooden ladder for the towels, a concrete floor, and open wood vanity. The frameless mirror adds to the bare-bones style.

Industrial Bathroom With Black Door and Mosaic Tile

Painting this bathroom door black makes this bathroom stand out from the rest. With plenty of white to go around, the door adds welcome contrast. The industrial-style finishing touches (the lighting, brass faucets, and exposed piping) give plenty of personality to what could have been an otherwise boring white bathroom.

Luxury Children’s Bathroom

Fit for an adult but designed for kids, this bathroom avoids any distracting decor elements and focuses on providing a blank canvas for the children’s creativity. The window frames a beautiful tree outside, and the mirror echoes its shape.

Chic Industrial Bathroom

Industrial doesn’t have to mean rough. This chic bathroom is the perfect example: Sleek black and white elements enhance and contrast industrial elements like exposed plumbing and hardwood flooring. 

Contemporary Bathroom With Freestanding Tub

This trendy contemporary bathroom features a modern-style freestanding tub. The unusual fluted shape is contrasted by the decorative vase with a narrow neck on the shelf right above it. The stone mosaic wall brings visual interest and movement in neutral shades.

Mediterranean Style Bathroom

There are so many beautiful things to notice about this bathroom that it’s hard to know where to start. The concrete sink? The wallpaper? The sconce lighting? The tarnished mirror on the door, reflected in the main mirror? The barely-there ultra-modern faucets? Whatever you notice first, though, you must admit that this space is a masterpiece.

Trendy Contemporary Bathroom

Using the ultra-trendy animal skull as the main focal point, this space stands out from the rest of the usual white and boring contemporary bathrooms. Notice how the tiny, delicate bare branch echoes and contrasts the strong antlers on the wall, and how the pendant light hangs right in the middle of the negative space provided by the antlers.

Bathroom With Multiple Tile Styles

This bathroom shows that nobody should be afraid of mixing patterns. Hexagonal tile on the floor and bath, brick tile around the bath, and blue patterned mosaic around the sink could be overwhelming, but it isn’t.

Blonde Wood and Limestone Bathroom

This bathroom features warm, luxurious limestone and natural, light-coloured wood for a peaceful, almost zen, space. The focus on natural materials makes this bathroom a wonderful space for relaxing and contemplating life.

Bathroom with Pendant Lighting

This contemporary bathroom features a balanced mix of shapes: rectangular countertop and wall with soft, round lighting, and faucets. There’s also a great contrast of light and dark, natural and human-made. But the light fixture stands out as a bold lighting choice and focal point in the space.

White Beach Style Bathroom

Even with its focus on neutral colours, you can still find interesting contrasts in this beach-style bathroom: the metal and the marble, the sand-coloured flooring and the white freestanding tub. A sheepskin stool provides a touch of warmth and comfort.

Marble Bathroom with Large Windows

It takes a little bit of courage to set your tub in front of those large windows… but then, when your bathroom is so beautiful, it’s no wonder you want to show it off. This contemporary design features a minimal freestanding tub, marble zigzag flooring and countertop, and glass and metal accents.

Modern Renovated Bathroom

This bathroom renovation brought out the best of this space: the large window, the corner space for the bath, and the washbasin with modern faucets. Soft textures via the towels and the wicker basket make the whole feel warm and welcoming.

Sleek Contemporary Bathroom

Everything about this bathroom reads “smooth and sleek”: the slate tile, the tankless toilet, the modern vases in the window. And there’s even a space for books and magazines that you can reach from the toilet or the tub. If minimal is your style, this is an excellent inspiration.

Banana Leaf Wallpaper Bathroom

Banana leaf and other tropical flora wallpapers are trendy right now. This tropical powder room uses the wallpaper as its main decorative element and highlights its shade with a yellow tissue box on the toilet tank, and a rattan-framed mirror. 

Cloudy Wallpaper Modern Bathroom

This beautiful modern bathroom uses a blend of old and new: the geometric side table and patterned wallpaper represent the new, while the retro faucets and brass mirror keep their roots in the past. A dreamy powder room that makes the best out of two worlds.

Luxurious Walk-in Shower

This walk-in shower has everything: body sprays, rain shower head, handheld showerheads, and even a steam unit. The large porcelain tiles have minimal grouting, which makes cleaning easier. This shower feels private and relaxing.

Fresh Green Beach Bathroom

Everything about this bathroom feels fresh and refreshing. The original feathered pendant light adds beautiful movement and contrasts the geometric stool on the floor. A leafy plant (instead of flowers) is a nice, original touch that avoids being kitsch.

Bathroom With Geometric Wallpaper

This small bathroom uses a bold, colourful geometric wallpaper to make the most out of its space. The towels echo the yellow, and the rest of the space remains neutral, so the yellow pops. A sleek ultra-modern, tankless toilet stays out of the way until you need it.

Bathroom with Electric Blue Tile

Extending the patterned tile to the storage shelves is what turns this bathroom into something visually stunning. No need to put a door in front of the shelves when the wall looks this good! Also, note the zigzagging pipe leading to the pendant lighting, a nice touch that echoes the tile pattern. 

Bathroom with Textured Tile and Decor

Don’t let the white of this bathroom fool you. It’s anything but boring. Instead of colour, it uses textures: the shiny diamond tile in the shower, the two branching wall decor elements, the lightness of porcelain on the wall, and the luxury of marble. It has a nice, clean, classic design, without being boring or expected.

Bathroom With Fish Scale Pattern Tile

What’s more natural in water than a fish? This gorgeous white and red bathroom features a bold orange-red scalloped tile, reminiscent of goldfish scales. The subtle red lines on the shower curtain and matching bath mat enhance the look without overdoing the red. The warm nickel faucet finish is the most appropriate choice here.

Bathroom With Zebra Skin Rug

When you use a bold accessory like an animal skin, you need to make sure that it isn’t lost in a bunch of other decor elements. This bathroom uses its neutral, modern design to give space to the zebra skin rug here. And the great thing about this kind of design is that you can change this one decor element as often as you wish, without having to spend thousands remodelling every time.

Vintage Industrial Bathroom

Can industrial also work with vintage style? If this bathroom is any indication, then yes. The exposed lightbulbs and copper piping show their industrial heritage, while the dark tile and wallpaper are vintage. There’s something comforting about this bathroom; the black should be unsettling, but it’s not.

Modern Bathroom With Rustic Rug

Modern bathrooms can be a little… clinical. The grey-green tile of this bathroom could easily suit a hospital, except it doesn’t feel that way, thanks to the beautiful red rustic rug. Also, note the touches of industrial influence via the original lighting fixture.

Contemporary Bathroom With Glass Wall

Very masculine and European in style (note the bidet toilet), this bathroom is modern, dark, and moody. But there’s something original about the choice of a glass brick wall for the walk-in shower. It distorts the occupant, without hiding them completely.

Classic Bathroom With Lotus Wallpaper and Gold Accents

The soft, round shape of lotus flowers add beautiful movement to this small yet bold bathroom. A light grey vanity highlights the veins in the marble countertop, and a gold-framed mirror breaks the repetition of the wallpaper pattern. 

Walk-In Shower With Glass French Doors

The large, French-style doors of this walk-in shower remind you of a window, and that’s precisely the point. In a space that uses so much black, a lot of transparency is necessary to fight the claustrophobic effect. 

Luxury Log Cabin Bathroom With Freestanding Tub

Log cabin decor doesn’t have to be cheap or kitsch. For example, this beautifully luxurious bathroom has all the style of a comfy log cabin, but with a conscious, thought-out decor. The freestanding tub placement makes the best out of a beautiful view of the garden.

Industrial Bathroom With Geometric Washbasin

The rough brick wall and unfinished wood table of this space contrast with the smooth, geometrical look of the washbasin and mirror. The taps set in the wall save space, while an interesting black-and-white tile mosaic adds movement.

Dark Tile Walk In Shower

This stormy walk-in shower gets this amazing feel via its rain shower head and its dark, broody tile. The blue lights add to the relaxing ambience as if you were sitting in a thunderstorm. (Some people find thunderstorms relaxing!)

Marble and Ivory Bathroom

The always-classic white bathroom gets a circular twist with this subtle yet stunning patterned wallpaper. The grey-on-white recalls the veins in marble, and the circle shapes contrast the square angles throughout the space.

Desert Retro Bathroom

In the desert, a bathroom is a space of respite and refreshment. The minimal feel of this bathroom is enhanced by the cacti and the simple, retro dial radio sitting near the tub. There’s something so calming about having just what’s necessary, nothing more, nothing less.

Luxury Tub/Shower Combo

This resort bathroom features an innovative tub/shower combo. By using a circular freestanding tub, this space gives plenty of access to the beautiful views around. The simple surroundings in natural wood are just the perfect kind of neutral support for this gorgeous space.

Take the features that make them sexy, like minimalist fluid lines and the latest tech — and use them for your bathroom remodelling ideas. According to Remodel Magazine’s annual report of cost versus value remodel projects, the bathroom remodel is one of the top projects that brings a good return on your financial investment.
