Discover Your Slice of Heaven in These Bathroom Makeovers
Here are some of our favorite bathroom makeovers and the elements that we think take a bathroom from “meh” to “ahhhh.” Pin your favorites for reference later!
1. A view of nature.
Natural light always enhances the look and feel of a bathroom. If you aren’t in a location that allows you to enjoy a wide open view of the countryside, consider a frosted glass, a glass encased print you love, or some bathroom-friendly blinds. The clean lines of the tub also looks modern and inviting. This image simply screams “spa experience.”
2. A modern approach.
Do you love the clean feel of a neutral color palette and a modern design? This bathroom uses white porcelain, white marble, and a rustic sink stand in contrast to a rich, dark hardwood floor. Take a dip in the oversized tub, or enjoy a soothing shower experience in this room-sized shower. The effect is sleek, elegant, and inviting. You can’t help but relax the moment you walk through the door into a bathroom like this. If you have the space, this design makeover may give you the calming experience that you’ve always wanted.
3. The stone accent wall.
Give your bathroom a more traditional feel with a warm stone accent wall, natural woods, and marbles. The placement of the tub in the center of the room gives this bathroom a unique flow. Enjoy relaxing in the ergonomic bathtub as you watch candles flicker above your head (this might also serve as an ideal location for a small television).
4. A step back in time.
Elevate the rustic wash bin in the barn with this country-inspired design featuring reclaimed barn wood, a large oval tub, and a wall of exposed red brick. From the windows to the tiered lighting, this design provides a soft, natural light and a soothing spa experience. If stone sounds better than brick, consider a stone accent wall to really give your bathroom an authentic rustic design.
5. The coastal retreat.
This bathroom design lightens the atmosphere with a seafoam blue and shabby chic décor. A clean white tub, the addition of chair wall-like molding, and the vintage tile will make any homeowner feel right at home. Simply close your eyes and imaging yourself in a beach cottage when you choose a bathroom design with these elements.
6. The dark beauty.
If light and airy colors aren’t soothing for you, consider something on the darker side. This bathroom features modern, simple elements and contrasts of dark slate-like materials with natural wood surfaces. For those interested in minimalist luxury, this type of bathroom is your key to achieving inner peace and calm.
Whether you’re simply changing your color palette or looking for an entire redesign, these images will hopefully inspire you to transform your bathroom into a place you love. From a nature experience to modern designs, choose the elements that speak most to your sense of calm and peace.
