14 Modern Bathroom Design Photos

As one of the most expensive rooms to renovate, a bathroom can make or break a deal when buying or selling a home. Homeowners are looking for rooms that don't require a lot of work, which is why a bathroom renovation can make the biggest impact on your resell value. As you get ready to remodel, think about what works for your family, as well as what other homeowners might look for. Today, modern double bathroom sinks and walk-in showers are popular, while oversized bathtubs and bathroom storage are also frequently sought after. Determine what you have space for, what materials are worth using, and then find a way to add much-needed storage for beauty supplies and extra towels. More

The watery effect of corrugated glass and its ability to shimmer raise possibilities, as evidenced in this bathroom design. Here a limited amount of daylight is enhanced by corrugated glass panels, which stand in contrast to the deeply quarried, evenly colored Bluestone on the walls and floor. Laser cut stone and flush trim create a sense that the panels continue through the fl...More

How do I determine my bathroom layout?


As you renovate, keep two things in mind: your family and future buyers. If you're family doesn't take many baths, don't feel the need to include a bathtub; you can use that extra space for a double vanity or large storage cabinet instead. On the other hand, some future buyers might want a tub, so be sure there's at least one in the house. Walk-in showers are also popular, though they take up space, while bathtub and shower combos are the best of both worlds. If you have a large family, you might want to separate the toilet and shower from the sink so multiple people can get ready at once. In the end, what is practical for your family will probably also be practical for future buyers, so go with what works for you first and foremost.

How can I add more bathroom storage?


Vanities are getting bigger and bigger every year, and for good reason — bathroom storage is in constant demand. Because of this, think about ways that you can add more to your space. An oversized or double vanity is always a good option, while wall-mounted cabinets and medicine cabinets are helpful too. Organization is key to space-saving, so use drawer organizers, trays and bins to keep smaller accessories in check.

What materials should I use in my bathroom?


Because the layout and storage options are pretty standard, picking interesting materials is key for helping your bathroom stand out. Tile offers a wide variety of colors and styles, which makes it a popular flooring choice, while mosaic tiles are common in showers. The grout can be challenging to clean though, so stone or granite might be better shower alternatives. Just like in a kitchen, implementing a fun tile backsplash or countertop color can help liven up an otherwise dull space. And last but not least, don't forget the hardware! Cabinet pulls, shower heads and faucets come in a variety of finishes, which allows you to add bits and pieces of personality.
