This large curb-less shower fits two comfortably. Thermostatic valves make getting the perfect temperature a snap. The ceiling mounted rain head accommodates warming-up with "immersion therapy". Frameless heavy glass keeps the shower feeling large and the maintenance easy. An inline exhaust fan grille in the shower ceiling makes sure the shower dries out quickly to minimize m...More

The small step back in the wall creates an alcove type of intimacy for the tub without giving it a closed-in feel. The shape of the tub nods at the traditional "slipper" style, while adding a sleeker, more modern feel. Photography by Warren Smith CMKBD, CAPS

The soft grass-cloth-like stripe in the tile and the 4" slate on the floor bring the Asian feel into the shower. Recessed niches maintain order without creating squeegee obstructions, and the suspended seat keeps the feeling light and the granite top makes a great low maintenance surface while adding color and interest.

When you're ready to start the renovation process, it is important to consider popular trends as well as your own family's needs. First of all, you should consider how best to use the space you have. Think about what your family needs most, and then determine if that pedestal bathtub or larger vanity is worth the investment. Next, find ways to add more bathroom storage. Adding more cabinets and shelves to such a small space can be tricky, but it is often crucial for storing towels and beauty supplies. Finally, think about the overall feel of the space. With a creative use of materials, even a bathroom can have decorative transitional elements.

How do I determine my bathroom layout?


As you remodel, you want to think about resell value and buyer preferences, but you also want to think about what you like. Having a bathtub is key when selling your home, but it might not be a great use of space if your family doesn't take many baths. Instead, opt for more sink space with a larger transitional vanity and double sinks. If several people use the same bathroom in the morning, try separating the toilet and shower area from the sink so multiple people can get ready simultaneously. Or if you like to have options, a bathtub and shower combination is the best of both worlds.

How can I add more bathroom storage?


Since space is always needed, purchase an oversized vanity with plenty of cabinets and drawers. If that's not enough, add a medicine cabinet, wall cabinets or floating shelves. Even something as simple as a shower caddy can make a difference. Organization can also save you space. Straighten up deep drawers by using handy trays and dividers.

What materials should I include 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.
