Bathroom Ideas

Whether you’re looking to freshen up an existing design or kick-off a big renovation project, you’ll find endless inspiration from Houzz’s collection of bathroom remodel pictures from the world’s best architects and interior designers.

And if you’re having trouble narrowing down your ideas, then here are a few quick tips to get you started on your new design:

1. When in doubt, keep it simple.

Unless you’re working with a large bathroom, color can easily overwhelm a small space. One way to open up your bathroom and leave room for your changing taste and style is to start with crisp white walls. For linens, choosing open-air storage concepts will help to open up the space and create a stylish, modern simplicity that will complement your morning routine. By tucking away clutter and keeping furniture to a minimum, you’ll be able to bring your bathroom remodel ideas to life.

2. Keep the floor space clear and open.

Oversized furniture is a quick way to make your bathroom feel small. Instead, you can open up your bathroom by keeping the floor space clear. If you need free-standing storage, make sure that it doesn’t stick out too far and cut-off air flow. And if you’re looking for inspiration on how to tie your floor space into the rest of your design, then consider bath mats or rugs to give you that little extra creature comfort in the morning.

3. Function first, form second.

Before thinking about embellishing your bathroom with decor, make sure that your bathroom renovation ideas are designed around the people who will use it in the morning. For a shared bathroom between two people, a double vanity will keep you from tripping over one another as you get ready. If you’re designing a bathroom for kids or one that will be shared between guests, make sure that you have enough linen storage and towel hooks that are easy for people to use.

4. Expand your bathroom with mirrors.

Large mirrors are the key to expanding your space and work wonderfully in any bathroom. Aside from a large bathroom mirror on top of your bathroom vanity, you can create mirror mosaics on the wall, or incorporate an accent mirror on even small walls.

5. Look at all your design put together.

Decorating is much different than renovation. For full bathroom remodels, make sure that you have a clear idea of how each piece will fit together. By creating a mood board with flooring, tile and textile samples, you’ll have a better idea of how each piece will complement one another. With Houzz, you can collect all of your bathroom inspiration in a single Ideabook and easily create your own bathroom ideas photo gallery.
