2. Wood-covered medicine cabinet. This contemporary bathroom is spacious and gorgeous. But what I really love is the thoughtful idea of covering the medicine cabinet door with a piece of grainy walnut that complements the floating vanity to add just the right additional scoop of warmth.

4. Minimalist in a Modern AdditionLocation: Portland, OregonSize: About 122 square feet (11.3 square meters); 9 feet 4 inches by 10 feet 10 inches, plus a water closet that’s 7 by 3 feetDesigner: Risa Boyer Leritz of Risa Boyer Architecture The backstory: This bathroom was part of a new-addition master suite. The homeowners didn’t want to do a huge addition, so once they settled on a size of about 500 square feet total, designer Risa Boyer Leritz began looking at how much space to allot for the bathroom. Space savings: Leritz says she chose this arrangement because the larger shower volume made sense at the far end, rather than at the entrance to the room. “If you put a full-height volume, something that goes floor-to-ceiling, at the entry, it’s going to make the space feel more confined,” she says. “When you walk in and there’s a tub, the open volume of space above it makes the room feel more spacious.” A custom floating walnut vanity also helps free up space. Bathtub: A 5½-foot-long built-in soaking tub features a Caesarstone tub deck. Neat idea: A walnut-fronted recessed medicine cabinet at the end of the vanity creates a beautiful design feature.
Master bath: The new master bath ties in many of the same finishes and materials seen elsewhere in the house, such as walnut cabinetry and the porcelain floor tile.Sink faucet set: Axor Uno, Hansgrohe
