Ever felt like renting a luxury hotel room just to take advantage of the spa-like bathroom? You're not alone. A well-designed, stylish bathroom can turn everyday activities into restorative self-care that helps you feel ready to take on the world (or just a full day of Zoom meetings). If your bathroom has been feeling less than inspired lately, spruce it up with one of these seven design ideas.

1. Gold or Bronze Accents

We just love a warm metal, especially in the image above. Gold fixtures contrast perfectly with a cool, grey-veined backsplash. For a pulled-together look, extend the bright metals to your shower, towel racks, and other metal accents in your bathroom. You can also mix metals, just be sure to keep it to two or three varieties and establish one as the dominant color.

2. A Unique Tile

Yes, we love subway tile, but there's a whole world of alternative tile shapes out there. The dramatic black hexagon tiles on both the walls and the floor in this picture serve as the perfect contrast to the bright white tub, light wood stool, and brass plant hanger. The grout you choose is another option to inject your personal style. Match the tile to the grout for a sleek, monochromatic look, or contrast the grout with the tile to make the design pop.

3. A Statement Light Fixture

If there's one sure-fire way to bring the drama to your bathroom, it's with a statement light fixture. The starburst design is modern yet slightly whimsical, and it's the perfect choice to turn your basic bathroom into a luxurious getaway.

When considering whether to have a chandelier installed, be sure your bathroom has the Is miles wow to get away with adding amore sizable light source.

 Also, work with a licensed electrician who can install your fixture with safety guidelines in mind.

4. A Colorful Rug

Stark, bare bathroom floors are the opposite of luxurious. Cozy it up and add texture with patterned textiles.

 In an otherwise neutral bathroom like the one in this picture, a vibrant rug adds much-needed personality and color.

 Kick it up a notch and layer two contrasting rugs for more visual interest and floor coverage. Pro tip: pick washable bath rugs.

5. A Copper Tub

Toss out all your preconceived notions of what a bathtub should look like, and consider adding a copper tub to your bathroom.

Copper tubs can look both rustic and modern at the same time. As shown in this picture, the tub bridges the gap between the stylish glass shower enclosure and the more rustic stone accents.

These metal tubs also come in various shapes, sizes, and finishes to help you nail the exact look you want. As if those weren't enough benefits, copper is also resistant to bacteria and mold, meaning you can spend less time scrubbing and more time soaking

6. Marble Bathtub Surround

Marble has long been a prized material for creating statues and structures as far back as Greek and Roman times. If it's good enough for Michelangelo to use to sculpt his famous David statue, it's more than suitable for your luxury bathroom.

Treat yourself to marble countertops and a marble bathtub surround, which is both chic and practical as it helps protect your walls from splashes.

7. An Unexpected Wall of Colour

Even if you're a die-hard minimalist, you have to admit that green looks pretty darn great in a bathroom.

 We love the way this soothing, minty shade complements the ultra-modern bathroom shown above, and experts agree. According to colour maven Amy Wax in Elle Decor, green is an excellent choice for a bathroom.

 "It's important that any bathroom color gives you a sense of cleanliness and freshness, and green is certainly a color that feels very fresh,” she shares.


How does your bathroom measure up? How is it contributing to or detracting from your wellbeing? If it's doing more of the latter, consider bringing some of these ideas to life in your home.
