A soda pop cooler becomes a colorful and creative sink. For unusual molding, this Minnesota homeowner applied yardsticks above corrugated steel wainscoting. To coordinate with the sink, she mixed red and green sticks.
A sleek backsplash, wall faucet and carved counter give this rustic bathroom a modern touch. A slanted area in the counter directs water to the silver "trough" below, giving a new spin on an old farm idea. An inexpensive closet mirror, framed with raw cedar, hangs horizontally and completes the rural theme.
Calming chocolate-brown walls contrast with white cabinetry, trim and floor tile to create architectural interest in this soothing master bathroom. A white-painted freestanding cabinet, rescued from a flea market, offers extra storage for towels and bath essentials. A grouping of antique mirrors on the wall brings a touch of elegance.
His-and-her porcelain washbasins with custom trestle-style wooden legs and wall-mounted faucets look contemporary, yet casual, in a clean-white bathroom. Bright towels (stored cleverly in baskets under the sinks), artwork and a vase of flowers add pops of cheerful color.
Dark woods and taupes warm this traditional-style master bath. Floating a stock drawer unit between a pair of vanities creates a custom, furniture-style look and offers extra counter space. Framing the mirrors adds a simple but impactful touch.
Watery blues on the walls and countertop mix with classic white to create a lake-inspired color scheme in this vacation home master bath. A raised tub offers lake views to bathers. A porthole window is the finishing touch.
A spalike, overflowing tub is the ultimate luxury in this handsome master bathroom. A two-level vanity offers a seated area for pampering. A recessed tile shelf provides storage for soaps or flowers above the tub.
Soft gray walls and brushed-nickel fixtures contrast with crisp white painted woodwork and a sleek pedestal sink for a simple, relaxing escape. Small touches, such as a fluffy flokati rug, a dark chocolate table with towel storage and a floating glass mirror complete the look.
An all-white scheme looks sophisticated and serene -- perfect for a bathroom with views of nature. A solid-surfacing surround gives the tub a smooth look. Blinds tuck into the windows' framework so nothing detracts from the scenery.
A single bold flower painted on the wall instantly brightens the guest bath. To make this flower, a stencil was taped to the wall as a guide. A multicolor rug, towels and window treatments continue bold hues throughout the room.
White trim pieces add architectural interest to a traditional-style bathroom, especially when mixed with wall-tile treatments and built-in bath shelves (between wall studs). Basic ceramic tiles cover large areas of the walls, while pricier mosaic glass tiles appear as accents inside shelves.
A concrete countertop dresses up basic white-painted cabinetry and looks great with brushed-nickel fixtures and accessories. Black-and-white photography, opposite the mirror, is easy art. Bargain white fabric makes pretty drapes.
Vanities flank a luxurious whirlpool tub in this master bathroom. The unique layout offers pretty views while one soaks in the tub. Oil-rubbed bronze accents pop against blue-and-white damask wallpaper.
A bright rug and striped shower curtain liven the wood paneling in this rustic retreat bathroom. Inexpensive hooks from a hardware store are great for holding multiple wet towels (in colors to match the decor).
A limited color scheme of dark wood stains on doors and cabinets contrasting with stark white paneling, sinks and tile creates a visually relaxing bathroom. A chocolate-color ottoman offers extra towel storage and a comfy place to sit. A tall cabinet has room for a coffeemaker and small refrigerator or towels and other bath essentials.
Identical curved ash vanities, on opposite sides of the bathroom, look more like furniture pieces than traditional vanities. A sculptural freestanding tub, positioned under a large drapery-framed window, becomes the focal point. Quartzite floors complete the sophisticated, spa look.
Soothing aquas and creams, along with spalike amenities, make this loft bathroom a pampering paradise. Reflective glass-tiled walls bounce light, while arched-neck faucets and contemporary vessel sinks add modern elegance. A whirlpool tub offers relaxing soaks. Cube storage, a bench and a robe rack help control clutter.
