Creating a personal spa

Once, the bathroom was designed for efficiency’s sake, with very little attention to comfort or style. Today, more and more people are trying to create a spa-like setting. Soft colors, natural materials, and high-end tubs and showers help to create a personal getaway from the comfort of your home.

Mermaid tiles

Decorative and colorful tiles are the perfect way to make a statement without going overboard. People are loving the unique shapes of fish and mermaid style tiles for bathroom walls.

Mix and match

Have you ever taken one of those online “what’s your style” quizzes and thought “not quite” when you saw the results? The latest trends are encouraging us break free from those single-style boxes! Balance out your all-white bathroom with some natural fiber baskets, or mix woods and glass for a rustic-meets-contemporary look.

Let the floors be the “wow” factor

Want to go bold, but don’t want to shock yourself every morning with a bathroom design that’s just too much? Keep your walls, cabinets, and fixtures neutral, but add a pop of color and design with colorful, patterned tiles. They’ll look great in your kitchen, too!


Goodbye, bulky shower curtains! All-glass shower walls offer a sleek, modern look for any bathroom, and can make smaller bathrooms look larger and more spacious.

Freestanding tubs

Sticking to the idea of a personal spa, many people are opting for freestanding tubs for a more relaxing, luxurious experience.

Dedicated vanities

Makeup is a process for many people, so dedicated vanities and seating areas with large mirrors have come back in style. Create a personalized space with everything you need to get ready in the morning.

Statement wall art

Bold prints and quirky statement pieces are perfect for bathroom decor ideas. Yard sales, flea markets, and art shows are great places to find those unusual pieces that add personality to a home. Just make sure they won’t absorb moisture and are easy to clean!

Round mirrors

Round mirrors add a bit of interest to a bathroom, and the soft lines create the illusion of extra space in small rooms. [/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text css_animation=”none” css=”.vc_custom_1507823653832{margin-top: 15px !important;}”]

Bold colors

Break away from neutrals! Is there a bold, dark color you’ve been dying to try in your home, but you aren’t sure if you’re ready to commit to a larger room? A bathroom or powder room is the perfect place to experiment!
