Key Measurements to Make the Most of Your Bathroom
1. Oversize sink. If you’re not a fan of water splashing from the sink onto the countertop or floor, you may want to consider a larger basin. In this stylish Boston bathroom, designer Kristina Crestin selected a 48-inch-wide Brockway sink from Kohler.
2. Glass blocks. This contemporary bathroom by Bottegadesign in Russia shows how a shower wall made of glass block — a popular style in the 1980s — is still a sleek look.
3. Bold shower doors. These blackened steel shower doors add architectural heft to an Austin, Texas, bathroom designed by Shiflet Group Architects and connect to the room’s windows, framed in the same material.
4. Wall panels. If you want a luxe look for your loo, consider adding classic wall panels. This elegant New York City bathroom was designed by Chango & Co.
5. Wood ceilings. If you want to give your bathroom a bit of rustic character but wish to keep tile floors for maintenance reasons, consider the ceiling as a good location to add some wood. This Charleston, South Carolina, bathroom designed by Cook Bonner Construction features reclaimed wood on the ceiling.
6. Decorative windows. Adding a window to the top of a shower wall is always a great way to bring in natural light. For more visual interest, consider a decorative window. This Detroit bathroom designed by Marianne Jones features an arched shower window that follows the contours of the ceiling.
7. Overhead storage. To make the most out of every square inch, consider adding cabinets or a storage nook all the way to the ceiling. For this Washington, D.C., bathroom, architect Lawrence Mason included a cedar storage nook above the vanity mirror.
8. Brass fixtures and hardware. Warmer metal tones have been popular for a little while now, and this Phoenix bathroom designed by Two Hawks Design and Development is a terrific example of how brass fixtures and hardware warm up a marble-clad bathroom.
