Bathrooms can be the hardest or easiest rooms to design. I personally love letting my creative brain run wild and use colors, textures, and lots of tile in my bathroom designs, but that’s just me! Perhaps you like a more minimalist look or you have a small powder room that you want to pack with style. No matter your taste, you’ll find something fun here to inspire the designs of your next bathroom remodel. I’m having major bathroom envy for every photo on this list!

Refined and Bright Bathrooms
You cannot go wrong with a classic bright bathroom! Whether you prefer bright white paint or light marble countertops, white in a bathroom is always refined and elegant.
This all-white palette is topped off with the most gorgeous chandelier. What really stands out is the large floor tiles that make this bathroom feel airy. They add a modern twist to a classic style.
Talk about refinement! This bathroom is the pinnacle of modern design. It’s sleek and bright, which is very refined! The minimalist wooden elements and flowers on the counter add a warm, earthy element to keep the bathroom from feeling cold and clinical.
Bright and Beachy Bathroom Designs
Just because your bathroom is bright doesn’t mean you can only use marble and tile! This beachy bathroom design was inspired by natural elements to make it feel inviting. The painted wood adds texture, the clawfoot tub adds a romantic vintage feel, and the flooring choice adds an earthy look to this bright bathroom.
Whether you love or hate wallpaper, you cannot deny how great it looks in these bathrooms. Wallpaper has the ability to elevate any space with a unique design or texture. These three options are all vastly different, but they pull together the style of each bathroom with the perfect finishing touch!
Vintage chic with poppies. These colors contrast and “pop” so nicely.
The geometric wallpaper is bold and brings your eyes to the vanity. Use it all over or as a focal point in your room!
Talk about chic! These large-scale flowers make a small powder room seem larger than it is. It’s a “wow” moment and makes a power room instantly elegant.

Warm Neutrals in a Classic Bathroom Design
Even though white and bright is a classic bathroom design look, we’re seeing warm neutrals take over. Draw inspiration from these two bathrooms.
Leslie Hendrix Wood Interiors
This gorgeous design uses travertine tiles and beautiful accessories to add depth and warmth to a large bathroom.
This bathroom feels so elegant and warm! They use the foundations of classic bathroom design, like marble and tiles, but shifted the colors to bring a warm color palette into the space.

Just because it’s a bathroom doesn’t mean it can’t have an artistic flair! Adding art to a bathroom makes the room feel intentional and like it’s part of the design of your home rather than a necessary room that you have to have in your house.
The sculptural element over the tub draws the eye up and the metallic color makes this piece of art feel expensive and modern.
The gallery in the small space is a unique choice and one that is very playful! Mix your eras and genres of art to make a statement. You could also curate artwork from one period to give your bathroom a museum quality.
White and Black Bathroom Designs
You cannot go wrong with white and black. It’s a color combination that’s always in style and always works in a bathroom. White and black as a combo is elegant and timeless!

I’d be remiss to give you a roundup of bathroom designs to inspire your next remodel without including tile. There are so many options – classic hexagons, subway tile, patterned slabs – I could write a post about only bathroom tile! I love sleek and elegant looks, but also unexpected pops, so these are a few of my favorites.
Pattern and scale mixing keeps this dark shower stall fresh. I love the sleek, black subway tile on the walls mixed with marble tiles on the floor.
Green subway tile? It isn’t classic, but it’s fresh and modern! Paired with the geometric pattern on the floor and brass accents, this bathroom works.
