Bathrooms don't have to be plain and boring. There's more inspiration out there than ever before when it comes to making powder rooms, primary bathrooms, and smaller half-baths go beyond your typical sink, toilet, and shower. From bright wallpaper and patterned tile to rustic patinas and colorful walls, you'll find something in the list below that will help inspire your next remodel.

About This Term: Primary Bathroom
