Dreamy Bathroom Ideas: Will One Work For YOUR Home?

Luxurious Modern Bathroom
Getty / ML Harris

Luxury and modern are defined in this bathroom design by the inclusion of the linen-look ceramic floor tiles, as well as the off-white glass field wall tiles laid in a grid pattern. The freestanding bathroom vanity cabinet provides a feeling of airiness because it is mounted on legs rather than a squat base. The idea of "modern" is completed by the dual vessel sinks on top and engineered stone bathroom vanity top and by the spacious, full-length bathroom with the side-mount faucet.

    Ah, we can dream, can't we? It's not so much the expense of the materials for this bathroom design idea; it's the square footage needed to make the idea a reality.

    Floating, Airy Bath Design Maximizes Natural Light

    Bathroom Design Ceramic Tile

    This bathroom design idea succeeds because nothing is as you might expect. There are no fixed-in-place cabinets. No pedestal sinks. No drop-in sinks.

    Instead, we have plenty of free-standing furniture and soft textiles. A cantilevered sink supporting a simple vessel sink. And the wall tile comes up roughly five feet, culminating in a fancy listello.

    • Cantilever counter.
    • Vessel sink.
    • Armstrong Perla Marble (Ceramic Tile) 13" x 13"
    • Armchair.
    • Free-standing, glass door cabinet.

    A Country Feeling, Wherever You Might Be

    Bathroom Picture Galleries

    This is a bathroom design that fits anywhere. Plenty of natural materials—plants, wicker, wood—balance out the less-than-natural resilient flooring. However, in a moist environment like a bathroom, organic materials rot and warp; sheet vinyl flooring performs well in these places.

    • Copious house plants!
    • Pedestal sink.
    • Free-standing wicker furniture.
    • Marble Whisp II Beige Swirl 6 ft. & 12 ft. Resilient Vinyl Sheet - Armstrong
