Though they're usually hidden behind closed doors, master bathrooms, guest bathrooms, and powder rooms all deserve to be as thoughtfully decorated as your home's living spaces. We found three bloggers with DIY bath remodeling stories to inspire your own makeovers.View Slideshow
The spare look of Asian-styled baths reminds us of relaxing spas and uncluttered retreats. Browse these photos for examples of Asian baths.
Economy of design, striking shapes, and rich textures help a 5 x 6-foot powder room blend function and luxury with Asian-style serenity. The bronze basin and limestone countertop are clean-lined and contemporary.
An unframed cutout mirror crowns this corner sink unit. Extending from the mirror is a long-necked faucet, which matches the unexpected simplicity of a clear vessel sink.
Paint and a few well-chosen accessories take this bathroom from a standard white half bath to a peaceful room filled with Eastern influence. A bamboo mural climbs up the wall, the highest leaves reaching out to touch the wooden frame of two pagoda-inspired mirrors. A dash of red brings good luck in the Asian tradition.
A porch adjacent to the master bedroom was converted, adding a much-needed second bathroom to the home. A low concrete ledge installed under the windows tops new built-ins. On it sit two tall sinks that started life as Asian bowls, now drilled for a drain by a lamp maker.
Bath adornments are kept to a minimum, allowing the natural materials and clean lines to speak for themselves. Limestone tiles cover the ledge wall and floor; a limestone slab tops the vanity. Undermounting the sink and tub keeps the attention on the surface materials.
This long vanity includes separate sinks as well as a makeup station installed at a lower counter height. The room incorporates a mix of surfaces: concrete sinks, colorful mosaic-tile countertops, bird's-eye maple cabinetry, and a mirrored wall.
Wall-hung sinks beside built-in drawers and below a ledge offer separate grooming spaces and leave a sleek profile. The windows near the tub and shower deliver light without privacy concerns.
