    Everything in this slideshow

    • Before: Blank Canvas

      Monochromatic surfaces made this 9x5-foot bath boring to behold and laminate floor planks weren't suitable for the wet environment. Porcelain tile, painted stripes, and polished accessories will create some eye-pleasing contrast.

    • After: Smart Flooring

      New porcelain tiles on the floor look great and provide a water-resistant surface that’s smarter for stepping out of the shower. A special “floating” installation method makes these tiles easy to install. The 6x6-inch and 12x12-inch tiles come permanently bonded to interlocking trays that simply snap together and are then grouted in place.

    • After: Banded Beautifier

      A beige Roman shade made of ikat fabric features a subtle pattern of cream and taupe to complement the wall striping. Black banding provides a bold accent that ties the shade to the vanity and mirror frame.

    • After: Striped Style

      Painted stripes in cream and taupe create the look of wallpaper on the bathroom walls. Alternating cream and taupe colors adds interest without overwhelming the space. Simple black-framed, graphic artwork pops against the subtle wall tones.

    • After: Sophisticated Accents

      A custom black vinyl-over-MDF frame kit gives the plain-Jane frameless mirror a high-end look in minutes. A hefty new four-light fixture suits the scale of the large mirror and finishes the bath in style.

    • From Drab to Fab

      See how this bathroom got a stylish new look with a few small updates.

    • Before: Dark and Dated Vanity

      The oak vanity provides lots of storage opportunities, but the wood darkens the bathroom. Old Hollywood-style strip light fixtures, a tile countertop, and a flat mirror date the bathroom.

    • After: Bright White Vanity

      Updated to coordinate with the tub and toilet, the old oak vanity now looks more like a sophisticated dresser thanks to a few coats of white paint. A new countertop, sink, faucet, and hardware add to the makeover. Above the vanity are a pair of brushed-nickel sconces and a medicine cabinet. On the wall, beach scenes bring together all the colors in the bathroom.

    • After: Modern Fixtures

      There can never be too much storage in a bathroom. A 4-inch-deep medicine cabinet replaced the flat mirror. With a brushed-nickel frame and mirrored inside, the medicine cabinet adds a touch of glamour as well as storage to the bathroom. A sleek and simple high-arc faucet with lever handles adds a modern touch.

      After: Beachy Bathroom Oasis

      The first step in the bathroom's transformation was painting the walls a watery blue. Next, serene fabric choices, such as the cream-color cotton window shade and striped shower curtains, tie together the colors of the tiles and walls. A wooden coatrack adds storage by providing a handy spot to hang towels and robes. These elements work together to highlight the original claw-foot bathtub.

    • 11 of 16

      After: Versatile Accents

      A wooden stool with a woven top serves many functions in this bathroom. It adds texture and plays off the room's beach-theme. It also offers a spot to place towels for easy access from the bathtub and a place to sit. In a small space, it's important to choose versatile pieces.

      Before: Homely Hodgepodge

      A cobbled-together vanity, tiny sink, cheap faucet, muddy beige walls, and dark green painted floors were anything but pretty in this little powder room. A mix of old and new materials will make it a European-inspired beauty -- perfect for the 1860s home.

    • 13 of 16

      After: Narrow Escape

      A ready-made vanity would have been too deep to fit in this 3x8-foot bath, and a custom-made cabinet wasn't in the budget. The solution? Retrofit a petite table to serve as the vanity. It's weathered patina and X-shape designs on the sides and back made the table look like a European antique, but the $150 price tag made it an affordable find. Adding a vessel sink and wall-mount faucet, and pairing the vanity with an oval mirror, painted with an aged pewter and antique gold finish, completes the vanity corner.

      After: Cache Conscious

      Making the open shelves more storage friendly are a pair of baskets -- one with filigree metal sides holds soaps while a woven basket organizes towels and adds to the vanity's rustic charm.

    • 15 of 16

      After: Art-Filled Gallery

      A mix of pewter gray and warm cream colors, textured and weathered elements, and sparkly new fixtures create a welcoming powder room for guests. For an elegant gallery effect, neutral walls set off a collection of black-and-white photos united by black frames with white matting.
