Before: Personality Problem

Sitting in a fun Austin neighborhood home, this young family's old-fashioned bathroom had layers of flooring, old pipes in need of an upgrade, and a lack of personality. The general layout and octagonal-shape window are all that remain after this bath remodel.

After: Style Reborn

Function was top of mind for this family who refreshed the space with high-contrast accessories and hardware, an inexpensive vanity, extra built-in storage, and patterned flooring. A new tub fits family needs for this shared bathroom while maintaining classic, cast-iron appeal. And an adjustable showerhead offers versatility. Frosted glass replaces the stained-glass look on the existing window to let in light without exposing users.

Modern Master Bathroom Makeover

Monochromatic Magic

A matte black showerhead continues the bathroom's monochromatic color scheme in the tub area. The adjustable design makes it easy to bathe children.

Bold Attraction

The geometric graphics in this small cement-tile pattern stand out among neutral tones and finishes. The simple color scheme makes it easy for the family to incorporate pops of color as their style evolves.  An early decision in the renovation process, the flooring set the tone for the design.

They chose cement tile for its versatility in design that you can't always get with ceramic tile. Bold patterns like this work well in small spaces; they don't become dizzying. 

Low Cost Bathroom Updates

First Impressions

On the hunt for a one-of-a-kind light fixture to mix with widely available pieces, the homeowners connected with this gold-and-black vintage pendant. An unusual choice for a bathroom, this dramatic light fixture pulls together the modern feel of the space and evenly distributes light. Consider installing a dimmer switch to control the mood for a relaxing bubble bath or an energizing morning shower. 

Before: Vanity Troubles

This average bathroom vanity just didn't cut it for this family who craved style. Before, the sink area served its purpose but lacked a sense of peace. The vanity makeover fixed that while maintaining all the storage space the family needed.

After: Black-Tie Affair

Choosing a floating IKEA vanity saves cost and floor space. Custom wood drawer fronts add interest. The floating aspect of the unit makes the room appear larger by letting the eye see more of the floor. 

A matte black finish on the faucet and showerhead button up the sharp black-and-white palette in this contemporary small bath.

Beautiful Bath Trends to Try

Shelf Life

A recessed niche makes use of an awkward bump-out and offers a landing spot for products and stylish accessories near the sink. New subway tile backsplash gives the space a clean, crisp look that suits the modern eclectic design. (The tile is also on the tub surround for continuity.) 

Stylish Sink

A matte black faucet continues the monochromatic color scheme in the vanity area and matches a round mirror with a similar finish. Its contemporary design cooly juxtaposes the traditional look of surrounding subway tile. Raw wood finishes throughout the space keep the bathroom cozy-looking.
