Step #5: Square Sink

Instead of settling for the typical oval sinks that come built into most vanities, think outside of the box and splurge on a ceramic square sink. When you install a couple of these beauties on top of your counter it'll give the room a little more dimension. To keep it clean simply wipe it down with a washcloth and it will stay sleek and shiny. Note: The faucet isn't included, but don't worry you can get a vessel design just like it to free up extra space.

Step #7: Stand-Up Shower

Although bathtubs are nice for when you have a relaxing evening to yourself, a stand-up shower is the more practical option. It'll give your bathroom a modernized look especially when you choose one with frameless glass walls. With its L-shape structure you can step to the back while you shampoo and condition your hair instead of being directly in the water. Bonus: With a larger area you have enough room to add an extra shower caddy to conveniently hold your soaps, or space to add a shower stool that makes shaving your legs easier.
