Bathrooms can be cold spaces, decked out head-to-toe in tile and metal. But natural wood—like the burlwood floating vanity in this powder room by Terracotta Design Build—can add a warm vibe. Not ready to go all in? Try touches, like a wooden soap dish, wastebasket, or shelf.
Bathroom light fixtures are no longer an afterthought. Designer Jessica Webber of Webber Coleman Woodworks gave this cheery green bath an edgy twist with these geometric brass pendants from Quorum.

Hits of brass have made way for the allover treatment. For her basement renovation, blogger Anna Liesemeyer of In Honor of Design went with the Purist collection by Kohler for plumbing, Schoolhouse Electric for pulls and knobs, and Bellacor for lighting. Hint: The mix-and-match is easier if you don’t mind slight differences in tone.

No longer relegated to a dark corner, the bathtub gets its moment in the sun. Whether spotlighted in an alcove or under a sunny window, like in this project by Amy Weaver of Terracotta Design Build, it’s now the star of the room.

Who needs doors? The latest luxurious bathrooms are just that—full rooms that can take a splash, giving a spa-like ambiance, as in this one by Renewal Design-Build. Pro tip: The concept also makes for a good space-saving technique in small bathrooms.
In a powder room, there’s no tub to take center stage. The sink, like this vintage Turkish marble basin in a bathroom by designer Yvonne McFadden, gets a chance to step up.
