What’s one room in your home that could be way more stylish and much more efficient? The bathroom, of course. Beyond plants and plant colors, there’s a bevy of on-trend items that’ll make bathing time much more relaxing and way more on point. With handy social media tools like TikTok and Instagram Reels in the mix, there’s a treasure trove of inspiration you can unlock in just a swipe.
Whether your powder room goals include the ultimate spa-like experience, or you’re aiming for something sleek and plush like a five-star hotel, all from folks with a keen eye for form and function. For homeowners across the country, the bathroom is a place to unwind and restore. From wallpaper to mirrors, here are must-haves and impressive details that’ll elevate any bathroom. Ahead, 15 bathroom ideas to add to your mood board.
Immerse yourself in a supreme shower experience. The first way to get there? Swap out your old one for a rain showerhead for an elevated bath time. Creator @thistimeincolour added a gold rain showerhead that game changes this gorgeous green tiled bathroom. And, the terracotta farm-style sink is inspo-worthy to boot.
Yep, you can bring the spa right to your door. Creator @avigailadam1 left no detail unturned when it came to transforming a dark attic into a bright and airy spa. From farm-style brass hardware and a claw foot tub to an indoor sauna and lush greenery, this room has it all. Even better, the skylights and pendant lights create a mood-boosting atmosphere.
Board and Batten
It’s possible to have a neutral color and cheeky wallpaper in the bathroom. Creator @mywestcoastlife renovated their bathroom with edgy black-and-white wallpaper plus a crisp whiteboard and batten for added texture.
One way to showcase your personal style is with wallpaper. Whether your style is retro-infused, modern, classic with a twist, hip and trendy, or something else, wallpaper is a genius way to add in some fun. For example, @thecolorfulnest added bright pinks and seashells to a bath.
Another idea: @thehorsepurse leaned into arty mermaids and art deco with this orange and rust-colored print.
Dual Shower Curtains
Minimize water spills with dual shower curtains. Creator @laurencarnow incorporates this clever hack for a neat and tidy bathroom.
LED Lighting and Neon Signs
Wake up often in the middle of the night for a glass of water? Walking in the dark might not be the safest option (cue, stubbed toes), but bright lights can be way too harsh. TikToker @eburto23 added LED lights for safe and easy lighting. The cheeky neon sign mixes in more decorative lighting too.
Large Double Mirrors
A luxe spa-worthy bathroom is more than just cozy, thick white towels and marble counters. Creator @elpetersondesign utilizes two large mirrors with brass details to anchor the space together. Then, add in simple but elevated touches like dried florals, trays, and linens to up the relaxation ante.
Low on shelving? If your shower is cozy-sized or just lacks ample space to store toiletries, consider DIYing wall-mounted bottles. Instead of cluttered corners on the bath, creator @the_avantgarde shows homeowners how to display shampoos and body washes while keeping corners and flat surfaces clear. Consider the shower even more premium.
Whether it’s black iron piping or matte finishes, weaving in these simple but sleek details takes the bath space to great heights. Creator @keirashomecollective highlights a variety of bathrooms with design elements like black and gray color palettes, matte touches, simple whites, cream, and even a concrete sink.
Storage may be hard to come by, so go vertical. Creator @angieanette takes full advantage of the powder room’s wall space and keeps everyday items on wooden floating shelves. Soaps are on full display in glass canisters, wire bins for toilet paper, and room to spare for plants and candles.
Floor to Ceiling Tiles
Extending the tiles from floor to ceiling is a way to capitalize on color, texture, and tiles.
Creator @alittlevictorianreno shows you how it’s done right down to the styling with a leaning ladder and a matching bath tray in this teal-tiled bathroom.
Glass Shower Door
Beyond delightful brass fixtures, this bathroom takes luxury to the next level with a supreme glass door. Set against a space with floor-to-ceiling white subway tile, it’s a highly elevated experience. Check out @thishouse5000’s video for all the details.
Built-ins are organization MVPs. Creator @themartinezcasita completed a full bathroom renovation while highlighting storage cubbies for function and style.
Build Out a Shower… with its Own Tub
This room was previously a wet room and was transformed into a primary bath suite. From a custom-built shower floor with space for an ample-sized tub and luxury shower fixtures, this room has it all.
