When it comes to improving the bathroom, you’ve probably read a couple of interesting ideas—from using splashes of color and hints of neon to unexpected styling tricks and tile hacks. If you’ve recently decided to give it an overhaul and you have budget to spare, you may want to go all out with a major renovation. To inspire you to take the plunge, here are pegs you can bookmark. Discuss it with a professional to know how much a certain look will cost. Remember—spend your budget wisely!

1. Work with cement tiles

 

While sparkling white tiles can make your bathroom stand out, patterns and colors on the floor can give it a boost like no other. Choose cement tiles in a pattern you prefer and make this your focal point. Since your floors are already striking, opt for white walls and simple fixtures. You can also bring in wooden shelves and storage pieces for a rustic appeal.

2. Maximize every inch of space

 

Achieve your dream private space by incorporating a walk-in closet into your T&B's design and layout. Aside from having his-and-her sinks to make it functional, a side of the room can be alloted for cabinets and the other for a floor-to-ceiling mirror that covers one wall.

RL Tip: For an elegant look, opt for gold accents and fixtures. You can also revamp the flooring with wood-like tiles.

3. Carve out a vanity nook

 

Many homeowners would want to have a separate vanity area where they can get ready and prep for a new day. However, there are days when we need to rush and get primped in a few minutes. Be ready for such events by designing a bathroom that doubles as a vanity space. Install vanity lights on both sides of your mirror for an instant setup. Add a shelf in one corner (make sure this spot doesn't get wet) where you can keep your toiletries and makeup essentials.

4. Combine wood and mosaic tiles

 

For a bathroom that showcases a warm yet futuristic appeal, pair wooden elements with mosaic tiles. Instead of using the tiles for your accent wall, you can use these pieces to spruce up the four walls of your bathroom. Inject cozy accents by using wood for your shelves and to define the mirror. You can also add a rattan mat as extra accent.

5. Go edgy with concrete walls and black fixtures

 

Achieve a sleek T&B that'll be the envy of many by working with concrete walls, black bath fixtures, and touches of gray for the cabinets and storage pieces. Not only will this bathroom be easier to maintain, it's easy to decorate as well. To keep it from being boring, you can put a vase of flowers or an indoor plant on display.
