The bathroom is such and intimate and personal space, you want it to be a luxurious sanctuary. The bathroom design photos will give you the inspiration you need to create a retreat of your own or lovely loo for guests.

  • In this luxury master bath, a deep, freestanding tub shows off its simplicity in an elegant fashion. A nearby shelf holds simple décor and keeps items close at hand when the tub is in use. The wall-hung, heated towel rack keeps towels toasty. The matching colored rug polishes the look.

  • His and hers undermount sinks sport sleek, single-lever faucets by DXV. The modern, beveled mirrors are reflected in style and sleek lines in the chrome cabinet pulls. Slender sconces add height and brighten the room.

  • Dual shower cutouts are great for his and hers toiletries. A large slab of granite makes a statement over individual tiles, while the matching bench allows for a place to sit and relax for a moment.

  • Using red — or any bright pop of color —creates a bold effect; limiting it to only a few items helps soften its delivery. To maximize a small bathroom, consider keeping tiles and walls the same color. The gray grout color highlights the brick pattern of the tile.

  • The rich, dark wood juxtaposed against the soft gray and white surroundings keeps this guest bathroom (left) looking timelessly classic.
    The wallpaper, by Wallquest, adds a subtle, but elegant look.
    A heavy dose of white, in this case the marble countertop and floor, opens up the small master bath (right) and pulls the eye to any variation in color. In this master bath (right), it’s found on the marble countertop and floor. Sleek rectangular lines are seen in the drawer edges, mirrors, lighting fixtures and sink.

  • A unique tile design sets this bathroom apart by using elongated subway tiles coupled with a circular mosaic strip. Brown, light blue and cream give this room a beachy appeal, and the textured basket on top of the toilet incorporates more earthy elements. The frosted glass cabinet panels add a whimsy flair. Soft, cool colors help the room flow with the surrounding areas.
