1. Choose an on-trend tub, or switch up your shower.

Freestanding tubs, like a vintage claw foot or contemporary soaking tub, make for a serene master bathroom. Wall-mounted shelves next to the tub help to free up floor space and maintain the room’s open, airy feel.

Say goodbye to your old shower curtain, and say hello to French glass doors or, better yet, no doors at all. Instead, "outdoor showers" have made their way indoor.

Wet rooms are making a name for themselves, too. Think of it as a giant all-in-one place to get ready. Not only are they ADA-compliant and easy to clean, but they’re also super chic.

2. Take a fresh look at tiles.

Sure, subway tiles and classic black and white tiling are classics, but there are more tile possibilities than most people realize.

Colorful glazed terra cotta tile instantly spices up your bathroom.

Mixing in hexagonal tile with classic subway tiles is an excellent balance between classic and subdued while being a little funky and different.

3. Minimize your cabinets.

Minimal cabinets simplify storage while allowing you to go bold with fun wallpaper, quirky light fixtures, and tile patterns.

Simple, clean cabinets help balance out the chaos that often exists in a morning routine.

4. Keep things interesting with contrast.

Dark moody walls—or floors—with a white tiled shower is a beautiful pairing.

Contrasting individual walls within the bathroom is another fun way to add depth to the space.

5. Make a statement with furniture.

If you've got the space, add a cozy nook to your bathroom or a place you can toss your clothes during a shower or sit to paint your nails.
