Here’s a small bathroom design tip that may not sit well with traditionalists: tear out the bathtub and add a modern walk-in shower surrounded by seamless glass. It’s a great way to save tons of space in your small bathroom. A seamless glass door may be more expensive than a shower curtain, but will definitely be more durable. Not to mention, it will open up the space and add value to your home.
Tile is a good way to make the space look polished and to revamp a bathroom without doing a major overhaul. Keep in mind that the grout between tiles can become grimy if it’s not cleaned properly, and regular maintenance is important in preserving an aesthetic that looks fresh and not grungy.
Neutral shades are a popular pick for bathrooms, but that shouldn’t mean that adding color is totally off limits. In such a small space, color might seem risky but it’s just the opposite. On a small scale it’s easy to go bold without going overboard.
There are an endless number of ways to design a bathroom, from creating a layout to choosing colors and fixtures. When it comes to decor, mirrors are a necessity in the bathroom but that doesn’t mean they have to be basic or lack style.
In addition to the 30 Modern Bathroom Design Ideas For Your Private Heaven, we selected a handful of modern bathrooms that display an iconic material for luxury: marble. Richly veined or showcasing a contemporary straight line design, light-colored or dark-colored, this material oozes luxury and commitment to quality. Different kinds of marble give different moods and it depends on the artist’s vision and interpretation to create either stunning artistic statements or perfectly balanced spaces for personal hygiene.
One of the 2014 trends for bathroom design is the use of marble and onyx slabs to create glamorous private spaces.

One common misconception is that since bathrooms are often smaller than the other spaces in your home, you don’t need to worry about decor items. The opposite is true. A few well-placed decor items are the secret to making this space feel truly pulled together. Consider using candles, baskets or decorative display shelves to really drive your design home.
Once you clear clutter and replace the oversized bathroom vanity with something more minimalist, think of all the useful things you can do with the space. Like adding an all-in-one washer and dryer. Or creating a vanity space.
You’ll thank yourself later for using finishes that are low maintenance and easy to keep clean. In that regard, choose quartz instead of marble and make sure glass shower doors are treated with anti-spotting agents. In terms of fixtures, you’ll want high-quality construction like all-brass parts and a PVD finish that will resist scratches.
Marble bathroom insertions can definitely spice up your day. A play of materials helps define a sophisticated look, while the hidden and open storage spaces give the owner the possibility of carefully decorating the bathroom. An overcrowded design does no one good and it can interfere with the relaxation and coziness that should reign here.
Decluttering the bathroom will give it a freshly updated look. If you’re space challenged, look at how you can improve on existing storage. Adding pull-out drawers (that sort items easier) into a cabinet is an easy weekend upgrade. Standard sizes of pull-out drawers are available at most home improvement stores.
Inspiration for a luxury marble bathroom comes from different sources, like the one above seen in the Penthouse Suite Garden Court Hotel in Palo Alto.
