Admittedly, bathrooms often get the reputation for being one of the least stylish rooms of the entire home. Whether you’re working with a small powder room or the main suite, bathrooms are often regarded as being strictly utilitarian: Where you dry your hair, brush your teeth, or perfect your skincare routine. But in reality? Bathrooms are bursting with endless inspiration-you just need to get a little creative.
Whether you want to swathe your space in a soothing paint shade, whimsical wallpaper, or eye-catching tile, there are plenty of ways to make a statement from the moment you step inside. And once you’ve settled on the basics, you can pepper the area with thoughtful, finishing touches. Want to transform your space into a spa-like oasis? Add stylish sconces and a large, clawfoot tub. For a bathroom that can withstand time and trends, opt for classic Carrara marble, a double vanity, and a walk-in shower. If you want to embrace your bold side, go big with a statement chandelier.
With so many options to choose from, creating the bathroom of your dreams can seem like a huge undertaking. But trust us, all the hard work will pay off. Not only will revamping your bathroom make your space feel more aligned with your personal style, but research also suggests it can increase your home’s overall value. In fact, adding a full bathroom can increase your median home value by an average of 5.7 percent.
