Select the Right Faucet
Never underestimate the importance of selecting the right faucet for your bathroom. A simple clean lined faucet like this one from Delta makes a great impression in this small space.

Consider Honed Porcelain Tiles
When selecting tile for your spa-inspired ensuite, consider using honed porcelain tiles. Polished tile is slippery when wet and isn’t ideal for flooring. A honed tile allows you to use the same material continuously on the floors and walls and makes the space feel larger.
~ Jas Rai of Raicon
Ensure Adequate Storage
Keep your counters clean and beautiful by ensuring you have adequate storage. We achieved that in this ensuite by building vertical storage opposite the vanity. By taking advantage of the high ceilings we were able to create full height floating cabinets that hold everything from aspirin to extra towels.

Interesting Bathroom Design Idea: Add Furniture Legs to the Vanity
You can use furniture legs to make your vanities look more interesting. In this project we have used coffee table legs for the double-drawer vanity to create a sleek and modern look.
~ Negar Reihani of Space Harmony
Murals Make a Beautiful Statement
A mural with custom glass creates a beautiful statement. Not only does the glass protect the mural, it makes for easy cleaning. For added enjoyment and that spa feel, choose a tub with air jets. It doubles for laundering delicates.

Warm Wood Works
Warm woods like this walnut vanity go a long way in warming up an otherwise stark black and white colour scheme.

Lighting that Seems to Float
Mount wall lights over your sinks directly on the mirror help highlight the bathroom fixtures. The lighting seems to float within a larger mirror that can run right to the ceiling, making the room appear larger. Add a tall 10”- 12” backsplash behind your vanity using the countertop material. Simple sheet mirror can be installed at the top of this countertop for a seamless, contemporary look, and the higher backsplash keeps the mirror free of water splash.

Found Objects offer Personality
In a cottage powder room, mixing found objects offers unexpected texture and personality. Here, a piece of spalted wood found in a farmer’s field was made useful as a wall hung vanity.
~ Lisa Stevens of Lisa Stevens + Company
Cohesion is Key
When designing this master bathroom, cohesion was key and a continuation of clean modern living was essential. Layering is crucial to completing a polished, finished space. The use of stone, glass and metal are a few of our favorite fundamental elements.

Classic Lines + Neutral Finishes
This bathroom is timeless with its classic lines and neutral finishes. The his and hers vanity’s symmetrical design offers plenty of storage that is much needed in an ensuite. Whether one chooses to soak in the luxurious freestanding tub, or step into the spa-like walk-in shower, this ensuite is sure to be a homeowner’s dream bathroom.
~ Shawn Jones of The Home Improvement Store
Keep all of your solid finishes in neutral colours like white, grey, cream, taupe and paint the walls a dramatic colour. If you’re going to paint one or two rooms dark why not the bathrooms? It will make it feel cozy.

Well-planned Storage + Heated Floors
In this fresh, elegant, spa-like bathroom, well-planned storage is key. Consider what must-have items you usually store and what other items you would use the storage for. His and hers medicine cabinets, a combination of drawers for smaller items, cabinets for bulkier, larger items and a niche in the shower help keep the bathroom clean and organized. We also added heated floors for a luxurious and unseen element that has big impact, especially during the winter months.
