Usually, when you read about bathroom design ideas, the master bath is the focus. While your ensuite can serve as your own personal escape, it’s not the only washroom that deserves consideration. A well-thought-out guest bathroom, for example, can be both a gift to your family and friends and a source of never-ending compliments.
If you’re ready to take your guest bathroom design to the next level, you’re in luck. We’ve put together a list of our best tips to help inspire your redesign. With just a few small tweaks, you may just find that you have a new favorite room in the house.
Keep it fairly neutral
When dealing with a master suite, personal style reigns supreme. Are you someone who prefers a claw-foot tub for long baths over a quick shower? Done. On this project, though, your goal is to appeal to the masses: your best friend, your mother-in-law, and everyone in between.
To pull this off, we recommend that you stick to a fairly neutral look. Think about incorporating a monochromatic color scheme in your design. This color combo adds a sense of classic elegance to the space and will never go out of style.
Once you have your color palette in mind, you can add more visual interest to the room by playing around with a variety of shapes, textures, and materials. Think about featuring things like a tastefully curved sink or an eye-catching vanity.
Include luxe extras
The best part of being on vacation is the little luxuries that your hotel has to offer. Even though your friends and family won’t be staying at a company-run resort, you can recreate the experience by adding some luxe accessories to your guest bathroom.
Take the picture above, for example. In it, you can see that whoever designed the space has taken the time to add plenty of fresh towels, a plush robe, a variety of high-end soaps and lotions, plus spa-like bath treatments can be found on the back wall.
Take the time to consider how you can include touches like these into your guest bathroom. Even one or two should be enough to stop the room from feeling purely functional and help transform it into something special.
