Designing a beautiful and relaxing bathroom is a fun and exciting part of your home design. You want your bathroom mirrors to be both stylish and functional, so it’s important to make sure you find the right mirror for your home. Bathroom mirrors are typically larger than other mirrors in your home and might double as storage units for your toiletries. Before settling on a bathroom mirror, make sure that you measure your bathroom and create a word bank of descriptive words to guide your design.

Think pink for an inviting place to get ready each morning. "Perhaps one of my favorite warm paint colors is a hue that dances right between blush and nude," says Decorist designer Erika Dale. "This color is perfect for a bedroom, dressing room, or bathroom. There is a reason every Hollywood starlet is lit with soft pink light… it is so flattering!"
Clean up clutter and give your bathroom a farmhouse look at the same time with these distressed mason jar containers. It is so easy to distress a mason jar. You just paint them white, or a light blue or gray, and then use sandpaper to distress them. These are perfect for holding any number of bathroom essentials and really do have a gorgeous rustic look. Take a look at this set that I found on Etsy for inspiration, or you can grab these for just $30 for a set of six.
"I always start with the stone when designing a bathroom, and that begins to inform the color palette. Pale Oak partners well with most marbles, enhancing the vein in the marble, but equally works to soften a dark tile. Be careful, it can go gray or beige depending on the light. Personally I love that about it, but depending on the space, it can be tricky."
Old wood and a rope hanger give this gorgeous shelf a wonderfully rustic quality. This is a simple DIY project if you want to make it yourself. Just build a shelf from reclaimed wood and then add a thick rope to the top for hanging. I love this for storing extra rolls of toilet paper or even makeup and other essentials. I got the idea from this one on Etsy, and it’s under $30.
When you're designing your bathroom, consider how to make the space function for you — whether you prefer to hide clutter in storage baskets or showcase favorite products and neatly folded linens on open shelves. Bright white walls will always look fresh and clean, but don't overlook adding vibrant tile, towels, or carpets for pops of color. They'll warm up the room and turn it into a cozier retreat. Even painting the trim a saturated hue can create a more inviting vibe. Looking for additional bathroom design inspiration?

Even if you don’t have large windows scaling your bathroom wall, you can introduce your fondness for nature in other ways. Stone or wood will emit the natural look, while mint green and white colors will ensure a refreshing feel. Clean lines will help reiterate the modern theme you’re going for—these square sinks work well in a rectangular shaped room and panel windows.
