When remodeling a bathroom, the best thing you can do is create a meticulous plan of action (leaving room, of course, for inspiration along the way). And how do you kickstart a plan of your very own? By looking at hundreds of photos of bathrooms. There are endless sites that can help you define and refine what you want in your new bathroom.
Below, we’ll dive into a few of my favorite baths I’ve come across, and where I found them.

This is one of many examples of a timeless modern bathroom. I love the cool wall tone, the graduated colors of bathroom tile, stark white tub against the darker flooring, and warmer wood throughout. This bathroom, featured in the Berkshire Country House in Upstate New York, is a creation by Vanni Archive. This is one of thousands of photos of bathrooms from Houzz.
Houzz is basically an online social network and scrapbook for design professionals, as well as your average homeowner or apartment dweller, looking to improve their surroundings.
Here is another favorite on Houzz, a bathroom haven created by Mark Brand Architecture in San Francisco.
Desire to Inspire
When creating your bathroom, go beyond the pragmatism of a new toilet and bathtub. This is a great example of how such a utilitarian room can be completely individualized. This comes from a favorite site of mine, Desire To Inspire, started by two friends who love aesthetics.
You can click on labels, then click on bathroom, to view a seemingly endless blogroll stream of beautiful and unique bathroom ideas. On this site, aesthetics is king. And many examples are from exotic and international sources.
Here’s another example of what is featured on Desire to Inspire. Cut costs on your bathroom by hunting for unique pieces such as these black stools and the mirror hanging above.
Hus O Hem
If you can get over the language barrier, I’ve found brilliant bathroom photos from Hus O Hem, a Swedish source featuring amazing examples of all kinds of rooms and products. Forget Ikea, this is the real Swedish stuff.
So, what do you think?
