Bathing Beauties1 of 17

Want to take your bathroom from blah to beautiful? Steal inspiration from these eight stunning makeovers you have to see to believe.
Before2 of 17
Dizzy with plaid and frumpy with age, this cramped upstairs bath was less than ideal for a young college student. Luckily, her mother, Carla Aston, a designer and ace space planner, was keen on an update that would procure more square footage from the neighboring attic and be more reflective of her daughter's emerging style.

The enlarged room offers a fashionable retreat and all the pampering space a young woman could want. Aston used Tiffany Blue as the guiding color force in the redesign and applied the happy shade to the walls and ceiling to make the room feel larger. Crisp white is ultra-fresh, while sliced pebble tile and seagrass baskets feel beachy.

Aston's next design challenge: Turning this mediocre builder-grade bathroom into a personalized spa.

A stunning chandelier and floating cabinetry add a touch of luxe, while random wall angles were upgraded with a smooth leveled ceiling and integrated arched cove.

For a discriminating NYC client who wanted a sophisticated and serene space, this old and shabby—not chic—Upper West Side master bath left much to be desired.
After7 of 17
Using variations of white—plus a dose of bling—Carl D'Aquino and Francine Monaco of D'Aquino Monaco create visual delight by juxtaposing honed stone with a lacquer console and an iridescent wall mosaic that sparkles in the sunlight. While a glass edge introduces a glimmer of mineral green, the Hudson River view really provides all the color required.

Between the orange tiger-striped vanity, boring light fixture, tile baseboard and cheap glued on mirror, Erin Williamson of Design Crisis, and her obliging husband Ben, had their work cut out for them when they tackled this powder room makeover for the design blogger event, One Room Challenge.
After9 of 17
Williamson welcomed the opportunity to give the room some "wow" factor, staining the vanity with India ink for the blackest of blacks, papering the powder room with a cosmically cool washable wall-covering (good for young boys who are practicing their aim) and adding stylish gold accents.

The divided layout of the original master bath consisted of a dark-carpeted dressing area and a cave-like bathing zone with depressing laminate, odd-angled walls, and a major storage deficit. The remodel, conceived by Naomi Stein of Design Manifest, included knocking down walls and removing the never-used tub.

Natural light pours into the large open space, and is disbursed via mirrors, glass and metal. Stein says the light "is best for primping," as well as illuminating the earthy textures and tones of the bath's finishes and materials. Natural elements, such as wood-grain porcelain tiles, pebbled mosaic, and a shale-like wash on the maple cabinetry couple with silvered accents to exude a Zen vibe.

As soon as makeup artist and painter Kristina Miccio and photographer Danny Muro closed on a cozy 1953 provincial house, they got started on a DIY renovation. A luxurious spa retreat was part of their vision and in order to create it they tapped into existing plumbing and took over a second bedroom.
After13 of 17
Over the course of a month, Miccio and Muro, both artful and skilled, stretched their budget with ingenuity. The multipurpose bathing lounge has a romantic warmth thanks to the eclectic mix of reconditioned estate-sale finds, salvage and hand-me-downs.

When a young couple bought a severely damaged 1920s Craftsman bungalow, they hired Renewal Design Build to embark on a gut renovation in sync with their modern lifestyle.
After15 of 17
A black three-panel door marks the entrance to a handsomely reconfigured full bath with a vintage modern sensibility. The most covetable addition is an old industrial cart, found at the Scott Antique Market in Atlanta. They tuned it into a sink vanity, outfitted with a large tilt mirror. The finishing touch? A classic curtain that frames the vintage claw-foot tub.

As part of a fundraiser for the preservation of a 1920s Beverly Hills estate, Windsor Smith took on the reinvention of this bath en suite. The marble-clad space had great bones, but was dark, monochromatic and cold. Smith's goal was to maintain the historical integrity of the space while infusing it with energy and style.
After17 of 17
Opulence and adventure were on Smith's design agenda as she treated the bath to a generous serving of pink velvet, gold, and exotic furnishings such as a zebra rug and toreador costume. To balance the visual fiesta, she papered the room in a lustrous mist-hued wall covering with a subtle silvered pattern.
