Before & After: This Bathroom Looks Great, But Wait Until You See the Floor

This “Before & After” involves a beautiful Brooklyn brownstone with a bathroom that had seen better days. While certainly not as dire as some “before” bathrooms we’ve seen it had an uninspired design, a clunky sliding metal door that broke up the space, and a distinct lack of storage — especially for a bathroom of this size.

This Huge Trend Has Taken Over, and Bathrooms Will Never Be The Same

You may have noticed that shower doors are looking more minimal than ever these days. This is because designers are now embracing the sleek, less-is-more look of frameless shower doors. These stylish new door types leave excessive metal hardware and framing out of the equation, letting showers blend in more seamlessly with the rest of their surroundings.

Before and After: What To Do When Your Entire Bathroom is Brown

There’s so much to say about this bathroom, but let’s start (and end) with all the brown. There are brown details on the walls, brown trim all around the doors and windows, and brown floor tiles. And are those sink faucet handles actually brown as well? Is that even possible? Regardless, it’s just a lot of brown. Which makes this bathroom transformation all the more exciting, because there’s no longer a lick of brown in sight. Enjoy.

Removing Old, Bulky Shower Doors Is Much Easier Than You Think

If you’ve ever wanted to get rid of your old shower doors, and replace them with a curtain, it’s much easier to do than you think. There are many good reasons to switch them out: some are leaky, or collect mold. They also get in the way of cleaning and bathing kiddos. A curtain eliminates all of these things, and can be thrown in the wash when it gets too dirty. Plus, when the curtain is left open when not in use, the bathroom feels so much larger than before. Don’t be daunted by the idea of leaving holes in the walls —you’ll be happy you took the plunge!

Unusually Beautiful Bathtubs We Long To Sink Into

Fall means a lot of things: sweaters and falling leaves and hot toddies and, to me, hot baths. Nothing feels better, when you’ve been a little chilled all day, than coming home and drinking a hot cup of tea in the bath. Which is perhaps why, at this time, I find myself particularly drawn to bathrooms with interesting or unusual or even showstealing tubs. Each one of these bathtubs makes the room — and would make my day, too.

Small Details To Make You Really Love Your Rental Bathroom

It’s surprising what a difference a nice bathroom makes. Unfortunately, many renters (like myself), have to work with whatever setup our leased homes offer. Usually this is a very standard, neutral, easy-to-clean but very boring space, with minimal function — certainly nothing special. Luckily, there are a few things that you can do to make a bathroom slightly more useful for your needs, and even slightly more stylish.

Before & After: A Crumbling Apartment Bathroom Gets a New Lease on Life — Sweeten

(Image credit: Sweeten)

As a connoisseur of all things vintage, I am certainly not immune to the appeal of an old-school peach-tiled bathroom, but this one had seen better days. The tiles were cracked and patched in mismatched colors, the toilet was one of those tankless numbers where you always feel like you’re going to fall over backwards, and the flooring (almost definitely not original) was more gas station bathroom than mid-century dream. Emily, a homeowner new to New York, wanted a clean, bright, and modern update to this small space — one that would feel classic and not cramped.
