Lusting over the perfect bathroom? "I’ll be the first to admit that I can never shut up about a great shower head, and honestly nothing sounds more relaxing these days than a soak in a clawfoot tub," says Kat Neunaber of Waiting on Martha, who admits, "A great bathroom is definitely a subject of room envy for me." With her tricks below, you can be seven steps closer to the bathroom of your dreams!

How To Create A Designer Bathroom with 7 Easy Tricks

Natural Light

By allowing natural light to pour into the bathroom through a set of grand windows or skylight above the tub, you create a pure, clean feeling to the room.

A Statement Tub

Even a small bathroom will seem luxurious with a statement tub. Keep the rest of the design simple to let it be the hero of the room. Sites like Rejuvenation and Signature Hardware offer beautiful options.

A Stunning Shower

Showcase a stunning shower to prove that you're not fooling around design-wise. Plus, I don't know anyone that doesn't love a good waterfall showerhead.

The Hardware

Whether you're limited to working with simple bones of a bathroom or looking for a way to tie together the design, consider upgrading the hardware.


Wallpaper can instantly take your bathroom to designer status. Don't be afraid to go bold; the small space can totally take it. We adore Anthropologie's collection and of course al things Thibaut.

Bathroom Tile

A no-frills design option is to keep the space simple, and instead focus on the flooring. Go bold with color or keep things monochromatic with the bathroom tile.

An Accent Mirror

Don't miss the opportunity to use a mirror to supplement the bathroom's style. Consider an accent mirror that compliments the look and feel of the room, without taking away from the other design elements. Turn to sites like One Kings Lane to choose from countless stylish picks.
