We each have our own idea of what makes a perfect bathroom. It could be a spectacular view from the tub a spalike ambience classic English country fixtures or rich colors and exotic hand‐painted tiles. Of course for many of us a complete bathroom overhaul isn't in the cards. No matter what look is calling your name there are ways to translate the key elements of the style you love into your bathroom without the high price of remodeling. Let's explore some accessible ideas in five dream bathrooms. Even without the massive square footage or fancy designer you can pull together a gorgeous room with classic crisp decorator touches that are well within reach. Swap out standard blinds for fabric shades and your bath will suddenly feel like a real room. Upgrade your towels for a fluffy version with contrasting piping or grosgrain trim.

Try a modern take on traditional. "The owner likes traditional claw‐foot tubs but the house called for a more modern fixture" says Randall Mars of Randall Mars Architects. "This tub by Wetstyle has modern lines with that same feeling. In addition it floats nicely in the space and enjoys great views. The pocket shutters offer privacy while flooding the room with light". Think green. "This bathroom was an ecochic project where we used several natural or recycled/reclaimed products" says Kerrie L. Kelly of Kerrie Kelly Design Lab. "The clients fell in love with the hammered‐copper tub when they saw it. Luckily the entire bathroom was demoed so we had the opportunity to take an existing tub/shower and covert the space to accommodate a large shower and separate freestanding tub. It now serves as the centerpiece to the master suite renovation".

Focus on accessories. If black walls are a step too far why not add some contrast with black accessories? This boudoir has dark blinds a thick black picture frame and an ebony vanity table creating a darkly luxurious spot. The key here is the glossy surfaces which catch the light rather than absorbing it.

Black is always the new black. If you aren't expecting your table to suffer wear and tear choose the most sophisticated and elegant table you've always dreamed of owning. Black tables are notoriously tricky especially if they are veneered because the smallest scratch will show up. If you are the careful type however black is super cool and will always be so.

Go for an elegant look. "The inspiration for this bathroom was elegant glamour" says Jamie Herzlinger of Jamie Herzlinger Design. "The easiest way to get elegance into your bathroom is by using a frameless shower because it keeps the look clean and sleek". Embrace minimalism. "We were looking to have the colors of the limestone tile bounce light around the room and to use few if any noticeable details in keeping with our firm's philosophy of embracing minimalism" says David Webber of Webber + Studio Architects. Infuse a sense of calm. "I was inspired by the tranquil river and landscape surrounding this home to create a peaceful sanctuary that brought the outdoors in" says Justine Sterling of Justine Sterling Design. "The frameless shower design was key in creating transparency openness and a sense of calm". Invite nature to be your guest. "This master bath is in a summer home on a lake and the back of the house faces the woods" says Nora Schneider of Nora Schneider Interior Design. "The shower faces an entire wall of windows overlooking the woods and I wanted to invite nature in as an evergreen guest".

Mod seating and fairy‐tale pendant light. Sleek smooth mod plastic chairs create a dynamic counterpoint to an intricate whimsical pendant light here. Sticking with white for the chairs and light fixture keeps this kitchen (with its pink cabinets) from veering into too‐sweet territory.
