Bathrooms are one of the most expensive rooms to renovate in your home. The prices of tile, countertops and any other materials can be thousands of dollars. But it’s also one of the best rooms to invest in for resale value. Upgrading your bathroom is definitely worth the stress, but some people don’t want to break the bank to do so. There are easy ways to upgrade the space without having to do a full renovation.
You can upgrade your vanity. Vanities are the centerpiece of your bathroom. It’s the first thing people see when they enter the bathroom. There are many DIY hacks or hire a professional to build a custom vanity. If you want to start small, then I suggest switching out the hardware for a more modern look.
Browse my picks below to help you get inspired for your next bathroom makeover. I included vanities, lighting, and mirrors to help elevate your bathroom for a spring refresh.

Everyone dreams of the perfect primary bathroom. That might include a steam shower and a towel warmer. Others might desire a white marble soaking tub and a large well-lit vanity.

The featured above is bathroom inspiration by Amber Lewis Interiors. I stumbled upon this photo while scrolling on Instagram…as I always do LOL! I love a neutral primary bathroom. The exposed wood beams on the ceiling add some dimension to what would’ve been an all-white room.
P.S. This post is also your reminder to practice self-care in 2022.
Television personality and entrepreneur, Whitney Port, and husband Tim Rosenman, purchased their first home together back in 2017. After welcoming their first child, they decided to wait a little bit to renovate their home. When the moment was right Port teamed up with interior designer, Marie Flannigan, She was able to create the bathroom of her dreams. One detail that stands out to me is the Calacatta Primavera marble countertops that flow into the floor. The multi-colored marble is truly the star of the room. Port didn’t want the bathroom to be too trendy and it needed to be functional. Flannigan figured out a way to incorporate traditional designs with stylish brass accents that were perfect for Port’s growing family. This bathroom feels elegant and modern. Making it the perfect sanctuary for relaxation.

11 Fantastic Black and White Baths
Looking for new bathroom inspiration? Here are 11 fantastic black and white bathrooms that I love. The black and white look is one of my favorite styes when it comes to designing a bathroom. After designing my black and white bathroom, I decided to share some of my favorite baths that use the classic color palette. Black and white is timeless! In fact, this style can transform your room from basic to luxurious! There are many different styles and techniques that can be explored using this color scheme.
It’s important that the room is visually balanced and stylish. I specifically chose bathrooms that use various different styles of the black and white look. Additionally, I pulled together some of my favorite designs created by my friend Steve Jones, @BetterShelter, who I worked on the COCOCOZY Design House project with. And other interior designers that perfected the black and white aesthetic.
The color palette adds modern elegance to the home. Black and white baths are a simple way to enhance the space. By adding matte lighting fixtures and accent tiles, your bathroom can become one of the best rooms in your house! Adding fun details and accessories can enhance the design even further. Don’t be afraid to play with prints and patterns to add your own twist to the classic look.
Self Care at home is one of the best things! What’s even better is dreaming up what self care rituals match with extraordinary bathrooms. Today we are exploring 5 different bathrooms designs and exploring 5 different self care routines. Get ready to take notes – because even if your bathroom isn’t as luxe as these – you can still have an ultra-luxurious self care moment at home!
One thing I love posting about is celebrity home tours. When I ran across a tour of Liv Tyler’s West Village Townhouse I knew I had to cover it! A look inside Liv Tyler’s whimsical and beautifully designed townhouse! This stunning townhouse was entirely redone and was a historical renovation. They did an amazing job at adding custom molding, woods floors, pocket doors and more! This house tour is so good that it inspired two other post ideas that are now on my list!
This gorgeous colorful Spanish colonial home is located in Franklin Hills. It was designed by Reath Design! When I ran across this home tour I was immediately intrigued by how well this home does color. This home is full of bold color choices and prints. I didn’t think it was possible to create a home with so much going on but this house makes it look easy. It’s not my go-to style but it’s incredibly beautiful and brilliantly designed. The darker feel to the home is perfect for the fall season!
This Tudor House Tour is a spectacular home in LA. I love hearing about renovations and bringing old homes back to life which is exactly what happened to this home. The original idea was to re-do this home back to its original glory but after some work, a lot of structural issues came up. They got a bit more than they bargained for but were able to really customize this space to their needs. The final design turned out amazing!
A bathroom deserves just as much attention as the rest of your home. A bathroom, whether large or small, should be a relaxing and pleasant space. I currently have bathrooms on my mind. The bathrooms where I live could use a redo most certainly. I have absolutely no plans to do the baths in this house…ever but I can still bathroom dream! I am particularly obsessed with a well designed small bathroom. Soooooo…. needless to say, without agenda of a bath remodel anywhere in my future, I am still enjoying looking at small bathroom ideas. Here are some of the most incredible designs I found. I hope they spark some ideas from your own bathroom!
A perfectly designed NYC apartment is mysterious and exciting. The idea of living in such a populated area and making the most of out what space you can afford is mind-boggling. There are such talented interior designers in NYC that I had an amazing time just exploring images of their work. While not all apartments in NYC are this glamorous, I can’t help but fantasize about these designs. From huge lofts to Parisian chic here are some of my favorites.
So excited to share a few photos of the completed COCOCOZY Design House! Today, was so excited that House Beautiful decided to do an exclusive house tour of this remodel project I have been working on for almost 10 months. Last year, I bought the house and started remodeling it in April. Now, here it is, a 1930 classic Spanish Colonial Revival nestled in the hills of Los Angeles in an enclave called View Park.
Time for a little update on the master bathroom at the COCOCOZY Design House. It feels like just yesterday the bathroom design started and we’re already finishing up. Now that we are almost complete with the baths, time for a little sneak peek!
Remember what the bathrooms used to look like? Every bathroom at the COCOCOZY Design House looks great now with all of the TOTO plumbing fixtures. Bright and clean, these bathrooms are coming together great and are giving me serious bathroom envy. TOTO provided all of the amazing sinks, faucets, shower and bath hardware, tubs and toilets for the Design House.
Time for some kitchen planning!
The cabinets have been ordered, appliances have been selected, and now I am thinking about counters. I am super duper lucky to have another wonderful company on board to provide product for the COCOCOZY Design House. Caesarstone has generously agreed to supply all of the countertop material for the kitchen and the baths.
I had Caesarstone counters in my first house — you all may remember that tiny little cottage in the Hollywood Hills. Now for my first COCOCOZY Design House, I went to Caesarstone as my first choice for counters!
The planning and renovation phase of the COCOCOZY Design House is in full swing!
As you know, I’m currently in the midst of transforming a beautiful 1860-square-foot Spanish style home in View Park LA (my first ever design house!) — and we’ve meticulously selected a few partners to work with us by providing product.
I was so thrilled when TOTO came on board to supply all bath and plumbing fixtures for the 4 new bathrooms we are creating in the Design House. You heard me… EVERYTHING! That means sinks, faucets, shower heads, toilets, gorgeous tubs, accessories, and all of the fittings and valves. WOW!!
We’ve talked about dreamy freestanding tubs before, but now I want to chat about two-toned clawfoot tubs!
I just bought a vintage clawfoot tub for my latest design project — and like most of my finds, it’s in great shape but needs just a bit of refurbishing.
Full disclosure, I never in my life thought I would want a clawfoot tub… it seemed a little too quaint for me. Never say never, I guess, because now I’m obsessed with the idea of having a two-toned clawfoot bathtub — black and white in particular.
Below I’ve rounded up some of my favorite photos of the trend for inspiration!
Stressful times call for a soothing bath.
As a rule, I always try to section out time during my busy day to practice self care — whatever that looks like depending on my schedule. I am NOT a bath girl, but the other day I was inspired to run a warm bath… only to find out that I don’t have a stopper in my tub! That should show you how rare it is for me to take a relaxing soak! Note to self (and my Amazon account): purchase a bathtub stopper!
Anyway, I recently visited a home remodel site with a friend of mine and there was an old cast iron clawfoot tub. After asking my Instagram followers whether or not the freestanding tub should be salvaged or ditched, most said keep it!
I think that’s spot on… there’s something so romantic, soothing, and comforting about a good old fashioned (and good looking!) stand out stand alone tub.
I’ve gathered some of my favorite freestanding tubs for inspiration (below)!
