A large mirror cuts down on tile costs by filling much of a wall and can virtually double the size of the room, even if the room is a more modest size. Consider taking a mirror wall to wall.
Use a Smoky Glass:
A smoky glass shower enclosure balances an air of privacy and sophistication with visual openness, and doesn’t add much to the cost versus clear glass. If you do prefer the most open look, a clear glass panel is still a worthwhile upgrade from a shower curtain for creating a sense of modernity that give a bathroom that sought-after spa appeal.
Taking tile from floor to ceiling is important in making a traditional or modern space feel high end, but that doesn’t mean you have to spend at the high end. Consider tiling just one or two walls top to bottom in a statement stone. You’ll still get that finished look without paying to tile the whole space.
You might also consider running one type of tile across the floor and a wall for a strong, singular statement. Also, leaving the remaining walls white makes the veining the star of the show!
A humble Ikea vanity is sleek and simple, and the cantilevered style helps the room feel more open. It is also relatively inexpensive.
