Before: Builder-Basic Bath

This basic bath is neat, organized and perfectly functional but the run-of-the mill fixtures and finishes don't fit the homeowners' modern, sophisticated aesthetic. Photo by HGTV fan InspiredGuys.

After: Chic, Contemporary Update

HGTV fan InspiredGuys completely gutted the space to better suit their streamlined style. In their own words, "We wanted a contemporary spa feel with modern amenities. Although our space is small, we took advantage of the high 14-foot ceiling by running the tile all the way up. The vanity, sink and waterfall faucet were purchased online and the oversize mirror was cut locally to fit the exact space. We are thrilled at the transformation and can't believe how much bigger our 5' x 8' space now appears!"

Before: Missed Opportunity

A single sink in HGTV fan nesting's bathroom creates a lot of unnecessary countertop space. Colorful accessories help to fill the void but dual sinks would be a useful upgrade.

After: Multi-Person Space

Now that's more like it. The bathroom was demoed for a traditional-style makeover. Dual sinks help with the morning rush while an earthy, slate-blue paint color is a refreshing update. HGTV fan nesting.

Before: Cramped and Not Clean

This shower isn't a very appealing place to get clean: The moldy walls and dirty glass enclosure are the opposite of hygienic. HGTV fan cprestonoc has a lot of work to do to make this bathroom usable.

After: Sparkling Spa

Beautiful and clean, this bathroom is dramatically transformed from the room's previously shabby state. A spacious multi-person shower with elegant marble tile, frameless glass doors and a ceiling-mounted rainfall showerhead turn bath time into relaxing "me" time. Design by HGTV fan cprestonoc.

Before: Spacious But Short on Style

HGTV fan 9605112 is lucky to have such a large master bath, but the stock vanity and countertop are nothing special.

After: Handy Hubby

A can-do husband is to thank for this contemporary remodel. HGTV fan 9605112 acted as the designer while her husband skillfully made her ideas reality. With heated floors, mosaic tile, wall-mounted faucets and a strategically placed flat-screen TV, this bath is far from bland.

Before: Bare-Bones Bathroom

No toilet, no sink, not a single luxury: There really isn't much to salvage in this century-old bathroom. HGTV fan oldhousemama has a real job ahead of her to turn this neglected space into a functioning bathroom.

After: Polished to Perfection

HGTV fan oldhousemama and her husband spent five years lovingly restoring their Queen Anne-style Victorian home. The bathroom in particular needed a considerable amount of attention. To keep the home true to its style, the original 100-year-old tub was expertly restored and period-correct details like honeycomb floor tile and wide, Victorian-era door casings were added.
