Full bathrooms often have to accommodate multiple family members plus overnight guests, so an ultra-functional space is crucial. This bright and spacious bathroom is equipped with a bathtub, a glass-enclosed shower and dual sinks. The large vanity offers plenty of room to store toiletries, while the open shelving above the tub provides additional space for towels. Design by Gail Drury
A shower/tub combo is a great space-saving feature for a full bathroom. This bathroom's shower and tub are enclosed with a frameless glass panel, making the space feel larger. The mirrored medicine cabinets provide extra storage space, while oversized lime green glass tiles add pizzazz to the room. Design by Celia Berliner
Tons of Tile
Tile is durable and easy to clean, making it a practical surface for busy full bathrooms. This guest bathroom features a mix of ceramic tile on the floor and walls with a glass mosaic border. Design by Erica Islas
Designer Andreea Avarm Rusu made this full bathroom feel twice its size with an all-white design. Large glass wall tiles are paired with a glossy lacquer vanity cabinet. The Carrara Gold marble countertop adds an elegant touch.
This full bath is both practical and beautiful. Wide-plank hardwood floors and a furniture-style vanity add a rustic touch to the space. The vanity offers ample storage space, which is supplemented by the two medicine cabinets. Design by Lori Dennis
Vibrant Kid's Bathroom
For the children's bathroom in HGTV Green Home 2010, designer Linda Woodrum used chair-rail striping to pull together a color palette of bright tango orange and hearts-of-palm green. A pedestal sink is located just outside the door, allowing other family members to wash up while the bathroom is occupied.
Classic Meets Contemporary
This hip teen bathroom takes traditional elements, such as black-and-white tile and a claw-foot tub, and brings them up to date with bright pink walls. Custom cabinetry built next to pedestal sinks hides electrical outlets and provides adequate storage and counter space. Design by Cindy Aplanalp
In this full bath, designer W. David Seidel made the most of limited square footage with a shower/tub combo and a pedestal sink. A triple-door medicine cabinet adds much-needed storage space.
Classic Kid's Bath
Kid's bathrooms don't always have to feature bright colors and juvenile decor. This children's bathroom feels youthful yet timeless with beadboard wainscoting and subway tile walls in a soothing shade of gray. The cabinets, lighting and plumbing fixtures were all custom designed. Design by Alicia Friedmann
Originally built in 1904, this full bathroom now features a clean and modern Asian-inspired design. Designer Thomas A. Conway paired a classic freestanding bathtub with a sleek, glass-enclosed shower. Blue tile walls lend a soothing look to the space.
