Be bold in creating this elegant hall bathroom by painting the walls matte black. Notice how the sink and toilet boldly stand out against the dark background? A modern sink bowl and toilet design lend an upscale feel to the room, while a patterned black and white porcelain tile floor accents the room. The woodgrain counter brings a touch of warmth, and brass fixtures and accents pop into the space.

2 – A Touch of Country

Feel free to think outside the box in your hall bathroom. This design brings a country home feel with a farm sink. Mossy green walls are lightened by the light wood vanity base and white/black tiled floor. If your space allows, adding a window makes the room feel bright and inviting.

3 – Traditional Touches

Decorative walls create the sense of being in a wealthy country estate with their raised molding design. In this bath, a wall extends to allow a bit of privacy for the toilet. The colonial blue color brings out the features of the walls, and upscale chrome fixtures and vanity legs complement the granite countertop. A rich dark wood floor adds to the charm of this bathroom. Luxury bathroom faucets complete the design.

4 – The Looking Glass

Expand small bathrooms by adding a mirrored wall to give the illusion of a larger area. Notice how the dark stained shiplap on the wall runs horizontally, which draws the eye to lengthen the room. The modern pedestal sink’s design gives height and depth as it sits along the mirrored wall. The towel bar can hang above the sink, as no additional mirror is needed.

5 – Accents Set the Tone

Painting a bright or dark color on the focal wall and adding themed accents like flooring, rugs, and wall décor can enhance an otherwise plain white room. This room has a Southwest feel with a deep green color on the far wall and accents of a rug, map, and woven baskets. The wood flooring adds an element of warmth. The white walls, vanity, sink, and toilet almost fade into the background.

6 – Classic Black and White

Black and white are the tone of this hall bathroom using patterned black and white porcelain tile on the bathroom floor and white subway tile surrounding the shower. A black paned divider gives a white tiled shower the attention it needs to stand out while allowing light to illuminate the room. The black vanity supports the white countertop. The addition of the teak stand in the shower to hold products brings a touch of warmth.

7 – Corner Shower

If the hall bathroom space is small, but you need a place to bathe, consider installing a corner shower. The corner design does not take much footage and still leaves room for the sink and toilet. With the many toilets and complementary sinks, you will find a plan to work in your limited space. Using tile in earthy tones to accent the shower and wall trim can bring a sophisticated, upscale look to the smallest room.

8 – Under Eaves or Stairs

Consider creating a bathroom by using space under the stairs or eaves. Using the ceiling angles to your advantage, you can install a shower and private toilet that will fit your family and guests. Place the showerhead at the tallest position and build a shower bench where the ceiling is lowest. Use color on the walls and ceiling in fresh colors to brighten the room. Beaded wainscoting in white with mosaic tiles on the floor and a pedestal sink will make this little room a retreat for everyone to use.

9 – Along One Wall

Lining up the shower, toilet, and sink along one wall may be the best design for your hall bathroom. This example shows an open front walk-in shower separated from the toilet and sink area by a glass divider. The all-white room with a floating sink, toilet, and open storage unit gives the room a feeling of openness.

10 – When Only a Tub Will Do

Sometimes, only a bathtub will be the answer in the world of choice. Creating a hall bathroom with a tub can happen. It is possible to find a soaker tub to fit into a small space and possibly still have a small shower for those that choose that option for bathing. The plumbing is encased in a half wall that offers a shelf space over the tub. The minimalist modern bathroom design includes a pedestal sink and toilet that fit nicely along the wall to allow movement in the small area. The rich blue wall draws the eye to the tub, the focal point of this bathroom.
