Luxurious Guest Bathroom Ideas To Inspire & Impress
From statement walls to spa-like elements to bold colors, the guest bathroom is a perfect place to have a little (or a lot!) of interior design fun. Aside from the guest bedroom, a beautifully designed second bathroom is the best way to give your visitors a warm welcome and leave a lasting impression.
Whether the space you’re working with is a petite powder room or a spacious full bath, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite luxe guest bathrooms that are sure to spark inspiration and leave your guests feeling wowed.
Elevate Classic Elements
White tile and marble countertops get a memorable upgrade in Mandy Moore’s guest bathroom below, designed by Sarah Sherman Samuel. Matte white tile in a classic herringbone pattern exudes understated elegance, especially paired with a statement-making marble slab.

Get Inspired by Nature
Embrace your love of nature with floral wallpaper and flora-inspired tile. The maximalist bathroom below expertly demonstrates how to pair dark floral wallpaper with a grass bed-reminiscent green tile floor for a well-appointed modern look.

Create Visual Interest with Two-Toned Tile

Install A Statement Sink
Make an impression with a sink that guests won’t soon forget. The modern pedestal sink below sets a pretty hand-washing scene in front of a clean gridded wainscot of our satiny Flagstone tile, complete with built-in shelf housing pretty trinkets and art.

Get Creative with Storage
Being short on space doesn’t have to mean you need to compromise design. The beautiful petite powder room by Hilton Carter below demonstrates how a small space can make a big impact with storage space built right into the sink and no shortage of eye-catching elements. We’re partial to the tile flooring, with triangular ceramic tiles adding delightful pops of color.

Whether you prefer a classic black and white checkerboard or a more modern take, the guest bath is an excellent space to play with checks. From floors to walls to accessories, there’s no shortage of areas to place a checkered pattern. The bathroom below showcases a soothing, monotone green look until you get to the floor where a checkerboard pattern pushes the bathroom design into uber-cool territory. Bonus points for the matching towel!

Embrace the Roaring 20s
Channel Gatsby with the luxurious look of Art Deco in your guest bathroom. With bold patterned wallpaper, gold accents, and a powdery blue and brown tile floor, the bathroom designed by Claire Thomas below is quintessential Deco.

If your guest bathroom is used mainly by, well, guests, then it’s the perfect area to incorporate the principles and clean look of minimalism. The bathroom below is a minimalist haven filled with clean lines, muted colors, and only the essentials: soap, towel, and fresh flowers.

Dial In The Details
Although the wallpaper might be the first thing to catch your eye, there’s so much more to the beautiful bathroom below. From the handcrafted trim rounding off the tile wainscot to the plush, monogrammed hand towels, every detail from design to comfort is dialed in.

The timeless white bathroom gets a modern upgrade courtesy of Sarah Sherman Samuel, with light wood accents and matte white Hexagon Tile that exudes muted sophistication in the natural light.

Mix Colors & Shapes
With a rainbow of colors and a library of tile shapes to choose from, why stick to just one? The powder room below used 2x8 Tile in Flagstone to decorate the backsplash and half walls leading to a floor of 4” Hexagon Tile in Rosemary for a beautiful blue-green blended guest bath.

Go To The Dark Side
Indulge your dramatic side with a dark guest bath. Thanks to Ogee Drop Tile in a deep blue that almost reads black, the powder room below achieves a moody modern look that guests won’t soon forget.

Pink bathrooms are back and better than ever–and the powder room is the perfect place to try out this color if you’re ready to dip your toe in. The sweet bathroom below used 1x1 mosaic glass tile to create a picture-perfect jewel box look with matching paint above.

Lean Into Your Look
Find a wallpaper you love? Here’s your chance to go all in, as Zosia Mamet did in her guest bathroom below. Richly saturated wallpaper featuring a gilded floral motif is an exquisite focal point, while a floor of black hexagon tile creates a beautiful foundation in this bold space.

Curate Your Own Gallery
The bathroom below has no shortage of decor ideas. The mosaic tile floor with a sweet floral pattern, the inviting bench, and even the striped shower curtain all add something special to Victoria Ford's space, but the aspect that ties the nautical theme together is the collection of wall art above the tile wainscoting proving that galleries don’t belong only in the living room.

Give Classic Subway Tile A Twist
We love how the bathroom below takes timeless, high-quality white subway tile and injects a dash of color with deep green along the bottom part of the wall. Bonus points for using a handsome Moroccan-inspired rug as a bath mat.

Bring in Brick
Brick makes a big impression in a compact bathroom, especially when it’s black! The bathroom below features a floor-to-ceiling wall of onyx-colored Glazed Thin Brick with matching black grout that brings the greyscale space to a dramatic focal point.

Make Bright Colors Your Friend
Move over, neutrals–powder rooms are the best place to play with bold colors. We love how Sara Simon of Handsome Salt pulled out the brightest color from the terrazzo countertop to create a sunny tile backsplash that’s anything but blah.
