1. Faux wood flooring. Wanting the look of wood floors in the bathroom without the risk of water damage has led many to embrace faux wood floors. For this bathroom, designer Martha O’Hara selected a 30-by-30-inch porcelain tile called Mansion Court from Akdo.

2. Integrated lighting. The designer of this modern home in Germany integrated lights into the vanity mirror. The streamlined look forgoes pendant lights from above or sconces to the side of the mirror. It also provides effective lighting at face level, which is ideal for plucking eyebrows, shaving and other grooming routines that benefit from good lighting.

3. Oversize sink. If you’re not a fan of water splashing from the sink onto the countertop or floor, you may want to consider a larger basin. In this stylish Boston bathroom, designer Kristina Crestin selected a 48-inch-wide Brockway sink from Kohler.

4. Glass blocks. This contemporary bathroom by Bottegadesign in Russia shows how a shower wall made of glass block — a popular style in the 1980s — is still a sleek look.
