White bathrooms are often misunderstood and perceived as boring, but they can be extraordinary with the right design. Our new bathroom has come a long way since my initial design board, and it’s been one of the easiest projects I’ve done so far. Today I’d like to share some simple design tips for all white bathrooms to help you with your next remodel.
A huge thank you to eFaucets for sponsoring today’s post!

1 // Choose One Statement Piece
Choose one statement piece that gives the room that WOW factor!
I chose this tall arched Venetian mirror as my statement piece, and it immediately draws my attention when I walk into the room. In addition to its large size and shape, the antiqued border makes it one-of-a-kind.
2 // Use Varying Shades of White
Use varying shades of white that complement each other, which in turn will also make them stand out from one another.
Our bathroom vanity is an off-white color, but it looks perfect in front of crisp white walls. The chevron tile floors catch the eye with its pattern and marbling.
A little about our vanity…
A pretty white vanity of great quality and price was actually difficult to find. Everything I found was either really expensive or made of low-quality materials, except for this one. For $999, this 48-inch vanity comes with the Carrara marble top and porcelain white sink. Similar vanities are selling online for $1,500 to $2,500 which wasn’t within our budget.
3 // Add Warmth With Decor
Add warmth to the room with decor and finishes.
You can switch out decor and finishes as often as you like. Unless money is no concern, you won’t be switching out that colorful tile you had to have for years to come.
4 // Find the Perfect Hardware
Find the perfect hardware and don’t be afraid to mix metals!
In fact, I am loving this design trend… all of your hardware does not have to match. Start by choosing one dominant metal – mine is chrome – then add one contrasting metal to provide warm or cool hues. Remember to keep it subtle and stick to two finishes.
5 // Put Textures and Patterns to Use
Put textures and patterns to use by incorporating multiple layers of each.
This linen ruffle shower curtain gives off a cozy and luxurious vibe and the chevron floor pattern adds an element of fun!
Where to Buy Fixtures & Hardware
We’re moving towards a world where everything will be purchased online. I am in Home Depot often, and when I started sourcing this project I stopped by the bathroom aisle at my local store. The selection of fixtures & hardware in-store was so small compared to online, and what was on display was low-end at best.
I’ve turned to online retailers when sourcing my projects, and that brought me to eFaucets.com. They have hundreds of fixtures & hardware options for every room… it can almost be overwhelming.
How to Shop for Fixtures & Hardware Online
Here’s how I shop at eFaucets.com – I filter by rating FIRST. Filter for only 4+ Stars, if not 5 Stars, and then by Finish if you know you are looking for chrome, brass, satin nickel etc. This eliminates a lot of time spent browsing and immediately gives you the most relevant options.
You’ll naturally be drawn to certain styles. Write down the Model Number of your top three favorites, and then read each set of reviews. If there is nothing that concerns you, follow your gut or make a decision based on the price.
Perks of Shopping with eFaucets
The biggest perk is that your order is tax-free. They also offer free shipping on standard orders of $35 or more, plus free freight delivery on over 10,000 items. If you change your mind or aren’t happy with your purchase, they have 60-day hassle-free returns.
I do miss being able to touch and feel things in person, but unfortunately, retail stores just aren’t carrying much of a selection anymore.
