Bathroom fixtures have become more water-efficient, especially if you choose WaterSense-qualified models. But the trend toward tricked-out showers, often with his-and-her “shower towers” that might include multiple showerheads and body sprays, will likely result in your water and energy use going up. It also means your bathroom's existing drain and plumbing lines might require an upgrade. “You may need to resize your water lines from half-inch to three-quarters,” says Petrie, an upgrade that can add hundreds, if not thousands, to your project. Thirsty fixtures may require you to upgrade your water heater as well, say, from a unit that holds 50 gallons a day to one that holds 80 gallons. That could cost you another $1,000 or so—figure on roughly $2,000 if you choose one of the energy-efficient hybrid water heaters that Consumer Reports' test have found to be good long-term investments.
A corner niche, just like.a corner shelf, is practical because it takes advantage of an otherwise unused space. This design strategy is particularly useful when dealing with a small space like this shower unit created by Perianth Interior Design for an extension of an old house in New York. Sometimes a shower niche can stand out and other times it can look very natural, like this one created for the Box House by 1:1 arquitetura:design. The niche has the exact same length as the window so it almost looks as if there are two openings in the wall. If you want the niche to double as an architectural feature and as an eye-catching decor element, a common strategy is to use tiles in a different color or style than those used for the rest of the walls. Vertical niches can emphasize the height of a space which is useful not only when you're dealing with a small bathroom but which small enclosed spaces such as shower units.

You'll want to have the wiring all installed behind the walls so no cords or wires show. Mirrors,get rid of the large wall-size frameless mirror over your sink and replace it with a beautiful framed mirror. Choose frame molding to enhance your space. Furniture, for a really luxurious feel, bring a piece of furniture into the bathroom. A tall armoire or chest can hold towels and bathroom necessities. A bench or lounge chair provides a spot to relax. Any woman would love a real dressing table in the bath. Any piece of free-standing furiture in a bathroom softens the look and adds a custom touch to the space.
