Remodeling a bathroom is still considered a smart and economical choice for homeowners – they can enjoy the fruits of their labor now and recoup much of the costs later. The building blocks of any bathroom seem relatively elementary: sink, toilet, shower, vanity, mirror, lighting. However, choosing products for this room still intimidates many homeowners. Here are a few choices for the bathroom that we consider to be liberating, not limiting.

Ameli from Hastings Tile & Bath

Choosing pure white for your vanity should not feel as though you are settling. With the Ameli from Tulli Zuccari, you need never apologize. Graceful and elegant, the vanity sits atop two tapered legs that can be adorned with either gold or chrome accents. To coordinate the look of the entire piece, the towel bar under the vanity is also available in chrome or gold finishes. The vanity top is offered in a satin finish in pure white. The Ameli is perfect for minimalists who appreciate its modern appeal.

Sade from GRAFF®

Sometimes, simplicity is deceiving when people confuse it with a lack of imagination. The Sade collection from GRAFF could not be farther from that misconception. Sleek and elegant, with a savvy twist on contemporary, the Sade line has a curved spout which is flat – giving it literally more of an edge. The handles mimic the curve slightly, giving them a sensuous look.

Hartsdale from Hudson Valley Lighting

Hudson Valley Lighting takes vanity lighting in a more dramatic direction with the Hartsdale Collection. With its glass shades etched to mimic bark, and then reflected in the base below, the Hartsdale is both contemporary and organic – a unique twist. The Hartsdale is elegant without being too showy.
