One element that keeps this contemporary bathroom (click to enlarge) from looking dim or overly roomy is the usage of solid oak and wood surfaces.
Details are muted. Drawer and door pulls in the vanity, are clearly visible but subtle. The high wood wall by the tub is unadorned except for a grid pattern that helps give it some scope. A single band of bold green is the one stroke of color noted.
The shower design in a bathroom like this also helps the room feel clean and luxurious. Because of its simple style and light above it, this conventional built in doesn't look imposing, even though there's room for plenty of storage and shelf space.
On the other side of the spectrum, going for traditional designs in a bathroom does not necessarily mean making it dull or bland. There is a retro-themed bathroom that can be very stylish and one of a kind. The great part about a traditional bathroom design is that it makes you feel more at home and relaxed.
