Most people will confess that too much stuff in their bathroom distracts from the soothing, spa-like experience they desire. They notice that homes staged to sell have excess furniture and unsightly clutter removed in the living room and bedrooms. The primary features of a bathroom — a vanity, shower, tub and toilet — however, have to stay put. That means designing a bathroom sanctuary takes skill and plenty of concealing storage.

Kitchen and bathroom remodels have long been the most desired and expensive home improvement projects. Adding to the decision to upgrade: At a time with a low number of residential properties for sale and higher mortgage interest rates, more people who already have a home are remodeling rather than moving to upgrade their lifestyle, according to the 2023 U.S. Houzz & Home Study.

Here’s a sample of professionally designed Portland bathrooms in luxury homes for sale that might inspire an improvement idea.
