Nature at its best: viewed from a steaming shower. The bathroom facilitates some of the most mundane daily acts, but don't let that fool you into settling for keeping the bathroom itself mundane.
Here, the natural wood and stone elements work so well with the bathroom's main element: water. The meticulously-designed windows shed a little light on this relaxing bathroom.
Yes, don't underestimate what a window can do for such a small room. Here the view is unobstructed by any curtains or shades. Unless you'll be flashing the world, think of keeping the bathroom window free and clear. EM Forester would like this one. Talk about a room with a view.
Think of the sal de bain as a spa. Less is best. Keeping the decor to a minimum allows just one room where you can go to literally clear your head. Keep necessary bathroom items in well-organized containers, baskets, or away in drawers.
Yet it is the well-chosen details that make a very private space also a very personal space.
If complete updating and renovation in what your bathroom needs, don't forget what a new tile job can do for the entire look.
Here the bathing area is included in the whole bedroom suite, creating a pleasant room that, except for the need for food, one may never want to leave.
Another example of innovative tile. These stripes keep the bathroom clean and conservative without losing any uniqueness.
