Back to nature
If you have any kind of view to speak of, take advantage of it with a floor-to-ceiling window and your bathroom will appear to merge with the outdoors. Note here how the trees are mirrored in the water's surface. This view, combined with the muted green slate tiles and the lack of ornamentation, give this bathroom the feel of a minimalist retreat in the woods. Too serene for words!
Take a cue from the kitchen by packing the bathroom with built-in storage to hide your clutter. n Increase storage by adding a wall unit over the tank of the toilet or bring in a portable bamboo stand.
Make your theme free and luxurious with a generous freestanding bath.
On the flip side
For a very special experience, this hand shower's pivoting head with four separate sprays will thrill you.
If you can get your hands on an old farmhouse-style table and a couple of old mirror frames, you have the makings of a one-of-a-kind bathroom, steeped in old-world charm. Furnishings made from recycled pieces are very popular and add a sense of history to the room. Pair these with natural stone flooring - irregular sizes are best.
Footed tubs were a way for well-to-do Victorians to indulge in luxury, but it's an enduring style that suits all bathrooms. And it breaks up a room's boxiness beautifully.
If there's a room in your home with big windows, think about making it your bathroom. Just look here! And if you have views, keep colours and materials neutral so the vista takes centre stage
