Bath Room Decor

Glass mosaic tiles on the bathroom walls and tub surround create a magical mirrored effect in this spa-like retreat. A waterfall tub fills the space with the calming sound of moving water. The barrel-vaulted ceilings are covered in beautiful handmade teak shakes.

Spacious and minimalist, this master bath is designed to be a sea of tranquility. A glass block window in the oversize shower assures privacy and lots of natural light. Overhead a large "rainfall" showerhead offers a luxurious soaking.

Faced in limestone, a half-wall rises up as a privacy partition for the soaking tub, without blocking light or views. The divider blends almost seamlessly with the limestone walls and floors.

Colorful lively tile patterns and a chartreuse chest of drawers prevent this bath from feeling institutional for its handicapped resident. A shower without a doorway, a sink without a base cabinet, and a door without a threshold make this bath wheelchair-accessible.

To give this master bathroom a decidedly Spanish feeling, the owners used intricate grilles in the windows and mimicked the look with etchings in the glass shower enclosure. A tile floor with an inlaid vine design also contributes to the European feel.

To give a small, lackluster space European flair, the designer relied on tile, and an earthy palette of golden yellow, terra-cotta, and bronze. Tiles cut from ancient stones figure prominently in the look and provide a rich patina.

Wood floors, silver hardware and fixtures, and white cabinetry are cool contemporary touches in this dreamy bathroom. Wainscoting topped by warm khaki walls keep the room from feeling ultra-modern. Exposed rafter beams make the space feel larger.

The bathtub was placed near the windows and is accessible by stepping through the shower area. A half-wall of glass separates the shower from the vanity space to keep water in the "wet" area of the room.

Mosaic tiles in two soft shades of blue-green give this updated 1950s bath the look of ocean water. Underfoot a terrazzo floor shows off specks of aqua. Long horizontal windows on three walls infuse the space with light but allow for total privacy.

What are the elements of elegance in this bathroom? They include free-standing furnishings, warm wall color and lighting, symmetrically placed pedestal sinks, framed artwork, and a display of luxury items and accessories.

This vintage-with-a-twist bathroom features cottage prints in colors that are young and hip. Floral, stripe, and other patterns mix and match with ease thanks to a consistent pink, green, and blue palette. The hot pink walls are bold and lively, while the white woodwork and tile keep the room light and airy.

With a little planning, a bathroom can be a tranquil place to feed your soul. In this master suite, a wide deck made of Corian surrounds a jetted soaking tub. Wood beams, wood floors, and shuttered doors add to the Zen experience.

With an upper-level perch and a wooded location, this serene bathroom is free from privacy concerns. A wall of windows, free from treatments, minimizes boundaries between inside and out, allowing bathers in the under-the-windows tub or the glass-wall shower to commune with nature and enjoy the views.

White cabinets are set off with a frosting of marble countertop as well as marble flooring underfoot. A long wall of mirror has been divided with molding and fitted with shaded sconces. An antique runner on the floor includes deeper tones and interesting texture.

A London hotel suite inspired this elegant bathroom. Linen-color limestone on the floor estalished the serene color scheme for the bath. Molding adds visual interest and is covered in silver leaf to echo the shine on the vanity, sconces, and mirror.

Placing the tub under a bank of corner windows helps this master bathroom take full advantage of its amazing location. Simple window treatments pull back to let bathers enjoy natural light and the view of a secluded backyard.
