Lounge the day away in this dreamy room filled with enough billowing, white curtains to grace the cover of a romance novel. The attention to detail and use of non-traditional materials (not a single tile in the room!) makes the space feel warm, even in an all-white palette. Design by Savio Firmino
Get Cozy by the Fire
A roaring fireplace right next to the sleek bathtub makes it tempting to soak all night. This serene, Old World space has swoon-worthy daytime amentites too, like Jerusalem stone countertops and a stunning arched window. Design by Debra Campbell
Double the Fun
Luxury means being able shower together in this dramatic enclosure complete with a boulder rock for seating. Earth tones, textured tiles, natural light and a steam shower complete this soothing, masculine space.
A Tub Fit for Two
This Imperia tub for two by Tyrrell & Laing, shown at Sir Richard Branson's Lodge Verbier in Switzerland, is one of the largest free standing tubs on the market. At 76.5 inches long and 45 inches wide, there's more than enough room to soak as long as you like. Photo courtesy of Tyrrell & Laing
Get the Mood Right
Bright overhead lighting can kill the mood, but two softly-lit sconces atop this vanity make it easy to linger a little longer.

Glamour for Two
Make bathing an event with a raised alcove complete with an open-air shower and candelabra. You may never want to leave designer Shelly Riehl David's serene space.
Sleek, modern lines and a view of the Potomac River set this master bath apart from the pack. Andreas Charalambous' his-and-hers mirrors are made of sandblasted glass, which allows ample natural light to flow into the room.
Dark wood, translucent screens and tiled walls create a rich and inviting spa setting. Low lighting sets the tone for a romantic rendezvous.
A few floating candles and a mirror turn this monochromatic area into the perfect place for a sexy soak.

Sit Down and Stay Awhile
A wall of candles, a double-occupancy shower complete with a long bench and an oversized tub ensure you'll take your time in this romantic space designed by Christopher Grubb.
Sometimes luxury simply means a sense of intimacy in a room. By placing this footed bath right in the middle of the his-and-hers vanities, we know this certainly isn't the guest bath. It's a romantic little reminder that this space has been customized for the couple who owns it. Beautiful exposed plumbing looks stunning against the marble flooring that continues all the way up the walls, and soft romantic lighting casts a warm glow. Design by DeCesare Design Group.

Room With a View
Idee Chic Designs' Natalia Smith took advantage of this home's lake view by placing a frameless glass shower in front of it. Watch the sunrise and sunset over the water, or unwind on the window seat as your partner showers.
One With Nature

Room for Two
There’s nothing less sexy than a crowded boudoir; this bath creates a luxurious space with enough room for a couple. A freestanding quarter-sawn island centered in the room matches the quartered oak double doors and offers continuity moving into the room. Each spouse has his or her own space with two large, white painted vanities, double medicine cabinets and framed mirrors. Design by Peter Ross Salerno

Relive the glamorous Art Deco age in this master bath outfitted with graceful curves and geometric forms. Its classic details and airy atmosphere may just inspire you to offer an old-fashioned romantic gesture.
A Bit of Glamour
Master bathrooms don’t have to be spacious to be luxurious. Glitzy materials like this flocked gold wallpaper, embellished pendant light and Calcutta marble countertop make this bathroom a place you’ll love to take your time. Design by Pal + Smith
Relaxing Bathroom Retreat
What's more luxurious than having your bathroom feel like any other room in the house? Using furniture in place of traditional pieces makes this space one you'd want to linger in, while the flokati rug is soft enough to lounge on when bathtime ends. Design by Savio Firmino
Soft, Dreamy Lighting
Soft lighting is a must in a romantic bathroom, and San Francisco-based Warren Sheets of Warren Sheets Design says LED lighting is the perfect solution. Try ambient LED lighting underneath the vanity, on the sides of niches or shelving or as cove lighting on the ceiling. Design by Michael Lipman; courtesy of Warren Sheets Design, Inc.
All White Everything
There's nothing sexier than an all-white bath decked out with luxurious materials, like granite and Carrera marble. Here, a spacious shower and bath enclosure provides ample room to unwind together after a long day.
