Attention to Detail

Splurging on high-end fixtures and custom finishes, like gold and crystal accents, is a beautiful way to add a touch of luxury and romance to a bathroom. Design by Peter Salerno

Room to Lounge

Bathrooms are becoming more than a place to bathe. Today's homeowners are turning their bathrooms into relaxing sanctuaries, complete with furniture, televisions, fireplaces and more. In this Moroccan-style bath designed for lounging and bathing, a custom chaise sits on an antique Oushak rug. The wall is covered in hand-cut Moroccan tiles, and the tub features a custom-designed wood canopy. Design by Chris Barrett

High-End Bathroom Materials

Heated Floors

Nothing says luxury like stepping onto a warm tile floor after a hot shower or bath. Radiant heating mats can be placed below tiles for a reasonable price — about $600 or less in a small 5x9 bathroom. Image courtesy of WarmlyYours

Cozy Fireplace

Walk-Thru Shower

Behind the tub, an interior window reveals the two-person shower, which can be entered from the zero-threshold passages on each side of the tub. The space combines sleek, simple elements with upscale touches like the the patterned metallic wallpaper and bronze fixtures. Design by Oakwood Homes

Chromatherapy Bathtub

Colored lights are said to be therapeutic, so manufacturers have started making showers and tubs that diffuse feel-good light into the water. Kohler's Sok tub allows you to bathe in eight colors — a full spectrum of light — for an experience that's both relaxing and invigorating. Image courtesy of Kohler

Toasty Towels and a TV

Heated towel racks and a flat screen create a relaxing environment in any bathroom. The freestanding rack ensures that your towels are warm and dry after soaking . Plus, they keep towels fresh longer by reducing mildew and allergens. Design by Audio Video Interiors

Spa-Style Bath

Morning Bar

A morning bar, which can include a coffee maker, a mini refrigerator, a sink, a wine chilling drawer and more, makes a typical day in your master suite feel like a stay at a high-end hotel. In this bathroom, a convenient bar is located just steps from the tub and spacious vanity.

High-Tech Traditional Bathroom

Made to resemble a traditional wood-burning stove, this bathroom's gas fireplace can be controlled via remote and complements the classic claw-foot tub. Design by Amy Levine-Hammer

Destination Wall Murals

You don't need a passport to escape, just a relaxing bathroom retreat. The bath is positioned to enjoy the view of French doors leading outward to the master's covered deck space and a beautifully painted mural of a European countryside. Design by Saddleback Interiors

Adjacent Dressing Room

A closet or dressing area flowing off the master bathroom is a luxurious and convenient feature. This layout allows one person to get ready in the bathroom while the other enjoys undisturbed sleep in the bedroom. Design by Lori Dennis

Walk-In Shower

Today's homeowners are expanding their showers and adding luxury fixtures and other features. In this walk-in shower, a rain showerhead provides a spa-like experience, while stone walls lend a high-end look. Design by Lori Carroll & Associates
