Romantic Bathroom Ideas
Browse romantic bathroom ideas and get ready to create an intimate and romance-inspired bath space in your home.
If you're looking to create an elegant and intimate bathing space in your home, you should consider incorporating some romantic bathroom ideas.
Start with color when envisioning a romantic bathroom design scheme. In general, romantic bathroom designs feature softer, lighter colors. Pale blues, light shades of red or pink, or even soft yellows can create a relaxing, romantic atmosphere.
Shade the Light
Subtle lighting creates a romantic mood, so the right shades are a master bath must. This sculptural shade has a frosted finish and laser-cut patterns that create a dreamy atmosphere. Photo courtesy of Kichler
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
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
This airy bathroom has its own balcony — perfect for stargazing after a romantic shower for two. The unique stone tub adds to the fresh and clean design. Room by Christopher J. Grubb.
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.
Glamorous Day Spa
Delight the woman in your life with a luxurious makeup area just for her. A cutout in the vanity reveals a chic standup mirror and glamorous accessories to match. Design by Bear-Hill Interiors
Bring Bling to the Bath
Warm up your master bathroom with glitzy, feminine details like this ornate chandelier and billowing, white curtains that keep prying eyes out. Design by Alicia Friedmann
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.

One With Nature
Wouldn’t you love to unwind in this neutral haven? The minimal furnishings allow the architectural elements in this airy bathroom to shine, like the vaulted ceiling, herringbone tile and picture windows. Design by SFA Architects
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
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
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.
Victorian-style bathrooms are well known for their romantic appeal. Common elements of their design are porcelain claw-foot tubs used as a bold and inviting centerpiece, or pedestal sinks in porcelain or metal for a space-saving and elegant touch.
Gilded metal hardware such as faucets, door handles and mirror frames—or even lighting fixtures like wall sconces—can add a romantic touch as well. And when you're thinking about lighting, consider a dimmer switch that can be employed when you want to use candles or simply lower the brightness for a more romantic feel.
