Infinity Bath

Bathroom turns spa with the introduction of an overflowing bath. The effervescent bath with extra-deep reservoir features chromatherapy lighting and continuous water flow. Design by Vern Yip

Salvaged Shower Door

Seamless glass shower partitions are popular for bathroom remodels in any style of home. Since the glass allows 100% of all natural light to flood the space, it aids in making bathrooms feel larger in size. This custom factory window made of tempered glass and raw steel adds an industrial vibe. Design by Brian Patrick Flynn

Freestanding Tub

Today's tubs are less likely to be positioned in a corner where they take up valuable square footage. A freestanding tub is the focal point of this bathroom, while the chandelier adds a touch of sparkle in the rustic space. Image courtesy of Toto

Spacious Shower

Many homeowners today are forgoing tubs for expanded showers, which can include body sprays, multiple showerheads, therapeutic lights and more. Image courtesy of Produits Neptune

Japanese Soaking Tub

Deep soaker tubs are replacing water-jet Jacuzzi tubs in today's bathrooms. A Japanese soaking tub is the focus of this space, surrounded by glass-paneled doors. The tiled floors in muted tones contribute to the relaxing experience.

Seated Shower

Seats are a popular feature in today's showers. This spacious shower is equipped with a bench along the wall, which offers users a place to sit and enjoy a spa-like shower.

Steam Shower

Steam showers are a luxurious feature that more and more homeowners are splurging on. This master steam shower features an onyx bench and oversized niche for storage. The space is a true spa experience for users. Design by Nancy Leffler Mikulich

Roman Shower

The Roman shower, which is designed without a rim to step over, is the best design for people of all ages, and especially those who use walkers or wheelchairs. The shower has no lip at the floor, which slopes down toward the drain.
