Steely blue glass tile in the shower creates a moody contrast in this predominantly bright white bath. For added functionality, designer Ann Lowengart works in a small vanity area where the homeowner can relax while touching up her makeup.
Slip In for a Soak
In this chic bathroom, a sculptural slipper tub invites homeowners to ease in for a long soak or step into the massive walk-in shower for a relaxing massage courtesy of one of the many gold jets.
A (Bath)Room With a View
Telescoping patio doors open wide to give this bathroom an indoor/outdoor feel. Not for the modest, this sleek bath also features a wall-less shower -- multiple showerheads are positioned in the middle of the room with a nearby drain to whisk the water away.
Sparkle With a Chandelier
Lighting is a foolproof way to glam up any bath but to really bring the glitz, rely on a chandelier. But, safety first: When hanging lighting directly above a tub, be sure to follow building codes for your area. Many specify that the base of the chandelier or any pendant-style light be a minimum of 8 feet above the tub with the idea that you shouldn't be able to touch any part of the fixture while standing in a tub filled with water.
A Spot for Lounging
This bath truly is a retreat with a sunny nook providing a cheery spot for soaking in the slipper tub. Flanking the tub is a pair of plush velvet armchairs perfect for having a pedicure or just relaxing. This massive bath also features a private shower and sleek, floating vanity.
Stylishly Stash Your Stuff
An X-frame metal etagere provides stylish storage space for bathroom essentials like toilettries and towels while also offering a sunny spot for growing plants.
Cool and Creamy
Ethereal is a good description for this dreamy bath that features a streamlined floating vanity and frameless shower door. A creamy marble slab wall in the shower adds movement while coordinating stone tiles on the bathroom's walls and floor complete this spa bath's luxurious look.
Back in Black
Large black tiles extend from the floor to the ceiling of this shady and serene spa bathroom. A freestanding soaking tub offers a place to relax and unwind under a pair of slim frosted windows for added privacy.
Pretty in Pales
This soothing pale gray-and-white spa bath features a stress-busting walk-in shower with multiple shower heads and body sprays. A heated towel rack and radiant floor heating keep chills at bay.
Minimal Can be Maximal
Sleek and streamlined, this master bath is a spa-like retreat where the owners can relax and unwind after a long day. Gray stone tile on the floors and walls creates a smooth, clean design while high-tech features include custom-height water jets for stress relief and muscle therapy and LED soft white lighting.
Luxury for Two
This luxurious spa bath features a freestanding slipper tub and dual vessel sinks with open shelving storage below. Add in the wrought-iron chandelier and tray ceiling and the elegance factor is off the charts.
This polished bath features a built-in vanity area with backlit mirror — ideal for applying makeup or styling your hair before a big night on the town. The long, richly stained vanity contains lots of drawers and cabinets for stashing toilettries and other necessities.
Large and Luxurious
It would be easy to spend a few blissful hours in this gorgeous spa bathroom, full of pamper-me details like the luxurious soaking tub and spacious walk-in shower. In addition to high-end fixtures, this bath also boasts privacy — the bottom panes on the windows are frosted so the homeowners can enjoy views of the outdoors without worrying about anyone looking in.
Sleek + Chic in Spain
Located in Madrid, this spa-style bath is a luxurious spot to disappear to at the end of a stressful day. Enjoy a luxurious soak in the incredible freestanding tub, wash away your cares in the walk-in shower or simply enjoy the zen-like calm of the space.
High Style Meets Function
This luxurious spa bathroom features dual wood vanities, a dramatically vaulted ceiling and a sculptural freestanding tub. A wide window fills the space with natural light, illuminating the bath's breathtaking marble floors.
Cue the Calacatta
An accent wall of high-end Calacatta marble is an eye-catching backdrop in this sleek master bath where black-and-white concrete floor tiles add graphic punch.
