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

Romantic Inspiration

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.

Shiny Shower

Opalescent tiles make this oversized shower seem like a sexy discotheque for two. A large jacuzzi tub provides another place for a couple to relax and rekindle. Design by Amy Bubier.

Heavenly Escape

Embrace a little danger by having your shower open to the heavens and only partially enclosed. Dave Stimmel keeps his design flirty in this master bath.

Open Air

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.

What a Flirt

Play peekaboo behind a translucent glass shower with flirty polka-dot cutouts. Design by Andreas Charalambous.

Couples Retreat

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.

Romantic Age

Dark wood, translucent screens and tiled walls create a rich and inviting spa setting. Low lighting sets the tone for a romantic rendezvous.

Float On

A few floating candles and a mirror turn this monochromatic area into the perfect place for a sexy soak.

Mindful Steam

Multicolored blue and gold tiles cover the benches and ceiling in this Zen-inspired steam room. LED lighting and relaxing fountain complete this design by Shelly Riehl David.

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

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.

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

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.

His-and-Hers Intimacy

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

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

Art Deco Inspiration

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.

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.
