These gorgeous bathrooms defy conventional labels. Find ideas for your own unique style.
This master bath is actually located in the suburbs, but it has a polished urban feel. A black-and-white color scheme, enhanced by chrome and glass, increases the design drama, while clean lines and sculptural shapes reduce visual clutter. The floor is covered in black rubber tile.
Sleek lines and tall corner windows create a contemporary look in this oceanside bath, and natural surfaces draw the feeling of nature indoors. Textured glass provides privacy, but when you sit in the rounded Roman spa tub you can see trees and sky through the upper panes.
It's a hard act to follow: cast-concrete sinks and backsplash in this contemporary bath make a bold design statement. The precast sinks are set into custom ash cabinetry stained a semitransparent white that lets the grain shine through. A tall cabinet between hides all clutter -- a contemporary requirement.
With water as the inspiration, the goal in this upper-level master bath was to elevate the room's elements. The countertops, made of big slabs of limestone, seem to float, as do the sink and tub. Unlike most tubs, the one here touches only a small area of wall beneath the window, critical to the room's unfitted feel.
Keeping things simple may be the key to bliss -- at least that's the sense this Japanese-style bath imparts. True to the Asian aesthetic, the bath elegantly combines the warmth of mahogany with the cool, clean look of limestone. You sit upright in the soaking tub, followed by a shower behind glass.
Serenity and simplicity surround all those who visit this contemporary guest bath. Simple shapes, a mix of smooth and rough textures, and rich color create a dramatic experience. A custom console-style teak vanity supports a shapely sink, and walls and floors of slate provide naturally subtle color and an earthy texture.
