    • Edgy, Urban-Loft Bathroom

      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.

    • Earthy Contemporary Bathroom

      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.

    • Bathroom with Exotic Ambience

      Warm wood and cool stone give this spa bath the feeling of an exotic location, like Bali, yet with a contemporary feel. The oval tub is wrapped in a rosewood veneer coated in clear lacquer. Water flows from a ceiling-mount spout. Stone covers the floor, and the tub deck is surfaced in quartz.

    • Contemporary Bathroom with Concrete

      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.

    • Bathroom with Angular Geometry

      Space claimed from a bedroom closet added 4 feet to the length of this remodeled bath. New fixtures are shaped to fit in the corners to take full advantage of the additional space. Honey-toned stone flooring and shower walls complement the vanity countertop for a rich warm look.

    • Bathroom with Floating Elements

      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.

    • Bathroom with Roman and Victorian Details

      A mix of natural stone, with its rugged earthiness, and the refined elegance of rich wood and stained glass reflect this master bathroom's dual heritage. Both Victorian and Roman influences can be seen in these materials and in the color palette of deep browns, reds, and taupes.

    • Bathroom with Japanese Influence

      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.

    • Serene, Natural Bathroom

      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.

      Spa Escape
