Scroll through these drop-dead gorgeous bathrooms that take relaxation to the next level
Why we love it: A curvy, freestanding tub, a twinkling mosaic-clad wall, a floor-mounted tap, and a side table to pop your glass of wine on… what’s not to love in this Sydney bathroom?
Why we love it: A deep tub, wraparound windows and stunning forest views – the perfect ingredients for relaxation.
Why we love it: Who ever said you need fancy fixtures and finishes to create a beautiful bathroom? With a white-washed backdrop, a simple display shelf, and a dash of navy on the floor, this room is the epitome of relaxed elegance.
Why we love it: Achingly simple lines, moody greys and plenty of breathing space combine to create a calm, meditative bathroom setting in this renovated Richmond terrace. Plus we love how the soft light filtering in through the window above adds a warm glow.
Why we love it: Forget taking a quick dip – with its high sides and sun-soaked setting, the Japanese-inspired tub in this renovated bungalow is designed for long, lengthy soaks.
Why we love it: Dreaming of installing a bath but short on space? Just turn the tub the other way! When the owners of this Darlinghurst terrace renovated, they managed to squeeze a bath and shower into a tiny spot adjacent to their courtyard garden.
Coloured glass louvres that open out onto a sunny garden prevent bathers from feeling too hemmed in. A perfect example of thinking outside the box! (Although you would, of course, have to be fairly agile to get in).
Why we love it: The sunken tub in this renovated Spanish bungalow has been set at the same level as the pool outside, and the window between the two areas swings opens all the way, making it hard to tell where one area ends and the other begins. Imagine trying to hold onto the day’s stress in a dreamy set-up like this.
Why we love it: With a bright white backdrop, lashings of natural light, and luxurious touches such as twin showerheads and double glass doors, just looking at this bathroom makes us feel refreshed.
Why we love it: So often grey can feel austere, but the addition of warm timber and greenery in this bathroom balances it out beautifully, creating a soft, modern feel.
Why we love it: Reclaimed oak walls, a twinkling chandelier and a simple colour palette. The freestanding tub has even been specially raised so that bathers can capture the stunning mountain views. Log cabin chic at its finest.
Why we love it: A built-in bath that makes the most of the tiny amount of space available, a medley of soft grey mosaic tiles, and a perfect view of the fronds outside – this bathroom oozes understated cool.
Why we love it: There’s an eclectic mix of styles at play here – a pretty chandelier, an industrial-inspired concrete basin, and a rustic wooden feature wall – yet somehow the combination works. Proof that you don’t need a perfectly matching scheme to create impact.
Why we love it: A soothing colour scheme, a three-sided fireplace and a freestanding tub perfectly positioned to take in the river views – this could quite seriously be the ultimate parents’ retreat.
Why we love it: Natural materials in understated hues encourage the eye to flow outwards towards 4.8 hectares of lush, green pastures – the only bold colour in this space. The award-winning bathroom in this new Berkshire build is a study in contrasts and a most serene bathing spot to boot.
Why we love it: Picture yourself lying back in this claw-footed tub as the roof above you opens up and you gaze upon the stars. Pure bliss.
Why we love it: Little touches such as softly rounded corners on the square-edged bath and the scalloped wall tiles in a perfectly tonal grey make the bathroom in this custom-made, pre-fab beachside home a winner.
Why we love it: Because what’s not to love about a huge, built-in bath overlooking a groovy urban rooftop terrace?
Why we love it: Warm timber, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a jaw-dropping view… imagine how easy it would be to wash away the worries of the day in this gorgeous bathroom?
Why we love it: Who said grey has to be clinical? Choosing a soothing shade and touch-me textures for the walls and floor adds softness to this loft bathroom.
Why we love it: Surrounded by warm timber on all sides and with sliding doors that open up to the outdoors, bathers in this timber holiday home on the picturesque Waiheke Island can enjoy a year-round connection to nature.
Why we love it: A huge walk-in shower, stylish geometric vanity unit, and cool Scandi colour scheme… seriously, what’s not to love?
