bainUltra beone japanese style soaking tub

Perfect Paradise

This bathroom takes inspiration from Japanese gardens and Buddhist temples and brings it home. The Japanese-style soaking tub (the BeOne by BainUltra!) is the perfect place to unwind after a long day, while the reflective atmosphere created by the stone vessel sink and minimalist vanity keep visual clutter to a minimum to further the zen vibes. The use of natural materials, such as wood and stone, creates a warm and inviting space, while the clean lines and simple design make it a timeless look.

The Sleek Escape

This contemporary, clean bathroom is a great example of how to create a cohesive design with a spin of personality. The use of natural wood, matte black fixtures, and concrete walls creates a unique and eye-catching look that make this bath as anything but basic. The wall-hung vanity provides ample storage space without taking up the whole room, and the freestanding black tub keeps the contemporary style consistent.

Refined Relaxation

This elegant contemporary bath is the perfect place to relax and unwind. The two Robern white vanities provide ample storage space, while the Robern mirrors with built-in lighting ensure that you always look your best. The chrome fixtures keep the focus on the textured freestanding baths and vessel sinks from the Kallista Argile Collection.


Technology Spotlight: Air Jet Tubs

You probably remember the days when everyone wanted a jacuzzi-style tub. Then we all learned how much work it takes to clean them! Luckily modern technology has an alternative that gives you the massaging functions of a jacuzzi with way easier cleaning. Air jet tubs have a number of advantages over traditional jacuzzis, like a longer lifetime, consistent pressure, and easy cleaning . Since the jets are pushing air instead of water, you don’t need to worry about mold and mildew building up.
Other options for elevating your own personal spa are light therapies, aromatherapy, and built-in heaters that keep your water warm for hours.

Soak in Style

This on-trend Roaring 20s inspired bathroom is a true showstopper. The use of gold and matte black throughout the bathroom creates a sense of glamour and sophistication. The gold fixtures add a touch of luxury, while the matte black provides a contrast that helps to ground the space. The black and gold tile on the walls and floor is a bold statement, but it is also balanced by the more understated elements of the design, such as the white vanity and the clear glass shower enclosure.
The freestanding Ceric bath by Kohler that commits to the art deco sensibilities of the past century come together to create a space that is both stylish and classic.

The use of dark tile and moody lighting creates a sense of intimacy and seclusion, while the double showers with body sprays offer a luxurious showering experience. The Kohler Stargaze freestanding bathtub is the perfect place to relax and unwind after a long day.

Naturally Au Naturale

This Southwest-inspired tub room features a one-of-a-kind freestanding bath carved from one solid block of black granite stone, the Papilion bath by Stone Forest. The use of warm, earthy tones and natural materials creates a sense of comfort and tranquility, while the freestanding tub offers a deep and natural place to soak away your cares.



industrial, transitional bathroom with open floorplan, high ceilings, concrete walls, and freestanding Victoria and Albert bathtub

Industrial Luxury

This industrial-inspired, spacious bathroom is a true showstopper. The freestanding oval tub Ios by Victoria&Albert, concrete-look tile, exposed brick, and brass fixtures from the House of Rohl come together to create a space that is both stylish and luxurious.
The use of concrete-look tile on the walls and floor creates a sense of ruggedness and authenticity. The exposed brick adds a touch of warmth and character, while the brass fixtures provide an upscale touch. The sleek, modern design is reminiscent of industrial design, while the generous size ensures that you can relax and unwind in style.
