For as long as bathrooms have existed, they have been a place of pampering and privacy. The biggest limitation in creating the bathroom of your dreams – one reminiscent of a hotel bathroom, perhaps, or a spa – will be space. If our home is our sanctuary, the bathroom is a sanctuary within a sanctuary – a sacred space. Since this is where we refresh, rejuvenate and recharge, trends in wellness continue to have a major impact on bathroom design.

Our approach in the bathroom has always been: hygiene first. Following this logic, the water closet should be in a separate space on its own, and every sanitary fitting suspended for easy cleaning.

Lighting is key to creating a relaxed atmosphere. Try to use indirect lighting that can be gradually dimmed.

While interior design is very important, equally essential to a haven for relaxation are candles, scents, bath salts and warm towels; heated surfaces for sitting or lying down to read a book; accessories and racks for wine glasses and magazines, and so on.

If space allows for a second bathtub installation – for relaxing rather than washing – a hammock bath from SplinterWorks or onsen bath from Hinokisoken would be nice.
