This bathroom design is absolutely Insta-worthy with its serene spa-like pristine beauty. Long passage with poured concrete pavers leads to a lovely area that opens into a lovely mini forest of Asian trees and ferns. The sleek bathtub on one side and white flawless white marble-countertop vanity against a large mirror, on the other, give this bathroom an ethereal look.

Besides providing the most amazing aesthetics, bathroom plants are a perfect way to take your relaxation to the next level. We love how this bathroom vertical garden is a sight for sore eyes. It’s truly magnificent. As you soak yourself in a bubble bath after a long day, you almost forget that you’re indoors at all. A piece of design advice: make your flooring dark wood for that perfect nature’s touch.

3. Build a full-fledged sauna

You can create a mini spa right at your home with a full-fledged sauna. The cost to redo your bathroom might increase a bit, but this kind of high-end feature is worth every penny. You can experience the most relaxing time in your bathroom — as and when you please. No more expensive trips to your local spas!  

Apart from the sauna, there’s something to be said for this brown, black, and white color scheme with a cool, avant-garde edge. The dark, moody tile floor and walls make the bathroom a perfect setting for romance, relaxation, and self-care. When it comes to an exuberant bathroom, go wild and let your design scheme reflect your personality as well as style. 

4. Bring in zen-like tranquility into your personal space

Now, here’s a unique way to bring in a spa-like experience to the bathroom. A plant-covered indoor veranda is on full display through a lovely round glass window. There’s a sleek soaking tub, enclosed within a concrete unit, plus a modern wet area that lend the room a beautiful vibe. A perfect bathroom design where architecture meets nature. It’s almost as cozy as sitting in your living room and looking out towards the outside world! Who wouldn’t want to spend some relaxing time here?

5. Place a standalone tub on a bed of pebbles

This serene master bathroom is tailormade for relaxation. The free-standing tub maintains the room’s open, airy feel. Natural light streams in through the roof creating a bright and soothing space. And, we love how the pebbles and the palm lend a relaxing vibe to the room. 

Do notice the wooden ladder in lieu of a traditional towel bar. It does its bit to warm up your look while providing a proper place for you to showcase your fancy towels. Overall, there’s an inviting, organic touch that only elements from nature can bring.

6. Design your private retreat with a jacuzzi

There’s something really soothing about wood. You can’t have enough of it if you want to create a cozy home. Here, bamboo flooring helps add a lovely warmth to this exquisite bathroom. The large window does its bit to let in a lot of natural light into the room. Also notice the abundance of another element of nature: plants. Plants have a unique way of making a room feel more inviting and sophisticated, and this bathroom is no exception. Consider including easy-to-care-for succulents or air plants for a low-maintenance, high-style solution.

Furthermore, the LED soft white bathroom lighting casts a lovely glow over the standalone bathtub.
