Although bathrooms are very utilitarian in nature, they can be some of the most beautiful spaces in a home. The right bathroom can invoke feelings of peace and relaxation. So it’s no wonder why so many homeowners spend tens of thousands of dollars creating that perfect atmosphere!
Below are five of our favourite bathrooms on popular design website, Houzz.com.
This bathroom is from the prestigious Leavitt Residence in the Chicago neighbourhood of Bucktown. Its contemporary design is in line with the rest of the interior in this 1920s mercantile building. The bathroom is divided into separate areas with cedar-planked walls that give the space an earthy feel. The shower stall is located to the right of the free-standing tub — while the left side is dedicated to a separate “toilet room”.
Wendy Ann Miller
This bathroom was designed by the prestigious interior decorating firm, Wendy Ann Miller. It not only features clean lines and luxurious finishes — but the space has been maximized with practicality in mind. The vanity features his-and-her’s sinks, along with separate storage spaces for linens and other toiletries. Extra-large mirrors give the illusion of ample space. And the picture window along the bathtub allows natural light to flood the room.
Shane D. Inman
This bathroom is found in the portfolio of well-known New York designer, Shane D. Inman — part of a project known as ‘21st Century Bungalow’. The custom-designed master bath features double-vanities and a sit-down make-up counter. The tiled walls and wood-panelled cabinetry give the space a country-like charm. Meanwhile, the bronze plumbing fixtures give the bathroom a rustic, yet luxurious, touch.
Call this the Rolls Royce of showers. This space is part of a bathroom that is the work of Chicago-based firm Drury Design. It features six body sprays, a series of hand-held shower heads and a high-pressure rain shower that hangs from the ceiling. It is certainly an oasis of peace after a stressful day. The large porcelain tiles not only bring luxury … they’re also very easy to clean!

This bathroom is one of our favourites because of its minimalist design. The space is optimized for maximum efficiency, yet it doesn’t sacrifice on aesthetics. Users have the option of soaking in the pure white quartz tub, or taking a quick rinse in the open-concept shower. The toilet is cleverly hidden behind the bathroom’s dividing wall.
