Mostly B’s—Classic Couture

You like symmetric looks and love the idea of a Jack and Jill sink vanity, wrought iron towel racks, and neat drawers and compartments that gives everything an organizational home.

Mostly C’s—Rustic Revision
You are inspired by scenic rocks, rustic lodges, and the movement of repurposing anything old to something useful and new. Your bathroom should reflect your taste, so try a rock wall with a cascading waterfall faucet or be adventurous and add a motley of wood to accent cabinets, floors and doors. Don’t be afraid to add some flare—there are some stunning chandeliers that add perfect lighting to rural rooms. To go the extra country mile, try antler hooks for towels and an animal hide as a throw rug.
Mostly D’s—Serenity Spa
You love long massages, tranquil tunes, and the idea of a stress-free life. To create a Zen-feel in your bathroom, choose a neutral palette of colours and accent with natural items such as plants, water-features, and rolled towels like your favorite spa would offer. Be liberal with candles and if you can, invest in a soaker tub bedecked with jets or a luxurious rain shower. For faucets and lighting fixtures, choose shapes that flow and mimic the idea of water. Create a calming paradise for you to start your day in!
