A powder room, also known as a half bath, contains simply a toilet and a sink. A 3/4 bath contains a toilet, sink, and either a tub or shower. A full bath contains all four elements – toilet, sink, shower, and tub. Master bathrooms are more likely to have a shower than they are a tub, although the showers of today's master baths are trending toward a larger footprint than traditional stand-up showers. Showers are certainly becoming more luxurious and elaborate, including multiple shower heads and streaming options, seating, and expanded walls. Enormous tubs reminiscent of jacuzzi-style fixtures did have their heyday, but they are going the way of all oversized and underused components in the bathroom. Instead, master bathrooms in particular are moving toward deeper, smaller tubs designed for two. This is both more economical in bathroom real estate as well as hot water heating.
For a more eclectic look with clean lines that still feels home, this bathroom design from Hastings Tile & Bath is a great launchpad for renovation ideas. The cabinetry sits on the floor like a traditional vanity, but instead of simply plopping the sink atop the base, it is mounted on the wall, hovering above the unit. This allows the fixtures and plumbing to become an accent feature and lightens the look. In addition to the counter space that is part of the sink unit, the longer base adds a convenient storage area. Twin mirrors do the job more stylishly than a large expanse of one big mirror. The options for a small powder room or tight bathroom are much more varied than they used to be. With new bathroom designs made specifically for tight spaces, homeowners are no longer forced to cram standard-sized fixtures into tiny bathrooms. Smaller basins like these from La Cava that are highly functional can be used with pedestals or wall-mounted cabinetry depending on the space and intended use. The self-rimmed sinks have fixtures that are mounted in the corner. This preserved valuable space along the edges, both for placing items as well as the overall space required for the installation. Slim vertical mirrors hide storage space within the medicine cabinets.
It’s not hard to spot a luxury bathroom. You basically know it when you see it, even if you don’t really know what are the elements that make a bathroom look luxurious and sophisticated in the first place. Every time it's different and every time it's a special set of design characteristics and elements that fulfill the role of focal points for the space. But enough theory and philosophizing for now. Let's have a look at some specific luxury bathrooms to see what makes them special. A marble bathroom has a lot of potential for looking sophisticated and luxurious regardless of the style. Of course, how much marble is in a bathroom is up to the designer to decide. Antolini offers some really amazing examples in this case, like this one for instance. For a lot of the luxury bathrooms designed by Antolini it's basically marble everywhere: on the floor, the walls, the counters and in the shower. You'd think such a simple design approach would result in a rather boring or perhaps overwhelming decor but the key here is finding the right balance between all these surfaces and all the patterns, colors and types of marble involved in the project.
