Clever materials choices like a wall of blue glass tile and a floating zebra wood vanity give this master bath a tropical feel. Rounding out the simple but sophisticated space is a walk-in shower with an oversized rain showerhead.
As seen on DIY Network's Bath Crashers, this luxurious shower features Kohler shower sprays and a rain showerhead for a spa-like experience. The neutral tile walls keep the space feeling clean and contemporary.
A rain shower head and teak bench offer an earthiness to this sleek, black, contemporary walk-in shower. A strip of river rock running down the wall spills onto the floor of the shower, creating an elegant break in the oversized wall tile.
Designer Jennifer Gilmer wanted a large freestanding tub and a shower in her master bath, but lacked the room to put them side by side. A trip to Japan inspired her to combine the two in an open space — this arrangement is common there. The light-flooded modern bathroom, with black mosaic tiled floor and insets and tan subway tile walls, features a deep sink, ceiling-mounted rain shower and oval-shaped pedestal bathtub.
This modern shower is surrounded by marble block walls. Small neutral mosaic tiling covers the floor below the rainfall showerhead. The shower also has an adjustable hand held showerhead. The doorless design makes for a large, open feel.
Four solar powered skylights with energy-efficient glass transform the master bedroom’s ceiling into a fifth wall with fresh air, natural light and sky views. The skylights include a built-in rain sensor that automatically close the skylights if it begins to rain.
Eastern-medicine student Stacy Kon remodeled the inefficient master bathroom of her Los Angeles home into this relaxing retreat every bit as spa-like as the spaces in which she practices one of her passions: acupuncture. A lover of all things blue, Stacy chose a refreshing shade of robin's-egg blue for the walls and ceilings, a good match with the white subway tile. A large rain shower head is mounted above the oversized tub, and a glass shower partition installed on a swivel bracket swings back flush with the back wall when the shower is not in use. When the shower is in use, the glass partition keeps spray from the showerhead contained within the soaking tub. Rather than extending the white tile for use on the floors, vanity and tub surround, Stacy opted for custom, cool gray concrete poured into forms made to size. Dark wood cabinets provide visual contrast to the light blues and grays.
A glass door opens into this spacious walk in shower. The three remaining walls are covered in white subway tile for a bright and spacious feel. Small white and gray square tile flooring compliments the monochromatic design. A built in cubby and small corner bench create easy storage and use throughout the space.
White subway tile covers the walls of this large shower. The wall above the rain shower head stops short of meeting the ceiling to let extra light into the space. A built in wall cubby provides easy storage and a small corner seat increases comfort.
A grated brown wall gives privacy to this outdoor shower while allowing it to retain an open feeling. A rain shower head peaks over the top of the wall. The surrounding greenery and turquoise curtains visible through the glass of the french doors add a touch of color to space without overpowering the natural feel.
The neutral porcelain tiles in this spa-like shower create smooth walls and seating. The pebble flooring is a beautiful touch that's pleasing to the feet. A square rain head complements the shape of the tiles.
This gorgeous backyard has an oasis-like feel. Located below the infinity edge pool is a lounge-like seating area, which can only be reached by walking over the concrete stepping pads. Water spills over the stacked stone wall creating the sound of rain sticks.
Responsible green features make the playhouse good for the family and the environment. The structure is clad inside and out with rough-sawn spruce boards, which are naturally weather resistant. Rainwater is captured through integral roof gutters to be deposited in a catchment barrel. The attached succulent and herb garden can then be watered using the rain barrel spigot. An outdoor chaise for one or two provides a spot to relax and is movable to follow the sun. A reclaimed sail has been repurposed to provide shade for the large south facing window in the summer. When opened, windows on both sides capture passing breezes and allow for passive cooling. One gable end of the playhouse includes a colorful climbing wall.
The gray tile walls of this modern spa bathroom mimic the look of rain showers, giving off a soothing vibe. A spacious, floating vanity features a sleek white countertop, while a freestanding soaking tub begs to be enjoyed. White marble tile flooring completes the chic, clean design.
Light blue glass subway tile delicately graces an accent wall, flowing into the shower and giving the feeling of space in this compact bathroom. The addition of a rain showerhead adds to the spa-like luxury while the geometric shapes of a small floating vanity and shelving ground the space with sophistication.
