9 Bathrooms To Spend All Your Time In
Did you know that we spend an average of 1 1/2 years of our lives in the bathroom? That's close to 550 days and more than 13,000 hours! Now that you know this, you will understand why these home owners put so much thought and effort into the designs of their bathrooms.
Here are 9 stunning bathrooms that will make you rethink how this functional space that is often overlooked in the design process, should look like.
1. This bathroom might be the smallest, but it is no less interesting. The bathtub sits atop a polka-dot tiled wall and floor, and a ladder is quirky and doubles up as a rack. This is a great example of how to fully utilise a small space.

Cost of renovation for entire house: $50,000
2. Houses with the luxury of space can opt to build their bathrooms outdoors and that's exactly what this family did. Plants act as screens for users of the bathtub who take a relaxing soak under natural light. A play on shadows is created by the alternating wood and glass screen.

3. The bathroom is separated from the bedroom by a wall of transparent mosaic tiles and cement. With cement screed flooring and beehive tiles, the look is industrial and minimalist. The flooring extends throughout the apartment, giving coherence to the entire design.

4. Dark patterned marble slabs create a luxe look that makes a trip to this bathroom such an experience. A sunken white tub beside a high window provides a stark contrast to the dark interior. Strictly for exhibitionists only.

5. Occupying 800 sq ft, this huge open concept bathroom has a huge shower area as a centrepiece demarcated by a drain. A transparent tool acts as a holder for toiletries, while not disrupting the minimalist look. To provide privacy, the toilet bowl is hidden behind a wall.

6. This Bo Seng Ave bungalow has five bathrooms, each unique to the occupants' requirements. The most stunning has to be the timber-decked one with lush plants to give you the experience of showering outdoors, indoors.

7. Feel like you're showering outdoors in this beautiful open shower bathroom that features seamless stone tiles, lush green plants and wood accents. Bathed in natural light, it is reminiscent of bathrooms in the luxury resorts of Ubud and Phuket.
ID: Museum Home
Location: Jalan Senang (Landed)
Cost of renovation for entire house: $550,000
8. Now, this is one bathroom to take your breath away. A sunken bathtub sits as a centerpiece, encased in glass on three sides.
Location: Jalan Chempedak (Landed)
9. An almost all-white apartment is not one that most homeowners would go for, but this brave couple did, and the result is beautiful. In the bathrooms, grey and peach marbled tiles soften the starkness of the white. Classic Victorian washbasins are an interesting addition visually.
