These days, do you ever notice that it seems that there is a blending of rooms? Sometimes I chuckle to myself [or out loud] that “all I need is…” And I could LIVE in that one room and sometimes that room is the bathroom! For the purposes of this post about interesting bathroom ideas, I’m also going to include powder rooms.
What are some interesting bathroom ideas that make it feel more like a living room, etc?
- hardwood floors
- real furniture, not just built-in pieces
- cabinets for sinks made from real furniture
- comfortable chairs, chaises and even sofas
- big, gorgeous windows
- beautiful mirrors with antique frames
- beautiful non-bathroom-type lighting
- storage in containers not typically used in bathrooms
- real rugs instead of bath mats
- non-bath-type accessories
- art [which needs its own post]
[Some of these I could not find the original source and therefore, they are uncredited.]
Love the antiques and rusticity
Big window with luscious drapes
William and Mary High Boy and leaded glass window. The hell with privacy when you have a window as gorgeous as that!
A bathtub in the middle of the living room? Hey, why not?
Ya know… if I had a bathroom that looked like this… I would invite all of my friends in for tea too! :]

If only there was a way to hide the plumbing, but otherwise, love, love this!
So happy that our fave mag, Domino is back. Antique Oriental in the bathroom? Love it! Antlers? They look nice here, but just don’t think it’s me.
I found this on Robert Couturier’s pinterest board. hahaha! [love him!] What a pisser! [sorry, I couldn’t resist] It def gives a whole new meaning to reading in the john, now doesn’t it? ;]
The lamp makes this bathroom feel like an English Apothecary
Fabulous, exotic bath!
Next, we will explore how to use art in the bathroom.
