Whether remodeling an existing space, creating an extension, or a new en-suite, carefully planning the layout of a bathroom can transform the space into a functional, stunning, well-designed wellness area that helps turn daily routine into a relaxing ritual.

Create a feel-good spa sense in the bathroom by evoking a feeling of space and luxury. The bathtub is seen as the key design piece of every luxury bathroom.

In the small bathroom, utilizing an empty corner will free up the central floor space, thus giving the illusion of a larger room. Building in multiple functions that take up a minimum space – like a shower bath – is a great choice for a smaller space, a guest ensuite, or when you only have one bathroom but want the luxury of choice. For instance, the Ebb shower bath delivers the comfort and curves of a freestanding bath in one space-efficient corner-hugging design.
