Wet room dreams...

Yesterday I spent the entire afternoon doing serious research at the local bookstore with my partner. The fact that the reseacrh involved us looking through delicious bathroom design books for four hours doesn't lessen the seriousness. You see we are in the process of buying a little flat (really exciting and scary at the same time)... and it's crying out for a new bathroom (it's crying out for a lot of other things too, but our budget can only really stretch to a bathroom for now).

So now whenever I close my eyes I see basins and shower screens and gorgeous tiles and floating toilets and underfloor heating. Trying to work is impossible, I cannot pull myself away from my lavatorial daydreams. It's becoming an obsession.


This is what the bathroom looks like in our flat-to-be -- definitely not my dream bathroom


This is more like it, I love the storage solution underneath the sink, it looks so elegant (although I would probably never fold the towels that neatly...


Gorgeous tiles, and I love the shape of the basin...



Oh yes...


I love love love this... the colour of the splash back, the recessed shelving, the lighting. Just gorgeous.

Ooh, how I do love those modern/minimalist bathrooms! But keep in mind that they are sometimes difficult to keep tidy and clean...that glass shower door, for instance, will look stained with water residue in no time!

Congrats indeed! How exciting. I can easily daydream about the same thing. Designing something new and putting your very own touch on it is pure delight in my book.
I love the things you are daydreaming over. I must admit I wouldn't fold the towels either, I'd roll them neatly! :)HA

congratulations on the new flat :)

i love that last one ~ *gasp* love love love ~ my bathroom is horrid but will have to do for a long while as other than ripping up the lino and putting in tile, it is the last project on the long list of projects ;)

I love bathroom fantasizing (you know what I mean); I don't think you can go wrong with any of your choices--although my only requirement is a nice tub :)

we live in a rented flat and the bathroom is my least favourite room. in fact i don't like it at all because it doesn't even have a window! but because the flat is rented we can't do anything about it.
have fun with the new flat!

These are so fantastic. I recently did a big bathroom entry on my blog with tons of pics and links, in case you are interested:-)
