8 TAKE A SPA STYLE SHOWER
While a freestanding tub (preferably antique, and benefitting from a beautiful view) elevates any bathroom, the shower also has the power to add allure. Not just for busy weekday mornings, showering can be a restorative experience at any time. A large enclosure and good water pressure are the basic requirements, but your choice of brassware and wall treatment will determine its style. Traditional fittings often have a large rose shower head to deliver a heavy downpour, and tiles, taken up to the ceiling or ending at picture rail height, as shown here, complete the look.
