It's an adventure. Be kind to your bath with a few creative touches and let it repay you with a heavenly place to relax and unwind. Considering it is a place of ultimate privacy, the bathroom receives a lot of attention. Walk-in showers, soaking tubs and heated floors are taking center stage. The finishes, fixtures and mechanical equipment in the bath can make it one of the more expensive rooms in the house. With so much at stake, efficient design is more important than ever.
