Bathrooms are no longer considered just a place to wash the day away. These interior spaces are now being designed for relaxation, finished with luxurious materials and fittings. Beyond designer tapware and a generously sized tub, creating a bathroom with a view and drenched in natural light is the real ultimate home escape.

7 bathrooms with a view

These 7 bathrooms celebrate a view, whether that’s the pristine ocean or a courtyard garden oasis, and prove where your bathroom is located in the home is equally as important as the fit-out.
