Eliminating traditional room boundaries continues to be a top trend in interior design.
Even the bathroom is developing beyond its original role as a separate wet zone into a luxurious oasis of well-being and, as such, an integral part of the living space. In particular, the boundary between bathroom and bedroom is disappearing. Doors are giving way to curtains or glass partitions. Free-standing, extra-large bathtubs right next to the bed have become a design statement. Cozy wall colours, natural daylight, and continuous wooden flooring connect the two rooms, creating a feeling of warmth and security. The result: a pleasant space to hang out, where openness and transparency reign. Indirect, individually controlled lighting provides the perfect finishing touch, letting you set the mood and get comfy in your private spa.
