Bathroom Design: Focus On Flooring
Contributed By: Carmen M. Natschke
Inspired by the design of serene spas and luxury hotels, the bathroom has beautifully evolved from a purely functional space into a relaxing in-home sanctuary. From the ceiling to the floor, every interior detail combines to create an unforgettable experience. If you're ready to design the bathroom of your dreams, you'll find plenty of inspiration in the exquisite work of four top interior designers who've created stunning bathrooms (with striking floors) in a range of styles from traditional to contemporary.
