|The bathroom is a paradox: as the most private room in any living space, it is also a room that everyone from the closest family members to the most casual guests visit. Today's bathrooms have grown away from being simply water closets, and more time than ever is invested in selection of materials and decorations for these essential, yet relatively private, spaces. In recent years, bathroom design has taken cues from lush, exalted styles traditionally reserved for bedrooms and other private spaces in the home.
Miniarch: Bathrooms is a photomontage of elegant, austere, unique, and, at times, clever accessories and fixtures for the bathroom. Designer sinks, showerheads, basins, backsplashes, countertops, natural tile, and more will inspire designers, architects, and the creative homeowner with new ideas and options for the bathroom. This book presents a selection of contemporary designs that advocate sensual, luminous spaces in which our daily ablutions become genuine pleasures.
