The philosopher. If you find yourself yearning to discuss the ins and outs of surrealism or metaphysics but your friends are more into celebrity gossip or talking about sports use your “me” time in the bathroom to ponder the meaning of life.

Ever considered going all black in the bathroom? It's certainly one way to make a glamorous statement. You can offset the look of all black and prevent it from being overwhelming with the use of high-shine tiles expansive mirrors and good lighting. In this bathroom a smaller-format tile on the floor prevents the shower recess from feeling so closed in. A black bathroom can be just as calming as one in lighter tones. Mosaic wall tiles with a hint of sparkle breathe life into this award-winning bathroom and wood adds a natural element that ties in with the lush garden outside. Dimmable lighting in a black bathroom delivers instant ambience. Metallic hardware pairs well with a mostly black bathroom bringing an elegant edge to a space that can otherwise feel austere. Even the ceiling is black in this bathroom but the hexagonal marble tiles on the floor and up one wall bring in just enough texture to make the room beautiful rather than boxy.
The artist. We're all born creative and many of us have a secret dream of casting off the shackles of conventional moneymaking in favor of letting our inner artist shine. Don't ignore the sculptor musician or painter inside you — life is far more fun when you let that artist play.

Mind the door direction. Which way does the shower door swing? Locating your towels so they can be grabbed quickly minimizes the distance one must lean out of the shower stall and therefore minimizes the risk of slipping and falling or experiencing an uncomfortable chill from spending more than a couple of seconds outside the shower stall's steamy cocoon. If you only have one wall to hang your towels make sure to have your shower door mounted to open in the most convenient direction.
Take your bathroom to a whole new level with a low glass panel that contains the water. Tiled floors and walls and a secure glass installation make it completely waterproof and surprisingly sturdy.
