Beyond necessity, a home’s bathroom serves to bookend every day; we start there in the morning and finish there before retiring for the evening. These crucial rooms are at times private escapes, though are often shared with guests and family, ultimately becoming a signature part of your home’s DNA. Let’s explore some homes with exceptional signature bathrooms from around the world.
