Want to escape the stress of your day? Look no farther than your master bathroom, where rain showers, heated floors and bubbling air tubs can take you far from your worries. Here’s a look at the many ways to bring tranquility to your bathroom:

Spa-like showers—with multiple showerheads, rain showers and steam

Bubbling bathtubs—from whirlpools with strong jets to airtubs with colored lights

Rich stone—on the floors and walls. Consider limestone or marble.

Cabinetry with furniture styling—to emulate a hotel or luxury resort

Colorful glass—in tiles, countertops or sinks. Try blues and greens to add a tranquil water setting

Elegant lighting—try a chandelier over the bathtub or decorative sconces above the sink
