It wasn’t that long ago when the bathroom was viewed as a room where you quickly went in and got out. The bathroom wasn’t seen as a place to lounge or dwell but that’s all starting to change. Many home owners are now constructing what we like to call the ‘modern day’ bathroom, a place to loiter and luxuriate. It is now becoming a part of the home where you want to impress your guests, much like the dining room or kitchen. Current trends of marble wall panels, water saving toilets, luxurious shower enclosures and fog-free mirrors are becoming high in demand and some bathrooms are becoming some of the most beautiful rooms in a home. Here are 10 of the most extravagent and expensive bathrooms in the world.
