Soak in the nurturing benefits of nature with bathrooms that welcome greenery in with open arms.

Creating spaces that walk the line between the indoors and the outdoors is a great way to enliven a home. Soak in the nurturing benefits of nature with bathrooms that welcome greenery in with open arms.
If you can afford the space, an outdoor bath is the ultimate luxury; taking a long soak in the tub outdoors feels relaxing and indulgent. While you want to be exposed to the elements, privacy is just as important, so keeping the right balance of enclosure and exposure is crucial. Add walls only where necessary – for 100 per cent privacy or to house plumbing – and consider lush, tropical foliage as alternative means of enclosure.
Sometimes, taking the bathroom outdoors is not an option, but that doesn’t have to stop you from taking the outdoors in. Take a leaf from this bathroom by Space Define where a tropical all-timber bathroom is accented by a burst of greenery beside the bathtub. Here, the plants are purely ornamental, but they make all the difference in creating an outdoor atmosphere.
When you’ve struck property gold and have a house that is surrounded by nothing but greenery, bringing nature into the house is as simple as framing the right view. This Sentosa Cove house by Ong&Ong does just that with an unhindered wall-to-ceiling view out to the trees in the distance. And whenever a little privacy is preferred, sliding doors can be pushed back in place for a fully enclosed bathroom.
