Aside from the bedroom, where else do you spend your alone time? While some prefer the outdoors, there are a few who look forward to the precious minutes they spend in the bathroom. Whether it's getting ready for an important event or relishing a hot bath after a long day—it's safe to say that the T&B is a special spot.

While we often furnish it with the simplest of furnishings, a little upgrade in fixtures and decor won't hurt. If you've always wanted to feel like you're in a spa or a five-star hotel each time you take a bath, you can take inspiration from some of our featured celebrity homes. These homes highlight private spaces that showcase a blend of elegant must-haves, a cozy appeal, and an overall envy-worthy aesthetic. Get started on your dream bathroom with these pegs and picks:

1. Alex Gonzaga

As seen in Alex Gonzaga’s feminine but modern bathroom, a one-piece water closet gives off a simple, clean look. 

Achieve a similar look with American Standard's Natural One-Piece IDS Toilet.

2. Janice de Belen

Janice de Belen’s bathroom oozes with girly appeal with its bright purple wall and chandelier. The perfect foil for a glam bathroom like this is a romantic clawfoot tub. 

Feel like a princess and reward yourself with a Kohler Cleo Tub.

3. Toni Gonzaga

If you want your bath to have a warm and natural feel like Toni Gonzaga’s, use wood-patterned ceramic tiles instead of wooden planks, which aren’t waterproof. 

Visit Mariwasa and look for the Rosewood Brown Digital Ceramic Tile. Don't forget to consult with a professional when it comes to measuring the area where you intend to install the tiles.

4. Bea Alonzo

Bea Alonzo’s bathroom is segregated into vanity, bath, toilet, and shower areas. A slim, vintage-style shower set is ideal for a compact shower stall. 

Invest in a bathroom showcase and opt for a Showerhead Set from Arrow Home and a Papua Wooden Shower Mat from Habitat.

5. Pauleen Luna

For a fresh and trendy bathroom like Pauleen Luna’s, use an above-counter sink instead of the old-fashioned sunken countertop lavatory. 

Look for the Acacia E Above Counter Sink the next time you drop by Dexterton.

6. Kim Chiu

Having your own Jacuzzi plunge tub with massage nozzles is the ultimate luxury, and Kim Chiu’s bathroom is no exception. 

Get the ultimate reward and check out the Jacuzzi Spa Tub.

Price available upon request | Available at Dexterton

7. Jennylyn Mercado

Faux-stone tiles can give a sleek but rustic look to contemporary bathrooms, as seen here in Jennylyn Mercado’s modern loo.

A subtle upgrade can create a huge impact. Trust the Pamesa Ceramica Tile to give your T&B a boost.
