The bathroom is one of the most used areas at home. Aside from keeping it spotless, you also need to think about its design and decor. While proper storage and function are important factors, you also need to work on the bathroom's layout and how you can keep it organized.

Since it's also a sanctuary where we can relax after a long day, it should also have a calming and refreshing atmosphere. If you are considering an outdoor-inspired design, here are five private spaces that highlight a touch of nature that may just inspire you.

Found in a Batangas home, this bathroom brings the outdoors indoors by allowing natural light in and by adding an indoor garden. The openness of the house allows the owners to be one with nature as it maximizes natural light and air.

Many homeowners prefer a nature-inspired style as it makes them feel relaxed and far away from the troubles of city living. In this 31sqm unit in Manila, earth colors, flora and fauna patterns, and space-saving solutions complete the space. The same look is translated in the bathroom as interior designer Ben Francis Nasayao kept the same tiles and fixtures. It's kept spacious with just the addition of faux plants and a wooden hamper.

The owners of this Antipolo home chose to maximize the lush landscape that surround their property. A breathtaking view of the outdoors can be seen all throughout the house as natural light streams in. To fully embrace nature, the main bathroom is open to the outside—giving users a view of the small river that flows into the nearby falls. Stone was chosen for the flooring as it is easier to maintain.

This bathroom will make you feel like you're in a cozy cottage. The clubfoot bathtub from MC Home Depot sits perfectly by the window so the owners can enjoy a relaxing bath while admiring the view of the outdoors and soaking up some sun. The huge windows help save electricity while letting natural light into the space.

To be able to keep up with a theme, going for simple updates can do the trick. In this bathroom found in a weekend home, the owners opted for a Tropics-themed wallpaper to liven up the space. To make it even more special, a rough slab of wood was used as the counter. In order to highlight these two elements, minimalist fixtures were chosen and only a couple of decor pieces were added.
