Make It Feel More Zen

When you shift from thinking about a bathroom as simply a functional space to one that's about relaxing and recharging, your whole perspective on its design changes. Creating a space that feels both calming and beautiful becomes the priority. In this bathroom at the Bahia Vik in Uruguay, walls are covered in bamboo instead of the more expected tile for a bathroom that feels like a tropical retreat. By only using one natural material, the overall effect is calming.
