What if you could have a bathtub that emulated a starry sky? The Nirvana Bathtub does this with its i-Touch lighting system. This acrylic unit contains 360 LED lights. This unit is also low-water consuming because of the shallow shape. We’re wondering if the lights reflect off the walls for an immersive bathing experience.

The “Vessel” tub from Matt Withington and Miles Hartwell will redefine the term “freestanding bathtub.” This carbon fiber tub imitates the shape of a traditional hammock. As well as adding a “wow factor” to the bathroom, this tub keeps water warmer for a longer period of time due to its design. SplinterWorks offers this tub in different colors. The brackets on the wall support the weight, and two people can use the tub. Don’t forget the freestanding faucet for filling the tub and the floor drain for emptying it.

The Ariel BT-150150 Whirlpool Bathtub turns a home bathroom into a luxury spa and jacuzzi. This corner bathtub unit from Ariel Bath features stylish tempered glass, handheld shower head and ozone sterilization. The 9 whirlpool jets deliver a acupuncture hydro massage while the two headrests allow two people to relax comfortably. The micro computer with LCD control panel works with a remote control, and the unit can hold up to 98 gallons of water.
The Ariel 701 Steam Shower with Whirlpool Bathtub takes bathing to a whole other level as an at-home steam shower and whirlpool bathtub combination unit. This corner steam shower is enclosed with blue tempered glass and includes a handheld shower head, rainfall ceiling shower, computer control panel with timer and 3KW steam generator. The two built-in seats allow for relaxing during a steam session while the LED lighting illuminates the unit. Two people can enjoy the whirlpool bathtub component, which delivers a massage with 12 body jets.
Reclining Steam Shower Bench
This custom-made steam shower has a twist. One of the benches is a tiled space to lie down and enjoy a steam session. The glass door goes all the way to the ceiling so the steam won’t be let out. The glass above the door may or may not open to allow for ventilation after a steam session.
This is a fun and interesting take on a well-known design.

Heat Sensitive Shower
Remember those mood rings that changed color? Believe it or not, this shower brings back memories of those. The shower tiles in this photo change colors with heat. As you can see, the brown tiles change to green and blue at the warmest areas. Why commit to one color when you can have them all?
