9 Ways To Personalize Your Bath

Self-care never looked so good

The bathroom, the most personal room in your home, should reflect your personality while providing all the function and beauty you can put into it. Here are some new products to help.

1. The Salute Artist Editions’ round vessel sink takes its cues from a champagne coup glass. The interplay of refracting light, cut glass and water casts beautiful shadows and creates a unique glow. Shown in Translucent Dusk and also available in six other colors. $655. Kohler.com.

2. The Facet Bathtub, new from Stone Forest, is carved from single blocks of Antique Gray Limestone (shown, also called bluestone) and Noce Basalt. The tubs complement the company’s Elemental Facet collection of vanities, vessels, storage units and accessories, but they stand alone as functional sculpture. $28,000.

3. The Raine Sconce from Arteriors was inspired by vintage Murano glass lighting from the 1960s and 1970s. The cascading silhouette is embellished with half-round layers of blue smoke luster seedy glass in staggered sizes. The glass pieces fold over a tiered iron frame finished in antiqued brass. The waterfall effect mimics the flow of the shower or bath. $1,170 at ArteriorsHome.com.

4. Made Goods expands its faux raffia Conrad furniture collection with freestanding and floating bathroom vanities. With proportions that are both modern and refined, the vanities lend quiet grandeur to the bathroom. Features include soft-close drawers, cutouts to accommodate plumbing and deep drawers to store toiletries, tissue and other bathroom essentials. Vanity, countertop and hardware available in various finishes. British Home Emporium in Madison, Ashton Whyte in Pennington, Gypsy Lane Home in Stone Harbor and Two Sycamore/Alexis Hughes & Co. in Ho-Ho-Kus. MadeGoods.com.

5. PIPE, designed by Marcel Wanders for Boffi and Fantini’s Aboutwater collection, brings the design aesthetic of industrial pipes softened with handles that resemble red flowers into the home. The handles, painted with red epoxy powders, bring a touch of vitality to functionality. Shown is the built-in bathtub mixer. For prices, ANEW Kitchen & Bath Design in North Plainfield and Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery locations.

6. The stylish Magda bathtub from the Cosmopolitan Collection by MTI is made of a high-quality mineral composite of ground natural elements and binding agents and finished with a chemically bonded coating.

7. Smart shower and steam products from ThermaSol transform a shower into a retreat that delivers therapeutic benefits and allows you to control water temperature, steam, color, sound and more, all from a touch- or voice-controlled tablet. Steam systems range from $1,000 to $12,000, not including generators. Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery locations.

8. The new Greenfield™ Bath Collection from Moen reflects the characteristics of the location that inspired its name — Greenfield Village, Michigan, home to numerous notable American inventors (including Henry Ford, the Wright brothers and Thomas Edison).
