This is close to what I have in mind for the Japanese-style bath and shower in the hallway bathroom, where you can step from the shower right into the tub. The tub is encased in a deck, but I'd sink it down lower than that. Using a short curtain instead of a glass door, as shown here, might be a good alternative (so the diverter doesn't have to be far from the showerhead).
We like everything here, except the tub would look better either sunken or surrounded (enclosed) in tile. Like the long indented shelf.
Like the pocket door with opaque windows. Like the floor tile.
We like this type of sink also, except that it doesn't leave any countertop space to put things. (In this example, at least.)
Like the style of light fixtures. Like most of the elements here ... nice overall contemporary look.
Like windows up high, for light and ventilation. Nice colors also.
Not sure if we would go for something like this but it IS beautiful. Love the vivid shades of blue and very effective use of the clear bowl.
Interesting style of sink; we have seen these in clear but this translucent one is more unique and appealing. Easy to clean too, perhaps.
Separate Bath tub and shower together in the same enclosure, with glass doors. Recessed lights. Nice vanities. Light blue walls and gray tiles.
Nice open feeling (but I don't like those chairs ...) I wonder if we could change out our stairs to something like that.
Akiko likes the concept of a "wall of windows." To me, this looks almost a little "industrial."
Love the light from above and the view looking up! We don't have quite as nice a tree like that to take advantage of, though. Wonder how they keep those ceiling windows clean ...
Windows, windows, windows, wow! The slanted ceiling is visually interesting, as is the light fixture. They're lucky to have that scenery right outside, providing all that color. What a great room.
Like the high windows, bringing in more light. Big open feeling.
Big open room, light and airy, with views and access to outdoor areas.
Nice methods of bringing in natural light from above and connecting to the outdoor area.
Like the materials and spaciousness.
This is gorgeous. Too bad we can't see the rest of the kitchen behind this. But this kind of thing is what we're going for -- one big open space and high ceilings, with views to the outdoor area. Also nice light colors and our LVP floor would probably be a nice light shade like this also.
Nice colors and we like partial windows in some of the cabinets.
Big space with lots of windows, nice colors, and we like how they connected the room to the adjacent sunroom -- kind of what we're hoping to be able to do.
Nice open feel and contemporary look, with big windows, views of outdoors, and also interesting concept of the table for dining as an extension off of the working counter. Light, white colors. Jeff likes this kind of flooring (for kitchen and dining area) better than LVP, but not sure if Akiko will agree.
Open and spacious, lots of windows. Akiko doesn't care so much for the crazy shapes of the ceiling light and counter, so we wouldn't go for something like that. But I give them props for coming up with something bold, unique, and creative anyway. It's interesting, visually, to me at least.
Large open room with views out the windows.
Big spacious room, with good views of the outdoor areas through big windows. Light and airy, light colors, sleek, contemporary look. Nice long island, nice-looking stone material. Akiko likes that the ovens are up higher away from the floor (good working level). Lots of natural light.
Another example of Japanese-style bath -- deep soaking tub and shower area.
