Usually when a house is designed, the lowly water closet is tucked away out of sight. Builders will focus so much on the bedrooms and the entertaining spaces, that often the bathrooms end up being dark, cramped, and with nothing but a tiny window for a view. But some architects have challenged this idea by turning the bathroom into the most exciting room in the house.

Rather than treating these essential home commodities like something that needs to be hidden, these geniuses are turning the bathroom into a place you’ll never want to leave.
