There's nothing quite as refreshing as a good shower, whether you're after an early morning wakeup, a midday rejuvenation, or a hot blast to relax the muscles after a long tiring day; standing under that strong stream of droplets just takes some beating. So with that in mind, don't our beloved shower rooms deserve an extra special piece of our attention? Of course they do. Forget about the standard meager sized shower heads that dribble out an apologetic and spluttering jet, and the bog-standard off-the-rack cubicles that imprison you in their boring surrounds. We are talking about the world of wonderful waterfall shower heads that drench us in a soothing downpour, open plan settings that are inspired by nature, and just plain gorgeous shower room designs.

What's characteristic of feminine coffee tables is that they very often double as ottomans, which is a smart idea. Choose a cute upholstered ottoman and coffee table in one in some girlish color like pink, blush, lavender or just white, it will create an inviting ambience.
