In the spirit of highly individual design, the 'Be Yourself' contest, brainchild of industry leaders, challenged visualizers to create the ultimate bathroom. This concept by Deluxe Home Creation Studio was the viewer's favorite and it's not difficult to see why. However, starting with images of grandeur is not such a bad idea. Even for a personal/residential project it is possible to gain inspiration from images such as these and scale them down to fit comfortably within standard spaces, keeping elements such as a simple water feature or simulated rain shower as part of the fundamental ideal.

Don't be afraid to get creative; consider side tables or end tables as options. A Moroccan pouf or cube ottoman with a tray on top also are alternatives to traditional nightstands. Finally, keep in mind your mattress height; you'll want to make sure your table isn't too high or low.
Since attics are at the top of the home, the option for natural light should be priority. While many homes don't have skylights, other options such as dormer windows which are located in the walls of the attic, as opposed to the ceiling, and even solar tubes can be installed to bring light into the master bedroom attic space. Along with natural light, views to the outside should be considered, as humans thrive on seeing daylight and fresh scenery daily. Take full advantage of the height and the views, you are at the top of the world, literally!
A contemporary atmosphere is hidden in the details. For an exhilarating effect,choose an open canopy bed to go with your large windows. This way the light can flow freely and flood every corner of the room without interruption, just like the example above, designed by Cleare Interiors.
