Just imagine sipping some bubbly, taking in the beauty of serene and natural beauty or staring at the stars, all while soaking in a deliciously warm bath.

One of the 2020 bathroom trends, called Biophilia, encourages us to bring the outdoors in. But, what if we did the reverse and brought the indoors out? Well then, you’d have yourself an outdoor bathroom!

Outdoor bathrooms are wildly popular, and have been gaining plenty of traction in 2020 trends. We’ve collected a few stunning examples for you to show you how you could create your own outdoor bathing area. Take a look!


Island Styled Bathing Area

Designed by IDC Interior Design, this exquisite outdoor bathroom design flaunts a care-free island style attitude, which is no coincidence with it being located in a Caribbean villa. The bathtub featured here is the Victoria and Albert Malborough freestanding bathtub.


Find Your Zen

Have you always wanted to create a Zen garden? Why not create a Zen bathroom instead? Giving you the spacious feel of the outdoors while partially sheltering you from the elements, this beautifully balanced design gives you the best of both types of bathing spaces.

You could use the elegantly oval, thin rimmed Dado London bathtub to recreate your own slice of heaven.


Soaking in a Safari

If your home overlooks local wildlife, then you’d be crazy not to take advantage of it by setting up a Safari styled outdoor bathroom. The above design inspires an atmosphere of laid-back luxury. You can create a similar atmosphere with a classic ball and claw bathtub, such as the Dado Warwick bathtub.
