Creating a bathroom with a fireplace can be a decadent retreat that is cozy and soothing — the ultimate relaxing refuge! Although the bathroom may not be the first room in your home that you would think of installing a fireplace in, it could be the most heavenly experience and really add to your home’s overall design aesthetic. You could create the perfect spa oasis, right in the comfort of your own home. We have already given you some other fabulous design ideas for the implementation of a fireplace in your home, with Spectacular and cozy bedroom fireplaces and Clean and modern showcase fireplace designs, now we want to help you bring the fireplace into your bathroom, so lets get started!
The ultimate bathroom experience is having a fireplace near your tub in the bathroom. Nothing says luxury more than sitting in a bubble bath, glass of wine in hand while a fireplace burns. The warm fire, the crackling of burning wood, and the soft glow are perfect to create a relaxing mood. A fireplace in the bathroom is one of those dream house details that seems out of reach of the average home-dweller, but it is always fun to dream. If you don’t have one already installed and you cannot afford to put one in, think outside the box by using lots of candles and incense; create the mood without the fireplace. You can have a woven basket in your bathroom with some firewood to create a warm look. There are also less expensive alternatives such as electric or bioethanol fireplaces such as EcoSmart Fire. You could have one that hangs right on your wall or sits on your floor, limitless possibilities if you dare to dream! Have a look at the collection of inspiring bathroom fireplace ideas and let us know which one is your favorite!
Everything in this bathroom has grand proportions — even the extra-large fireplace with a huge mantel. The fireplace sits in front of a two-person tub, while walls of vanities peak out from behind. This bathroom has just about everything you’d need for a spa-style afternoon. Tip: Go above and beyond by adding a remote control to the fireplace so you can turn it on and off while in the tub.
Cool and contemporary. A sleek stainless steel fireplace at tub level allows you to enjoy the view without craning your neck during a long soak. Tip: Make sure to allow for plenty of room to walk between the tub and the fireplace. Many fireplaces become very hot.
Clean and classic. The simple lines say classic, and the crisp color says clean. The traditional fireplace uses real wood, the smell helps to create an extra-cozy vibe and the firewood stacked in the wall is right on trend!
Inside-outside connection. Bring the outside right indoors with a desert fire of your very own. This is earth, wind and fire working in complete unison. Tip: When purchasing a gas fireplace, look for the option to have glass or stones set inside the fireplace for an accent — stone would look beautiful here.
Create old-world charm. The stacked stone and exposed wood ceiling transport this bathroom to another time and place. A rustic chandelier and simple tub complete the old-world feel. Tip: The fireplace ledge here is also a functional place for a glass of wine, candles or bathing supplies.
In true Victorian fashion, lavish details unfold all throughout this master bathroom, including on the floor-to-ceiling carved fireplace surround, which marries perfectly with the adjacent freestanding undermount tub. Tip: Place furniture around the fireplace for a posh pre- or postbath lounge area. A good book and a fluffy robe would turn this spot into paradise.
Timeless traditional. Symmetrically separating his-and-her vanities, this fireplace stands front and center. Traditional white painted wood allows the design to stay timeless for years to come. Tip: For total design cohesion, make the mantel the same material as the countertops.
Last but not least, this incredible bathroom gives you an example of how to create a romantic bathroom setting with candles instead of a fireplace. It creates the same kind of ambiance, and a lot of relaxation…and the smell is always wonderful!
