Bathrooms of the future

Sometimes it feels like we're living in the future. We have smartphones and smart cars and nail polish that stays on for weeks without chipping. It's practically Star Trek around here! To prove our point, we've compiled 15 showers so modern they look sci-fi and so futuristic they look like they fell out of a Star Trek set.

Our first thought when we saw this hip shower was, "How long, exactly, does it take to clean that much glass?"

We can't decide what our favorite part of this shower is. Is it the black tile? Is it the shower head? Is it the beautiful, beautiful white tub? You're right. It's the tub.

This shower belongs in Malibu and Malibu only so it can always stand in contrast to the bright blue ocean and bright blue turquoise pool. In fact, we're renaming this the Malibu shower and we're not taking second opinions.

OK, admit it. When you saw this picture you were impressed with the ceiling-mounted shower head and fantasized for a minute about throwing out your current shower and installing this one just to see how it works.

We honestly believe this shower is more work of art than anything else and think it would feel right at home in a modern art museum next to, say, a Pollock or a Warhol.


Minimalist to the max

A shower so simple we almost wonder if it's actually a shower or simply a carefully placed slab of stainless steel on a wall.

We kind of hope this ultrasleek shower comes with an owner's manual, because we're a little bit overwhelmed just looking at it.

Round, basic and suspended from the wall like it's not a big deal. Yeah, rain shower, you've impressed us, stop showing off.
