If you need a respite from your busy life, consider transforming your bathroom design into a personal refuge. There is a Zen saying that goes like this: Silently sitting by the window. Leaves fall and flowers bloom. The seasons come and go.
Could there be a better life? Zen design highlights our relationship with nature and achieving the balance between the two creates the serenity that has made Zen bathrooms so popular.

One productive yet simple concepts to keep in mind is to avoid regularity. One of the principles of Zen design is Shibui, which, simply stated, evokes nature by being simple, irregular, and beautiful. If square, regularly placed tiles have a place in a Zen bathroom, it's only as a counterpoint to a blank wall or a large window. Alternatives to tiles on the walls include stone or decorative texturing. If you choose to texture the walls, don't follow a formula.
Call on your Zen spirit guide to help you create a unique and simple pattern that can never be reproduced. Make swirls or ridges with a brush or drywall knife or, if you have a large, visible wall, flatten it by skim-coating and create a calligraphy design in the fresh mud with a paintbrush.
