Most New York City bathrooms are cramped, functional spaces containing near-identical fixtures—the requisite sink, toilet, shower (or tub, if you're lucky)—so we really appreciate a home that devotes space and style to its loo.

Who needs a den when you can catch up on the latest news via integrated televisions built into the mirrors of your vanity? This two-bedroom SoHo loft incorporates that high-tech feature in its master bath, plus a steam shower, Zuma tub and radiant heat floors, too.
There’s already plenty to love about this $25,000/month 3,300 square foot NoHo loft rental (13-foot ceilings, exposed brick walls, original columns, two fireplaces), but the en suite master bath with its WetStyle tub, Toto toilet and slate-tile double shower that converts to a glass-enclosed steam room had us at hello.
