If you love spending time in the bathroom, and you love the outdoors — and you're maybe a little bit of an exhibitionist — then you'll really love these 13 bathrooms with an outdoor component. Some are more exposed than others, so you get a choice of how much you'd like to show off — but all are very beautiful, like a tiny tropical retreat within your own home.
Above: This dreamy bathroom from House Beautiful has both indoor and outdoor components, giving you a choice of exactly where you'd like to shower. The showers, though they're exactly the same size, take on a different character thanks to different materials.
