The world is split — there are bathers, showerers and people who spend most of their waking life, when they’re not at work, submerged.

People talk about ‘getting bored’ (for which we recommend these things to do in the bath) or not wanting to ‘soak in there own dirt’, but as the latter category know — it’s basically the best place on the planet. 

You can read, watch Countryfile, listen to Serial or catch up on correspondence (for which you may need an offensively practical waterproof phone or iPad case but it’s so worth it) and all while benefiting from the relaxing vibes of bath oils, candles and a G&T.

If you’re still reading, odds are you’re one of those people — so you’ll like the #bathporn we’ve rounded up for those hellish days you have plans in the evening or if you’re actually looking for practical interior advice.

We're perfectly content in our dingy bathrooms, with no windows and an obligatory mini cactus, but take one tiny moment to imagine being in one of these...

Not much better than some relaxing nature, hotel-perfect towel rolls and whatever that pot-pourri stuff is. (Let's hope it's bath snacks.)

A whole bath room = the actual dream.

A little more realistic maybe, but no less inspirational — particular shout outs to the book shelves, and freestanding bath, of course.

A freestanding bath WITH a sassy curtain — ideal for having someone chat to you while you're soaking.

We can hardly make sense of this Escher-like eco haven, but we love it.

We're not sure that natural tree contraption would look quite so idyllic over a dingy city bath.

Just the right side of naturally hectic.

Like the schmanciest type of hotel.

We want a room big enough to put that bath in.
