Thursday, after signing the papers for the house, we went on a hunt for bathroom furniture. We selected a few showrooms and did a preliminary sweep of those to see what's available -- we want to get an idea of what's available and the associated prices.

We want an extra-deep bathtub, so that you can sit completely submerged in the bath, without anything sticking out. We experienced the comfort of such tubs in Japan, and if we're going to renovate the bathroom anyway, why not get some luxury while we're at it? As we told eachother: we don't need lots of space, we want luxury!
To me, the Villeroy & Boch Nagano tub (probably not a coincidence that it is named after a city in Japan) is the prime candidate.

We want black tiles on the floor, and large white tiles on the walls, accented with small square black tiles. Hard to explain.
At the first shop, we also saw the Mosa LED tiles. They're exactly as it sounds: large square tiles with 9 white LEDs in the middle. I'm wondering whether one can change the white LEDs for something different (say, RGB LEDs) and how they get their power... Add a microcontroller and two wall-coverings that act as touch sensors, and you'd have a programmable accent-lighting. *drool*
