If you are lucky enough to be able to design a bathroom from scratch then you can include a major design feature from the outset, but if you’re just looking to revamp one area, we’ve got some great inspiration for smaller projects too!
Envy inducing vanity areas
If your sink is dated, or even damaged, and needs a refresh why not take the opportunity to create a gorgeous vanity area. You can opt for something in keeping with the rest of your suite or choose a more sumptuous piece like the Victoria Console Basin, also available as a double if you have space, which will certainly make the bathroom easier to share.
And, if you are changing the basin, then why not update what sits below it as well?
Ideal for creating the illusion of more space and very on trend right now, washstands give your room a style boost and can be made more practical with the addition of optional shelves and towel rails. Our perfect pick is this Abingdon washstand and Wynwood 800mm basin combination (shown above and also available in a standard 600mm basin size).
If you need more storage, then opting for a freestanding vanity unit can give you a lot more space to hide bathroom clutter and store essential toiletries. Our Caversham Freestanding Vanity Units are available to suit a number of basins and come in 4 on trend finishes; there also a host of handle options to choose from to create a truly bespoke piece.
Think mirrors are just for vanity areas? Think again; a large mirror not only looks amazing it also offers a full length view before you face the world and has the advantage of reflecting a lot of light back into the room making it a much brighter space and making it look bigger.
Tile it out
Tiles do not have to be flat and white; you can find a huge amount of choice online including stunning fish scale options that tie in perfectly with our Plunge Pool trend, soft pastels or more punchy shades like these gorgeously bold blue ones:
Wallpaper in the bathroom has been making a big comeback both as large-scale patterns or to create a mural for a statement wall - and with gorgeous options like ‘Tulipa Stella’ in Fuchsia (below) and the Christian Lacroix ‘Bagatelle Reglisse’, both from Designer’s Guild, it’s easy to see why these create the perfect backdrop to a statement bath.
Another fresh trend is creating an ombre effect with paint in one area. We’d recommend choosing a clear wall space to get the maximum impact.
Baths outside the bathroom
It’s not just a trend for boutique hotels, you can use it to create a luxe effect, and it can actually be a practical way to include an indulgent slipper bath if your en-suite is on the smaller side.
