It’s important to understand what makes a luxury bathroom luxurious as you’re going to need this knowledge in order to create one.
A luxury bathroom is a statement feature in your home. Luxury bathrooms are skillfully designed right down to the finest detail and often include exclusive high-end fixtures and fittings from the likes of Laufen and Roca.
A luxury bathroom is arguably how the space makes you feel, and although product can influence this, a luxury bathroom is typically formed as a result of the design and decoration.
Many luxury bathroom designs make the most of your available space due to their bespoke and exclusive elements. When you initially think about a luxury bathroom you automatically presume they can only be created in a large space however this isn’t always the case.
There are many options and design secrets that lend themselves perfectly to creating a luxury bathroom for small spaces, you just need to know what they are.
Most luxury bathrooms will feature both a bath and separate shower however if space doesn’t allow it you will have to make a decision on which key fixture is more important to you and your needs. Whether a bespoke wet room with optional seating or an oval shaped free standing bath there are compact designs available that will fit any sized room and still offer that luxury bathroom appeal.
Another fixture preference in luxury bathroom design is the incorporation of his and hers basins. Often referred to as the ‘secret to a happy marriage’ if having your own basin in a shared suite doesn’t cement luxury we don’t know what does.
Similar to the above however if space or room configurations won’t allow for such a big piece of sanitary ware as an alternative we would recommend a large vanity unit with either a built in basin or sit on counter top basin.
In terms of a WC a wall hung concept with a concealed cistern should always be your first consideration in luxury bathroom design. Tidy and maintenance free with all pipework concealed there is options to upgrade your specification to an auto-wash-and-dry system for the ultimate in luxury toileting.
One thing you can’t get away from when designing a luxury bathroom is the need for tiles. Always fully tiled to the floor and wall this is the decoration secret that will confirm your luxury bathroom design. A popular trend in 2018 was marble effect however for a timeless luxury classic you could always opt for a less invasive beige, both of which offer a clean, clear and concise application in any sized room.
If you’re wanting to add a splash of colour you can always experiment with rich opulent colours for a bold and dramatic tone. That said we would always recommend keeping these to a minimum as to not interrupt the overall design. Choosing a dark navy vanity basin unit to compliment your marbled suite could work an absolute treat. Similarly a dark wooden tone could also help add additional warmth to a beige setting.
It is important that throughout the design and decoration process you are clear about what you want the space to achieve. The finer details such as brassware and accessories, heating and lighting, and how you incorporate them i.e. underfloor heating or spot lights in niches, are the finishing touches that will make your luxury bathroom really come to life.
