1. Outside Interest
Lower your window and take in the scene. No view to speak of? An urn on a plinth, a feature pot or a fountain against a boundary wall abundant with greenery will do the trick.
2. Knock on wood
Just quietly, we’re loving rustic wood vanities. They introduce undeniable wow factor and immeasurable character. So have a go at fashioning a shelf-like vanity using a natural-edge timber slab. Include a rail for towels.
3. Lets Get Toasty
Can a heated towel really evoke comfort and luxury? Embraced in its warmth after stepping out of the shower during a cold snap and you’ll find the answer is an emphatic yes! Hardwired or plug-in, a heated rail will also heat your bathroom and – not to be sniffed at – dry your smalls.
4. Niche Chic
Allow for built-in niches. They can be practical for storage or purely decorative. Your call. Paint the back wall of each alcove in the room’s accent colour and cohesion will reign!
5. Go with the Grain
Bring in natural elements, for they are good for the soul and your bathroom! The proof is in this serene bathing space with its warm timber surround bathtub and the chunky wall-hung linear vanity shelf which cleverly incorporates the toilet suite. PS, why go bare (talking walls here) when you can hang arresting art, especially above your bath!
6. Mirror Mirror
Decorate with what you love and don’t worry about sticking to any particular style. If you like it, it will work. The evidence is here before you – an unusual antique mirror lends its own considerable charm to a contemporary grey and marble bathroom with its curvaceous bath!
7. Pattern play
Highly patterned tiles are enjoying a renaissance after what feels like decades of plain white bathrooms. No need to go crazy, pick your surface, feature wall or floor!
8. Nature Sanctuary
Relax and enjoy spectacular views, be they bush or garden, with wraparound windows. Specify standard window sizes to keep costs down. Splurge your savings on a stunning stone or quartz bench top.
9. Soothe the soul
Lead the way with a natural walkway to your sumptuous walk-in shower. A rain-style showerhead coupled with skylight, will instantly wash away the day’s blues. Loving the suspended shelving and wall mounted greenery.
