Luxury bathrooms are all about creating a space where you can relax at the end of a stressful day, as well as get ready with ease on busy weekday mornings.

Luxury Bathroom Ideas

Luxury Materials

Luxurious materials are essential. It’s definitely worth investing in materials such as stone and solid wood to add a smart, sophisticated look. Choose solid surfaces such as Versital for the look of marble and stone, but that are 100% waterproof and require no treating.

Bathroom Furniture

Storage is an important element of bathroom design for functionality. Bathroom furniture in wood or white gloss finishes have a timeless appeal. Bespoke solutions make the best use of available space.

Bathroom Fittings

For the ideal showering solution opt for a shower system that includes a large fixed shower head, with a refreshing rainfall style effect, as well as a shower handset for easier rinsing and cleaning. Concealed thermostatic valves create a neat, streamlined finish.

Walk in showers and wetroom glass panels are ideal for creating a sleek, streamlined bathroom. For a neat, minimal finish install a shower tray in the same finish as the floor.

Sanitaryware is a key element in luxury bathrooms. Wall-hung toilets with concealed cisterns maximise floor space and allow for easier cleaning. For a ‘his and hers’ look install two basins side-by-side.

Lighting and Technology

Lighting makes a massive difference. Dimmer switches allow you to alter the ambiance of the bathroom. Illuminated mirrored cabinets are ideal applying make-up or shaving.

Incorporating technology into the bathroom is becoming more popular. Waterproof TV’s, mirrors with demist pads, shaver sockets, LED lighting, and even Bluetooth and concealed speakers.

Expert Opinions

Are luxury bathrooms really worth the effort? These two experts to share their thoughts.

The Interior Designer

A couple of years ago people were happy with a standard clean-lined bathroom with a nice feature wall. Now the request for more luxurious fittings and fixtures, as well as luxury materials has never been greater. More people realise the bathroom isn’t just a functional room, it’s a space to unwind and ease the tensions of the day.

The Estate Agent

Bathrooms definitely help sell houses. A bathroom with a spa or hotel feel gives homes the wow-factor and help them stand out from the crowd.

Buyers are put off by old bathrooms as they don’t want the hassle, fuss and expense of having to redo a bathroom once they move in. A high end bathroom leads viewers to believe that the rest of the house will be to the same standard too. Hilary Fielding, Hilary’s Estate Agents.
