Sensory sanctuaries, the smallest room can add a touch of luxury to everyday bathing, relaxation and rejuvenation.
Soft earthy tones are being seen more and more in today’s bathrooms, from wall tiles in warm metallic greys to basins in speckled stone. Wood accessories further add natural touches, as do beautiful scented soaps and soft cotton facecloths. Keep it simple, without clutter on surfaces. A pared-back palette will make your space feel luxurious and elegant. Bring interest with subtle pattern by using small hexagonal tiles on a feature wall or heavenly ceramic or marble tiles on the floor.
Mix it up
Double wall-hung vanities with matching wooden floorboards are beautifully offset by polished concrete flooring. The curved lines of this freestanding bath are accentuated by the hanging wall mirrors.
Instead of wall-hung bath taps, if you have room, consider a freestanding mixer. This Jee-O bath mixer, $3850, from Michel Cesar is crafted in black matt hammer-coated stainless steel. It exemplifies minimalist, functional luxury, which adds wow factor. Provide continuity by installing basin and shower taps in the same or similar style.
A carefully considered layout with clean lines and few divisions enhances space in this bathroom, making it open and welcoming.
Bathroom renovations can be costly, so make style choices that you’ll be happy with for many years to come.
Beautiful packaging, sensuous scents, what more could you ask for to ease the stresses out of a busy day?
