Dreaming of a gorgeous bathroom to unwind in? Whether you're looking for Hollywood glamour or country house hotel charm, get inspired by these modern designs
Taking cues from luxury boutique hotels, these spa-like bathrooms showcase gorgeous designs. Whether it is contemporary walk-in shower rooms or traditional roll-top baths, these havens all have one things in common: unmistakable glamour.
From statement freestanding baths to Crittall-style shower screens, and from vintage-style distressed, antiqued mirrors to glamorous brass taps and pretty bathroom wall lights, let these stylish designs inspire you.
For minimalists, monochrome style bathrooms might hit the spot, or for lovers of colour, a beautiful modern wall mural can transform the setting. For bohemian types, encaustic tiles look particularly striking on bathroom walls and floors and add a dash of personality to a space, or they can opt for the fan-shaped fish scale tile, and for urbanites, the Boffi pipe shower is a must-have.
With luxurious materials, bespoke detailing, striking lighting and a generous dose of brass and marble, let these statement bathrooms lead your redesign. Splash out on quality taps and finishes, which even if teamed with the most minimalist of baths, will make a statement.
