When you’re designing a bathroom, luxury should always be your first priority. It should be a place where you can get away from it all, relax, and relieve all of your stress after a long day. People think that it’s hard to get that luxury feel without spending a load of money but that isn’t always the case. If you focus on one or two details in the bathroom, you can really elevate the entire design and get that luxury look that you’re after, without the price tag. These are some of the best ways to get a great luxury look in your new bathroom.
A Chrome Finish
When you’re choosing the fixtures and fittings for your bathroom, why not try a chrome finish. It gives a great luxurious feel to the bathroom but it’s still quite understated so it’s ideal if you don’t want anything too over the top. Chrome works particularly well with marble but you can pair it with most materials and it will still look great. The other benefit of using chrome is that it’s timeless, so you’re not going to look at the bathroom a few years down the line and decide that you don’t like it because it’s fallen out of fashion. Just make sure to clean it properly, otherwise, it won’t look good. If you are not sure about what you can add to your bathroom in a chromed style, you might wanna start looking for some grab bars and even consider including a bath chair with chromed details. There are both functional and elegant.
The bathtub is the focal point of the bathroom so if you choose something extravagant there, you don’t need to change that much in the rest of the room and you’ll still get that luxury feel. A stone bathtub from somewhere like Lusso Stone is the ideal choice because it’s elegant but not too flashy, which is great if you want a more minimal look. People often make the mistake of thinking that luxury means showy, but that isn’t always the case. If you’re willing to invest a bit more money, you can pair it with a stone basin and vanity unit as well.
Stepping out of the shower or the bath on to cold tiles is hardly luxury, which is why you should consider underfloor heating for the bathroom. It’s a small touch that makes your whole bathroom experience that bit more luxurious and it’s actually a lot easier to install than people think. It’s also cheaper to run than you would imagine so if you haven’t considered it because of the cost, think again.
A Mirrored Wall
If your bathroom is quite small, getting that luxurious feel can be quite hard. If you don’t design it well, the bathroom will feel cramped and you won’t be able to relax properly in there. Unless you want to knock a wall through, there isn’t much you can do about the size of the room. However, you can make it appear bigger if you get creative with mirrors. A mirrored wall will give the impression of a much larger space and the mirrored surface screams luxury. If you’re using a statement bath like a stone one or a freestanding one, positioning it so it is reflected in the mirror wall you can create a great effect.
Storage is another problem that you’ll have in a smaller bathroom and if you don’t have enough of it, the bathroom will quickly become cluttered. If you want to find a good storage solution and get a more elegant, luxurious look at the same time, you should consider adding some fitted storage units in there. By using fitted storage, you make the best use of the space that you have and open it out a little, and it gives you a hotel bathroom feel which is a lot more luxurious.
Feature walls are one of the best ways to do something special in any room of the house, including the bathroom. It also gives you a bespoke element and makes the bathroom a lot more personal to you, which will help you to feel more at home and relaxed when you’re spending time in there. It’s important that you pick the color scheme carefully and go for something understated, otherwise, it will be too overbearing and ruin the relaxing atmosphere. Something like a white and light grey mountain landscape, for example, is great for relaxation. You could even create a feature wall using patterned tiles for a more traditional look, just be sure to have them done professionally if you don’t feel equipped to do it on your own.
These are all great ways that you can add some luxury to your bathroom design with one simple feature.
