shower room with twin basins and large format tiles
Use the same large format tiles on your bathroom walls and floor for a clean
and seamless look. Add a sleek handle-free vanity unit and wall-mounted taps
over twin basins for a streamlined, clutter-free shower room. Recessed shelving
in the walk-in shower provides handy hidden storage.
Large en suite with rainwater shower
with natural wood. In this en suite shower room, oak floorboards and an
oak-topped freestanding vanity stop the white scheme looking clinical. Grey
grout adds interest to the white tiling, too. In an attic bathroom, place a
rainwater shower head as high up as you can, even if it means it’s at the top
of the ceiling.
Grey bathroom with large freestanding bathtub
space-saving wall niche helps maintain the streamlined appearance of this
bathroom. Wall-mounted taps also help to keep the look uncluttered by mundane
pieces. Simple sophistication is the key, with beautiful tiling and a large tub
just made for a good soak.
Striking monochrome bathroom with glossy black
This is a
well-thought-out scheme that is designed to wow. But it’s not as complicated as
it looks. Turning black and white checked tiles on their side to create a
diamond-style pattern is a simple trick to add impact and interest. Meanwhile a
fabulous tub and a hit of red have eye-catching properties all of their own.
Monochrome bathroom with hexagonal black tiles
If you think
your bathroom isn’t the place to make a statement, think again. Hexagonal black
tiles create a really striking backdrop to the white fittings in this
monochrome scheme. A gold mirror adds a beautifully luxe finishing touch.
Grey bathroom with vase of budding branches
take much to jazz up a neutral bathroom. A vase full of budding branches ties
in with the colour scheme here, creating interest without adding a colour hit to
the space. A large vanity unit with lots of drawers keeps the marble worktop
free from all but the essential and decorative.
Ultra compact wet room with wooden panelling
can be installed in the most tiny of spaces, as this ultra compact wet room
shows. With a space-saving sink and no shower enclosure, the room has
everything you need without feeling cramped. If you have a dog who likes muddy
walks, this kind of arrangement works wonders in a boot room, too.
Modern white bathroom with blue ‘relax’ sign on
Not got the
budget to upgrade your bathroom? Then jazz things up with cute accessories,
potted plants and colourful towels. We love the relax sign and pink flamingo.
White glossy bathroom with orange splashback
to your bathroom with a vibrant glass splashback, such as the orange one here.
Rather than tiles, it provides a seamless surface that’s easy to clean (no
grout lines – yay!) A recessed shelf provides a handy ledge for cosmetics (or
bath toys) plus a cool frame for a further burst of orange.
Neutral bathroom with double basin and floating
vanity units may not actually be ‘floating’, but they certainly look like they
are! With the seamless basin counter top and the tiles at the back, this bathroom
has heaps of style. And it’s precisely those two things that trick the eye into
thinking the units are floating free, rather than fixed to the wall.
Modern barn bathroom with clever separating wall
Got a large
bathroom? Create the feel of two rooms in one with a clever separating wall.
This is a great way to keep the loo out of sight when you’re having a good long
soak. It also creates an interesting layout, rather than having everything
along the outer walls. Here, the separating wall falls intentionally short of
the ceiling, so the space doesn’t feel enclosed.
Small bathroom with space-saving vanity unit
fittings are a great way to maximise space in a compact bathroom. Because you
can see the floor beneath them, the room will automatically feel bigger.
Wall-hung fittings also offer clean lines and have a sleek appearance. Another
neat trick is using a ladder rail for hanging towels – they take up virtually
no space and look pretty cool, too.
Neutral bathroom with large-format travertine tiles
large-format tiles to give your bathroom walls an almost seamless look with far
fewer grout lines than smaller tiles. Using the same design on walls and floors
can make a space seem bigger because of the lack of visual interruptions. Small
brick tiles create a neat border below the wall paint on the right.
Compact grey bathroom with glittering green mosaic
got a small bathroom, don’t shy away from bold tiling. This scheme is a great
example of how a feature wall can work wonders in a compact space. Large-format
grey tiles create a great backdrop to the tiny glittering mosaic tiles, which
make the shower area a real focal point.
Shower room with geometric tiles
with your bathroom decor. Here, Art Deco-inspired tiles create a 3D effect. The
same tiles have been used in the shower and on the walls, creating a seamless
effect. A wall-hung loo makes the most of the compact space.
Neutral bathroom with kitchen-style storage cupboards
space is key to a tidy bathroom and these kitchen-style storage cupboards will
hide all unsightly clutter. They also provide a handy ledge for displaying the
things you want on show. Above, a cool feature has been made out of the
homemade industrial-style shelving, which uses plumber’s piping to support it.
Sleek modern bathroom with marble tiling
textural note to a bathroom scheme with Carrara marble tiles arranged in a
herringbone pattern. The same tiles have been used on the bath surround as on
the walls, creating a seamless look. Shower screens may be a necessity but,
with its barely there looks, this one poses no threat to the main decorative
Modern grey cloakroom with conical basin
narrow room visual impact with clever wall coverings. Spanish encaustic tiles
in a cream colour lighten the space, making it seem bigger, while the dark grey
wall draws the eye to the end of the room. The conical basin is a real focal
point and its shape works well in a slim space, too.
White bathroom with flamingo wallpaper
Add a small
flash of pattern to a plain bathroom. This cute blue flamingo wallpaper doesn’t
take up much space and is almost like a large artwork on an otherwise white
tiled wall. Wallpapers with vinyl coatings are durable enough to withstand the
humid conditions of bathrooms so there’s no need to shy away from them if you
Monochrome cloakroom with statement wallpaper
cloakroom or understairs loo from ordinary to fabulous with an impactful
monochrome wallpaper like this one. Simple white fittings are all that’s needed
to make this scheme a success, though a jazzy mirror won’t go amiss. The sink
has been carefully positioned so that it doesn’t cut through the design in an
