HOW TO: CREATE A LUXURIOUS BATHROOM
There’s nothing more luxurious than having a long soak in the bath at the end of a hard day. The ritual of running hot water, lighting scented candles and using your favourite beauty essentials soothes the soul and leaves you feeling at ease. However, the mood can be ruined by a characterless space.
Whether your bathroom is small and sweet or hotel chic we show you how to relax in style. Read on to discover how to give your bathroom that luxury finish.
If you’re looking for a quick fix, beautiful accessories are your answer. A statement mirror can add instant glamour to your bathroom suite. We love the starburst styles from Koket and Christopher Guy.
Artwork is one of the easiest ways to add personality to a room. Jessica Zoob’s romantic, impressionist prints in hues of green, pink and blue will inject soft, calming colours into the room.
If you prefer something more bespoke, British brand Quintessa will create unique artwork especially for you. Send your colour and material samples over to their skilled artists and receive a piece of artwork that perfectly fits into your interior scheme.
A strategically placed side table in a metallic finish creates a luxury focal point that can be used to display fresh flowers, magazines and books.
A long soak wouldn’t be the same without an abundance of scented candles. Expert perfumers from the Grasse region of France use their exceptional skills to create the Boabab collection of candles and diffusers. We can’t get enough of the strong sandalwood tones and exotic notes from the Electrum range.
As a nod to the golden age of glamour, place a folding screen in your bathroom. Get changed in style with these beautiful designs from Munna and Koket. A screen can be used to break up and zone a space as well as providing a decorative focal point in a corner of the room.
We often overlook lighting when planning our bathroom schemes, however, it is one of the most important factors when setting the mood. Forgo fluorescent lighting for spa-like indulgence and transform your bathroom into a tranquil retreat. Place wall lights on either side of your mirror to soften the light and create ambience. You can also use pendant lights for a contemporary take on this look. See Delightfull’s range of expertly crafted designs.
If you are blessed with a spacious room then create a focal point using a striking chandelier above your bath. A statement chandelier can bring a more traditional scheme into the 21st century. Shop our selection of luxury chandeliers.
If you’re looking to update a permanent fixture then a free-standing bathroom cabinet can dramatically change your space. To create a real sense of luxury, choose a highly decorative design that showcases expert craftsmanship. The Crochet Washbasin by Boco do Lobo was inspired by a technique made popular in Europe during 19th century. Over the top and decadent, this gold and marble design is fit for a palace.
The ultimate luxury finish – Marble
Rich in heritage and timeless in design, marble is still a prominent trend within interiors today. We love the wide range of colours and details found in this natural material.
