Creating your own ultimate bathroom sanctuary

Although bathrooms serve a specific function, they don’t need to conform to a utilitarian design. If anything, this space benefits from personalization.

From simple contemporary designs to chic, luxurious fixtures, today’s bathroom trends are about creating a relaxing personal retreat.

Patterns and textures

Bringing in texture and merging different patterns and materials through tiles and natural materials can help bring your bathroom space to life.

Creative use of oversized tiles and mixing patterns – made easier with today’s technology – can result in stunning spaces that can be both exhilarating and serene.

Blend warm, cool colors

Warm shades have made a comeback and can be mixed with cool colors such as blue to create harmony.

You don’t have to rely purely on paint, either; wood textures can also infuse warmth and natural elements into your bathroom.

Merge the indoors, outdoors

Blurring the lines between inside and out can create the ultimate sanctuary. For example, ample windows or greenery can create an instant connection.

Or take it one step further by placing one or more components – such as a tub, shower or sitting area – entirely outdoors.

Install standout fixtures

Freestanding tubs are as eye-catching as they are comfortable and can serve as a great focal point for any bathroom space to give it a lavish and sleek look.

Don’t have the space?

For a different spa-like setup, incorporate two or more showerheads in your shower to provide different water flow experiences. Multiple showerheads can also be a low-cost upgrade for increased relaxation.

Add futuristic technology

Touchless self-cleaning toilets, leak detectors, floor heating systems, interactive LED mirrors and fixtures that can control water flow and temperature are a few of the smart devices available to connect your entire bathroom.

Select the features that are most important to you to create a top-notch luxury experience.
