When it comes to creatively designing your home, it can be all too easy to neglect the bathroom. It can be tempting to think of it in an exclusively utilitarian sense, after all, everyone’s bathrooms are somewhat similar – they all have the same functional requirements.
Yet there’s so much potential for creative design in the bathroom, from grand themes to quirky variations of everyday features, if you have the imagination there’s no reason this humble room can’t be the most impressive in your home. And why shouldn’t it be? All you have in your bathroom is quiet time alone to reflect, so why not make a beautiful space in which to do so.
With this in mind, here’s a rundown of ten superb bathroom ideas…
The simple grey tiles and white walls create an attractive, but understated look in bathroom number one, but what’s really impressive about the design is the creative use of light and space. The large mirror by the bathtub creates the illusion of more space, while the skylight above the bathtub allows natural light into the room, and a little star gazing in the tub.
This beautiful bright bathroom has a refined, regal air to it thanks to the marble effect ceramic tiles that cover the walls.
The combination of wood and stone create a powerful look, and bring a timeless, natural feeling to the room.
The writings literally on the wall in bathroom number four, thanks to its creative feature wall. This striking, high contrast bathroom defies convention embracing black despite its smaller size. Why not use the bathroom to let your creative side loose?
In this eye-catching salle de bains the walls and floor have been constructed using a mosaic of pebbles, and - in conjunction with the wooden bench upon which the sink rests – the effect is to create a warm and welcoming space reminiscent of the beach.
Get creative with your wallpaper choice and inject some colour into your bathroom.
This rustic yet regal bathroom features a striking standalone copper bathtub that would steal the show were it not for the chandelier hanging above it. There’s a bewildering contrasting yet complementary effect created by the chandelier and bathtub against the stove and exposed brickwork.
The unique stone wash basins resting upon a dark wooden counter create quiet the memorable bathroom.
The penultimate entry to our list has clearly been designed with long relaxing baths in mind. The standalone bathtub becomes the focus of the room, but next to it we find a log fire and an oil painting above it – a bathroom fit for an eighteenth century aristocrat!
The stone and wood that shape this beguiling bathroom create a very welcoming, natural atmosphere in the room – the perfect place to unwind.
We hope this list has given you the inspiration you needed to create your beautiful new bathroom, but if you find yourself in need of more ideas then maybe these bathrooms will inspire your next renovation.
