Take inspiration from luxury hotels for the perfect bathroom suite
Often what sets one hotel room apart from another is a luxurious bathroom and it is a look that is fairly easy to create in your own home. With a shiny bathroom suite and some clever decoration, you could really make your bathroom stand out.
Bathrooms, like kitchens, are often deal breakers when selling a house, so going for a hotel bathroom look can help you add money to your property.
When it comes to taking inspiration from what hotel designers have achieved, the size of your bathroom is not an issue, as very often designers have small spaces to work with and, nowadays, we are lucky that there are bathroom suites suitable for all rooms of all sizes.
Choosing a bathroom suite
Firstly, keep it white. The days of an avocado bathroom suite are long behind us and, fingers crossed, the trend will never return. Bathroom suites need to have a slight clinical look, after all, it is the room that gets you clean, so keep it white. We can't stress this enough, choose a white bathroom suite!
Add to that shiny chrome accessories and you are on your way to a luxurious look that will never go out of fashion.
There is a bathroom suite to suit all budgets and you don't need to spend a fortune to get the look, however, do consider what your requirements are, as obviously the quality and design detail of a cheaper suite will not be as decadent as its more expensive counterpart.
It's all in the décor
Like a white bathroom suite, to get the hotel look keep the decoration simple. Luxury hotel bathrooms are successful because they don't go overboard on the design and styling, so this is the look you want to mirror in your bathroom.
To get a bathroom that looks like it could have been created by a hotel designer go for floor to ceiling tiling. This will complement your chosen bathroom suite, giving your room clean lines and a contemporary feel.
Storage to hide away all the toiletries and cleaning products is, of course, essential in achieving the look, but occasionally they can take up quite a bit of space. There is the option of choosing some careful fixtures that add to the design element of your bathroom that allow items to be left on show, such as real shelving, but keep the items on show to a minimum.
To finish off your brand new luxurious bathroom, and keeping in line with your white bathroom suite, invest in some good quality white fluffy towels. If you really do want to inject a bit of colour with towels, then keep it neutral with creams, browns and greys.
