Using marble in a bathroom may seem an obvious choice, but to ring the changes try wall tiles in unusual shapes. Here, geometric marble tiles add a contemporary touch and provide plenty of visual interest even for the most pared-back scheme. White marble has a timeless appeal and luxurious purity so it’s perfect for modern or country bathrooms.
The natural veining of marble makes for a stunning backdrop to a walk-in shower. Go for a large-scale tile for the best effect and choose varying colours to create a beautiful patchwork. Using the same tiles from floor to ceiling makes the shower look almost seamless. Here, a small step has been added to accommodate practical drainage, but in fact it only adds to the luxurious feel.
Introduce shelving where ever you can in a bathroom. The twin washstands shown here incorporate a lower glass shelf for towel storage, while floating wall shelves between basin and mantel mirror provide handy perches for toiletries. A lovely scheme made gorgeous.
Start from the ground up if you want to achieve authentic urban hotel style. Hotels need to invest in durability for the sheer volume of wear and tear their fixtures and fittings will be put through. Apply the same principle to your choice of bathroom flooring and go for sturdy ceramic tiles, then apply the graphic principle by choosing a cool colour palette and sharp repeat pattern. Infinitely cool.
