Practical luxury: bathroom design


A neutral colour palette is used with a copper bathtub to create a luxurious atmosphere in this bathroom

Everything about this space says luxe. The limestone floor tiles, the double vanities, the textured feature wall, the Victorian-esque mural and that copper bathtub. With a brief that requested an element of pizzazz, this bathroom design is a far cry from its original state. Cramped, dark and beginning to show signs of leakage, the space has been transformed into a glamorous haven that is as practical as it is luxurious.

Catering for a family of six, the well-considered layout encourages easy movement and provides plenty of space to spread out. A double set of deep drawers takes care of any storage needs, while the problem of mould is eliminated with heated floor tiles and a skylight. Glossy white surfaces and oversized mirrors work in unison to cleverly bounce the small amount of natural light around the room.

The copper bath beautifully softens any harshness and exudes a sense of warmth and opulence, a feeling mirrored by the hanging copper chains of the shower. The chains provide a look of industrial modernity to the space, a concept that juxtaposes brilliantly with the feminine feature wall of the sanitary suite.”
