4 essential design features for any bathroom

Designer bathrooms might look fabulous in the showroom, but starting to plan your own isn’t always a simple task. There are a lot of elements to consider, from the colour on your walls to the metal on your finishes! To make it easier, it’s always best to break your plan down into smaller steps. Start with looking at these four main design features and some tips on choosing yours.

1. A statement sink

If you plan it well, your sink can become the centrepiece of your entire bathroom. Sculpted freestanding vessel sinks are perfect for modern bathrooms, whilst rooms with a more traditional or quirky aesthetics will suit square-edged sinks with vintage taps. Remember, too, that it’s not just about your sink but also what you put on it. A well-chosen toothbrush holder and soap dish are just two small touches that can elevate your space from a charming washroom to a truly stunning designer bathroom.

2. Shower, bath, or wetroom

One main design feature of every bathroom is the shower, bath, or wetroom. Of course it’s practical to have somewhere to wash, but you can also use yours to create a clear style in your room and as a starting point to inspire the rest of your space. A freestanding bath is a popular choice in designer spaces, as are floor-to-ceiling glass-walled showers and open wetrooms. If you’d like a more unique space, consider playing around with the materials you use. A shower encased in dark wood is something unexpected that can create a cosy, contemporary look, for example.

3. Designer bathroom tiles

Even with simple features and appliances, the right tiles can lift a space and fill it with character! Whether you opt for monochrome tiles to create a sleek, contemporary look, a bold and bright colour, or a vintage pattern, a carefully chosen tile will liven up your bathroom. The placement of your tiles can have a large impact, too. For example, you can create zones by placing your tiles only in certain areas, like by your bath or behind your sink. Or, tie different features together by adding continuous tiling around the bottom half of your room.

4. Easy access storage

Storage is essential in every bathroom, and it needs to be easily accessible. Open shelves are ideal for neat organisation, like folded towels and designer bathroom supplies, whilst a closed cupboard is better for hiding away any mess. If you have younger children, you’ll also need some storage that’s out of their reach. Consider a locked cupboard for medicines and cleaning supplies to keep your little ones safe.

These are just a few of the design elements that you’ll have to consider when creating your designer bathroom. Feel free to look through our customer bathroom gallery or head by our showroom on Manchester Road if you’d like more inspiration. Our team will be more than happy to help you!
