1.There is something soothing and elegant about repetition and the continuing contrast between light and shadow. The wood serves as a defining element of this space in this warm bathroom.

Installing moody lighting in the shower area can impart a sense of freshness and brightness to the entire room, especially if it lacks windows. The interplay of light and shadow adds depth and creates a soothing ambience within the space.

The gunmetal brassware pairs well with large format tiles and adds an elegant touch.


2.Colored marble or terrazzo can be a beautiful and luxurious choice for bathroom appliances such as countertops, flooring, and shower walls. Marble is a natural stone that is available in a wide variety of colours. white marble is a timeless piece that will serve you for a really long time, however the use of coloured marble can add colour and character to a bathroom space, and can create a fun, unique and personalised look.

When selecting colored marble for your bathroom appliances, it is important to consider the overall design aesthetic of your space. If you are going for a traditional, classic look, white or beige marble may be the best choice. If you want a more dramatic look, black or green marble can create a bold statement or a focal point of your bathroom. Pastel pink or grey marble can create a softer, more feminine look.

3.Introducing round, organic shapes as opposed to hard corners. Round edges and arches can be a great design feature in a bathroom as they can soften the look of the space and create a more organic, flowing feel. Here are some ways that you can incorporate round edges and arches into your bathroom design:

  • Arched mirrors as shown on the image to the right. Instead of a rectangular mirror, consider an arched mirror to create a more elegant and unique look.
  • Rather than sharp corners on your bathroom vanity, consider a countertop with rounded corners. This will create a more welcoming and approachable feel.
  • To create a more open and spacious feel in your bathroom consider an arched shower screen.
  • A rounded bathtub can add a touch of luxury and comfort to your bathroom and help create a more flowing feel in the space.
  •  If your bathroom has a doorway, consider an arched doorway for a more elegant and sophisticated look.

4.Fluted finishes can add an Art Deco feel to a space due to their association with the style. Art Deco is a design movement that was popular in the 1920s and 1930s and is characterised by bold geometric shapes, intricate patterns, and luxurious materials. The fluted texture adds depth and interest to the glass while also creating a play of light and shadow. It can be used in doors, lighting fixtures, glass shower screens, vanity units, basins and baths.

Fluted glass can be clear or tinted and can be combined with other materials, such as metal or wood, for a more contemporary look. They are typically made of glass and can be transparent or frosted for added privacy.
