If you dream of a bathroom that's indulgent and relaxing, a space where you can unwind after a long day, find inspiration with our pick of beautiful luxury bathrooms.
Whether you're designing a bathroom that's traditional, contemporary (or anything in between), what's important is prioritising quality sanitaryware; stylish fixtures and fittings and opting for materials and designs that stand the test of time.
Regardless of your bathroom renovation budget, there are always options for incorporating luxurious features into your bathroom.
1. Consider a classic chrome finish
For a luxe bathroom with a timeless feel, consider opting for chrome fixtures and fittings. A great accompaniment to a marble scheme, chrome makes an understated addition to a bathroom that's guaranteed to stand the test of time.
We love this Double Crake Vanity Basin Suite from Drummonds and can't imagine not feeling (at least a little bit) glam getting ready in front of it every morning.
2. Consider opting for minimalist luxury
If you like the idea of a luxurious bathroom without the extravagant opulence, consider opting for a more minimalist-inspired luxury.
Simple silhouettes and well chosen materials – think hardwoods and concrete finishes – can create a soothing and luxurious feel when combined. Complete the look with industrial inspired light fittings and a statement matt-black freestanding bath.

3. Choose marble for a space that oozes opulence
Marble is the go-to material if you're looking to design a bathroom that oozes sophistication, opulence and luxury. A light coloured finish will make a bathroom seem large and light, particularly in a space with high ceilings and large windows. Couple with white sanitaryware for a classic feel.
4. Embrace pattern for a unique finish
Combining stylish patterned floor tiles with classically luxe features – a statement mirrored wall and freestanding bath being great examples – is a great option for designing a bathroom that is unique and full of character, yet luxurious.
5. Design a space with a stylish double sink
Practical and luxurious, double sinks are reminiscent of high-end hotel suites and are a worthy addition to a bathroom shared by busy couples.
We love the way brass fixtures complement the darker, more industrial feel of this bathroom by Merlyn Showering.
6. Add a statement double shower (if space allows)
Another example of bathroom indulgence, a statement double shower makes for a truly luxe addition. By keeping the shower fittings relatively simple, there's ample opportunity to make a statement with unique tiling.
We love this use of white hexagonal tiles and the addition of a recessed shelf unit. Recreate the look with Merlyn Showering.
7. Create the illusion of space (and add a touch more luxury) with a mirrored wall
In addition to creating the illusion of a larger and lighter space, a mirrored wall enhances the luxurious feel of a bathroom. This is particularly effective if positioned so that statement lighting or a freestanding bath are reflected.
8. Emphasise original features
If your bathroom is blessed with original features, it's worth ensuring that you're emphasising them as examples of traditional craftsmanship. This will, in turn, add to the high-spec feel of your space. Simply positioning a freestanding bath in front of a dramatic original window will draw attention to it, creating a focal point.
9. Opt for elegance in a country bathroom
A classic, all-cream scheme is an elegant option for a country bathroom. Emphasise original features and ensure that new additions are in keeping with the traditional style for a luxurious look that suits a period property. A reclaimed fireplace and timeless freestanding bath make luxurious additions to this country cottage.
10. Design a stand-out hand basin
If you're trying to create a luxury feel in your bathroom but are limited by budget, investing in one statement piece can be an effective solution. We'd recommend tackling the area around the hand basin, which can function as a focal point and make a dramatic difference to the feel of a space.
We love the striking combination of this nickel finish, freestanding Hebdern Vanity Basin (available at Drummonds) with a stylish mirror and industrial inspired wall lights. Style with delicate house plants and good quality hand soap to enhance the luxurious feel.
