Who wouldn't want their bathroom to feel like a luxury hotel? Hotel bathrooms are a DREAM! Probably because they don't have to hold myriad toiletries and towels and well... stuff, but that doesn't mean you can't get some of those hotel vibes at home, and on a budget too!
So we asked the pros over at Victorian Plumbing and bathroom design expert George Holland to pick their favourite luxury hotel bathrooms and then come up with the best tips for recreating the look at home, and on a much smaller budget...

1. Add opulence like The Four Seasons in Florence
'There is nothing utilitarian about the bathrooms at the Four Seasons in Florence. Whilst a bath in the middle of the room might not be practical, you can still bring touches of opulence into your bathroom by incorporating marble accessories, wall lighting and even a gilded mirror to add interest.'
2. Class colours like The Silo in Cape Town
'Pops of clashing colour complement vintage vanity units to create a truly unique bathroom experience. Whilst you might not be able to recreate the views from this hotel bathroom, you can take inspiration by mixing the old and new together. Try a vintage chandelier style pendant light styled alongside a modern and brightly coloured storage bench?'
3. Go for a moody look like The Siam in Bangkok
'White subway tiles with dark grout complement the dark furniture, taps and sink, this monochrome bathroom is one of the easiest and cost-effective looks to recreate at home. Choosing a simple, white bathroom suite keeps costs down, so you can really splash out on the accessories such as anthracite storage and matte black taps.'
4. Create a serene feel like San Clemente Palace Kempinski in Venice
'This is a great example of small space luxury where less really does mean more. The simple white freestanding bath is on an angle, which immediately makes the space feel inviting. The glass shower enclosure allows the light to travel all the way through the space and reflect off the white walls and flooring, giving the illusion of a larger room.'
5. Choose bold tiles like Como Point Yamu in Phuket
'Blue is a natural fit for a bathroom as it is soothing, relaxing and evokes images of the sea! Paired with white fixtures such as the white freestanding bath and twin sinks, it’s a crowd-pleasing option. This hotel has given their blue bathroom a modern update with mosaic tiles, a deep freestanding soaking tub and plenty of accessories, including a leaning ladder towel rail.'
6. Pick a boho feel like Six Senses Zil Pasyon in the Seychelles
'With so much moisture and humidity in the bathroom, it’s no wonder we focus on the durability of the materials we use to decorate, but this can leave the room feeling stark and cold.
Natural materials such as wood, jute and rattan can soften the room and warm it up, which is what the Six Senses has done by pairing the organic touches with white fittings. Be inspired by nature and bring the outside into your bathroom by updating smaller details, rather than the larger surfaces or furniture.'
