Bathroom / January 16, 2018 / Eva Cardwell.
A fresh blue and white coastal colour scheme is the ideal backdrop for products with nautical vibes such as contoured sanitaryware and cupboards and ship’s ladder style towel rails. Here a bold geometric tile serves as a visual reference to the points on a compass, and a space-saving, walk-in “harbour” bath has been incorporated for safe, easy bathing for everyone.
Add personality by combining multiple shades of green with exotic wood grains – perhaps adding metallic finishes for a tropical glasshouse look. Decorative floor tiles in bold trellis and geometric designs such as the Hackney range from bathstore will anchor the overall look. And plants have a hugely positive psychological effect on our happiness, so include plenty of moisture-loving ferns and palms.
If a monochromatic look seems a little too intense for your home, there’s an easy way to brighten up the space while adding more visual interest: Just add natural materials such as wood, stone or metal. Choose one or incorporate a variety.
A wet room is the height of modern bathroom style and is ideal for maximising the sense of space, particularly when teamed with a soft colour palette and minimal styling. With no moving parts or doors to open and close, a wet room is also suitable for all ages and accessibility requirements.
