Modern barn bathroom with separating wall

Modern barn bathroom with clever separating wall

Got a large bathroom? Create the feel of two rooms in one with a clever separating wall. This is a great way to keep the loo out of sight when you’re having a good long soak. It also creates an interesting layout, rather than having everything along the outer walls. Here, the separating wall falls intentionally short of the ceiling, so the space doesn’t feel enclosed.

Modern country bathroom with grey roll-top tub

Modern country bathroom with grey roll-top tub

Think country has to be all about floral wallpapers? Think again. This country bathroom has a thoroughly modern-looking style that’s just right for the property. White tiles around the bath make for a clean backdrop that lets the roll-top tub really stand out, especially with its dark-grey finish. A cool ladder towel rail and exposed-brick wall also tune into the contemporary vibe.

Small bathroom with space-saving vanity unit

Small bathroom with space-saving vanity unit

Wall-hung fittings are a great way to maximise space in a compact bathroom. Because you can see the floor beneath them, the room will automatically feel bigger. Wall-hung fittings also offer clean lines and have a sleek appearance. Another neat trick is using a ladder rail for hanging towels – they take up virtually no space and look pretty cool, too.

Neutral bathroom with large-format travertine tiles

Neutral bathroom with large-format travertine tiles

Use large-format tiles to give your bathroom walls an almost seamless look with far fewer grout lines than smaller tiles. Using the same design on walls and floors can make a space seem bigger because of the lack of visual interruptions. Small brick tiles create a neat border below the wall paint on the right.

Let period features stand out with careful decorating. Blue walls lend a traditional feel to the space and frame the huge proportions of the Gothic window – not to mention the view. White fittings keep the look clean, but are in a traditional style that ties in with the period of the property.

Storage space is key to a tidy bathroom and these kitchen-style storage cupboards will hide all unsightly clutter. They also provide a handy ledge for displaying the things you want on show.

White bathroom with freestanding tub and bunting

White bathroom with freestanding tub and bunting

Add hotel chic to your bathroom with a traditional freestanding tub. A beautiful bath is all you need to make your space feel special – position it beneath a window so you can enjoy a view while you soak away the day. Bunting and a brightly painted vintage shelving unit in water-inspired aqua shades are a very appropriate choice of colour.

Traditional-bathroom-with-grey-wall-panelling

Traditional bathroom with grey wall panelling

Give traditional wall panels a modern look by painting them in a dark grey colour. Not only does the paint act as a highlighter to beautiful period detailing, it also lets the bath make the biggest impact possible. Nearly black floor tiles add to the drama. Claw feet raise the bath, thereby increasing the visible floor area and enhancing the sense of space.

Green country bathroom with white shutters

Green country bathroom with white wood shutters

This country bathroom has very clean lines, thanks mostly to the tongue-and-groove panelling that surrounds the bath, lower walls and vanity unit. The plantation-style shutters are a sleek addition, too, which ties in with the scheme. An old wooden corner cupboard is handy for displaying smart toiletries.

Sleek modern bathroom with marble tiling

Sleek modern bathroom with marble tiling

Add a textural note to a bathroom scheme with Carrara marble tiles arranged in a herringbone pattern. The same tiles have been used on the bath surround as on the walls, creating a seamless look. Shower screens may be a necessity but, with its barely there looks, this one poses no threat to the main decorative feature.

Modern grey cloakroom with conical basin

Modern grey cloakroom with conical basin

Give a narrow room visual impact with clever wall coverings. Spanish encaustic tiles in a cream colour lighten the space, making it seem bigger, while the dark grey wall draws the eye to the end of the room. The conical basin is a real focal point and its shape works well in a slim space, too.

Monochrome cloakroom with statement wallpaper

Take a cloakroom or understairs loo from ordinary to fabulous with an impactful monochrome wallpaper like this one.

CHI Nov 17 p50 Neutral attic bathroom with claw-foot bath

Attic bathroom with claw-foot bath

The slanted ceilings of an attic lend a magical feel to any space. They can be a little tricky for a bathroom, as there’s not much space to install a shower. However, a beautiful freestanding, claw-foot bath will more than make up for the lack of shower. Placed centrally between the eaves and beneath a window, this is the ideal spot for a tub.

25BH Nov 17 p143 En suite shower with neutral tiles

En suite shower with neutral tiles

Make the most of a compact en suite bathroom by installing a large shower, rather than a bath and shower. Even a spacious enclosure will take up less room than a bath and the fact that you can access it at floor level means there is no great interruption of the floor space. A frameless glass screen enhances the feel of flow, too.
