Striking monochrome bathroom with glossy black bathtub

Striking monochrome bathroom with glossy black bathtub

This is a well-thought-out scheme that is designed to wow. But it’s not as complicated as it looks. Turning black and white checked tiles on their side to create a diamond-style pattern is a simple trick to add impact and interest. Meanwhile a fabulous tub and a hit of red have eye-catching properties all of their own.

Modern grey bathroom with vase full of budding branches

Grey bathroom with vase of budding branches

It doesn’t take much to jazz up a neutral bathroom. A vase full of budding branches ties in with the colour scheme here, creating interest without adding a colour hit to the space. A large vanity unit with lots of drawers keeps the marble worktop free from all but the essential and decorative.

Ultra compact wet room with wooden panelling

Ultra compact wet room with wooden panelling

A bathroom can be installed in the most tiny of spaces, as this ultra compact wet room shows. With a space-saving sink and no shower enclosure, the room has everything you need without feeling cramped. If you have a dog who likes muddy walks, this kind of arrangement works wonders in a boot room, too.

Narrow bathroom with space for a claw-foot bathtub

Narrow bathroom with space for a claw-foot bathtub

Feeling restricted by the size of your bathroom? Then take a look at this photo for all the inspiration you need. Narrow it may be, but that doesn’t mean that the owners have gone for standard fittings. A claw-foot bath really does give this space the wow factor.

Neutral bathroom with pretty finishing touches

Neutral bathroom with pretty finishing touches

Neutrals are a popular colour for bathrooms – they’re versatile and serene, so we can definitely see why. Sometimes you do just need to add a little something to them, though. That’s where pretty soaps, lotions and potions, flowers, and even jazzy-looking towels come in. Have fun with your neutral space is what we say.

Traditional cloakroom with damask wallpaper

Traditional cloakroom with damask wallpaper

Get the perfect finish with traditional damask prints, period-style fittings and beautifully detailed antique-inspired mirrors. A downstairs cloakroom is a great place to experiment with pattern, as the space is generally quite small, so it won’t look over the top.

Stylish country bathroom with cast-iron tub

Stylish country bathroom with large cast-iron tub

Who says that country style has to look humble? A huge cast-iron bath like this will definitely make a statement. On the windowsill, a relax sign adds a cool modern touch that serves as a reminder of the benefit of a long soak.

Pink bathroom with antiqued glass mirror

Pink bathroom with antiqued glass mirror

This room is packed with vintage charm. From the antiqued glass mirror to the painted vanity unit and marble countertop, there are a lot of traditional elements at play here. Twin basins are great for couples in a hurry, while cupboards keep everything neatly stowed away.

Classic blue bathroom with beautifully plastered walls

Classic blue bathroom with beautifully plastered walls

Give your bathroom an extra-special feel with polished plaster. Rather than a solid paint colour, the plaster here has subtle variations in tone and a sheeny finish that reflects light. A freestanding bath makes the look even more luxurious and is a good match for the walls.

White glossy bathroom with orange splashback

White glossy bathroom with orange splashback

Add colour to your bathroom with a vibrant glass splashback, such as the orange one here. Rather than tiles, it provides a seamless surface that’s easy to clean (no grout lines – yay!) A recessed shelf provides a handy ledge for cosmetics (or bath toys) plus a cool frame for a further burst of orange.

Neutral bathroom with double basin and floating vanity units

Neutral bathroom with double basin and floating vanity units

Okay, these vanity units may not actually be ‘floating’, but they certainly look like they are! With the seamless basin counter top and the tiles at the back, this bathroom has heaps of style. And it’s precisely those two things that trick the eye into thinking the units are floating free, rather than fixed to the wall.

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.

Neutral bathroom with mosaic-style tiling

Neutral bathroom with mosaic-style tiling

Bathroom updates needn’t cost a lot. New accessories can make a big difference, adding a hit of colour to a neutral space.
