Large en suite shower room with rainwater shower

Large en suite with rainwater shower

Add warmth with natural wood. In this en suite shower room, oak floorboards and an oak-topped freestanding vanity stop the white scheme looking clinical. Grey grout adds interest to the white tiling, too. In an attic bathroom, place a rainwater shower head as high up as you can, even if it means it’s at the top of the ceiling.

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.

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.

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 kitchen-style storage cupboards

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. Above, a cool feature has been made out of the homemade industrial-style shelving, which uses plumber’s piping to support it.

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.

White bathroom with flamingo wallpaper

White bathroom with flamingo wallpaper

Add a small flash of pattern to a plain bathroom. This cute blue flamingo wallpaper doesn’t take up much space and is almost like a large artwork on an otherwise white tiled wall.

Monochrome cloakroom with statement wallpaper

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