When it comes to revamping the bathroom, many homeowners opt to add some more sumptuous touches to the room, not only to create a stylish space but also to reap the rewards of embracing a little more luxury.

Follow these five tips to combine both luxury and classic elegance in your bathroom.

Go for a Freestanding Bathtub

Nothing says luxury like a soak in a statement bathtub. Whether its a roll-top or claw-foot option, choose a strong and durable material for a decadent feel (some materials will even act as insulators, keeping your water warmer for longer).

The Aegean free standing bath tub is manufactured from Albion Bath Company’s unique Iso-Enamel material and is available in two sizes – 1700 x 825mm and 1800 x 820mm

A slipper bath (with a gentle upsweep to one end) will add timeless elegance to your bathroom, while a shorter, deeper tub is a great solution for those wanting a luxury look in a more compact space.

Some bathtubs are even available with burnished exteriors (often gold, iron or bronze) which would add a real sense of wow-factor to the bathroom.

Choose the Right Shower

If showers are more your thing, then a walk-in shower enclosure is a great choice. Clean and simple in design, yet uber-stylish, combine your walk-in enclosure with a rainfall shower head for the ultimate showering experience.

The Effusio Over-Bath Shower System is available in four different sizes from 1275mm – 1900mm long and can work over any size bath (pictured here over the Tubby Torre Dee roll top bath). The shower water is fed from the bath mixer taps and flows vertically up the rising pipe. Additionally, a useful hand shower and soap basket can be added

If space is at a premium, then you can still combine luxury bathing with practical showering functionality with an over-bath shower. Choose an option with an oval rail and luxurious shower curtains to invoke a sense of classic elegance.

The Right Colour Scheme

Luxury and relaxation go hand in hand in the bathroom, and you choice of colour scheme can make or break the space. Earthy neutral tones are subtle and timeless, while shades of navy or grey provide great alternatives. If you’re after something bolder, then a monochrome scheme is a great option and you can add pops of bright colour with your towels and accessories.

Dual Basins

Give your bathroom some panache by opting for two basins and enjoy the luxury of having your own dedicated basin (enjoy it even more if your partner is not quite as tidy as you are). To keep bathroom clutter under control, you could also go for a basin design with additional storage to allow you to keep all toiletries hidden away.

Heating

Ineffective heating will definitely put a dampener on your bathing experience. While underfloor heating is possible as a retrofit option, some homeowners prefer the traditional elegance of a heated towel rail.
