If you’re the type who’s serious on remodeling your bathroom so you can get the theme of a modern contemporary bathroom like those found in luxury hotels well, keeping this guides in mind will help you achieve that “hotel style” look in your bathroom.

Layout is the Key

  • If you have the space, then getting the layout right is the key to a successful luxury bathroom. If you can, you’ll want to install a separate shower, the bigger the better, with an almighty, powerful shower. This is where the luxury bit comes in. If you can afford to, spend your money where it counts, on the things that add real value to the space. You can always save on the other bits if you need to, but getting a good shower will really up the value of your room.
  • Next up is the bath. To make it really luxurious, you’ll want to add something in the center of the room. Now you do need a big room to be able to do this, but making the bath the centerpiece of the space will add the wow factor and allow for really indulgent design.
  • How about a his and hers set of sinks? Again, if space and budget are plentiful, this is another layout element that really adds a punch and gives your bathroom that decadent feel.

All in the Detail

This is the good time to show a bit of artistic flair in you. Adding lots of extra details will give the bathroom a more indulgent feel so go mad with the candles, soft, fluffy towels and baskets of luxurious toiletries. Don’t forget the storage too, so you can hide away all the day to day practical accessories like toothbrushes and shaving items. (Yes it might drive you mad to open a cupboard every time you want to brush your teeth, but no-one said being stylish was practical).

Decorate the Walls

People are often a little worried about adding art to walls in the bathroom for fear of the moisture damaging them. But a good flow of fresh air and you should be fine. This is how you can give the bathroom real personality, and if you look at all the amazing hotels, they add lots of art to their bathroom walls. If art isn’t your thing, how about some paint patterns or even wallpaper? Using the right product, and keeping the room condensation free will mean it can be really effective and look great too.

Create Reflections

This is where adding mirrors to provide watery reflections can really be effective. Adding touches of luxury, mirrors are also a great way to make the space feel lighter and brighter, as well as being practical of course.
