“ It is not only the external aesthetic that inspires us, we also love interiors. We are particularly proud of our kitchens, bathrooms, joinery details and finishes. We have extensive knowledge of products, materials, appliances, fixtures and fittings, so you get the most beautifully designed and detailed interiors.”
Here are 15 of the best luxury bathroom design ideas.
You can install underfloor heating two ways, in the tile bed or the concrete slab. The tile bed option is more costly to run but can be turned on and off whereas the heating in the slab is cheaper but operates more seasonally.
A truly luxurious bathroom should have at least one spot for a delicate fern or beautiful orchid. Make sure it gets some filtered light and plenty of moist air, so you will hardly need to look after them.
Some of the best spa baths are simple normal baths that have been retrofitted. You can get one with bubbles, massage jets or both, but make sure you think about where to house the spa motor to minimise noise but provide easy access.
There are times when you just need something to read, or you don't want to miss the footy. Perhaps you want to relax to Handel in the spa.
Not just functional but elegant. Heated towel rails and warmers come in all sorts of designs & can even be retrofitted. My favourite are the individual wall mounted rails - they are more expensive to install but look the smartest.
If you have ever been to the tropics, you will appreciate the outdoor showers. There is something particularly luxurious about a bathroom that opens out into the fresh air and sunlight.
When you do your bathroom lighting design, keep in mind that you might want some soft lighting. Harsh lighting can really spoil the mood.
All the great bathrooms feature natural stones. There's a limestone, marble or granite to suit everyone, even if you want pure contemporary luxury.
One of the real benefits of having a double shower is that you can install different types of shower rose. I personally like to have one where a hand spray is fitted to an adjustable bar and another that just rains from the ceiling. The seat can help with shaving your legs, resting, injuries, showering children and the elderly.
Suction cup cushions for the bath are a great invention. You can even leave them on the bath and they drip dry.
I really like the sheet-flow style bath spouts that deliver a thin wall of water into the bath. There are also some very cool designer spouts and even a range of ceiling mounted bath fillers.
Kitsch - possibly?. Luxurious - definitely! Just be careful it's got the right electrical rating.
Okay - 2 basins are a personal thing, and it does depend a little on the design and the size. But most of my clients would consider 2 bathroom basins essential for a luxurious master ensuite.
It's important to locate your bathroom carefully so ask your architect how your en-suite bathroom can share the view. Consider different levels, nano glass and sheer blinds.
A big bathroom is often a more relaxing bathroom. Perhaps it's because you aren't worried about bumping into something. However, good design is really important else the space will be wasted.
