How to upscale your bathroom with boutique hotel chic

04 Aug

If you want to add some style and chic to your bathroom, then look to the boutique hotel for inspiration. Defined by their style and elegance, a hotel bathroom is the height of luxury and it's an achievable look for contemporary bathrooms in your own home.

Fabulous and freestanding

The freestanding bath is synonymous with boutique hotel chic. If you're brave enough, then install your bathtub in the bedroom at the foot of the bed. Otherwise choose either an elegant and traditional roll top bath or something sleeker and more contemporary and make it the focal point of your bathroom. If you have the space, centre your bathtub in the middle of the room and surround with wardrobes and vanity units for the ultimate dressing room.

The walk in wet room

If you prefer a shower, or have a generous enough bathroom to include a shower as well as a tub, then the walk in wet room will effortlessly add hotel bathroom style. For a complete spa experience, add a waterfall shower head, massage jets and steam. Floor to ceiling tiling creates the perfect finish of effortless luxury.

Focus on the vanity

Side by side twin sinks are the height of hotel bathroom style. No more arguing over products and plenty of space for you both to get ready in the morning is ideal for many couples and can easily be achieved with a generous double sink vanity unit and matching mirrors and lighting.

Be clever with accessories

Remember the last time you stayed in a hotel. What made the bathroom stand out for you, the ceramics or the accessories? Beautiful toiletries, pure cotton towels like clouds and gorgeously scented candles are quick and easy ways to upscale your bathroom without blowing the budget. Keeping your bathroom clutter free with concealed shelving and cupboards is the smart way to bring sleek chic to the family bathroom or ensuite.

Keep it cosy

A heated towel rail and underfloor heating are both must haves for a contemporary hotel bathroom style. After all, there's nothing more luxurious than a hot fluffy towel and warm tiles under your toes when it's freezing outside!
