Earlier this year, the style experts over at Houzz revealed which spaces have most inspired their readers all around the world. And unsurprisingly, the beautiful bathroom above, designed by Interior Therapy in Buckinghamshire, received the coveted ‘Best in Houzz 2016 award’ – it’s been saved to fans’ ideabooks a whopping 170,000 times!
We love the timeless, calm atmosphere in this room. It’s the kind of bathroom you’d expect to find in a boutique cotswold hideaway – dark wood, subway tiles and traditional bathroom furniture; finished off with a few personal touches. And of course, the walk-in shower looks like our idea of heaven…
Read on to find out how to recreate this look in your own home.
1 – There’s plenty of vintage touches in this bathrooms, such as the Art Deco-inspired towel warmer by Myson. Not only does it heat up the room in style, it provides a beautiful focal point when you enter. And of course, it helps ensure toasty towels when you step out the shower! If you can, pick a ‘dual fuel’ warmer which gives you the option of turning them on during the summer months, when the central heating might be off.
2 – The shower space is the perfect combination of traditional and modern, with the walk-in enclosure and classic overhead shower rose. Although the space is pretty large to begin with, the frameless glass panel allow light to flood in so you’ll never feel claustrophobic. Heritage Bathrooms offer a similar exposed shower design – they make an eye-catching statement, perfect for a wake-up shower. Pick a shower with a diverter for when you just need a quick rinse.
3 -We think the dark wood floor really brings this space to life – it creates a warm and cosy atmosphere whilst blurring the lines between classic and contemporary. Our Orchard Walnut plank tiles are a near-identical match to the stained oak used and because they’re waterproof, they’re perfect for wet areas. Stagger the joints and you won’t be able to notice the difference.
4 – Subway tiles make a great choice in this bathroom and really tie the room together. The grey shade chosen has a real sophisticated flavour and the brick-bond pattern gives the walls extra depth and detail, especially with with contrasting grout colour. Our Ludlow Purbeck wall tiles offer a really similar style.
5 – We really like the way the end wall is part tiled and painted in a complementary tone. The best way to make a house a home is by adding little personal touches such as the framed print and stylish magazine holder. The talented folk at Remodelista have a handy guide to making your own holder, great if you have a spare belt or two lying around
