Last year we gave our family bathroom a much-needed update: we ripped everything out and installed a new suite, tiles, floor and storage. It’s no exaggeration to say that our bathroom is small, so while we were able to create a lovely new look, we were very much restricted by the size of the room. We did lots of research, with the aim of finding fixtures and fittings that would work well in a small space, and we’re really pleased with the finished room.
That said, there were lots of luxury products that I spotted and resisted along the way! I thought it would be fun to dream a little and share my favourites with you, so here’s what I’d put on my luxury bathroom wish list if space – and cash! – were no object.
This would be right at the top of my wish list. We’ve never had room for anything other than an over-bath shower, and it would be wonderful to have a big walk-in design that really lets you shower in style. Walk-in showers are easier to clean too, which is great for a busy family bathroom. They also offer easier access if mobility is an issue; click here to see the Premier Care in Bathing product range designed with this in mind.
His ‘n’ Hers sinks
If you’re the only one who ever wipes toothpaste off the family sink, you’ll know why this is on my list! My very own sink would be a real indulgence; I’m thinking a big, raised bowl, set into a beautiful marble worktop and finished off with a modern chrome mixer tap. Maybe one day…
I absolutely love jacuzzi or whirlpool baths, so this would be a must-have for my luxury bathroom. It would have to be generously sized so I could really get comfy, and as this is my dream wish list there’d be a built-in TV on the wall too. Bliss.
Built-in sound system
Now this would be cool. I’d install speakers in the ceiling and choose a vanity mirror with speakers too, so that we could all play our favourite music via bluetooth while using the bathroom. I’m not sure our nine year old would ever get out of the shower if we did this!
I think clever storage is key to any successful room design, and my luxury bathroom would definitely need to be clutter-free. I’d have built-in cupboards with push-click door panels that blend seamlessly into the wall, with plenty of space for towels, toiletries and bath toys.
I’m getting completely carried away here, but I’ve always loved the idea of building an aquarium into an internal wall, and I think the bathroom would be the perfect place. Imagine relaxing in the bath while watching beautiful tropical fish swim around, that would really take your mind off the day’s stresses wouldn’t it? The kids would love it too – as would our cat no doubt!
This wish list has been lots of fun to create – I think when it comes to interiors it’s great to let your imagination run riot every now and then. What would your luxury bathroom wish list look like?
