Hotel-style bathroom trends to inspire a luxurious update

There’s nothing more luxurious than a hotel-style bathroom in the comfort of your home. You want to walk into a chic and comfortable bathroom after a long day – delighting in the beauty of a gorgeous interior while relaxing those tense muscles under a state-of-the-art rainshower.

A hotel bathroom is the ultimate design choice when it comes to adding a touch of glamour to your home. Look at the way tiles are laid – in minimalistic straight lines or the visually impactful chevron – or the elegant fittings and accessories that rival the luxurious experience of a hotel bathroom.

From boutique designs to glamourous his-and-hers configurations, there are many ways to create the five-star bathroom that you’ve desired all this while. Follow the footsteps of some of the world’s best hotels to give your bathrooms a luxurious update.

Closer to Nature

Embrace the tropical weather with a bathroom that brings you closer to nature. Elegant faucets and vintage-style tubs give a contemporary touch to the traditional Balinese design style. (Four Seasons Bali)

Terrazzo Edge

Enter The William Vale and be inspired by an extravagant display of geometric mirrors with complementing terrazzo surfaces in an all-white bathroom. If you’re not a fan of terrazzo, substitute with granite (with small specks) or veiny marble to create similar visual impact. (The William Vale)

High Contrasts

Inside the Vue Beijing, a whimsical play of colour-tinted screens creates a nice contrast against dark marble surfaces. Contrary to popular belief, this approach is great for smaller bathrooms — darker schemes bring forth a more glamourous outlook. (Vue Beijing)

Creative Tiling

Bored of conventional tiles? 2019 invites you to embrace new materials and finishes on the wall — think chevron, asymmetrical cuts and herringbone. (Sangha by Octave)

White Marble

Create a decadent bathroom outfitted in creamy white Carrara marble like this one in London’s Hotel Café Royal. A handcrafted marble tub in similar material acts as a centrepiece to this luxurious bathroom setting. (Hotel Café Royal)

Mosaic All Over

Mosaic is making a huge comeback in 2019. And by huge we mean all over the space. Duotone mosaic finishes on the floor, walls and ceiling create a truly luxurious feel without being too ostentatious. This is the kind subtle elegance that is preferred by most ardent minimalists. (Sangha by Octave)

Wooden Floor

Walk into a bathroom that invites you closer to nature with wooden flooring that brings in warmth and cosiness. Match wood tones with ultra-sleek white surfaces to create a contemporary look. (Chivasom)

Private Retreat

If you’re thinking of what to do in your 2,000 sq.ft. bathroom space, think of a retreat-like walk-in area that provides everything you’d expect from a five-star spa. Curate the space with your personal likings that may include a rain shower, zen garden and an en-suite walk-in wardrobe. (Dedon Island)
