How grand is this basin? Marble is not a cheap material, but even just a little will inject a classy feel into your look. The large basin, traditional wall-mounted taps and a wooden vanity unit make this bathroom far from ordinary. Natural materials are always beautiful and combining two of them together works a treat. Re-create this look yourself by upcyling an old wooden cabinet and adding a marble countertop and splashback to shield it from water damage.
Wallpaper will make a statement in any room and the bathroom is no exception. A downstairs cloakroom is a prime space to use wallpaper, as bathrooms with a shower or bath will require specialist paper to prevent steam damaging it. Opt for a unique, bold or interesting print to maximise the impact in a small space like this. Fit a sheet of Perspex as a splashback behind the basin to prevent water damaging the wallpaper.
Get a cheerful look using aquatic brights and create a dynamic scheme by covering a feature wall in a reef-inspired design – a coral print will bring back that holiday feeling. Combine energising turquoise and verdant green for a vibrant, modern look. A bold palette like this lends itself to a scheme with a Miami beach vibe – think modern, stylish furniture and glamorous, white, high-gloss finishes. Calm the lively pattern by painting the adjacent walls in a soothing palette of white. Finish off the look with fabulous sea finds. Position them organically as though they’ve washed up on shore amongst coral and sand-beaten glass, as well as watery glazes and sea urchins for a super-chic stylised look.
Alternatively, add depth to a narrow bathroom with a feature wall. One block colour or exposed bricks work well. Don’t be afraid to try dark colours. They will add an elegant and opulent touch to a small bathroom. Bathroom storage is also essential for keeping clutter at bay.
