In every room or particular area of the house there's one element or furniture piece which stands out from the rest and which dictates the way everything else is placed and oriented. In the bathroom, that element is usually the bathtub. Its central role is due to its size but also its function and the ambiance that revolves around it. Bathtubs come in numerous different styles, shapes, sizes, colors, finishes and they can also be made of various different materials. Each type is special and inspiring in its own way. Freestanding bathtubs are usually the most interesting and eye-catching ones. The ones in the Papillon series are especially beautiful. Each tub is carved is carved from a single block of material and is made to order, with the possibility to be customized. You can choose from seven different materials and finishes including granite, travertine, sandstone, limestone and Carrara marble. The sandstone version looks very much like a wooden bathtub and that can potentially give the entire room a luxurious spa-like feel.
Some key things to think about are: Is it a family bathroom? If so, you'll probably want to factor in lots of storage space. Do you always shower and rarely bathe? Consider a standalone shower or wet room instead of installing a bath you won't use. If you like baths and showers, a bath with a shower it gives you a flexible option. Is space at a premium? Think about how you could incorporate storage cupboards on the walls rather than floor – maybe above the bath or even built in underneath. Do you want to use your bathroom to relax in? Consider getting a freestanding bath for a luxurious feel, and having somewhere close by to store candles and magazines. Are you a couple sharing the bathroom? How about getting two basins to make getting ready in the morning less chaotic? If someone will be using it to do make-up or dress in, then you'll want to make sure there is plenty of light and a decent-sized mirror. Asking yourself these questions will help you refine the little changes to make or elements to incorporate that will make a lot of difference to your bathroom and your enjoyment of it.

You can use pretty much anything for your bathroom floor as long as it's waterproof and won't get too slippery when wet. These days, most people choose tiles (marble or granite look good), sheeted or tiled vinyl (a sensible option if you're on a budget), or wood-effect laminate. It's also possible to have a hardwood floor, but you'll need to treat it and make sure you don't leave it wet.
