For an ultra-modern and very practical effect, you could even use concrete. Underfloor heating adds a really cosy touch – as well as helping to dry the bathroom, and prevent damp and mould from forming – if you have hard floors. If you're considering underfloor heating, visit our guide to get an idea of the costs involved. As well as possibly using tiles for your floor, you'll need to use tiles on the walls around the shower or bath, which should be added after they're fitted. You can also get the same tiles for your bathroom walls and floor if you want a streamlined look. Options for wall-tile types include glass, ceramic or natural stone. There are matt or gloss tiles, and you can have small mosaic ones right through to large tiles, which can make a space-limited bathroom feel larger. Tiles can also be used to make a statement – bold colours or different finishes can have a big impact. If they're used sparingly, such as just around a shower or even statement tiles as a strip running through plain white tiles, it doesn't have to be expensive.
Wall-mounted sinks. What they are: These are sink basins that are attached to the wall--no pedestal, no vanity. Benefits: Efficient and perfect for tight spaces. That said, they also can be used in larger bathrooms as well. You'll often find them in commercial settings (think of the sinks in movie theater restrooms). Today's materials and options can offer interesting flourishes (i.e. they don't need to be boring). Vessel sinks. What they are: Essentially, the whole basin/bowl sits on top of the counter. Benefits: They can be styled in so many ways from modern to rustic, turn-of-the-century-farmhouse chic. Bonus? If they're part of a vanity, they free up space underneath the countertop. Here's a collection of vessel sinks on Houzz.
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.
