It’s not hard to spot a luxury bathroom. You basically know it when you see it, even if you don’t really know what are the elements that make a bathroom look luxurious and sophisticated in the first place. Every time it's different and every time it's a special set of design characteristics and elements that fulfill the role of focal points for the space. But enough theory and philosophizing for now. Let's have a look at some specific luxury bathrooms to see what makes them special. A marble bathroom has a lot of potential for looking sophisticated and luxurious regardless of the style. Of course, how much marble is in a bathroom is up to the designer to decide. Antolini offers some really amazing examples in this case, like this one for instance. For a lot of the luxury bathrooms designed by Antolini it's basically marble everywhere: on the floor, the walls, the counters and in the shower. You'd think such a simple design approach would result in a rather boring or perhaps overwhelming decor but the key here is finding the right balance between all these surfaces and all the patterns, colors and types of marble involved in the project.
Floating shelves are, as we already mentioned on numerous occasions, extremely practical not just in bathrooms but also in pretty much any room of the house. You can see here a series of glass shelves complemented by a matching side table and an entire wall unit with open storage and display modules. It’s one of the designs proposed by Laufen. The bathroom shower plays its own role in giving this space a totally unique and interesting look. The Horizontal Shower is perhaps the most unconventional one of all. As the name suggests, you have to lie down horizontally when using it as opposed to standing up like you’d expect in most cases. A wall-hung toilet can offer many advantages such as easy cleaning and maintenance, a more open and spacious look and even a more refined and sophisticated appearance. In the case of luxury bathrooms like this one from Ceramica Flaminia this detail also helps to put an emphasis on the beauty of the marble floor.
Also with square, shallow basins, but with more traditional cabinetry is this bathroom design from Duravit. The Brioso wall mounted vanity is a lighter look because the bulk does not sit directly on the floor. This one features drawers, but other styles also have cabinets instead if that‘s a preference. The streamlined look also features wall-mounted fixtures, which free up valuable space on the vanity for placing bathroom necessities. Another innovation for bathrooms is a mirror that has built-in lighting, both embedded in the surface as well as incorporated behind the unit. This gives great task lighting for the mirror and ambient light. This similar, slim-line design is ideal for bathrooms that don’t have a great deal of space. From COMAD, a company based in Poland, these pieces are from the Bali Collection and feature a silhouette that is common across a number of their collections. The vanity sits on the floor but looks more like furniture because of the legs. The side cabinet is a great solution: When storage space is at a premium, go for the vertical. This closed cabinet is stylish and allows you to stash your jumble of bathroom goods behind closed doors, keeping the look clean and uncluttered.
