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.
Actually, the idea of a high, horizontal window is pretty awesome and perfect for almost any shower or bathroom no matter the type of style. You can even have more than one such window, as exemplified in this contemporary bathroom featured on Ogawafisher. Another possibility is to illuminate the shower indirectly. Instead of having a window in the shower you can have the window positioned on the opposite wall so the light enters the shower and the rest of the bathroom. Of course, that means a transparent glass enclosure is in order for the shower.
Once upon a time, pendants were relegated mainly to the kitchen and dining room, but no longer. These fixtures are a great way to add illumination in the bathroom. This DXV bathroom design uses two pendants to flank the mirror, much as sconces would, adding light to the vanity area. They can also be used without the backlight of the mirror to provide moodier lighting. Also, take note that they are sleek and minimal, not fussy. This makes them perfect for a variety of bathroom styles. Pendants can also be used over the vanity in a more traditional arrangement. This bathroom design puts the fixtures off center over the expanse of countertop, where light is most needed. The large, exposed bulb styles are a novel thing to use on the bathroom, but they add a bit of an eclectic touch to an otherwise modern and minimalist bathroom vanity set. They are also a bright counterpart to the backlighting of the mirror, which is becoming more common in today’s bathroom lighting schemes. Of course, pendant lighting is not limited to the bare-bulb style. Add some luxurious warmth to the bathroom by choosing a pendant like Fin, by Original BTC from the UK. This pendant is made from bone china formed into an organic shape that has a really appealing glow when lit. Any style of pendant can be used in the bathroom, from global and organic to modern or industrial. The main idea is to throw out any preconceived notions of what bathroom lighting should be and instead opt for fixtures that are functional and achieve the look you want.
