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.
While a successfully functional kitchen utilizes the primary work triangle, the bathroom doesn’t typically have a one-size-fits-all functional layout. There are zones of functionality to consider, though, within any bathroom, which will play a role in determining the best bathroom layout for your space. While the functionality of most bathrooms tends to revolve around the toilet, you most likely don't want the actual design layout of the bathroom to emphasize this fact or feature. As far as the preferred layout of the toilet, the most common design decision, space permitting, is to tuck it away or even hide it somewhere, either behind a door or a half wall or the vanity. Visually, the more you can remove the focus of the bathroom from this fixture, the more aesthetic the bathroom will look and feel.
Suspended lights and chandeliers can have a place in the bathroom too. While they might not be the style to install over a vanity, they could serve as overhead fixtures or hang above a bathtub. In fact, choosing a statement fixture to hang over a freestanding tub creates a luxurious and relaxing setting for the bathroom. This golden piece is from the Roinn series by Luxi Studioworks of Canada. The Art Deco-inspired pattern is perfect for a bathroom that needs a touch of glamour. If the gold is too bold, the fixture comes in other finishes that are not as shiny but no less stylish. Bright and modern, this type of fixture would be great in a minimalist or industrial bathroom design. Created by Studio Endo, the Alpine V is a modular style from the Alpine chandelier collection. The customizable arrangement could hang along a wall as shown or be used over a tub or other section of the bathroom. It's a cool lighting fixture that provides plenty of illumination.
