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.
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.
These molten blobs look as though they were captured mid-movement and attached to the wall. The sconces are by SKLO, a lighting company from the Czech Republic. Crafted from mouth-blown glass, each one is slightly different, adding to the artisan appeal. These fixtures are ideal for adding ambient light in the bathroom. Who needs a nightlight when you can use beautiful, stylish sconces to add a soft glow to the bathroom? This is the company‘s Twin Sconce, new for 2018, that was launched at ICFF in New York. For real drama in the bathroom, how about choosing a lighted glass vanity? This glass countertop has depth and interior texture, in addition to a cool blue light. While it certainly doesn‘t add enough light for tasks, it puts off a chic glow that is attention-getting and can serve as a low light source at night when you don’t want bright lights to ruin your sleep. Moreover, glass is smooth and easy to keep clean. We would love to have this in a smaller version for a really awesome powder room that would be the talk of the neighborhood.
