How to add character to create luxury bathrooms

Feature walls

The quickest way to update your bathroom is to create a feature wall. Choose a bold paint colour, or a range of eye-catching patterned tiles, to make your space look special. Alternatively if you want to keep the same look for each wall while still adding interest, use decorative glass or mosaic tiles to create an accent border against a background of simpler wall tiles.

Focal point

Chances are that your bath or shower is the biggest item in your bathroom, so if one of these is replaced it can change the way your whole space looks. A freestanding bath with an unusual design such as a slipper bath can give your bathroom the wow factor. For shower baths, ditch the shower curtain and add a bath screen to make your shower feel instantly more luxurious.


A great way to make your bathroom look unique is to add artwork. You could hang one large piece to work as a focal point, or perhaps use lots of smaller framed pictures to create a gallery wall. Deluxe accessories can do the same job- an ornate mirror is an instant update for a stylish space, or glam up your lighting with a sparkling chandelier for the ultimate in opulence.


While designing your luxury bathroom, it is best to choose what look you are going for- be it traditional, spa-style, minimalist – and then stick to it. Bathrooms look best with a clear theme as opposed to lots of conflicting types of d├ęcor. Likewise, choosing one strong colour scheme or perhaps varying shades of the same colour will ensure your bathroom looks smart. Monochrome bathrooms are becoming increasingly popular, as you can add pops of colour with different accessories to suit your mood.
