Deco New York has compiled a list of 10 ideas for turning your bathroom into a luxurious one. Check them out!
Contractor Chip Wade of Elbow Room turns an attic into a breathtaking master suite with a sleek bathroom that opens up to the bedroom. The centerpiece of the room is a freestanding tub, which is flanked by matching his-and-her vanities. Behind the curtains is a large walk-in shower and extra dressing area.
Cool and chic, this master bathroom designed by Sarah Richardson of Sarah’s House mixes marble with other nature stone elements. A pair of sleek hexagonal mirrors hang above a custom double vanity while a freestanding tub brings a contemporary feel to the space.
Custom designed architectural details frame the freestanding tub in this brilliant blue bathroom. Contractor Chip Wade of Elbow Room brings in a sisal area rug and jute rope accents to add a natural and beachy touch to this contemporary space.
In his family’s home in northern Italy, designer Brian Boitano of The Brian Boitano Project transforms a dark space into a rustic Italian bathroom. As a nod to the home’s heritage, Brian leaves areas of the home’s original stone walls exposed while stone vessel sinks and a zinc tub add to the bathroom’s Old World feel.
This master bathroom designed by Stephen Fanuka of Million Dollar Contractor features luxurious hand-painted wallpaper and a custom Carrara marble shower. Even though the materials have varying textures, he keeps the look clean with a monochromatic color palette.
Centered in a bay window, the freestanding tub in this beautiful master bath is as sculptural as it is inviting. Designer Liz Williams chose this symmetrical arrangement to play up the classic architecture of the space, and to create a focal point in the large bath.
In this contemporary master bath, the warmth of natural wood balances the stark elegance of the freestanding tub, for a look that’s sleek and sophisticated. “The simplicity of the materials and layout gives the occupant a calming sense when in the space,” says architect Steve Besch. “The clean cedar wall is a relaxing backdrop to the freestanding tub and decorative light fixture.
Even the most well-appointed, high-end bath must offer practical features. To help this one serve the dual masters of style and substance, designer Wendy Ann Miller created dual vanities with a mix of closed and open storage, topped with sculptural vessel-style lavatories. The result, says the designer, is “a sophisticated space with timeless appeal, that suits the homeowners’ needs for both function and luxury.”
Not every house has room for a sprawling master bath, but luxury comes in small packages, too. Case in point: this compact master bath, which boasts a light-as-air look and pampering shower accessories. “The space had good bones to start with, but I wanted to give it a dose of personality and a larger appearance,” says designer Yanic Simard. “The clear glass fixed shower panel, frosted inset cabinet door, floating vanity and airy porcelain tiles visually open up the space, while the mosaic-tiled shower niche adds pleasing variety without appearing busy. The deep toned vanity adds a rich counterpoint without adding too much weight, for a perfect balance of materials.”
In a personal steam room, designer and architect Peter Rose created sculpted body recliners to provide a truly relaxing experience. “The undulating forms of the recliners are tied to the rectilinear forms of the wall through the integration of mosaic tile on both. Glazed porcelain wall tiles provide an elegant and immaculate spa counterpoint,” says Rose.
