Let these 5 chic bathroom designs inspire your next home makeover

Bathroom design ideas

While the bathroom may not initially seem like the most exciting room to decorate, it plays just as much of an integral role in your home as the bedroom – serving as one of the few spaces that has the power to set your tone for the day and your mood as you slip into bed at night. Your bathroom design should reflect just as much about your personality as any other room, bringing together complimentary textures, colour palettes and fixtures to create your own personal sanctuary.

If all this talk about bathrooms is making you realise that yours may be due for a little bit of an upgrade, look no further than the world of Instagram for the ultimate bathroom design inspiration from your favourite interior designers and stylists. Whether you're looking to add a touch of colour with some statement tiles, or prefer to start simple by changing your bathroom faucets, here are five bathroom designs to help inspire your next makeover.

Marble has the ability to elevate any bathroom space, but this honey onyx-clad bathroom takes elegance to a new level. Complimented perfectly by the gold wall sculpture (something we're seeing more of in bathroom spaces), and a simple white tub, this is exactly what master ensuite dreams are made of.

The beauty of wallpaper is that you have the creative freedom to be as understated or over-the-top as you wish, based on the design you choose and the space it's being placed in. Off-setting this black and white floral design with timber cabinetry and a navy door helps balance the boldness of the wallpaper.

 

Don't overlook the humble bathtub

Functioning as the centrepiece of any master bathroom, the bathtub plays an integral role in the feel and design of your bathroom. With so many options available, it's important to choose a style that compliments the other features in your space while still making a statement.

If you don't feel quite bold enough to cover your bathroom walls with a statement tile, a simpler way to incorporate the design choice into the space is by placing the tiles on the floor instead and pairing them back with a fresh white wall.

Sometimes all it takes to give your bathroom a lift is to upgrade your accessories. Make the space feel afresh again with new plants, a marble bath stool or even a free-standing towel rack.
