There’s nothing better than being inspired by real bathrooms. I’m talking spaces that are beautiful but most importantly practical, that are used every day and not just knocked up for a photoshoot. These bathrooms work! And are perfect for kickstarting your design plans if you need a push in the right direction. Check out four fabulous examples below.
Complete indulgence: Teneriffe, QLD
Often we feel the need to book into a day spa to truly pamper ourselves, when in fact achieving spa style luxury at home can be as easy as selecting a few quality pieces. This bathroom is the perfect example of embracing the finer things in life, with its stunning freestanding bath turning routine into ritual. The speckled greys and stone hues of the marble tiles brings a moody, soothing feel, while touches of timber add a rich warmth.

This oasis of modern tranquillity has a strong design aesthetic. Pale grey tiles fit inside a largely monochrome colour palate to give off a cool atmosphere. Benchtops and cabinets draped in greys and timber work in unison to give off a sleek and polished feel. Artistic features are abundant in this contemporary bathroom, which successfully fuses sharp edges with delicate accessories.

Dark vs. light: Austinmer, NSW
Taking a tonal exploration to the extreme, these two tiled-up bathrooms create big impact with bold shades, sleek profiles and simple, purposeful design. The main bathroom employs a restrained colour palette that keeps the room feeling spacious and bright. A generous vanity stretches the length of the room, in warm timber that introduces a natural element to the space. Concealed behind connecting doorways are the washroom and toilet spaces, cohesive in their monochrome colour schemes.
Over in the ensuite and it’s all about drama with moody colours and edgy fittings; seen in the bold charcoal hexagonal tiling and matte black tapware, hooks and rails. The dark tones are brought to life with a warm timber bench top, a feature piece that is the centre point of the bathroom. A crisp white ceramic basin pops against the charcoal and wooden tones, and is a modern addition with its thin edge design.
