Luxury bathroom ideas: 30 ways to get a luxe master bathroom

If you are searching for luxury bathroom ideas, then we have you covered. In a time where we are tapping into self-care and making our homes healthier, creating a master bathroom that is both indulgent and relaxing can do wonders for our physical and mental well-being.

However, luxury doesn’t just mean minimalist bathroom ideas or the latest state-of-the-art technology installed in your master bathroom suite.  

Instead, we’ve found the most gorgeous luxury bathroom designs that are easy to emulate. From quick and cheap modern bathroom ideas, to longer projects will pay dividends over time, there are plenty decor and designs approaches you can take.

Luxury bathroom ideas

Don’t assume every luxury bathroom idea involves spending big. You can get a luxe look with careful vintage buys and smart planning. But of course, splurging big on materials like marble or opulent brassware, is a fast route to a glam space. 

1. Accent your master bathroom with printed wallpaper

You might not think bathroom wallpaper is something you can incorporate into a luxury scheme, but provided you do it correctly, it can make a fantastic, long-lasting impact. 

So whether you choose to wallpaper the entire bathroom in your maximalist home, or zone one area of a minimalist master bathroom with a colorful accent wall, be bold and escape to a printed paradise.

‘Just be sure to avoid high-moisture or humid areas where the wallpaper is likely to come in contact with water,’ says Real Homes Editor in Chief Kaitlin Madden. ‘These will include areas next to the bathtub, washbasin, faucets, shower fixtures and any sanitaryware.’ 

Rest assured however, that the odd splash here or there is unlikely to ruin your handiwork. This is because most luxury bathroom wallpapers are vinyl-coated and are marked specifically for use.

2. Create a spa-like space with mood lighting and plants

One reason we like to book in a spa retreat is to create a sense of escapism and to immerse ourselves in a sensory experience. As well as calming music and tactile touches such as a soft robe and slippers, soft lighting and indoor plants can create a relaxing master bathroom that will provide a sense of sanctuary and offer respite. 

Strategic placement of luxury bathroom lighting next to a vanity mirror will make for a tranquil and inviting scheme. Look out for fixtures with dimmable settings as these will allow you also to adjust the brightness to suit your mood and requirements.

3. Transport yourself to the beach with wall art

A ‘shorefire’ way (pardon the pun!) to add tropical vibes into your master bathroom, themed wall art is fast track way to whisk you to a tropical destination and exude a boutique hotel feel into your home.

From palm trees to white sand beaches, aerial sea shots and sun faded fabrics, style with wooden elements for an on-trend holiday hub in the home.

4. Treat your space to a statement heated towel rail

14 Bathroom Design Trends For 2021 – Luxury Home Remodeling

As the bathroom changes, the possibilities for expansion and more space come to mind. In fact, the goal of having more space is oftentimes the number one reason why home owners choose to remodel. This includes the bathroom too! With compact storage options, you give yourself more room to expand on the bath or shower.

The bigger the bathtub, the more space and relaxation will be available to you. Homeowners deserve a place to wind down after a long day, and what better place to do so than their own bathrooms? While Jacuzzi styled tubs aren’t necessarily are popular as they used to be, we’re seeing a shift in preferences to other large tub styles.

Open showers appear to visually increase the size of your bathroom, while also giving it more space and providing convenience for users. Long gone are the days of worrying about slipping over the edge of the tub while you’re trying to get out and dry off. While some may find this design has a lack of privacy, others enjoy the accessible openness and increased shower space.

Asymmetrical Mirrors are here and better than ever before. Unique and geometric mirror shapes are all the buzz, but that’s not all! Mirrors, just like the rest of the bathroom are becoming smarter. Mirrors can have anti-fog technologies, smart touch abilities, USB charging stations, and just about anything else you can imagine. Long gone are the days of plated mirrors. With shaped frame options taking over, you have the ability to get as creative as possible when it comes to picking out the exact style. And we have not forgotten about the most important detail of bathroom mirrors- lighting. It’s all about the lighting. Getting ready in your sleek and stylish bathroom would mean nothing if you didn’t come out looking flawless,  right?! While we all love the idea of fun shapes and gadgets, functionality is at the top of our list. This is why we are seeing contemporary back lit mirrors as well a front lights increasing in popularity. Back lit mirrors are a more subtle option that will allow for optimal lighting. Lights in the front allow for more creativity, but may distract away from an asymmetrical mirror shape.Keep scrolling for some photo inspiration!

If you bought a pair of slippers just to escape the cold sensation on the bottom of your feet while walking across your bathroom floor; then it might be a good investment for you to consider adding a heating system under your floor.  When the temperatures outside are dropping–your wish could become a reality.  Underfloor heating can be used with a variety of flooring options like:  tile, concrete, vinyl, and wood to name a few.   But in a bathroom, the cold tile can transform into a beautiful soothing warm floor.  Heating systems not only provide heat, but they can also reduce noise levels and possible allergic reactions since there are no air currents disturbing

This Clean and Crisp Super Yacht Is Filled to the Brim with a Luxury Interior

That’s exactly the definition nearly everyone gives to this vessel the moment they set eyes upon it. Just so we’re on the same page this luxury yacht is known as the Metis 63 by Benetti. Oh, you don’t know who they are? Not a problem. They’ve been building sea-faring vessels of any kind since 1873, so you know they mean business.

But for the Metis, Benetti worked with world renowned Bannenberg and Rowell Design. If you remember them from the Predator yacht, great. If you don’t, they’re known as the yachting worlds best known secret. The vessels they work one, will always remain a one of a kind. They will be the point of focus for when we discuss the interior.

That ‘63’ in Metis 63 stands for the length of this vessel’s steel hull, a full 63 meters or 206.6 feet. And like most other seafarers it includes an aluminum superstructure. This allows the designers to create a number of decks and sleek exterior paneling.

As With most modern-day yachts, this one too uses a white and black color scheme. To bring a bit of balance to the mix, the use of metals and woods help set a soft tone to the ship. The large amount of hull integrated windows let you know that this vessel is ready with quite the number sleeping quarters. Up to 13 guests can lay their heads upon those Bannenberg pillows in seven cabins.

To make this designer machine move along the seven seas we will be able to find two MTU diesel engines that put out a total of 3702 HP. It’s enough to keep it cruising at 12 knots with a top speed of 16.

Now on the inside, this ship really shows off what level of comfort and style you can expect. Just to start, we can see the sun deck situated at the bow of the ship and equipped with 8 lounge chairs and a perfectly lain wooden flooring. While at the rear of this same deck we find a sitting area suitable for all guests on the ship at once. Once again, the wooden flooring is not missing and helps warm the white and beige materials.

Even though the Metis has large windows that offer natural light into the interior spaces, the use of LED lighting in the ceiling helps maintain the soft light the furniture sets well through the night. Any walls that aren’t made of glass are completed with wood.

A dining area fit for all and equipped with wine cabinets can also be found. But to entertain your guests, the Metis is set with an entertainment area that also includes a grand piano. Just in case you get enough courage to start playing after you’ve had a few drinks from the onboard bar.

Once you need to pass out, just head up to one of your silk linen bedrooms and pass out. But upon waking up, be sure to hydrate and head on down to

Meet the Mumbai family that built a Rs 25 Cr business by bringing German luxury kitchen brands to India

In 1998, while visiting Japan, Hamendra and Rati Sharma would walk to the train station every day and see a store by Poggenpohl, a leading German kitchen brand.

Captivated by the luxurious designs on display, inspired the couple to start a business that would bring luxury and modular kitchens to India.

The duo made this dream a reality in 1998 by starting SIS Imports in Mumbai, bringing Poggenpohl to the Indian market. In 2015, the business was rebranded to Plusch, and is responsible for introducing several German luxury kitchen, wardrobe and furniture brands to India.

Their daughter Sukriti Sharma, who is a partner at Plusch, tells SMBStory, “Not many people believed in my parents’ dream because no one felt there was a market for luxury kitchens [in India]. But we pioneered the movement and brought brands like Poggenpohl, Eggersmann, and Beckermann for kitchens; Interluebke and Schmalenbach for wardrobes; and COR, Draenert, and Walter Knoll for furniture.”

She claims that Plusch is presently raking in an annual turnover of Rs 25 crore, and has 80 employees across India.

Enduring a difficult start

Originally from Kanpur, both Hamendra and Rati grew up in families that dealt in the manufacturing business. While Hamendra’s father was in the steel business, Rati’s father worked in the plywood industry.

To start SIS Imports, the couple got their initial investment from their families and took up a small kitchen design store in Mumbai on rent, and imported the kitchen displays and appliances for Rs 25 lakh.

At a time when luxury kitchens were almost unheard of in India, it was unsurprising that not everyone took kindly to the business.

“People would enter the showroom in Mumbai and hurl abuse at my parents for selling a kitchen as expensive as a house in the city,” says Sukriti.

The entrepreneurs also faced challenges in getting customs clearances for the imports. Educating potential premium buyers about the feasibility and advantages of using a luxury modular kitchen made in Germany was an uphill battle as well.

As a result, it took the business six months to make its first sale. Since then, there has been no looking back as word-of-mouth brought more customers to their doorstep, helping them grow.

Joining the family business

Sukriti became involved in the business when she was just 18-years-old.

“I was studying at King’s College in London, where I interned with Poggenpohl. During my summer holidays, I would work with my parents and assist in training employees on the shop floor,” she says.

After her graduation, she came back to India to formally join the business. Setting up a showroom in Hyderabad, she spearheaded the rebranding of the organisation from SIS Imports to Plusch.

According to her, rebranding the business to a German-sounding name complemented its drive to bring more German brands to India.

“Our clients were happy with the product quality of the luxury kitchens and started requesting us

Sea Island Luxury Interior Designer, VPI Design, Discusses the Art of Lighting

Press release content from Accesswire. The AP news staff was not involved in its creation.

Top Luxury Interior Designer, VPI Design by Dina Varner, explains how the selection of lighting design can serve as an artistic element to enhance the beauty of a room

SEA ISLAND, GA / ACCESSWIRE / October 1, 2020 / The choice of lighting in a space is often underestimated; lighting can be viewed as an artistic element rather than a practical accessory. Sea Island Luxury Interior Designer, VPI Design, chooses lighting to complement the features of the rooms’ design. Lighting creates an elegant style and enhances the architectural features of a room.

Lighting is a focal aesthetic feature where the goal of its composition and positioning is to highlight and enhance other features in the space. A careful and informed selection of lighting creates the difference between functionality and art. Luxurious lighting installations captivate viewers by the ambiance this creates.

Levels of lighting assist in creating and emphasizing the mood of a room. Using different forms of lighting such as chandeliers, sconces, and lamps creates a balance.

Ambient lighting is positioned in areas of the room to soften the mood and create a comforting and stylish feel for the space. The spaces where fixtures are installed are carefully and strategically positioned to attract the attention to artwork, sculptures, wallpaper designs, or intricate details of the room. Task lighting is artistically created in areas that require additional lighting to brighten the specific space. This layer of lighting is carefully balanced to allow efficiency as well as adding to the luxurious atmospheric feel of the space.

Creating a sufficient balance between luxurious and functional space relies primarily on the art of lighting. Fabricating a room or space that feels sophisticated and stylish requires the right combination of lighting elements. Therefore, lighting design is an artistic focal point that directs the viewer’s attention to other features in the space.

Sir, can I go and play in the mud kitchen? The fun-filled school with luxury flats attached

With luxurious modern bathrooms, spacious open-plan living rooms and panoramic views across the city, 333 Kingsland Road sounds like any other pricey block of high-end flats. Except that, where you might normally find sunloungers on a neatly landscaped terrace, this one has a “mud kitchen”. That’s because, rather than a private gym, cinema or other aspirational concept of the kind used to sell such developments, this London high-rise comes with the joyful chaos of a primary school attached to its base.

After five long months of no school, it is a nice surprise to hear the sound of (safely bubbled) playground games in full swing, and glimpse kids fooling around on the deck that hovers above the street. You might expect such a tower to have a swanky concierge at its base, but there instead you’ll find the school reception. Meanwhile, the roof of Hackney New Primary School is given over to planters for each class to grow their own food and get mucky with mud. It is a welcome reminder, in a world increasingly devoted to overpriced apartments for young professionals and foreign investors, that cities are for children, too.

The unlikely pairing was one of necessity. It would be nice to think that a primary school could just be built on such a site, across the road from its sister secondary school, no questions asked. But such is the capital’s superheated property market that the Education Funding Agency was forced to cough up £16m to acquire the site, meaning that a tower of 68 luxury flats had to be built to pay for the £23.5m school, delivered as a joint venture with the Benyon Estate and developer Thornsett.

To make matters more perverse, the site had long been home to a fire station, so the money was simply paid from one public body to another. And, because of the vastly inflated land value, the possibility for any “affordable” flats was ruled out by the viability assessment in the process. In the eyes of the planners, the presence of the school was deemed sufficient to tick the community benefit box (along with a £1.5m contribution to affordable housing off site).

At the time, Labour councillor James Peters wrote to Labour-controlled Hackney council warning that the plans were “a travesty, a mockery of the council’s policies and an insult to people throughout the borough”. Local MP Meg Hillier also wrote to then education secretary Justine Greening, urging her that this was “a golden opportunity to deliver both a school and homes for teachers”. But the viability assessment said no.

Against this compromised backdrop, the architects, Henley Halebrown, have done an admirable job of making the forced marriage seem like a natural pairing, as if a primary school at the base of a tower block was as normal as a Tesco or a Costa. Not only that, they have designed the tower in such a way that it feels less like a cruel imposition to be grudgingly tolerated because it makes

Newcastle bar Leila Lily’s wins international award for its luxury interior design

A Newcastle bar has won an international award less than a year since its opening.

Leila Lily’s in Grey Street impressed judges at the FESPA awards with its interior design and the likes of vibrant wallpapers – and the winning work was created by designer Beth Travers, originally from Sunderland.

The city centre restaurant-bar, which opened last September to reveal its floral new look, beat worldwide competition to win a new category at the international awards ceremony called printeriors, which celebrates innovative use of printed materials and design in interiors.

The work by Beth, who now runs her company, BOBO 1325, from Manchester, secured first place over entrants from as far afield as India and Italy.

FESPA – now known as the acronymn, which originally stood for Federation of European Screen Printers Association – is a global group representing the screenprinting and digital printing industry.

Its award judges described Beth’s work as “a stunning example which demonstrated creative use of digital technologies to create luxury interior decoration”.

Beth said: “The awards were originally supposed to be held in Madrid and I had tickets to go and then because of Covid-19 it had be held remotely.

“But the fact that I managed to win made up for the fact we had to ‘attend’ a virtual ceremony.”

She added: “I am so proud of the award, particularly because I am originally from the North East so it’s really special that I won it for my work on a project from there.

“Leila Lily’s is an incredible venue and it was amazing to be a part of it.”

Atul Malhotra, operations director of The Malhotra Group PLC which owns Leila Lily’s and who came up with the original concept for the venue he names after his daughter, said: “We know that Leila Lily’s is something special and it’s fantastic that this has been recognised internationally.”

He said that Beth “did a fantastic job” and is now currently working again with the company at both The Three Mile Inn in Gosforth and on refurbishment plans for Osborne’s bar in Jesmond.

At a time the hospitality industry is struggling to recover from the effects of the pandemic, the award is another piece of good news for Leila Lily’s which was awarded an AA rosette for its food just before lockdown.

Savant Brings Circadian Lighting to Robern Luxury Bathroom Furnishings

There may be no better place for human-centric lighting solutions than in the bathroom to help consumers face the day. So it makes sense that Savant has partnered with Robern, a division of Kohler that manufactures luxury furnishings for bathrooms, to bring a circadian rhythm wellness lighting solution to its products.

Savant’s circadian lighting functionality will pair with the tunable white LED lighting available in Robern’s elegant cabinetry, vanities and mirrors, with the goal of making a healthier lifestyle available in more places throughout the home.  

Founded in 1968, all Robern products are designed and manufactured in the company’s Bristol, Pa., facility. Robern, which became part of Kohler in 1995, has been a resource for designers, architects and consumers seeking modern, highly personalized cabinetry, vanities and mirrors for over 50 years. Select Robern solutions are available with tunable white LED lighting along with the convenience of night lights, mirror defoggers, USB chargers and concealed electrical outlets.

Robern furnishings with tunable white LED lighting integrate with Savant Daylight Mode, the 24-hour circadian cycle that is configurable inside of the Savant Pro App. Daylight Mode allows for time-of-day settings of kelvin temperature as well as lighting intensity shifts that all happen seamlessly throughout the progression of each day.

Daylight Mode can be personalized for the individual home, providing homeowners with the ability to adjust their lights dynamically in a way that promotes wellness throughout the home.

Savant Automation, SurgeX Power Anchor Smart Yacht Install

Robern’s tunable white solutions combined with Savant lighting scenes ensure accurate illumination to accommodate every skin tone. Clients will prep and look their best for every occasion with precise vanity lighting that effectively mimics any environment—from a virtual board meeting to a romantic evening for two.     

“Savant’s partnership with Robern presents integrators an opportunity to offer their clients a highly personalized lighting experience for bathrooms and bedrooms while creating new specifier relationships within the National Kitchen + Bath Association,” explains Nick Meloni, business development, environmental products at Savant. “Savant integrators will be able to purchase lighted medicine cabinets and mirrors in hundreds of style options directly from the Savant Store in early October, 2020.”

In the future, Savant will be working to install and showcase the TrueImage lighting control app at key brick and mortar retailers for Robern products in the U.S., enabling them to properly demonstrate the tunable white lighting concept to consumers. Savant will also support this initiative by teaching select Robern retailers how to sell lighting as part of overall wellness.
