luxury hotel bathroom curated with COCOON products

Luxury hotels evoke feelings of calm, relaxation, and serenity… So, why wouldn’t designers want to capture the same essence in a home?

Designers and homeowners can take a series of steps to make a home feel like their favorite five-star hotel; these steps range from choosing fresh scents and soothing, neutral colors to donning chic shower sets and upgraded bathtubs.

Let’s talk about each of these steps a bit more.

Establish a Scent

Many luxury hotels brand themselves with scents. The same can go for homes. Bright notes can make a room smell fresh, clean, and luxurious. Common luxury-esque scent options include sandalwood, vanilla, cedar, lemon blossom, citrus, neroli, leather, and white tea.

Choose Neutral Tones

Neutral tones are soothing and gentle on the eye. In addition, neutral tones carry a timelessness, whereas colors are more likely to go out of style or overwhelm a space. Most luxury hotels will not include many pops of color, especially red or yellow, and instead opt for color palettes including bone, white, and beige. 

Keep Scale in Mind

Many designers have made the mistake of trying to squeeze too many pieces into a small space, or, on the other hand, leaving too much room in a large space. Understanding proper scale and proportions can make a home evoke the luxury feel of a hotel without feeling empty or overcrowded.

Consider a Minimalistic Approach

When guests step into a hotel, they aren’t met with the usual clutter of a home, a collection of patterned pieces, or an array of bright colors. Minimalist design can help a home feel elegant and purposeful.

Design the Bathroom into a Luxury Spa

Hotels are known for their spa-like bathrooms with plush towels, spacious showers, and luscious bathtubs. An elegant bathroom can completely transform a space.

Install a New Showerhead

Designer bath manufacturers typically create a variety of showerheads, such as rain showers, handheld, wall-mounted, and recessed ceiling rain showers.

Here are some of our favorites:

The COCOON PB SET23THERM

The John Pawson Complete Thermostatic Rain Shower Set

This set includes the stick model hand shower and the wall-mounted rain shower. This set comes in three finishes: brushed gold, brushed inox, and dark gray.

Consider Upgrading the Bath Tub

Installing a bathtub creates the opportunity to elevate a bathroom space. After all, a tub is one of the first elements that catch the eye and can make or break a bathroom design.

At Specialty Hardware and Plumbing, we enjoy the look of COCOON bathtubs. Why? COCOON tubs pair elegance and functionality with a design built to last a lifetime. 

Let’s take a look at some of our favorites.

The COCOON Atlantis Free-Standing Tub

Shown in the color “dust,” this tub is available in a variety of other finishes as well. These finishes include Earth, Pebble, and Shell. Learn more about the COCOON Atlantic Free-Standing Tub.

The COCOON Purist Free-Standing Bathtub With Pure Geometric and Smooth Details

Portrait of John Pawson with his COCOON collection, stone sink

John Pawson is a renowned British architectural designer known for his minimalist designs. Pawson—often hailed as the father of modern architectural minimalism—founded his firm in 1981. For nearly forty years, Pawson has built a successful career dedicated to less.

Pawson’s projects range from the Cistercian monastery, the New York flagship store for Calvin Klein and Jil Sander, sets for the Royal Opera House, and hotels for Ian Schrager.

Read on to learn more about John Pawson’s work and how to bring a touch of his talent into your modern minimalist designs.

But first, let’s review the meaning of minimalist interior design.

What is Minimalist Interior Design?

The fundamentals of minimalist interior design involve creating a simple space with clean lines, functional furniture, and a monochromatic color palette. When constructing these concepts, designers will focus on shape, texture, and color. Further, designers will often opt for a space with lots of light and an open floor plan.

Minimalism avoids elements such as clutter, highly patterned furnishings, and detailed accessories.

Why John Pawson Was Drawn to Minimalism

John Pawson was drawn to the sense of freedom and calm that minimalism evokes. The successful designer claims minimalist spaces help to calm his “untidy mind.” 

In an interview with A Collected Man, Pawson notes, “For me, the words that come to mind are… Clarity; the focus on what’s essential; a drive to make space. And what we design hopefully makes people feel good. It’s that physical feeling of having a space to move, to breathe; not being surrounded by stuff gives you a certain freedom.”

John Pawson’s Work

Pawson focuses on incorporating space, proportion, light, and materials. His body of work includes a broad range of scales and typologies. Pawson’s design portfolio includes sacred commissions, galleries, museums, and ballet sets. His most notable work, perhaps, includes the new Cistercian monastery in Bohemia and the Sackler Crossing across the lake at the Royal Botanic Gardens.

Throughout his career, Pawson has received many awards for his innovative work, such as RIBA awards for the Sackler Crossing at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, and the Frate Sole International Prize for Sacred Architecture for the new Cistercian monastery of Lady of Novy Dvur in Bohemia.

Since COCOON embodies a timeless, minimalist, and luxurious design, we suggest selecting fixtures that align with those same elements. 

Read on to how to elevate the bathroom space with fixtures that will complement your COCOON products without taking away from them. Let’s break it down, fixture by fixture.

Bathroom Faucets and Basin Mixers

Shower Fixtures

Designers have a few elements to consider in choosing the best shower sets for a space. For instance, designers should keep in mind any functional or technical plumbing details that may affect the choice of fixtures as well as any requests from the client. Additionally, designers should match the fit and finish.

Designer bath manufacturers typically create a variety of showerheads, such as rain showers, handheld, wall-mounted, and recessed ceiling rain showers.

COCOON offers a few different selections to choose from, including the Piet Boon Collection, John Pawson Collection, and the COCOON Lab – Mono rain shower head. They are all distinct and designed to be modular, water-saving, and timeless.

Let’s take a look at some options.

The COCOON PB SET23THERM: A Best-Seller That Never Fails to Impress

Designed by Piet Boon, these thermostatic shower fixtures are made from AISI 316L marine grade stainless steel with PVD colors of gunmetal black, raw copper, and brushed inox. The exterior parts include a hand shower, diverter 2 outputs, and a thermostatic (U.S. compliant) mixer.

With decades of experience, and meeting the high expectations of our clients across the country, SH+P can offer COCOON showerheads in gunmetal black and dark platinum matte to be similar and stay within the modern, minimal design style.

Bespoke bathroom designs combine luxury and functionality in customizable solutions. Bathrooms can significantly elevate a property. In fact, Zillow predicts an average bathroom remodel has a national average return on investment (ROI) of 72.7%.

Read on to learn more about bespoke bathroom designs and the advantages of this innovative form of bathroom design.

What is a Bespoke Bathroom?

A bespoke bathroom is the transformation of a vision into reality.  Bespoke bathroom designs are formed from a concept that considers the needs of the user without compromising the design.

Designing with this concept in mind allows for greater functionality and flexibility while maintaining an element of luxury in your space. 

Advantages of Bespoke Bathroom Designs

Concepts Can Meet Specific Needs of the Client

With bespoke bathrooms, designers can address needs such as: 

  • The bathroom needing to be child-friendly
  • The client wanting only or both a shower and bathtub
  • The bathroom being accessible to a client with special needs
  • Additional features, such as the newest technology
  • Addressing storage concerns

Designs Make the Most of the Space

Bespoke bathroom designs can fit any bathroom size, such as:

  • Small bathrooms
  • Large bathrooms
  • Family bathrooms
  • En-suite bathrooms

Many bathrooms do not function as well as they could because their design has not been customized. Through bespoke bathroom design, designers can utilize every inch of space in a bathroom of any size. 

Designs Can Fit Any Shape of Bathroom

Additionally, bespoke bathroom designs are an attractive option for those looking to customize a unique or unwieldy bathroom space. Bespoke bathroom designs help users make the most of their space in terms of both utility and style.

Concepts Can Be Created Around a Budget

Bespoke bathroom designs provide the flexibility to carefully select each feature of the space. Designers can decide on elements such as:

  • Materials
  • Color palette
  • Shower doors
  • Custom hinges
  • Shower mirrors
  • Soaking bathtubs
  • Sinks
  • Hardware
  • Rain showerheads
  • Bathroom tiles

Through this flexibility, designers can create a concept around the budget of their clients without compromising their vision. Further, designers have complete control over how to allocate the budget in the space. 

Custom Storage Solutions

If storage is a main requirement of the clients, designers can create customized storage solutions while maintaining the style of their bespoke bathroom design.
