A modern luxury bathroom can elevate a home and inspire relaxation and comfort for the owner. Designers may consider the following elements to transform a bathroom space from ordinary to luxurious. Let’s take a look at five of these elements.
1. Statement Mirrors
Mirrors can be more than just a functional afterthought in design. A luxury bathroom demands a large, bold mirror that will serve as a focal point above the vanity or tub.
Rectangle Mirrors Are a Classic Option
The BEL-3642, shown above, is made from premium materials. This electric lighted mirror offers great function and value for a home. This fixture is part of Electric Mirror’s Bella Collection, so make sure to check out other fixtures to accessorize your room.
Round Mirrors Offer a Chic Touch
Designers may also opt for round mirrors to complete the luxury bathroom. We enjoy the look of the Electric Mirror Eternity 36” Round Mirror. The ETE-36 is made of premium materials and pairs with the Electric Mirror’s Eternity Collection.
2. Elegant Vanities
Vanities are one of the most important features for a designer to get right in a luxury bathroom. Vanities serve several functions in a bathroom: hide plumbing, provide storage, as well as offer a practical space for users to prepare for their day.
At Specialty Hardware + Plumbing, we tend to gravitate towards vanities that complement the other features without taking away from the rest of the space. For instance, the Piet Boon COCOON Bespoke Cabinet, as shown above.
Or, the PB Basin 180, for Those Who Prefer More Space
The COCOON washbasin designed by Piet Boon is available in a range of finishes and provides users with more space without overwhelming the bathroom.
3. Free-Standing Tub
A free-standing tub can make a bathroom feel like a spa experience. No luxury bathroom is complete without the perfect tub. Let’s take a look at some options.
For a Timeless Look: The COCOON Free-Standing Bathtub
The Free Standing Soaking Tub by COCOON is made from premium materials and offers great function and value for a luxury home. The Concrete-05 finish is shown above, but the finishes Concrete 01-10 are also available, ranging from lighter to darker shades.
For a Darker Look, The JP Bath
We adore the Natural Stone Free Standing Soaking Tub from the John Pawson COCOON Collection. The tub, shown in Pietra Griggio above, is available in many shades, such as natural sand, for those who may love the tub but prefer a lighter finish.
4. Shower Hardware
Designers have numerous factors to consider when selecting shower fixtures for a luxury bathroom. Luckily, there is no shortage of options, ranging from handheld to wall-mounted to recessed ceiling rain showers.
For a Sleek Look: The COCOON PB SET23THERM
This best-seller was designed by Piet Boon for COCOON. The COCOON PB SET23THERM 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.
Prefer a Rainshower? Consider the John Pawson Complete Thermostatic Rain Shower Set
This set includes a stick model hand shower in addition to the wall-mounted rain shower. The photo above shows the set in brushed Inox, but the finishes of brushed gold and steel are also available.
5. Elevated Fixtures
From bath fillers to drains to basin mixers, the details can make a significant difference in the design of a luxury bathroom. We recommend taking the time to find elevated fixtures that complement each other while allowing attention to the eye-catching pieces in the space: the vanities, tubs, and showers, for example. We’ll show off a few of our favorite elevated fixtures.
One of Our Timeless Go-To’s: The COCOON John Pawson Floor Mounted Bath Filler
You may have already spotted this piece paired above with the JP Bath. From the award-winning John Pawson by COCOON Collection, this piece combines elegance and minimalism.
The Details Make the Difference with the COCOON Pop-Up Waste Drain/Bath Drain
Available in 12 finishes, this drain allows the focus to remain on the main attention: that beautiful tub.
