No matter the size of your bathroom, you deserve a retreat, a space to wash away your worries or refresh for the day ahead. If your bathrooms on the small size it’s the perfect opportunity to lean in to boldly patterned wallpapers or uniquely designed tiles. Or perhaps you have a larger bathroom and you’re able to create your own spa, with natural tones and a luxuriously large shower. Whatever the size of your space or the budget that you have we have some bathroom ideas that will make your 2022 morning routine that little bit more luxe.

Upcycling Vintage Furniture

It’s important in 2022 that we are making more planet friendly decisions when designing our homes, and our bathrooms are no exception. One way of adding a uniquely interesting piece to your bathroom whilst keeping sustainability in mind could be upcycling a sideboard or chest of drawers to create a vanity unit. Perhaps you already have a piece of furniture at home that’s in need of a second life, but if not we’re lucky enough to live close to some beautiful antique furniture shops like The Swan at Tetsworth, as well as charity shops and recycling centres. Once you’ve chosen your piece Coulon Stone can help create and install a bespoke vanity top and sink, either from a natural or manmade stone picked out by you. With a stone top it will be easy to clean and maintain and using a piece of furniture provides ample storage.

White Marble Open Showers

Open showers are gaining popularity in people’s homes. They maximise space in smaller shower rooms or create a spa like feel in bigger bathrooms. Using a white marble creates a classic, refined look, whilst cleaning and maintaining is fuss-free. For a budget friendly option we recommend man-made composite stones, many of which come in marble style designs like the one photographed.

Statement Stone

As mentioned above it can be fun to play with bold patterns and colours in our bathrooms, particularly if you have a small space. If you’re looking for something more practical than wallpaper for your bathroom space, than a statement stone could be just what you need. A glassy onyx in green and pink, or a highly veined granite in gold and black perfectly blends practicality with unique design.
