- Create wow factor with high impact patterned tiles on the floor.
- Position a black sculptural freestanding bath-tub below the window, so it’s bathed in natural light. A good tip is to use opaque glass louvres which still allows in light while maintaining privacy.
- To enhance the sense of space lay white rectangular tiles vertically up the wall.
- Define the vanity area and introduce texture with a dramatic VJ timber wall painted in Dulux Monument.
- Continue the black theme through with tapware, lighting and switches which recede visually into the wall.
- Introduce warmth and contrast with a floating timber vanity and shelving, which take up minimal space, allowing the floor to remain the star.
- Finish with a round mirror which helps bounce light around the room.
