If you're feeling brave, playing with pattern in a bathroom can look exquisite. Wallpapering a bathroom might intitially sound old-fashioned but it's made a comeback in a big way. Clash patterns in a bathroom by choosing different wallpaper and tiles but keep them in the same colour palette to avoid it looking too busy.

Designing a dark bathroom isn't for everyone but it's a total myth that dark colours make a space look smaller. Even if you're working with a smaller area, don't be afraid to opt for darker features such as black wall and floor coverings. You can always lighten things up by choosing lighter bathroom furniture and accessories.

Take your taps into consideration when designing your statement bathroom and think how they will complement or contrast with the rest of your bathroom scheme. We love the idea of having a bold colour on the walls and contrasting this with harsh black taps and light fittings.
