Neutral pastel palettes, origami accents, natural elements and metallic highlights are key to acheiving the sensual home sauna or spa feel at home. With a calm considered aesthetic and seductive simplicity, you can transform your bathroom into a sensory space that oozes relaxation and serenity.
We show you how to bring your bathroom to life with our top tips on creating a luxury, hotel bathroom at home.
Create a sensory space

Patterned floor tiles celebrating the latest delicate colours and striking motifs will offset the simple lines of this spa-bathroom. Double sinks displayed on a concrete plinth, a glorious roll top bath and freestanding walk-in double shower add the ultimate bathing experience.
Delicate shades of pink and grey, luxurious accessories and scented diffusers complement the hard lines of the furniture to bring this scheme right up-to-date.
Introduce the twin basin trend

Twin basins create a satisfyingly symmetrical effect in bathrooms with a contemporary style by fusing hard lines and soft curvatures. Doubling up on wash basins also helps to bring a sense of calm during the chaos of hectic daily family routines.
Transform your bathroom into a relaxing retreat

Recreate the peaceful, serenity of a hotel spa by placing candles that give off sweet aromas and radiant warmth around an elegant freestanding bath tub. Soft, fresh linen towels sprawled across spa-style seating will emulate the retreat experience.
Introduce origami accents, neutral pastel palettes, grey floor and white wall tiles to your bathroom's interior scheme for an ultra-modern take on the hotel-spa look.
Consider practical wall-mounted accessories
Nothing says luxury like a sleek, sophisticated bathroom design and that encompasses innovative technology. Wall-mounted radiators are perfectly practical for storing and drying towels which means you can dry yourself off with a cosy stretch of warm linen after a relaxing soak.
Add natural elements

Get that refreshed, rejuvenated feeling from spa day experiences by introducing natural elements such as rustic hanging chairs and wooden plinths to prop up pampering accessories and products.
Incorporate wood, stone and glass materials into your bathroom scheme to enchance the natural look, which is used in spas to give off a calming energy that replicates the sensation of being near a tranquil waterfall.
