Today’s bathroom doesn’t need to be packed with flashy finishes, glossy furniture and ornate accessories to be deemed luxurious. In fact, there is a quieter, more sophisticated design making its way inside our homes which takes a more natural and pared-back approach but is still high on the style radar. Yes, ‘natural bathrooms’ is all about creating a spa-like ambience with the right choice of natural materials, a muted colour palette and clear, uncomplicated design, with a little sprinkling of hi-tech gadgetry thrown in for good measure, so that you will be able to relax and unwind at the end of a busy day. Here are some of our favourite picks.
The Finesse washstand in solid oak is topped with two Nova basins and a worktop in Galala marble, £2,694. The cabinet costs £1,074 and the oak freestanding cabinets, £762 each. All from Stonearth.
The St Ives Hepworth glazed tiles are made from porcelain but look like real wood. Available in five natural shades, they are £59.90 per sq m, from Fired Earth.
