* Nat­u­ral fin­ishes such as stone are peren­ni­ally pop­u­lar for bath­rooms, as they’re hard-wear­ing with a sense of na­ture that pro­motes well-be­ing. The lat­est trends have a glam­our boost with char­ac­ter stones such as veined mar­ble, Por­tuguese pink mar­ble and in­tri­cate pat­terns in agate.

* We love a bit of bling in the bath­room. An an­tique mir­ror, a stand­out van­ity unit and gold brass­ware will evoke Thir­ties luxe with a dash of deca­dence.

* It’s all about bring­ing a bit of per­son­al­ity to the space and one of the eas­i­est ways is to in­tro­duce a stun­ning el­e­ment in a bold colour. This could be a shower tray, a tiled splash­back or a pop of mod­ern vinyl on the floor.

* If colour isn’t your thing, em­brace the trend for mono­chrome, but do it with oomph. Stripes, pat­terns and tex­ture add an ex­tra di­men­sion to black and white.

* Spa style re­mains the an­ti­dote to mod­ern-day stresses. ‘Warm wood pan­elling, plants, nat­u­ral bath salts and flo­rals­cented can­dles cre­ate a Zen-like at­mos­phere,’ says Sarah Har­ris, brand man­ager at Zuc­chetti.kos.
