Design Digest: Turning Bathrooms into Sanctuaries

Over the years, the bathroom has become synonymous with a sanctuary – a place to rest, relax, and indulge in self-care. It is the sole space in the house where you can steal some quiet time away from the hustle and bustle of busier rooms.

Because of this, modern bathrooms have evolved. More than just being functional, they are now carefully designed to become beautiful, tranquil spaces with a soothing ambience. If you’re looking for inspiration, here are gorgeous examples that prove bathrooms can be as aesthetically pleasing as the rest of your home.

White Luxe

An all-white bathroom can look clinical, but in this coastal-inspired space by White Sands, the natural light bouncing off the walls make the space warm and inviting. Whites and light greys are paired for an elegant look, while the clever placement of the mirrors and double vanity creates the feeling of abundant space for unwinding and relaxing. Hardware accents like the Armac Martin Queslett Furniture Knob in a polished nickel plate finish provide a subtle design statement and blend effortlessly with the fixtures and lighting.

Modern Tudor

The old-world, romantic appeal of the Tudor aesthetic gets a contemporary touch in this bathroom by JKath Design Build + Reinvent. Owner and designer Katie Kath opted for a statement black bath, while ensuring the heavy hue does not overwhelm the space by adding matching elements like the window and mirror. Stone tiles for the floor and shower walls provide texture, while a wicker basket and the custom vanity soften the ensemble. The handpicked brass finishes – Armac Martin’s Cotswold Furniture Knob in Satin Brass – stand out against the wood for that modern yet lived-in look. All these details make for a truly covetable setup for indulgence and self-care.

Moroccan Flair

Stepping into this en-suite by designer Emily Pueringer gives the feel of a Moroccan spa. Gorgeous hand-brushed tiles from Tabarka Studio make an instant statement, with the rich burnt sugar hexagon floor tile adding impact. A symmetrical double vanity with touches of wood provides warmth, while the sleek brass accessories – wall lights, mirrors, and Armac Martin’s Latchford Furniture Knob – offer a lovely contrast to the rustic decor. It achieves that sophisticated bohemian feel and the overall look makes this bathroom a true retreat for escaping and loosening up after a long day.

Timeless Grandeur

This magnificent bathroom by Randi Garrett mixes modern and French elements to evoke a timeless feel. The elegant white and gold vanity impresses with Armac Martin’s Latchford Furniture Knob in a polished brass unlacquered finish, while the shower ceiling, walls, and bathroom floor are set with Calacatta marble to make the interiors look truly resplendent. This exquisite detailing is reminiscent of a luxury hotel bathroom, perfect for lavishing and pampering in self-care.

Effortlessly Chic

Matt black accents create a sleek, stylish bathroom with an elegant, contemporary touch. In this bathroom by Brucks & Co, the natural tone of the wooden cabinets and the harmonious use of symmetry induce a sense of balance and calm. Armac Martin’s Kingsheath Furniture T-Bar cabinet knobs, the matt black taps, and the sleek marble top vanity perfectly contrast the white walls, achieving an effortlessly chic design aesthetic.
