Why not be inspired to create a glamorous bathing setting this year? Sarah Hammill looks at four different styles befitting of a fabulous look for any family bathroom
Add a real feeling of grandeur within the bathroom with a statement tub. A hand-crafted vintage tub gives a timeless quality, while an increased depth to the design provides the bather with a highly comforting experience.
Mike Eltham, design team leader at Constable Bathrooms, comments: ‘The Aurora Bath is one of my personal favourites as, for me, it typifies what we do here at Constable Bathrooms.
When done correctly, adding a completely traditional look appliance can really transform the standard 21st century bathroom into the most luxurious room in the house. The Aurora is no exception, it’s all about making a statement in the bathroom and a centrepiece bath like the Aurora is the perfect option to do so.
A luxury bathroom should be entirely your own creation, so we encourage customisation wherever possible and the Aurora is extensively customisable. It’s one of our truly bespoke, luxury items.’

Although they are often thought to be of traditional design, free-standing tubs are evolving and taking on a modern feel too.
Free-standing tubs are practical space savers and can provide a real spa-like feeling at home. Positioned in the centre of the room or even beneath a window for natural lighting, it’s guaranteed to be the focal point of your bathroom.
Julia Smith, head of marketing at Better Bathrooms, comments: ‘Our Henrietta free-standing bath is certain to be an eye-catching spotlight feature in your bathroom. Its minimalistic design will complement any style décor and looks perfect coupled with a modern, free-standing tap to complete the look.
The boldly curved shape of the tub allows you to submerge yourself in to a truly tranquil soak and ensures winding down at the end of the day is done in the best possible better way.’

Choosing the right shower for your home is not always straight-forward, but can be the difference between a disappointing drizzle and a sensual jet experience.
Before choosing the ultimate design, always take into account important factors that could affect your decision such as space within the bathroom, plumbing within the home and what features and controls your shower requires to provide the optimum balance between luxury and practicality.
Steve Bones, director of PG Bones, comments: ‘The Sail Shower Control is a modern piece that can be incorporated into any bath or wet room to give it a stylish and modern edge that will transform any bathroom.
Whether it’s a walk in shower cubicle or placed over the bath, the control is both sleek, with its clean lines and minimalistic design, and versatile enough to suit all needs.’

Embrace the future of water closets with high-tech washlets. Washlets, or in simpler terms an electric bidet, are a trademark product of Japan, providing every lavatory user with warm, cleansing sprays from the toilet seats that guarantee a hygienic visit every time.
Paul Newman, director of Paul Newman interiors, comments:
‘The washlet is ideal for a busy family. Depending on the product features, the heated seat provides a comforting experience and the sensors can relieve you of the need to use your hands for things such as opening and closing the lid. The deodoriser reduces unwanted odours and the dryer function greatly reduces the need to use toilet paper. The pre-mist function prevents unwanted bacteria gathering in the bowl, making it a hygienic option for every household.’
