A bathroom is not just a place for personal hygiene, it can also serve as an area to indulge the senses. Here are a selection of bathrooms that impressed the team at SA Home Owner with their unique design features and top quality craftsmanship.

1. Bold and bright

Colour matching is on-trend at the moment and the Napoli bath from Victoria + Albert Baths beautifully accentuates this bathroom with elegance and comfort. In addition to the six standard colour finishes available, V+A Baths now offers a spectrum of 194 RAL colours in both gloss and matt finishes.

3. Superbly stylish

‘‘Simple luxury” is how these owners would describe their home, and it is without a doubt nothing short of luxurious. When they embarked on the process of renovating the property, they knew that they wanted a modern farm- style home with big, open living spaces and a natural feel.

6. Gracious living

A fully functional and beautiful bathroom can greatly improve a home’s overall appeal and value. Carné Interiors ensured that every detail for the bathroom remodel was on point.

8. Shades of neutral

A-Z Design Boutique‘s client wanted to be involved in the planning of this bathroom, saying she wanted to feel like she was in the best bathroom in the world. To make this happen, A-Z decided to elevate the bath platform, adding beautiful LED strip lights for extra effect. The company used a dramatic tile accompanied with gold fittings to accentuate the colour in the tile, creating a space that would be talked about for years to come. You can’t not feel like a million dollars when you’re in this space.

9. Parisian chic

As a whole, the décor is a tranquil monochrome, with pops of colour coming through in the whispers of blues, pinks, oysters, greys and shades of white. “I wanted to create a calming, Parisian chic vibe with both modern and vintage elements,” the owner says.

10. Contemporary cool

For the interiors, this aesthetic is carried throughout. “Understated luxury with minimal styling. You will see a strong presence of cladding on some of the walls. In the main bathroom, we’ve opted for a blend of cladding, marble, granite and Caesarstone,” says the owner.
