A whirlpool or freestanding bath are perfect items to include and will become the focal point of the bathroom, make sure that the bath is large and deep enough to provide you with a relaxing and comfortable soak.

Alternatively a walk-in shower enclosure is a good option if you don’t want the hassle of installing a true wet-room, combine with a low profile shower tray for a streamlined look. Walk-in showers provide you with a spacious showering area and are perfect for a hotel-spa styled bathroom. Make sure you opt for a large rainfall style shower head for a refreshing shower to complete the spa-like look.
The right style of bathroom furniture makes a huge difference in creating that hotel-spa look and ensures your bathroom is kept free from clutter.

Choose a compact shower bath to save on floor space and opt for one with whirlpool jets. By creating a cosy, inviting space in a small bathroom you can turn it into a tranquil and relaxing haven.
