The luxury hotel experience: how to design an ultra-modern bathroom

800 533 Hamish Kilburn

Regardless of their location, the world’s finest hotel bathrooms are designed to evoke a sensory experience. Moosa Adam investigates how hoteliers can simply create an ultra-modern bathroom that lives up to the growing consumer demands of guests checking in…

Guests checking in to a luxury hotel often have a good idea of what they want from their stay. Crisp bed sheets, impeccable service and a relaxing bathroom fit for royalty tend to be at the top of the priority list. The design process behind a high-quality bathroom can be arduous, as hoteliers are constantly striving to improve their offering and hijack the latest trends in the name of complete customer satisfaction.

With the demands laid out, here’s how hoteliers can fulfil guests’ demands while also adhering to a stripped-back minimalist and luxurious style.

Create a sense of escape

Any guest at a top-level luxury hotel should feel as if they’ve escaped their daily life, especially in the bathroom. One way to create this getaway feeling is by introducing a few feature items into the space to conjure images of an exotic, tranquil destination which will serve as a remedy to the daily grind.

A few vibrant plants placed by the bath will transform any soak into an idyllic tropical dip, while the addition of incense sticks or premium fragrance diffusers will help to turn any bathroom dip into a sensory experience, worlds away from life outside.

Deliver quality

The key to a quintessentially minimalist luxury bathroom is to think first about functionality. Restricting luxury touches to items that have an essential purpose, such as bathroom taps, shower heads or towel rails instantly declutters the space. This makes the room a more inherently relaxing place to be.

There are all kinds of luxury touches that hotel owners can incorporate very easily, such as waterfall taps, rainfall showers and even technological upgrades like a bespoke lighting system or waterproof Bluetooth speaker. You’re free to introduce anything that elevates the bathroom experience into something that goes far beyond what the guest would typically experience at home – but without over-cluttering the space.

Get the decor right

The ultra-modern look is all dark, monochromatic hues, creating sleek bathroom opulence when paired with glass shower doors and recessed fittings – but an excess of sleek chrome and granite hues can leave the space feeling sterile. There should also be a healthy drop of character and charm in the room’s design to help guests feel comfortable and interested.

However, it’s important to choose the design around the hotel and not the other way around. If the rest of hotel is quirky and playful, then adding bespoke neon lighting spelling out a word that means something to the property could prevent any chance of the space looking and feeling overly stripped back.

Let the light in

Hotels falling on the budget side of the scale tend to have windowless bathrooms, and, while this is fine in principle, these can sometimes be less than luxurious. Hoteliers on the design stage should prioritise finding a source of natural light for their bathrooms, be it a frosted glass window or a skylight.

Natural light creates the illusion of additional space, and also guarantees that your minimalist luxe fixtures can truly pop during daylight hours. If this isn’t feasible within the budget or practically possible, instead consider a frosted glass door for the bathroom that’ll give the whole suite a greater feeling of flow.

Of course, every hotel design project is different – both in terms of budget and overall aim. Adding a dash of originality to a hotel bathroom will ensure it lives long in the memory of both reviewers and guests alike. Hotel owners should therefore let their creativity run wild and see where it takes them. We’re living in an era of unprecedented innovation in the hotel sector, and outside-the-box thinking is much more powerful than any soon-to-pass trend.

Versital faux marble shower

Opinion: Versital – ‘UK ‘faux’ marble market set for rapid growth’

1000 660 Daniel Fountain

Marble remains one of the key trends for 2017, and the desire for marble inspired interiors is stronger than ever. The pitfalls of real marble are a thing of the past thanks to the emerging market of ‘faux’ marble surfaces, meaning erosion and staining can be easily avoided.

Versital are specialists in the manufacturing of cultured marble, using stone resin to create a like-for-like finish in luxurious designs. Gemma Stockberger, Sales, Marketing & Development for Versital UK tells us why there is a growing demand for marble alternatives in the hospitality sector:

Faux, or cultured marble, is 100% waterproof, unlike the real thing
As beautiful as marble may look, its properties mean it is a problematic material to use when it comes to interior design. The finish and look of such surfaces can be easily tarnished when they come into contact with water. Versital’s unique formula is created from a composition of natural minerals and pigments combined with resin to give a hard wearing durable finish. It is also 100% waterproof and non-porous, making it an excellent alternative for bathroom, restaurant and bar surfaces. Versital surfaces are not compromised by contact with water, and will not suffer from watermarks or lime scale, ensuring surfaces that look as good as new for years to come.

Faux marble surfaces can be bespoke and hand-made to order
Versital surfaces are ideal for a number of applications including shower panels, shower trays, vanity tops, bar panels and table tops. The range of applications is endless, and this is because stone resin is very easy to cut and can be moulded to completely bespoke sizes, ready for installation. Created to individual specification, Versital can provide surfacing solutions for any project, regardless of shape and size.

Customise your ‘faux’ marble for a truly unique look
Whether it’s a traditional white finish you are looking for, or a more contemporary twist on a classic design, when opting for ‘faux’ marble, the exact look can be tailored to individual taste and requirements. Versital offers an extensive colour palette, with over 90 finishes to choose from. From classic white marbles such as ‘Arabesque’ to dusky pastels, moody greys, and on trend black marble, Versital creates the look of marble as never seen before.

Versital - Bar and Catering

Fuss-free cutting and scribing
When specifying these surfaces, it is worth considering that specialist masonry equipment is required, and cutting the material on site is often difficult and a messy job. In comparison, Versital’s cultured marble surfaces can be cut, scribed and installed quickly with minimal fuss and mess. What’s more, ordinary wood working tools can be used on site for ease of use and to ensure an accurate cut and a perfect fit.

Avoid complex drainage upheaval in bathroom renovations
Bathroom renovations can be costly and take time, especially when re-plumbing and relocating drainage is concerned. By opting for a bespoke shower tray from Versital, the need for this is eliminated, reducing costs, and ensuring the overall vision for a bathroom’s design can be achieved. Versital’s shower trays are manufactured to individual project specifications, and can be designed to fit the smallest and most awkwardly-shaped bathrooms, to those looking to create an oversized, statement shower enclosure or wetroom. Versital can even create shower trays that fit around corners and existing pipework, to ensure minimal interference to plumbing and help to keep costs down.

998 588 Daniel Fountain

Versital is delighted to have been specified by award-winning interior design practice, Collective Design, for its latest restaurant renovation project. The popular Central Oven & Shaker, a stylish pizzeria in Newcastle, recently underwent a thorough renovation throughout the premises.

Central Oven & Shaker is a popular eatery based in Neville Street, in the heart of Newcastle. It offers a selection of artisan pizzas and thirst-quenching cocktails, and seamlessly blends industrial inspired design and natural materials for a modern and vibrant setting. Versital’s faux marble finish surfaces perfectly complement the wooden accents used throughout the restaurant.

Central Oven Shaker NewcastleVersital’s bespoke surfaces were supplied for Central’s bar tops and front panels in a white faux marble finish. Versital products are designed to beautifully replicate the luxurious appearance and intricate veining of the natural material, while providing added benefits. Whilst natural marble is prone to erosion and staining, making it an impractical material for design, Versital has provided a solution that maintains the beauty of marble without any of the problems it is commonly associated with.

The brand’s 100% non-porous surfaces are completely bespoke, making them suitable for an array of applications in the domestic and commercial sectors. Versital offers an impressive range of over 90 colours with finishes in marble, granite, sparkle and high gloss.

Versital bespoke front panels“We specialise in designing commercial environments such as bars, restaurants and nightclubs, and so we were seeking a manufacturer with similar expertise and insight into the hospitality industry. Versital has impressive credentials, and the extensive colour and finish range of bespoke surfaces perfectly fitted our brief”, says Simon Mcilwraith, Director and Owner of Collective Design.

Gemma Stockberger, Head of Marketing and Sales for Versital UK adds “Versital surfaces are ideal for hospitality applications, because their durability and resistance to staining is a necessary pre-requisite for environments where there could be numerous food and drink spillages. The faux marble finish will continue to look as good as new for years to come, eliminating the fear of having to replace them later. We are delighted to collaborate with such a revered design practice, who has been awarded Interior Designer of the Year four times at the Northern Design Awards, and with the final look that has been achieved in Central Oven & Shaker.”

950 633 Daniel Fountain

Versital has been specified for new washrooms to be used by boat owners and their crew at Royal Quays Marina on the River Tyne at North Shields.

Versital supplied bespoke shower panels and splashbacks in bold and exciting colours for this striking waterside development. The new building is a stunning contemporary design which incorporates a café bar restaurant as well as the new washrooms.

Situated right on the dock edge the glazed frontage gives superb views for diners over the boats moored in the marina, whilst the interior accommodates modern new washrooms for use by marina users. Versital supplied wall panels and splashbacks in distinctive colours such as ‘Shiraz’, ‘Tangoed’, ‘Dorothy’, ‘Ice White’ and ‘Wenge’ to create 8 contemporary, spacious shower enclosures and washrooms that will serve the owners, family and crew of the 350 boats moored in the marina, as well as the many boats that visit this busy marina each year.

“Our unique surface material is 100% non-porous, making it a great solution for commercial projects such as this,” says Gemma Stockberger, Head of Marketing and Sales for Versital UK. “The Marina’s bathrooms will look as good as new for many, many years to come as no stains or exposure to water can compromise their appearance. What’s more, they will never need to grout a tile again.”

Versital’s non-porous, stone resin shower panels and splashbacks were made to measure for the Marina, allowing the design team to specify the exact shape, size. The design team picked the final colour selection from a range of 90 colours and finishes such as marble, granite, sparkle and high gloss.

BrightBlue Studio, the RIBA Registered Architects who designed the Marina Building, specified bespoke Versital shower panels to provide a low maintenance bathroom solution. Henry Amos, Director at BrightBlue Studio says, “the Royal Quays Marina team were interested in more dynamic ideas, colours and products to invigorate the spaces, allowing us to flex our creative muscles. We specified Versital as we knew they could deliver a bespoke, easy to maintain solution as well as exciting colour options and smooth, consistent delivery.”
