Your bathroom is incomplete without a countertop basin, and it need not be a standard-looking one…so always be open to experimentation. Architects from Zero Degree Design, Studio Wodehouse and Studio Ruh share unique ways to enhance the look of your private havens…

IDEA 1: Go Big

The idea behind the design of this bathroom was to keep the space simple, subtle and sophisticated with extensive use of various textures, clean lines and a pop of colour in every room. We got the leverage to work with bold colour schemes and we chose to work with neutral wall tiles. The basin is a taller and deeper than most, adding an element of intrigue and uniqueness to the room.


IDEA 2: Add Some Colour

If you’re using colour, then use the same one for the entire room, like a neutral tone instead of simply an accent colour. Pick natural materials rich in texture like cane, stone, marble, tiles, wood to enhance the space – these add more depth to the sharp colour of the room. The peacock blue paint for this space – also used on the basins and doors to maintain a sense of cohesiveness – has been layered with cane and wood textures. The white and yellow tiles and black sanitary accents tie the whole look together. 


IDEA 3: Keep It Classic

For this space, we combined marble with a custom designed MDF panelling in the dry area, that forms the backdrop for the brass detailed mirror and delicate shelving unit. The stunning brushed bronze fittings match the custom brass mirror shelving and also the slender lights from white teak that float so delicately on both sides of the mirror. The Veil vessel, with its stand-out shape and neutral colour neatly fits in to the space, making for a classic and elegant addition to the bathroom.
