Picture yourself in an oasis that seamlessly blends outside with in. Take in the raw beauty of timber finishing and breathe in the lush scent of abundant greenery. Walking into the shower feels like stepping into a cascading waterfall, while sinking into the bath could be likened to relaxing into a warm rock pool. Not only relaxing, natural bathroom is a timeless design choice.
Long avoided in wet environments, wood now abounds in bathrooms and is the key to this trend – albeit in a slightly lighter, more natural tone for 2018. American oak is a stunning choice for vanities and cabinetry, but the range of timber-appearance options is broad.
If you opt for a drop-in bath, consider using timber-look or stone-effect tiles for the surround. The more open the shower the better – and a higher ceiling will only emphasize that feeling of being unconstrained in nature. Keep the toilet simple, tucking it away into a recess if the dimensions of the room allow it.
