It should come as no surprise but architects love a bit of Pinterest and Instagram surfing, just as much as the rest of us - if not more! We love to see how homeowners are changing up their spaces and new design ideas put into play. So lets put our internet browsing to good use and share with you our finds.

If you’re looking to spice up your bathroom and aren’t afraid to step outside of the box, here are some design choices you might just be tempted to explore…

There’s a lot at work in this swish bathroom. The blend of white against those lovely charcoal shades adds depth to the space. However, there’s also a natural touch too, thanks to the light pine. Altogether, it’s a room that is both rustic and modern at the same time.

Not to mention, we love the way they’ve squeezed in both a standing shower and a roomy bath. The glass screen helping to keep the space light and open. Gorgeous!

Now for a pop of colour and what a difference just one bright item makes. If you gutted this bathroom, you would find nothing but those marble white walls and the black and white tiles. However, this provides the perfect backdrop to that eye-popping blue dresser, which is now the superstar of this bathroom.

From an architectural perspective, these homeowners have really put their loft to good work. The use of using glass to break the room up gives the illusion of there being more space than there really is and we’re sure any couple would be delighted with those double sinks.

It’s hard to pinpoint what we love more…

Could it be those pendant lights?
The floor-to-ceiling window?
The pink tiles?
The patterned flooring?

Oh, we just can’t decide. However, we do applaud this homeowner for being brave enough to have clear glass on both their shower screen and that impressive window - very body confident!

This bathroom may be more understated but it’s still a beauty and goes to show what a difference good tiling can make. The pink flooring really adds a lot of character into this little space, with the designer having cleverly packed a lot into the room. The built-in shower and recessed shelves get the whole room working to it’s fullest potential!

Slink white bathrooms are certainly in trend but let’s not forget their rustic counterparts. If you’re a fan of country homes, cottage hideaways, or pretending you live in a period drama, these charming design touches might be for you. And, of course, who can ignore that bathtub! Probably the closest you’ll get to feeling like you’re bathing in an enormous teacup.

The natural look can be taken even further, especially if you’re willing to say goodbye to straight lines. Everything in this room is soft, naturally textured, and almost feels handmade. However, that’s not to say it’s any less luxurious than other designs. We can only imagine how satisfying it must be to step out of that large shower room and onto the cool, smooth stone floor.

If only there was a way to combine the relaxation of a bath with the opulent comfort of those old, period-drama-style poster beds, surrounded by a curtain... Well, now there is! As this bath and shower are the focal point of the room, we love how much drama they’ve added to it. Gold detailing, marble effect, and those billowing curtains. We’d feel like the Earl of Lancaster would bath here.

Now back to something a little more au natural.

The raised timber flooring provides a seamless way for this room to incorporate a wet room, allowing these homeowners to splash around to their heart’s content. Of course, with the cool tone tiles and calming black accents, this feels like a bathroom more suited to meditation than splish, splashing.

Welcome to the resurgence of concrete! This material had its moment during the brutalist design movement, then fell out of favour. Now it’s back but working in a much softer way than it was before. You can see in this bathroom that it’s soft grey tones give a calming effect, rather than feeling domineering. If you wish to use the material in your home, you can either add in concrete effect tiling or use it within the construction of your space - an option for both extensions and new builds.

Again, you don’t need a lot of space to get a gorgeous bathroom - as this little cottage addition proves!

Not only have the manage to add in a walk-in shower, but they’ve also found space for a standing bathtub. The wooden accents give the space a subtle beachy theme, alongside the more modern touches of those black tiles and small hexagon tiles.
