Following our recent piece on Creating a Spa Inspired Bathroom, today we’re taking a look at designing your bathroom around a whole different theme: Hotel Luxury – another emerging trend in the world of bathroom design.

Of course, this is partially due to the fact that we now have readily available and affordable access to cost effective materials with the introduction of more realistic”look-alike” products such as marble inspired surfaces for example.
Although a beautiful and luxurious material, marble is well known for its sensitivity. The surface is highly prone to scratches, stains and cracks while also requiring ongoing maintenance and sealing to ensure its longevity.
Being a highly porous stone, marble can be stained from liquids and acids which can in time dull the surface. With careful use and regular maintenance however, you are able to keep your marble tops looking as new!
