Naturally nature

Wood is the key to creating a bathroom oasis that seamlessly blends outside with in.

Picture a bathroom oasis that seamlessly blends outside with in, creating a calming and beautiful statement in the home. Traditionally avoided in wet environments, wood now abounds in bathrooms and is the key to this recent trend.

Consider using timber-look or stone-effect tiles for the bath surround and a more spacious shower. Keep the shape of tapware clean and simple, while recreating the power of the outdoors with oversized dumper showerheads and multiple jets.

American oak is a stunning choice for vanities and cabinetry, while cork – which comes in a variety of textures – is also emerging as a popular choice. Allowing an abundance of natural light will complete any bathroom sanctuary.
