Being one of the smallest rooms in the house, homeowners often neglects the bathroom, placing more emphasis on decorating other parts of the house instead. However, more time is actually spent in the bathroom than we would like to admit, with statistics showing that most people spend, on average, around 20 to 30 minutes daily in their bathrooms.


Be it getting ready for a day out or unwinding after a long day of work, bathrooms are increasingly seen as a space for relaxation and enjoyment. As a result, creating a cozy yet glamorous oasis within its confines has become an increasingly important task for both homeowners and designers.


Check out the following tips from British brand Victoria + Albert that will help transform your bathroom into an opulent haven of relaxation.


Tip #1: Coordinating Finishes


Victoria + Albert’s ionian freestanding bath and Mandello 114 vanity


One of the most effective ways to create a luxurious space is to coordinate the furnishing to a curated colour scheme for a uniformed, sleek look. In this design by

Victoria + Albert, less is more as the matching monochromatic scheme between the Mandello 114 vanities and Victoria + Albert’s ionian bath exudes timeless elegance while also looking contemporary and chic.

If you are looking for a more lavish look, match your chandelier to your tapware to add an instant touch of glamour to the space. Contrasted against the simple tiling and elegant black and gold fixtures, the Victoria + Albert Amiata bath takes centre stage in this bathroom design by Olivia Carswell.

Tip #2: Opt for a freestanding bath

Opulence fit for a royal. Opting for a freestanding bath lends an instant sense of indulgence and grandeur to a space. Contrary to popular belief, a freestanding bath is the perfect way to bring in more light and space in the bathroom. Against the muted soft greys and whites, the Victoria + Albert Toulouse bath offers a sense of extravagance and indulgence in this bathroom design by Susan Glick.


With more choices than ever before, from modern, compact baths to traditional, clawfoot bath, there’s a Victoria + Albert bath to suit your shape and style. Crafted from QUARRYCAST®, a Volcanic Limestone™ composite that is naturally white, Victoria + Albert baths are easy-to-clean to offer an additional peace of mind.

Tip #3: Multi-purpose spaces

Creating a luxury environment within a small space can be a challenging task. When space is at a premium, go with a bathroom-cum-dressing room to get the best of both worlds. Incorporating a freestanding bath in your walk-in wardrobe not only creates a beautiful focal point in the room, it also allows you to maximise on storage space with floor-to-ceiling cabinets.


Surrounded by elegant storage and dressers, the Victoria + Albert Amalfi bath takes centre stage in this bathroom design by Tea2 Architects. To create a more cohesive look, build the basin into a dresser-style unit so to match the finishing of the surround cabinets.

Tip #4: Don’t forget storage


Victoria + Albert’s Lario 100 vanity


As a space to unwind and rejuvenate, a cluttered and overcrowded bathroom is far from being a relaxing space. Often overlooked, storage space plays an instrumental role in creating the feel of luxury and glamour. Opt for built-in storage such as Victoria + Albert’s Lario 100 vanity, which is crafted from solid beech and cherry timber. Sleek and elegant, this vanity combines the best of traditional and modern lines for a contemporary yet timeless look.

  • Volcanic Limestone™ is Victoria + Albert’s propriety name for the very special white rock that is perfect for making baths and basins.
    • This is formed when the elemental forces associated with liquid magma acts upon surrounding soft, chalky limestone. The immense heat and pressure from the magma transforms the neighbouring rock into a new material made up of incredibly hard strands.
    • Victoria + Albert blends milled Volcanic Limestone™ with high quality resins to bind these strands into a complex 3D matrix.
    • The finished result is QUARRYCAST® - a world class composite with an exceptional strength to weight ratio.
    • QUARRYCAST® is a stone-rich alternative to both cast iron and acrylic. It is 100% naturally white, naturally scratch resistant and hand finished.
    • The material has passed a 5,000kg mass test, so Victoria + Albert’s baths won’t creak or flex.
