    Create the glamorous hotel bathroom look at home

    Top-end hotels have mastered the art of luxury, and it shows in every detail. Even the bathroom is often more relaxing than any room in your busy home. Fortunately, recreating the soothing yet decadent atmosphere at home isn’t as hard – or as expensive – as you might think. The key is choosing good quality materials and paying attention to the fine details.

    Get expert help selecting materials

    You don’t have to break the bank to get high-quality pieces. At Surrey Marble and Granite, we source stone from around the world and we know a secret top hotels use: stones have fashions, just as clothes do. Rather than splash out on big designer names, a hotel chain installing a thousand marble bathrooms will source an unknown stone of equivalent quality, creating the same look at a fraction of the price.

    Go for understated glamour

    While some boutique hotels have quirky looks, the most luxurious have a timeless elegance. Choosing materials that don’t date not only makes your marble bathroom an equally fitting backdrop for a ’50s film star or a ’00s pop idol but also means it won’t ever look old fashioned. As stone is incredibly hard wearing and durable, it’s great if you can find a look that you’ll love for years to come – that way you only have to worry about updating the fittings when they wear out, or someone invents a better shower!

    Make a place for everything

    One reason hotel bathrooms look great is that they are uncluttered. Rather than restrict yourself to miniature toiletries, design your marble bathroom to have plenty of discreet storage so you can have everything on hand without having it on display. As an example, the space under the bath is rarely used but makes a great hideaway for cleaning products, loo roll and other items you want to keep out of sight but within easy reach.

    Decorate with care

    Bathrooms aren’t just functional spaces and the décor you choose is critical to creating the ambience you crave. A plain white marble bathroom can look sterile, which is why hotel designers will add a splash of colour. Even a neutral shade like mocha or navy can bring life to the room. Choose art and accessories for your new bathroom as carefully as you do for other rooms.

    Use lighting to create an ambience

    Ideally, you’ll want to be able to create several different atmospheres: perhaps a zingy, energizing feel for early mornings, as you freshen up before work and a relaxing, spa-like atmosphere for unwinding at the other end of the day. Lighting can have a big impact here, so it’s well worth installing a dimmer switch or lights that operate independently. Switch everything on for a dose of bright light on a dark morning, then dim the lights for a romantic evening.

    Applying sealant to granite worktops is a pretty easy process. You will pretty much just be painting a slab of granite like you would anything else; just start with a small area, and work your way out. One thing to note is that the sealant is toxic, and you will want to be wearing gloves, be working in a ventilated area, and possibly a mask as well. After you finish sealing the granite worktops, then you should be almost finished installing your brand new granite worktops.

    Limestone is a beautiful, affordable natural stone yet most people don’t even consider it. It’s sometimes seen as the poor relation of marble, yet it’s formed in a similar way and has an equally versatile appeal.
