You needn’t spend a fortune to create a designer look for a bathroom – try our clever ideas to get high style, whatever your spend.
Vittone Bathroom Suite - Bathrooms.com 

Create high end style in a big bathroom
If you want a contemporary look that oozes hotel style luxury, choose a suite that has a combination of curves and angular lines. However big (or tiny) your bathroom, a freestanding bath will make the room feel instantly glamorous, while, in a larger room, double basins will give the space a boutique appeal.
How to get the look
Our Vittone range includes his and hers console basins, £499 each. The ‘his’ inner square of the basin complements the ‘hers’ inner curve to make an almost-matching pair. The consoles’ tapered legs give them an elegant, art deco feel – bang on trend for this year – and they’re practical, too, with lots of space beneath for decorative storage of accessories and necessities.
Which bath to choose to compete with the good looks of these basins? The Thornton freestanding bath, £599, works with both contemporary and period settings, combining the conventional style of a rectangular bath with the luxury of a freestanding one. Or, for a more contemporary look still, the Aalto freestanding bath (not pictured), £899, has a black outside and white inside that creates a striking statement.
Match the bath with a Provost floorstanding bath shower mixer with waterfall spout, £249, and choose Provost basin monoblocs with waterfall spout, £39 each, for your basins. Contemporary in looks, the monoblocs mix the water as it flows into the basin, giving you the perfect temperature every time.
To complete the look, the Vittone back to wall toilet, £279, is the perfect buy for a family bathroom or a glam en-suite. The back to wall design means it’s a real space saver, too.

Downsize your budget to match your space
If your bathroom is smaller than you’d like, rejoice! That means you can get high chic on a low spend. Make the most of the space by choosing compact or wall-hung pieces, and look for curves rather than angles to save room and soften the finish.
How to get the look
Consider the bath first. Freestanding baths are ideal for creating a boutique feel, but back to the wall baths are more practical if space is tight. Our Palladio back to the wall bath, only £189, has the best of both worlds: sitting at the centre of the focal wall, it will give your bathroom that spa-like feel, with its curvaceous shape and smooth edges, while making the most of space in a small room. 
To complement the bath, our Bernini wall hung semi pedestal basin, £129, is a curvaceous piece that doesn’t sacrifice style to save space. The inner curve of the basin is complemented by the soft curve of the outside, to give your bathroom a laid back, contemporary look. The shorter pedestal offers you the choice of positioning, as well as space beneath to keep your bathroom essentials hidden away.
Looking for a compact loo? A wall hung toilet is, of course, an obvious choice, but if you’re aiming for a relaxed contemporary look rather than high end design, a close-coupled toilet is the perfect buy. Our Bernini close coupled toilet, £209, has a subtly shaped cistern that contrasts nicely with the strong curve of the pan to give a sleek look. The chrome push button on the cistern is a nice modern touch, too.
When it comes to taps, look no further than our Aalto basin monobloc, £39, and Aalto bath filler, £99. Both have curves to complement the shape of the Palladio bath and Bernini basin, while the straight lines of the spout and handles keep them looking contemporary.

Get a traditional feel you can afford
Want a smart finish for a bathroom in a period property? You needn’t spend a fortune or go for anything too clichéd – just choose fuss-free pieces with strong shapes and defined lines and up the glamour with a dramatic decorating scheme and carefully chosen accessories. 
How to get the look
Build your bathroom’s look around the bath. If space is tight or you have a young family, the streamlined Alberti back to the wall bath, £209, gives you the luxury of a freestanding bath with the practicality and price tag of a straight bath. Its cornered edges make it ideal for awkward spaces, and are an eye-catching decorative detail, too.
To complement the bath, the neat, tapered Davis pedestal basin, £129, is ideal for both small bathrooms and cloakrooms, too. In a larger space, double the wow factor with twin basins, one next to the other. Why do we love this basin design? Well, its simplicity means it’s as good a fit for modern bathrooms as it is for traditional style rooms. 
Match the basin with the Vaux basin monobloc, £59, and the bath with the Vaux bath filler, £109. Their cubed shape is softened by the curve of the spout, while the single lever handle will give the room a minimalist leaning – perfect if you want an understated feel.
Or, if you need to save space and want to give the bathroom a more modern edge, mix and match the Davis range with the Cubitt range (not pictured). Our favourites include the angular Cubitt taps, a rectangular-shaped Cubitt basin, £129, and the Cubitt walnut slimline unit, £299, which, at 1000mm wide but only 235mm deep, creates an incredibly compact but stylish storage solution for small bathrooms and cloakrooms.
The Cubitt close coupled toilet, £179, has similar proportions and is more angular than the Davis close coupled toilet, £159. Finish the look with the Cubitt illuminated mirror, £99, whose design reflects (excuse the pun) the angles of both the Cubitt and Davis ranges.
