Bathroom Ideas To Give Your Hotel An Exclusive Edge
Exclusive, boutique hotels are growing in popularity with discerning guests prepared to pay more for refinement and luxury.
Competition in this luxury accommodation category is high though, so you need to ensure your premises is up to scratch.
City-based boutique hotels are more inclined to offer a bed and breakfast service as opposed to dining facilities so more emphasis is put on bedroom and bathroom design.
Those all important customer reviews nearly always mention the bathroom, so it’s essential to put thought and effort into your bathroom designs. This should include quality fixtures, fittings and finishes.
You’ll give your guests a better experience and reap the rewards in returning visitors. Here are some ideas to give your hotel bathrooms that exclusive edge.
Guests expect Wi-Fi, climate control and state-of-the-art sound systems and televisions in their rooms. These can also be extended to the bathroom to enhance the overall experience.
Heated towel rails, heated toilet seats and underfloor heating not only provide a superior level of comfort but are also energy efficient, helping to cut down on heating bills.
If space is limited, forget the bath and install a luxury, walk-in shower. Added features such as remote controlled sprays, directional water sprays, massage functions and inbuilt seating can turn your bathroom into a luxurious haven with spa-like qualities.
Concerns for the environment and the need to use sustainable materials have a definite aesthetic value. Natural materials look better, they’re synonymous with quality, they’re longer lasting and they add beauty as well as function to your bathrooms.
Natural wood and stone have a timeless quality and are perfect materials to use in the bathroom.

Tadelakt wet rooms are fast becoming a fashionable alternative to a traditional bathroom or shower room. So what exactly is a Tadelakt wet room and why would you want one?
A wet room eliminates the need for a bathtub or an enclosed shower with a screen and tray. Basically, it’s a fully open shower. A tadelakt wet room can be created in a range of styles for all budgets, however, you to avoid water spraying everywhere, you’ll need to consider if your bathroom size is feasible.
But by removing the bathtub and shower tray and re-designing your bathroom to maximise space, you may be pleasantly surprised at how spacious it turns out to be.
Here’s a look at some of the pros and cons of installing a tadelakt wet room.
A wet room isperfect for a stylish, contemporary look. It can also add value to your home. The lack of screens, doors, curtains or shower trays also make it easier to clean.
Make sure your wet room is large enough to avoid spraying the toilet seat and ending up with wet towels and soggy toilet paper!
A wet room needs professional installation as the entire room needs to be sealed properly so that it’s completely waterproof from the floor to the ceiling.
A tadelakt wet room works well as a second bathroom. If you’re selling your home, many buyers still want a traditional bathroom.
A proper drainage system needs to be installed by a professional. A gradient will need to be created so that the water is channelled into the drain. One option is the installation of a sub-floor which can then be plastered over. Another option is installing a ready-made sloping shower tray that can be plastered over to produce a smooth surface that blends seamlessly with the rest of the floor.
