The urban bathroom can be a decent size or spatially-challenged but is always a great space to be more adventurous with tiles or wall textures. Marble, polished concrete, subway tiles and exposed bricks all create a contemporary urban feel. Here are ten gorgeous urban bathrooms to inspire you.
Match your marble
Marble is not the cheapest of materials but if you are only doing one feature wall, then splash out and match your marble to create a mirrored symmetrical effect.
Subway tiles are still a favourite
Especially used here on a diagonal to create a fresh new look. We also love the varnished chipboard used as a basin cabinet. A great way to use a cheaper material in a modern way.
Accessorise with textures
Chunky towels and rustic stools are great additions to the clean lines of this bathroom and add a warm, organic feel.
We love the contrast between the dynamic black and white floor tiles and the softer grey polished concrete wall in this urban bathroom.
Expansive wow factor
Use large tiles throughout your bathroom to create a modern streamlined space.
No one can deny the beauty and feel of marble and here they have covered all surfaces with it for a truly luxurious look.
If you have the space, then divide your bathroom into zones using different textures. For a really glamorous finish, add a chandelier and luxurious rug.
Expose your brick
Urban spaces look amazing with exposed bricks. If you want to keep your insulated walls but also enjoy the rugged look, then try lining the walls with brick slips.
Go urban industrial
The industrial trend combines so well with different styles, but especially with the urban look. Here the basin support is made from cast iron and the bathroom is accessorised with wood and white to soften it all.
Urban can also be traditional
The urban look doesn't have to be modern, as this bathroom shows. A roll top bath looks just as good with marble and subway tiles. All images via Pinterest. For even more urban bathroom inspiration, check out our Pinterest board.
