Getting creative with cloakrooms

The smallest room in the house is where you can actually be most creative. Try paint colours or wallpapers you wouldn't try anywhere else, or even splash out on a beautiful basin and toilet. Here are some of our favourites cloakrooms to inspire you.

Wooden elements
This cloakroom uses wooden elements to beautiful effect. The slick oak shelving is stylishly contrasted with the rustic wall sculpture. They then added the natural wallpaper behind the backlit modern mirror. All grounded by the dark slate floors. Which all creates a very harmonious up-to-date feel.

Think big
Most people wouldn't consider putting a sizeable bathroom cabinet in a small room but here it really works. Just because the room is narrow, they have not designed to any constraints, instead building on the period story but adding striped wallpaper, a sweet countertop basin and luxury accessories.

Embrace luxury
Design knows no boundaries in this gorgeous cloakroom. Set against a beautiful dark colour, the antique mirror and chandelier become feature pieces as does the slick Corian basin surround. Finished off with brass taps and a brass waste trap for added luxury, this cloakroom looks a million dollars.

Subway tiles are still a must
There is no better 'look at my trendy modern bathroom' shortcut than subway tiles. Especially if, like this, you tile the whole room and use dark grout for graphic contrast. And we love the long, very useful, shelf on which also sits the countertop basin. The inset mirror keeps it modern but the foliage softens the overall look.

So very modern
The latest trend (especially in low-humidity rooms) is to not tile the walls, but leave them merely plastered and painted. If you use an easy-to-wipe-clean paint finish, then your walls will stay pristine. Leaving you free to enjoy a very slick and modern cloakroom.   If this post has left you itching to rip out your cloakroom and get all creative, then a quick inspirational trip to your local showroom is just what you need.
