Follow these top tips to create a truly holistic bathroom, inspired by Eastern bathing rituals.
Objects that are not needed for bathing should be kept separate. So, for example, your toilet should, ideally, not be placed near your bath or shower.
Maximise space, even if your room size is limited, by revealing as much floor as possible with wall-mounted basins and toilets. Wet rooms and walk-in shower enclosures can also improve the flow of your room.
The perfect wet room should have invisible drainage. Position either slot drains or a linear grille on the side or in the centre of your shower area, using a slight incline in the floor or a flush shower tray.
A traditional Japanese shoji screen makes a great room divider in the bathroom, but it should be placed away from direct water sources to protect the wood.
Eastern bathing philosophy centres around an appreciation of natural finishes. Go for tactile, stone-effect tiles and wooden furniture.
