Chateau Denmark hotel plays homage to rock ‘n roll heritage
Developed by CAW Ventures and designed by Taylor Howes, the new hotel on Denmark Street is one of the most hotly anticipated hospitality openings this year.
Over the last two years many commercial interiors have been renovated and revamped, presenting the perfect opportunity to really make an impact with their design choices, particularly within hygienic high-traffic washrooms or bathrooms. Schlüter-Systems create products which preserve and protect tile and stone installations – here they discuss bathroom themes that have taken themselves beyond being a trend and look to be here to stay.
A timeless look which has become increasingly popular over the years is the classic black and white colour scheme. Fresh white tiles are commonplace in bathrooms but adding contrasting elements such as black tile trims and a statement shelf within the tile grout lines can create a dramatic finish whilst making the most of the space available. This theme allows the use of a multitude of colours when accessorising to create the desired ambiance.
Teaming luscious dark hues with shades of yellow or gold is a simple way to inject a feeling of luxury into your bathroom design without a hefty price tag. Adding marble elements, whether real marble or one of the super-realistic porcelain options now available, will elevate the feeling of indulgence. Whilst the brighter shades take centre stage, it is the subtle addition of the browns or blacks in a tile trim that help tie the whole look together.
We all know that taking inspiration from the outdoors helps to create a calming and welcoming environment which is perfect for commercial interiors, particularly with the recent focus on wellness and self-care. Airy spaces can be accentuated with greenery and earthy colours. Wood-effect tiles and light metal shades are ideal here, and the theme is especially impactful when paired with plenty of natural light – which can be beneficial to the plants too. Schlüter’s bathroom shelves in a textured finish offer useful storage without detracting from the design.
Another widely used trend in homes and hotels alike is the industrial look – think exposed brickwork, metallic materials, and high ceilings. This style is perfect within a bathroom or wetroom due to the multitude of sanitaryware finishes available. Keep it harmonious by using the same finish throughout or mix different metals to draw attention to particular areas or create distinct spaces in your design. Use textured tiles to add a tactile element, finishing the bathroom off with panache.
Schlüter’s extensive range of tile trims come in a wide array of colours, meaning there’s an option for any bathroom design. Styles range from chunky, square trims designed to be a feature through to slim, minimalist options that can be barely seen once installed. Coordinating bathroom shelves are available in several colours and designs to complete the look.
