How to create a modern and luxurious masculine ensuite

I have been working with a client on an ensuite renovation.  We started with a pretty bland and boring bathroom are adding some bold choices in neutral tones to make a statement.  The client is a bachelor so we don't want anything feminine but I still wanted it to be super lux and fabulous.  

How to create a modern and luxurious ensuite bathroom - and keep it masculine!

Tip #1- Add a focal point to your bathroom

Add a dramatic focal point by choosing a bold and graphic backsplash tile

I choose this very geometric and bold hexagonal tile as the back splash for the vanity in this ensuite.  The tile will be installed the entire width of the wall behind the vanity from the countertop to the ceiling.

Tip #2 - Add a great looking faucet and sink to your bathroom

There are so many great choices for plumbing fixtures, choose wisely!

A faucet is a workhorse in any bathroom.  When choosing which one you like, touch it and make sure it feels comfortable.  The details on the Brizo Litze collection are the perfect combination of industrial and elegance.  And the lux gold finish will pop against the bold back splash tile.

For the sink, I selected a rectangular vessel which will provide interest and keep things sleek and modern.

Tip #3 - Add an interesting mirror

Ditch the builder's standard and glam up your bathroom mirror

Gone are the days of a basic mirror glued to the wall.  I like to add interesting mirrors in different shapes and different frame materials.  This round mirror with a lucite and gold frame will look amazing hanging in front of the graphic back splash.

Tip #4 - Get a great light fixture for your ensuite renovation

Light fixtures are like the jewellry of any room

I love selecting lights.  They can really make or break a design.  For this ensuite, I had to stick with a fixture that was wall mounted above the mirror as the client did not want to move the electrical box.  Bathroom vanity lights can be super ugly and boring.  These light are anything but.   

Tip #5 -Accessorize

You can't have a luxurious bathroom without some great looking accessories.  

Now that you have a luxurious bathroom, don't skimp out on the towels and accessories.  Get some great towels like these inspired by turkish hammam towels.  The fringed edges add a nice detail without being over the top.  Keep your accessories luxurious and refined.  

Now the wait is on to see the finished bathroom!
