These vibrant but relaxing hotel bathrooms show how unusual colours, materials and styles can create the ultimate space to scrub.
From an earth-coloured wet room to a cherry-coloured terrazzo shower, they demonstrate why white tiles needn't be the default option when it comes to designing a bathroom.
This is the latest roundup in our Dezeen Lookbooks series that provides visual inspiration for designers and design enthusiasts. Previous lookbooks include interiors with slides at their centres, living rooms with statement rugs and kitchen extensions.
Tel Aviv-based studio Plesner Architects shows how the finer details such as decor, lighting and material choice can make a bathroom appear cosy and homely.
White linens, plaster walls and regional craft such as this tasselled rug make the space feel personal, even if it is away from home. An alcove just for candles adds the finishing touch.
"We wanted the stones, the patterns, the textures and the colours to be omnipresent, resulting in architecture that is woven in with the natural elements," Plesner Architects said.
Flecked, cherry-red terrazzo covers the floor and walls, which contrasts the glass partition and veiny marble shower stools.
Wearstler opted for materials in colours that match the hotel's beachside setting, such as sandy-coloured tiles and wooden flooring designed to remind guests of beach decking.
Tasked with making the accommodation feel "anti-modern", Hall chose to pair avocado-coloured sinks and toilets with chequered flooring and mustard yellow tiles, resulting in a maximalist aesthetic.
In this hotel's 175 rooms, the bathrooms are either covered in blush or sky-blue-coloured tiles. The colours were chosen to make guests feel as if they are staying at a tropical resort, as opposed to an urban hotel.
Another example of a maximalist bathroom can be found in the Hotel Saint Vincent, where American studio Lambert McGuire Design used chunky tubs and psychedelic wallpaper to make bathing more of an experience than a chore.
Throughout this 75-room hotel in New Orleans, the studio opted for an eclectic mix of design styles that range from 20th-century Italian to mid-century modern and Art Deco.
The roomy bathrooms which are wrapped in green tiles have walk-in showers, brassy sinks and inbuilt shelves where guests can store toiletries and makeup.
All of the rooms in this luxury hotel are fitted with contemporary decor typified by a neutral colour palette and earthy materials that centre Japanese design within a Californian location.
Guests can shower under bright skies or relax in a hand-crafted teak wood soaking tub in the minimalist wet room.
Pastel hues and wicker furnishing clash playfully with the floral print in this bathroom at the Goodtime Hotel in Miami.
Creatives Vitor Borges and Franck Laigneau incorporated vintage furnishings and one-off pieces in the bathroom of this hotel located in the historic city of Estremoz, Portugal.
In a subtle nod to Estremoz's marble-rich terrain, the designers used natural stone to craft the free-standing bath which acts as a centrepiece of the room. The same marble can also be seen on the sink basins and pink-hued shower cubicles.
