With the general trend towards health and wellbeing, bathrooms – once an afterthought in the interior decorating stakes – are coming into their own as stylish, aspirational spaces.

With the general trend towards health and wellbeing, bathrooms – once an afterthought in the interior decorating stakes – are coming into their own as stylish, aspirational spaces.

Pinterest saves for ‘spa bathrooms’ rose by 269% last year, as more and more of us seek to recreate the luxe look of resort-inspired or boutique-hotel bathrooms that we’ve encountered on our travels. It’s out with the threadbare towels, in with high-end materials such as marble, unusual elements such as black taps or Crittal shower screens, statement baths and eye-catching geometric or mermaid tiles.

If you’re looking for spa-worthy bathroom flooring, you’ve come to the right place. These three Avenue floors are not only practical – being fully waterproof and suitable for use with underfloor heating – but are sure to make a splash in the design stakes, too.

1 Our Ultimate Tones collection captures stone nuances and natural mineral and rock forms in exquisite detail, and our Brighton design is a fabulous example. In an of-the-moment oversized tile pattern with both grey and ash-brown tones, it features distinctive surface markings that add character and bags of visual interest. And it’s not just beautiful; this hardwearing vinyl is one of our highest-performing floors, boasting a high tog rating, noise-reducing benefits and a Superguard PU lacquer coating that protects against dirt and scuff marks.

2 Hexagonal tiles are bang on trend right now and offer a modern twist on the classic square or rectangular tiled look. Our Ultimate Expressions Goldie vinyl flooring packs a hefty design punch, with contrasting grey tones and a graphic 3D effect that will liven up even the blandest of spaces. Water-resistant and easy to clean, it can go anywhere in the home – from entrance halls to conservatories – and comes with an impressive 15-year wear warranty.

3 A rustic whitewashed wood-effect floor, Ultimate Style Verbier is the perfect finishing touch for a seaside-cottage scheme, but has a sophisticated side, too; teamed with a gilt mirror and candle sconces, it will add a hint of French chateau chic to any bathroom. Don’t let its appearance fool you, though. This is one tough floor, with a 2.5mm wear layer that makes it suitable for heavy domestic use. And like most Avenue floors, it comes in two, three and four-metre widths so you can benefit from less waste in small rooms and fewer seams in open-plan spaces.
