I have been browsing blogs for bathroom inspiration photos, tossing up an ensuite bathroom update. Here are some of the inspiration shots I've come across:

White marble is classic as a countertop surface. And the crisp white panelling completes the traditional look of this space. I'm not sure about the counter edging, though — I think an eased, less detailed edge would look more current.

Sleek grey quartz is more affordable than marble, but which do you think is easier to maintain day-to-day?

I've always loved the look of simple white subway tiles. With a dark grout, they would be easy to keep clean in a bathroom.

This stunning bathroom from Lonny has a half-wall of subway tile, leaving the top half bare for art and photos. Penny tiles on the floor are also a classic choice for bathrooms.

This tub is encased in walnut, continuing the warmth and grain of the floor. This wood is a bit busy for me, but a more uniform wood would lend a modern look. I love the idea of panelling the sides of a soaker tub, though. Brilliant.

What are your favourite materials to use in bathrooms? Do you have any regrets about splurging or saving?
