Luxury Apartment in Queen's GateContemporary Cloakroom, London

If cost is no object what can be more practical and stylish than a marble clad bathroom? Many companies supplying marble will let you go to the yard to select the piece. As it is a natural product mined out of the ground no two pieces are exactly alike. In this bathroom the marble veining continues across the alcove so it still looks like a large continuous slab.

Allow for electrics If you’re planning layout changes to your bathroom, you’ll probably have to relocate lights and possibly light switches, so it’s important you don’t forget the cost of rewiring. If you’re having anything electric added or changed, you’re going to have to get an electrician in to upgrade the wiring. This might be as simple a change as adding in a shaver socket, or as complicated as installing new light fittings on separate circuits. For example, it works well to have overhead lighting on one circuit and ambient cabinet or wall lighting on another. The cost for this kind of work will depend on the complexity of what’s involved.

Space saversWhen you create a cloakroom, the space is often limited and every inch counts. ‘We often use short projection WCs, which are 20cm shorter than the standard size but work perfectly well in this space,’ explains Thomas Griem of TG Studio. ‘Selecting a small sink that remains practicably useable is important. And although there is little storage required of a cloakroom, we allow for a niche above the toilet as a minimum.’ If installing a cloakroom into a narrow and awkward space, think about installing a sliding door to free up space in the corridor or in the cloakroom itself - this will make the room feel much bigger than it is.

Limit the palette of materialsSticking to one or two materials can help a small room appear uncluttered and spacious. Here, the walls are fully lined in white marble with grey veining (likely to be Arrabescato or Calacatta marble). The custom basin keeps the palette used in the room to just two key materials – the timber flooring and the marble, which, as well as creating a neat space, also makes the display niche stand out.
