If you’ve ever been on holiday to Turkey or Morocco there’s a good chance that you may have experienced the indulgence of a hammam, or Turkish bath – and you may have fallen in love with their traditional Ottoman décor too.
Characterised by polished marble slabs and intricate tile mosaics, these large, bright domed rooms are a haven of relaxation. In this blog, Mira Showers will show you how to bring a touch of the Turkish style to your own bathroom – though your own Turkish massage therapist will be up to you!
If you’d like to give your bathroom a Moroccan makeover from the floor up, choose cool marble floor tiles in shades of cream and soft grey. Complement the marble with small mosaic tiles in similar shades on the walls, and if you’re feeling artistic, why not mix in some authentic blue floral Turkish tiles too.
Offset the coolness of the tiles with some wooden bathroom accessories like a laundry basket, or even a wooden flooring section around your shower cubicle or bathtub to make it the focal point of your bathroom.
Don’t forget to add the small details such as Turkish-style vases and jugs, tassled towels and plenty of handmade soaps, just like those used in the real hammams.
Complete the Look with a Mira Shower
Of course, your Turkish-inspired bathroom wouldn’t be complete without a luxurious Mira Shower, like the ever-popular Mira Mode Shower with its large 20cm deluge showerhead and sleek, chrome design.
Incorporating Mira’s Magni-Flo technology, the Mira Mode Shower gives up to three times more flow than similar mixer showers, even if water pressure is low in your home.
Teamed with the wide showerhead, this means you’ll be drenched in luxury every time you shower, and step out feeling as squeaky clean as you would in a real hammam!
