Since marble is usually associated with the elegant Roman and Greek statues and temples, using marble will create an oasis of grand atmosphere.

Lighting is key since the right kind of lighting, in either warm or cool, is needed to create the different moods. Therefore, the hotel bedrooms are usually fitted with different forms of lighting in the form of the wall sconces, overhead and recessing mirror lights. Remember to use task lighting for the vanity counter and recessing lighting behind the mirror to eliminate the shadows and an overhead lighting to fully illuminate the shower area.
