Bathrooms with Fireplaces: the ultimate relaxing refuge

Following on from our earlier feature on spectacular outdoor fireplaces, we now want to help you bring the fireplace into your bathroom.

Although the bathroom may not be the first room you would think of installing a fireplace, nothing says luxury more than sitting in a bubble bath, glass of wine in hand under the glow of a fireplace.

The warm fire, the crackling of burning wood and the soft glow, a bathroom with a fireplace can be a decadent luxury— these ultimate relaxing refuges are what dreams are made of.


Everything in this bathroom has grand proportions. The extra-large fireplace with its huge decadent mantel sits in front of a two-person tub, creates a rather grand impression. Accompanied by an expanse of vanity area and multiple loungers, this bathroom has just about everything you’d need for a relaxing evening.

Our bespoke workshop is dedicated to very high quality, hand finished workmanship in stone and marble. Our designers, programmers, masons and carvers have worked on projects of all sizes and are capable of creating pieces to meet unique requirements.


In true Victorian fashion, extravagant details are present throughout this master bathroom, with the carved decorative fireplace surround at the centre. Its styling compliments the adjacent boxed tub perfectly.

A J Rotherham stone fireplace would not look out of place in this setting, intricately hand carved by our expert masons; we are able to produce bespoke pieces of period designs based on the Victorian, Georgian, Regency and Gothic periods.

Tip: Place cushioned furniture around the fireplace to create a welcoming pre- or post-bath lounge area.


With its subtle tones yet bold, feminine features, this quirky bathroom offers a stylish and pretty pampering space. The fantastically overbearing wire chandelier teamed with the free-standing tub lends a sophisticated focal point to the space.

Even though this fireplace blends well with the subtle tone of the walls and ceiling, its intricate design and heavy decoration adds to the scene to create an overload of romantic femininity.

Here at J Rotherham, our expert stone masons can produce the most beautiful detailing in the creation of our British stone fireplaces-view the Silenus as a stunning example; an ornate Georgian piece owning exquisite hand-carved moldings that depict a fanciful pastoral scene, perfect for your modern romantic pamper area.

If you don’t have a fire installed or your fireplace is not in use, think outside the box by using lots of candles and incense; create the mood with the help of a fire surround. You can have a woven basket in your bathroom with some firewood to create a warm look, or fill an empty fireplace with an array of sized candle sticks.

We couldn’t think of anything more perfect for this space than our very own Lyra Fireplace from our all new Contemporary Collection; teamed with a large expanse of Neolith Estatuario, a high-tech sintered stone which provides the look of luxurious white marble, would complement the grand colour scheme of this bathroom perfectly.
