Bathrooms are often seen as functional spaces to dash in and out of as we go about our day, but they can also be a haven of tranquillity in your own home. With a few minor adjustments, you can easily upgrade your existing bathroom into a serene space where you’ll want to spend time.
Clever Bathroom Design
If you’re planning a bathroom remodel, this is the perfect opportunity to overhaul and redesign your bathroom to meet your exact requirements. However, even if your budget doesn’t extend to a new bathroom suite, you can still tweak your existing layout to make the space more tranquil and inviting.
The first step to creating a soothing bathroom experience is to banish clutter, so invest in some bathroom-specific storage, such as small drawers that can be used to house toiletries, toilet rolls and towels neatly out of sight. Natural materials like wood, seagrass and rattan work well in bathrooms as they don’t rust.
Our homes should reflect our personalities and values, and our bathrooms are no exception. A lick of fresh paint can go a long way and framed prints can jazz up an otherwise plain bathroom. Embrace bathroom accessories like scented candles and consider adding in some humidity-loving houseplants.
Have Everything to Hand
Making sure you have everything you need easily to hand in your bathroom is key. After all, the last thing you want to do when you’re trying to kick back and relax is to go hunting for something in another part of the house!
Whether it’s investing in the right equipment such as a whitening water flosser or stocking up on skincare and bath salts, ensuring you have everything you need right at your fingertips will make your bathroom experience more tranquil.
Luxurious Fluffy Towels
One way of upgrading your bathroom without spending a fortune is to invest in some nicer towels. This may sound simple but there’s nothing quite like wrapping yourself in a luxuriously soft and fluffy towel after a long bath or hot shower.
High-quality Turkish and Egyptian cotton towels are both soft and absorbent. Choose coloured towels that complement your bathroom’s colour scheme or opt for plain white towels for a timeless look that will make every day feel like a spa day.
The Right Colour Scheme
Getting the right colour scheme in your bathroom is essential when trying to recreate that home spa look and feel.
Soft, muted shades will help establish a tranquil atmosphere, while bold, contrasting colours are invigorating. Soft greens, pale blues and gentle greys are popular choices, but other colours such as pastel pink and lilac shouldn’t be ruled out.
For timeless appeal, choose neutral shades, such as warm white and beige but incorporate pops of gentle colour with towels or accessories to prevent the space from looking too clinical.
