As the cold draws in, you’ll want to make your bathroom as cosy and inviting as possible. These suggestions will help you create a warm and welcoming bathroom, ideal for the winter months, by emphasising the use of natural wood and warm colours to counteract the starkness of the outdoors.
Focus on the senses
The senses are very important when it comes to creating the perfect environment. Sight, touch, and smell should all be considered while designing a warm and inviting bathroom. Creating a relaxing atmosphere in the bathroom can be assisted through a variety of textures. Adding pampering elements such as a plush robe and fuzzy slippers will be easy on the eye and feel lovely on the skin. The sense of smell is crucial as well. You may add anything from reed diffusers, candles, or warming oils to really set the mood.
Decorate with treats
The use of bath products such as bath salts, bubble bath, and bath bombs have become increasingly popular. Use these pieces as part of your decor instead of locking them away in a cupboard. In particular, bath bombs can add a lot of colour and vibrancy to the bathroom if displayed in a basket or pretty box on a shelf or vanity because they come in so many unique forms and colours. Just keep them dry before you plan to use them.
Introduce a little nature
One of the best ways to make a bathroom cosier is to introduce a little nature. In the shower, this could mean a rainfall showerhead. The overhead design means the water falls straight down, just like rain, which makes taking a shower soothing. Adding seasonal or artificial plants and flowers can also bring in the cosiness and keep spirits high as the nights get darker.
Indulge in luxury accessories
Continuing with the senses, add some nice finishing touches to your bathroom with some soft linens, high-quality fluffy towels, and a nice bath mat, and you’ll find it much easier to drag yourself out of the warm shower. Instead of stacking towels, which can cause the bottom towels to get crushed and harsh over time, keep them rolled up or hang them on heated towel rails to keep them dry and fluffy at all times. If your towels are feeling a bit rough, use 1/4 cup of distilled white vinegar in the fabric softener compartment of your machine – it softens towels and helps removes bacteria.
Bring in the warm colours
Large bathrooms might feel cold and unwelcoming if they aren’t decorated with the right colours; however, by incorporating plenty of warm colours like oranges, terracottas, and browns, you can make your space feel much more inviting. For that relaxing spa vibe, stick to neutral colours and patterned tiles, but also consider gold or brass accents.
Keep the heat in
Once you’ve washed, be sure to shut your windows and turn off extraction fans after the bathroom has dried up. We don’t want the bathroom to turn mouldy after you’ve put so much effort into making it cosy!
