Bathrooms act as a personal sanctuary where everyday we focus only on ourselves. And because the room should embody relaxation and encourage self-care, one of the most important qualities of a great bathroom is a neat and orderly space – after all, a tidy space leads to a tidy mind. Organising using something like these floating shelves from Temple & Webster ensures your beauty products will always be tidy and easily accessible for your daily routine.
A large statement mirror can really open up and maximise a space. Whether you’ve got a cramped, inner-city bathroom, or are lucky enough to enjoy a more spacious one, it can be just the right solution to give your bathroom that luxurious aesthetic. Take a look at West Elm’s beautiful vanity mirrors to replicate that bathroom magic yourself.
Looking for a fun way to give your bathroom a classic yet chic twist? Sticking on tile-printed wallpaper is an incredible way to level up your bathroom game if you’re not lucky enough to be blessed with the real thing – there are actually wallpaper offerings that are humidity resistant, like this one from Art3d. Use a monotone colour to match the vanity counter in your space for a clean and sophisticated look. The best part? It’s cheap and nonpermanent, so you can change the styles to your heart’s content.
Is your bathroom stuck in the twentieth century? An easy way to give your bathroom a sophisticated rework is by incorporating bold, dark features. Inky linens and bathroom accessories, like these bathroom beauties from Country Road, are the perfect pieces to create a modern space while complementing your bathroom’s old-school aesthetics. Add a relaxing candle into the mix and your bathroom will be a serene twenty-first century dream.
Designing a beautiful and lavish bathroom can be a very expensive undertaking. But one way to make your bathroom feel fit for a queen is by incorporating a few choice gold features and accessories to achieve a luxurious finish. We love West Elm’s collection of gold and stone accessories that would give a uniform and dainty look to any bathroom – even if you’re on a budget.
While minimalism is all about eschewing the unnecessary, Marie Kondo would totally approve of you bringing a little greenery and nature inside: a few potted plants bring a refreshing and serene energy into your space, instantly transforming your bathroom into an oasis. Head to your neighbourhood garden store and pick out a beautiful plant to spruce things up – it’ll pair beautifully with this 2 piece set of sleek planters.
