Most people enjoy luxurious amenities when travelling. Installing a spa-like bathroom in your home might seem expensive, but it’s achievable.
Here are inexpensive tips to help you create a hotel-worthy bathroom at home.
Make the Bath Tub a Focal Point
The easiest way to add luxe to your powder room is to make the bathtub the focal point. Statement bathtubs are instant head-turners. Installing a freestanding unit at the bathroom’s centre instantly evokes a 5-star feel.
Surround the tub with stands for holding candles and soap storing space for added functionality. You can also add frosted glass for privacy or hang long drapes to create a luxurious setting.
Upgrade Your Towels
Fluffy and oversized towels are the epitome of luxury. You can go a step further and acquire a matching dressing gown. Replace old, faded and mismatched bay towels with high-quality cotton towels.
White is the best colour because it exudes calmness and neutrality. You can wash it at high temperatures, and it doesn’t fade, so it always looks fresh and clean. More importantly, it blends well with other hues and patterns.
If white is unappealing, consider replacing your bright, multicoloured towels with lighter-hued, single-coloured towels.
If you have extra money, install a heated towel rack, so they’re always dry and ready to use.
Many bathrooms have limited floor space, so it takes one piece of art to make a huge statement. Although it seems counterintuitive, a small room allows you to use a bold pattern that could overwhelm a larger space.
Applying wallpaper is the simplest way to add a pattern to a bathroom. Floral designs bring country house vibes, while vibrant graphic prints add eccentricity. Ensure you choose a pattern matching other room features, especially bathtubs and sinks.
Choose the Right Lights
Think about hotel bathrooms and the different light fixtures they have. Often, you’ll find sconces on either side of the dressing mirror, overhead bulbs over the tub, and lights spread around the shower and vanity areas. All these light fixtures work harmoniously to create various moods and serve many functions.
Lighting is critical, but it’s easy to create a mess by choosing the wrong options. To avoid mistakes, focus on the fixture’s design and the effect you want it to create. Dimmer lights are ideal for the tub area because they create varying atmospheres. Bright sconces are perfect for the dressing space, and so on.
Keep it Personal
Despite their glamorous looks, hotel bathrooms tend to lack personality. This is because they have many users with different tastes. To keep your bathroom cosy, focus on the eccentric touches. Anything that makes you happy deserves a spot – art, flowers, green plants, etc. Check how much you add to avoid cluttering the space.
Hotels are a great inspiration when upgrading your home’s interior design elements. Using the simple tips mentioned above, you can transform your basic bathroom into a space that makes you forget the stressful nature of life.
