5 design ideas to help create a relaxing bathroom

Designing a bathroom is no easy feat, but the resulting space should be a calm and relaxing

By Becca Green | 17 July 2020

The bathroom is a space that we go to take a breather and wash away the day. There are certain design features that will transform your bathroom into a relaxation haven.

Theres nothing quite like relaxing in a deep bathtub after a long day. If your main priority is relaxation then there’s nothing quite like a freestanding bath that is made to support the curvature of your body. Opt for a design that has built in water jets for that spa like feel.

Minimal shower

A fuss-free shower enclosure or wet room is essential for a relaxing bathroom. Choose a minimalist design that is clutter-free as possible to evoke relaxation. A flat shower tray and seamless shower doors are great options for this and consider two shower heads to tailor your showering experience to what you desire on a particular day.

Sustainable, long-lasting materials

Natural materials in the home instantly make us feel calmer and relaxed as they provoke images of nature and the outside world. Incorporate sustainable materials into your bathroom design through your choice of vanity unit and flooring. Reclaimed materials are not only better for the environment but they are sure to be long-lasting too.

Functional vanity

A vanity area is vital in any bathroom but in order to be emmersed in true relaxation your vanity must be stylish and functional. Make a statement with an all-marble design with hidden storage. Or, for a spa-like feel opt for a table top basin, which also means you don’t have to bend over as far. Accessorise your vanity with a high-quality mirror and lighting for optimum visability.

Throughout the home, lighting is important for creating particular moods and settings. For creating a bathroom which focuses on relaxation,  consider the positioning of your lighting for maximum impact. We love the idea of implementing a back light behind a large mirror to not only create a successful vanity area but for that dim, low light that is ultimate relaxation.
