Tips for creating a relaxing bathroom

Paul Gavin from LGBTQIA+ friendly builders AQWA shares his tips for improving your bathroom to create a relaxing oasis.

For a lot of people, their bathroom is an oasis of rest and relaxation. If your current bathroom is less than ideal when it comes to inducing a sense of relaxation, there are plenty of ways to give your space a facelift. We have some ideas that can turn your room into the luxury at-home spa you well and truly deserve. 

Incorporate some artwork

A nice piece of art can truly elevate the style of any space, and your bathroom is no exception. Whether you’re looking for a large statement piece that acts as a centrepoint for your bathroom, or a minimalistic, soft, coastal piece to whisk you away, beautiful art does wonders for your mood.

Go green!

Now we all know how much greenery can enhance the mood. There’s just something so serene about being surrounded by lush plantation and the fresh air it provides, it’s the perfect match when it comes to a bathroom. Hang some plants by your bathroom window or place some small and sweet pots along your basin – or go all out and do it all!

Install a tile heating system

If you’re considering a bathroom renovation, it’s the perfect opportunity to look into under-tile heating solutions. These are real game changers, especially during the cold seasons where showering and bathing is a little more inconvenient.

Utilise natural wood

Natural wood creates a calming and relaxing environment, bringing the outdoors in a very subtle instance. You can do this by installing wooden cabinets, shelving or by adding one of those beautiful timber bath trays over the tub, with the addition of flowers and candles for a pop of elegance. It is important to select high quality wood, though, as some wooden materials are susceptible to damage or even rot if regularly subjected to damp environments. Consider using hinoki, teak, or cedar wood for the best quality results!

Despite seeming simple enough to incorporate, it’s always good to speak to a professional beforehand to make sure you’ve covered all bases and don’t run into any roadblocks along the way.
