Many bathroom interior designers explore the idea of space-saving, making the most out of little areas, and utilising what you have. They focus on making small spaces look larger through clever mirrors and light colours. Thus, larger bathrooms are often forgotten about, and if you’re lucky enough to have a bigger-than-average bathroom space, it can be challenging to know how to make the most out of it. Large bathrooms can sometimes feel empty, as once you have the essential fixtures and fittings, some people lack inspiration and aren’t sure how to fill the space.
That’s why, in today’s blog, we’re taking a look at how you can make your large bathroom feel cosy and welcoming. To do so, we’ll be delving into the best colour schemes to use and how choosing the right bathroom furniture has a strong impact. Head over to our blog for more top tips, interior design inspiration, and updates on the latest kitchen, bathroom, and tile trends.
Don’t Shy Away from Dark Colours
Black and dark colours may seem a bit daunting as they can make a room feel smaller and more closed in. Although this is sometimes true, a dark colour scheme in a bathroom can create an atmosphere and give the room feeling. Our Concrete Project tiles are an excellent choice for this design trend. Available for use on bathroom walls, their strikingly dark shades of greys and black make a statement and immediately give the room a more lived-in feeling.
As well as considering dark colours for the walls, why not choose dark fixtures? A black toilet, sink, or bath prevents a large bathroom from feeling empty and adds depth. If you lack inspiration or can’t see how these bold colours fit into your room, please come and visit us at our bathroom showroom. We have an incredible range of luxury bathroom brands to choose from – you can browse our collections and get a feeling of what these stunning fixtures, fittings, and tiles would look like in your home.
Picking out the right flooring for a large bathroom may seem challenging. There are many questions to consider, such as ‘should I choose a plain design or a patterned tile?’. If you decide that a patterned tile floor is best for your bathroom, consider our Element tiles in a range of different greyscale Victorian designs or natural stone effect tiles. These designs add class and elegance to any bathroom make the perfect choice for those with a traditional aesthetic.
Additionally, if a plain floor is more your style, why not try a bathroom rug to add dimension and a cosy feel to your bathroom? Just make sure to stay on top of washing your soft bathroom furnishings such as rugs, as they can become a magnet for mould if not kept properly.
Not only do double sinks look incredible in large bathrooms, but they have a long list of practical advantages too. For example, if you’re sharing a bathroom with your significant other, there’s no doubt there’s at least a few of their bathroom habits you’d like to eliminate. Perhaps they take too long to get ready? Do they leave their toiletries all over the bathroom? Do they never clean up after themselves after brushing their teeth? Abolish these annoying habits with a double sink, and you will have a happier, cleaner, and more luxurious bathroom in no time.
Choosing The Right Bathroom Furniture
Once you’ve picked out your wall colours, your flooring, and your fixtures and fittings, it’s time to look at the remaining space and see how you can create a cosy atmosphere. Wall cabinets are a great starting point, as not only do they offer fantastic storage solutions for all your bathroom essentials, but they can help fill up a blank wall and make for something interesting to look at. Pictured below are wall cabinets from Laufen, available here at Roccia.
Additionally, why not get creative and add in a chaise longue or other bathroom seating if you’ve got the space. Whilst chairs are functional for sitting and storage, they’re also extremely elegant and can turn any standard bathroom into a welcoming yet luxurious space.
Adding The Finishing Touches
Creating a cosy atmosphere in a large bathroom is all about the finishing touches. While the right flooring and wall colour choices are essential, the final pieces, such as art, décor, and plants, make a huge difference and transform a room.
Plants are a great design addition to a bathroom, and depending on which you choose, they can have some fantastic health benefits. Of course, they improve air quality, but they also work to absorb moisture in the air and ward off any harmful bacteria.
Additionally, wall art is a fantastic idea to help make your larger bathroom feel welcoming and homely. Get creative and design the artwork yourself, or you can pick something that suits whoever you share the bathroom with to display a personal touch.
