Our Guide to Bathroom Relaxation

Is the bathroom the most relaxing room in your house? Many people think of it as simply a functional space, but there’s no reason it can’t be so much more. With elegant design choices and luxurious facilities as well as easy use, you can elevate your bathroom to become the space that allows you to unwind.

Looking for inspiration for building a bathroom sanctuary shows just how varied relaxed bathroom design can be – but here are some of our favourite ideas to rouse your imagination.

Find a Singular Statement Piece

Bathroom 01

Just like any other room in the home, a well-designed bathroom will always have some kind of eye-catching feature which makes the viewer want to see more.

Whether you’re lured in by the striking presence of the freestanding bath, or prefer a more subtle feature such as ornate taps with intricate metalwork, adding an exquisite centrepiece to your bathroom brings charm and sophistication into what can otherwise seem an uninviting and uninspired space.

A centrepiece will also give the space purpose: your bathroom is no longer just for rushing to get ready in the morning, but for taking the time to draw a bath and unload the stresses of the day.

You can achieve this style using our following ranges:

Clearwater Baths
Merlyn Showers
Roca Bathrooms

Pay Attention to Detail

Bathroom 02

From the design of the tile that you use, right down to the accessories that you furnish your bathroom with, even the smallest detail matters when you are trying to achieve an elegant, attractive bathroom design.

In his book about Patterns of Home: The Ten Essentials of Enduring Design, Max Jacobson writes about the striking effect that comes from contrasting natural materials – such as wood and stone – with more refined details styled in metal and glass.

The key here is striking a balance; use your second, accent material sparingly to provide some interest without overwhelming the eye.

You can achieve this with our following ranges:

Acquabella Showers
Grohe Allure

Space Matters

 Bathroom 03

Space is essential for successful relaxation; it’s incredibly difficult to dull those stress-inducing thoughts and drift off into a blissful calm when you are in a crowded room.

Giving each feature enough room within the bathroom to stand out and essentially “breathe” is one of the easiest ways to reduce the clutter, and can easily be achieved with a little forward planning.  Visualise where each of your features will be placed, and consider how it will impact the look and feel of the bathroom – keeping the layout of the space in mind.

You can achieve this look by taking inspiration from our following ranges:
