Bathroom design should go beyond function – adding visual interest with textures and natural elements can be key in creating a relaxing environment right from the moment you step foot inside the room.
Cluttered countertops and overcrowded cabinets can be anything but relaxing. To revitalize your space, start by eliminating unnecessary items from your countertops and cabinets as well as installing organizers to keep everything neatly tucked away.
Clear Out the Clutter
Bathroom clutter can quickly accumulate, making it hard to keep everything tidy. Undergoing a decluttering process is both satisfying and can make keeping everything under control simpler.
Beginning your bathroom design journey by taking everything out and sorting items into categories: keep, recycle or discard. This will allow you to see the larger picture when it comes to bathroom decor and design.
Once everything has been brought back into its proper places, consider investing in drawer tidies such as those offered by iflo Serino to compartmentalise items and make it easier for all family members to put things where they belong. This will also promote daily pick-up habits to prevent another messy bathroom situation from developing again.
Create a Relaxing Shower Enclosure or Wet Room
No matter if it is to create an exquisite and relaxing en suite bathroom or simply upgrade the family tub, wet rooms offer luxurious yet practical solutions. Furthermore, as their shower enclosure panels and trays can easily be removed for cleaning purposes they make these luxurious yet practical additions simple to manage and clean up after themselves.
Consider including natural wood elements in your wet room designs to bring warmth into the space and contrast against white tiles or marble surfaces for an eye-catching feature that also helps make the room seem larger and airier. This will add character and give the impression of space.
Your wet room could even benefit from having seating to encourage longer soak times; an inbuilt shower bench would make an excellent addition.
Add Drawer Tidies
Bathroom drawers and cabinets often become an overwhelming tangle of items that is difficult to declutter, yet simple storage solutions can make a big difference in keeping them tidy.
Drawer dividers are an effective way of keeping items from becoming an unruly pile. Available at most hardware stores, these are perfect for organizing lotions, toiletries and other everyday products into neat groups.
Utensil containers can also be an effective way to organize drawers by providing family members with easy storage solutions for small items like hair ties and bobby pins. Furthermore, these utensil organizers come in various sizes, making it easier for everyone to put away their things as needed; additionally, utensil holders are easily removable or replaced if necessary.
Encourage Natural Light
Integrating natural light is a top bathroom design idea for creating a relaxing spa-like ambience, whether through windows or glazed doors, or perhaps creating an alcove that welcomes light from above through an atrium rooflight.
Lighter hues like white bring in natural sunlight and are an ideal way to set the scene for an enjoyable bathing or showering experience. Reflective surfaces like tiles and glossy cabinetry help refract light around the bathroom and brighten its atmosphere.
If your bathroom does not feature windows, consider an innovative lighting scheme using one streamlined Solatube fixture to bring in natural daylight during the day and supplemented electric lighting at night. A dimmer switch will enable your household members to set the ideal level of illumination at any given time.
Create a Relaxing Seating Area
If your bathroom is small enough, adding an upholstered chair with warm fabrics can bring warmth and comfort. A seat makes preparing for bath or shower time simpler and taking quick breaks during preparation or sipping tea afterward more manageable. A full seating area might not be possible in every situation; small benches or stools work just as effectively to add softening textures in this hard space – as shown by designer Breegan Jane who placed a round stool outside the shower door which complimented all the rounded edges seen elsewhere such as windows, sconces, and seating in this master bathroom design project.

Showcase Calming Accessories
Cluttered counters and shower areas don’t make for relaxing bath experiences, so prioritize storage solutions to tuck away all extra items. Baskets, shelves, wall-hung units and furniture pieces can all help maximize bathroom storage solutions while keeping surfaces tidy.
Use natural textures like woven towels, folds of folded linen and touches of wood to add warmth and comfort to a contemporary bathroom design. Incorporating these elements helps break up its hard lines.
Choose quality materials that add luxurious details without being overly fussy, and design that suits both your personality and home style. Achie the ideal balance between functionality and aesthetics to make your bathroom a haven of relaxation for everyday tasks and indulgent spa-days alike.
