Your bathroom should be a place where you are able to relax and unwind after a long or stressful day at work. Unfortunately, for a lot of people, the bathroom is just a place where they go through the motions of washing and brushing their teeth before another hectic day. However, it doesn't have to be that way; with a few changes, you can make your bathroom a place where you want to spend time in.
Osprey Bathrooms offer high quality designs for bathrooms in Glasgow, guiding you from your initial ideas to installation. We are big believers that you can achieve the perfect tranquil bathroom, with just some careful planning and paying close attention to detail.
So we have decided to share our best tips and advice for creating a calm and tranquil bathroom in your home.
Consider a Wet Room
A wet room will turn any bathroom into a luxurious and practical space. It’s perfect for smaller bathrooms, as the lack of shower cubicle will free up room.
A wet room style shower area can give your bathroom the ultimate tranquil spa-like feel – perfect for the relaxing look you are going for.
We suggest you fit a glass screen for a stylish and minimal look.
Change the Lighting
You can alter the mood in your bathroom by changing up the lighting. Ditch the overly bright lights for something that is a little softer – therefore a little more relaxing.
You can do as little or as much as you want to. For a low cost design, change your existing bulb or install a dimmer in your bathroom. You could even just ditch the light altogether and light some candles for the ultimate tranquil feel.
For those who want a little more, you could have lights recessed into the ceiling, or a grouping of clear glass shades.
We recommend adding some lights to your bathroom mirror for the perfect Hollywood look.
Add a Rug
Instead of an average monochromatic bath mat, think about investing in a rug instead. Using a rug can make a big difference to the look in your bathroom – and can alter the ambiance.
It’s your choice on the style of the rug and there are many options available, from contemporary to oriental.
The only advice we have is to make sure that you choose a rug which is made from a fabric that can stand the type of humidity in a bathroom.
Create a Plant Oasis
Create a peaceful setting in your bathroom by bringing a little bit of nature inside. Some house-plants do extremely well in the bathroom environment – and they can also help clean the air.
Choose a potted plant such as an orchid, or one that does well in a moist damp environment.
For those who have pets who may eat a real plant, a realistic looking fake plant can also create the same beautiful look.
Light Some Scented Candles
Who doesn't appreciate a good smelling bathroom? A few well placed candles can add a sense of tranquillity to your bathroom. You should choose ones that give off a relaxing scent such as roses, jasmine, lavender or amber. Be careful with them though – we suggest using flameless candles for added safety.
Incense and sprays can also leave your bathroom smelling lovely.
