Most of us will admit, we judge the luxury of a hotel based on its bathroom suites. But what is it that makes a hotel bathroom so desirable?
The bathroom is often a place we use as a retreat, time away. There is not anything quite like a relaxing soak in the bath or an unending sing-along shower. The bathroom is the perfect place to rinse that long, tiring day off! Thus, understandable that we desire to replicate spa and hotel bathrooms in our homes. Let us show you how to bring elegance to your washroom!
To create a luxurious bathroom, lighting is extremely important. It is imperative that you delicately consider the types of lighting you want to use. You could have warm light or cooler light, but it is important that you don’t mix the two. Make sure that you are consistent throughout. Luxury hotels often opt for main lighting and complimentary lighting. For example, it is a good idea to have two flat lamps either side of the mirror, reducing shadows. In addition to that, think about how the natural light might bounce off the mirror in your bathroom.
Accessories are of paramount importance in every hotel bathroom. How many times have you been disappointed if there was no shower gel or the towels weren’t just quite soft enough? Hotel bathrooms often exhibit soft white Egyptian cotton towels that feel like a cloud tickling your body. They are a great accessory to invest in.
Consider matching toiletry dispensers. You don’t want plastic bottles laying around your luxury bathroom. Dispense your toiletries into dispensers that match the aesthetic you are trying to procure. Alternatively, choose luxury bathing products throughout your bathroom to really pull things together.
Brassware is an extremely popular choice at the moment for bathroom accessories. Think about using brushed brass towel hangers, taps, doorknobs, radiators to bring both elegance and character into the room.
Start as you mean to go on. Have a clear out.
The same way you wouldn’t like your hotel bathroom to be filled with clutter, your hotel-inspired bathroom shouldn’t be either. Keeping clutter to a minimum can be a challenging task, but genius storage solutions can help with that! You should scrutinise which items you need and those that are no longer of use.
The items that you do keep should be carefully organised. Everything needs a place. That way, it is easier for others to keep it like that. Think about the types of storage you need. Do you need drawers? Cupboards? Shelves?
Now, while this wholly depends on the space you have, it always feels much more luxurious to have a separate bath and shower. Of course, this isn’t always possible, and compromises can be made. Some hotel bathrooms do have a bath shower or don’t even have a bath at all and still manage to feel luxurious. So don’t be downhearted if you only have a small space to play with! A deep, freestanding bath is always an amazing centrepiece for your bathroom and gives it a certain je ne said quoi. That said, a huge double walk-in shower will also give you that pampered feeling.
Design is the most quintessential part of your luxury hotel bathroom. It can be the make it or break it moment. The best way to easily create your hotel bathroom design is to KEEP IT SIMPLE! How often do you visit a hotel or spa with cluttered bathrooms? Bar a few exceptions, hardly any! You need to incorporate the correct mixture between decoration a clutter. Less is more. Think Scandinavian minimalist.
Your design could include certain features, too. For example, opting for marble design throughout will keep your bathroom classy yet give it extra oomph! Not only being beautiful, but marble also has lots of other benefits. It is extremely hardwearing and exceptionally durable and reflects light all around the room. That will open and give the optical illusion of a much larger space.
Another way to bring in a sense of opulence is to install a double sink. Nothing says lavish like your own personal sink. Sharing? Not today.
Why not bring the outside in? In most spas, you will be able to see greenery throughout. Plants inside the home can have many health benefits as well as looking nice and feeling cosy. Greenery will naturally purify the air, resulting in improved mental health and productivity. The air will remain cleaner, and moisture will be added to it. Just make sure you choose plants that love moisture and can survive in low light.
The colour scheme is another especially important factor to your hotel bathroom at home. You will notice that hotels seldom use extravagant, loud colour schemes throughout their rooms. Now, this can all depend on the size, shape and lighting of your bathroom. You should consider colour very carefully.
Neutral tones are usually the way to go. That does not mean it has to be all white. You can play around with deeper neutral tones to define the different spaces or create shadows. Flirt with the idea of a light-coloured floor to really stretch it out and elongate the room.
