Decorating an ensuite bathroom

If you’re lucky enough to have one, the ensuite bathroom can be a personal sanctuary where you can escape the hustle and bustle of the family home. 

As a place where you can find a moment of privacy, it’s important to spend time designing and decorating your bathroom so that it’s both functional and aesthetically pleasing.  If you’re not sure where to start, here’s how you can create a spa-like bathroom at home. 

Choose a calming colour palette 

Around 74% of all adults regularly experiences periods of stress. So, it’s important to create a zen environment that you can enjoy after work.  

Calming, neutral tones like soft blues, gentle greens or warm greys can create a relaxing atmosphere. These colours will not only make your bathroom appear bigger but they’re also proven to aid relaxation.  

Select your fixtures and fittings

High-quality fixtures and fittings can elevate the look and functionality of your ensuite bathroom. 

Choose stylish and durable taps, showerheads and other hardware to add a touch of luxury. Pay attention to details like drawer pulls and towel racks, which can complement the overall design.

It’s worth noting that while black fittings are all the range in 2024, they can be tricky to keep looking pristine in a busy family bathroom. 

Add some lighting 

Proper lighting is essential in an ensuite bathroom. Combine overhead lighting with task lighting around the vanity to ensure a well-lit space. Illuminated mirrors are a fantastic addition as they look chic and provide ample lighting for your grooming needs. 

Add the personal touches 

Personal touches shouldn’t be overlooked in your bathroom. As well as injecting a bit of personality into the space, accessories will help soften the space. Soft, plush towels and a cosy bathmat are essential. 

Once you’ve decided on your soft furnishings, add some decorative elements. Top of the list is candles as they keep your bathroom smelling fresh and help with the overall ambience. 

If you can, add some plants. Studies suggest that plants help us tap into our biophilic connection which calms our brain, ideal if you’re hoping to relax after a long day. If you don’t have windows in your bathroom, consider adding some faux foliage instead. 

Final thoughts… 

Transforming your ensuite into a spa-like haven is easier than you think. By choosing the right colour scheme and opting for premium fixtures and fittings, you can create a space that helps you unwind.
