You style it up in every other room in your home. Why shouldn't your bathroom receive the same treatment?
In a well-appointed pamper zone, clearing the clutter is essential for a sense of calm. With a plethora of options, from floating shelves and freestanding units to bespoke boxes and slick mirrored cabinetry, merging form and function is a breeze.
2. Art & objets d'art
“When it comes to decorative elements, treat your bathroom like any other room in the home and select pieces that reflect your personality,” says Petrina Turner of Petrina Turner Design.
Think pretty porcelain pieces for the vanity to hold jewellery and bathing accoutrement, decorative hooks for draping bathrobes and towels, hanging plants for a flourish of greenery, and embellishing walls with artwork.
"If you don't have any issues with damp and your bathroom is properly ventilated with a good exhaust system, framed artwork shouldn't be a problem," says Petrina. "It is best, though, to steer away from steam wet areas, and hang pieces on a wall beside the vanity, or showcase them in a powder room."
Keep your dirty laundry under wraps with a hamper that offers style and practicality in one neat package. "I love the jute baskets from The Dharma Door, as they're a great way to add texture to a minimalist scheme, says Jo McIntyre of Beautiful Home.
Avoid heavy lifting by choosing a lightweight hamper or a basket with a removable bag that allows you to bundle up the contents "Hampers with inner bags made of polyester are a nice alternative as they don't absorb moisture or odours from the laundry," Says Tiffany Buckins of Ikea.
4. Bath & body products
Choose quality handmade products with beautiful scents, natural ingredients and stylish packaging to use and display on your vanity and bathroom shelves. Quality on the inside usually yields better quality packaging that you'll be proud to display. Your skin (and that of your guests) will thank you.
