Tips for designing a luxurious bathroom

There’s nothing more luxurious than an elegant bathroom. But it doesn’t have to be all Italian marble and solid brass fittings – you don’t have to the rich and famous to enjoy touches of elegance in your own home.

If what you’re after is sophistication on a budget, there are many inexpensive ways to create a luxury aesthetic. A little goes a long way, and you might even find you already have some of the ingredients to completely transform your space. Our MyHaven interior designers have some clever advice for anyone looking to introduce a little luxury into their space.

Elegance is easy

It doesn’t take much to keep it luxe. Firstly, stay away from anything too gaudy. A zany shower curtain is
never going to give you the look you’re after. Similarly, keep clutter to a minimum. Simple things like sorting out your storage can take your bathroom straight from shambolic to chic.

Sophisticated scents

Scent is one of the senses we most associate
with feelings of relaxation and calm. Introducing sophisticated scents to your bathroom can be a wonderful way to achieve that beauty spa vibe.
Think essential oils, bath salts, scented candles
and sweet-smelling soaps.

Play with textures

Statement textures can really elevate your style,
and one thing our designers love is playing with different feels and finishes to create sophisticated looks. Large format floor tiles, for example, are a
sure way to make your bathroom look and feel sleek.

Set the mood

No one ever went wrong with a little mood lighting. Establishing a vibe can be as easy as choosing the right light fittings. Go bold with statement lighting or tone it down with a soft glow. Candles are another simple way to introduce a sense of relaxation to your space.

Make it minimal

There’s nothing less luxurious than a bathroom bursting with heaps of stuff. While it may be tempting to cram it all in, keep décor to a minimum in order to achieve elegance. This means being selective with ornamentation and décor, as well as sticking to a simple colour scheme. Choose two or three colours to work with and you’ll find the rest simply falls into place.

Be ready for guests

Stay cool, calm and collected by preparing yourself for guests. Having extra supplies like towels, soap, bodywash and hair products is a simple way to minimise stress, impress your guests and create a sense of luxury and tranquillity.
