7 Ways to Create a Luxurious Bathroom
Of all the rooms in our home, creating a luxurious-looking bathroom seems to be the most challenging. There isn’t much that luxurious about a bathroom is there? But making a few changes in the way we decorate and spend our time in the bathroom can make a world of a difference.
We have come up with 7 ways to create a luxurious bathroom that will transform the whole aesthetic of this once never thought of room in your home. Extravagant bathrooms, here we come.
It’s all about the lighting.
First, among the best ways to create a luxurious bathroom is the lighting! Lighting is key. And for the bathroom, it’s all about mood lighting. The best way to achieve some bath-worthy, mood lighting is by using overhead lighting.
An incredible way to achieve this is by replacing your typical ceiling light with a chandelier. To amp this up, switch out your bulbs with warm light. This will create an atmosphere perfect for relaxing and winding down after a long day. Plus, it’s part of your décor!
Add some art.
It’s important to personalize your space in order to make it your own, even the bathroom! As one of the best ways to create a luxurious bathroom, we always like to suggest hanging some art.
Give your guests something to look at. And while you’re taking a shower, you’ll feel nice and homey. Adding an accent to your walls with some artwork is a great way to incorporate your own style into this small room without looking too out of place. Just because it’s your bathroom doesn’t mean you can’t add your own personal touch to the walls.
Display your favorite skincare.
Another great way to make your bathroom look like your own is by displaying your favorite skincare items. This is one of our favorite ways to create a luxurious bathroom because it’s functional and aesthetically pleasing.
Of course some skincare looks better on display than others, but this trick is best used for functionality. Our favorite way to display these items is on top of a mirrored centerpiece or plate. It gives the display a clean and chic feeling without being too loud. Plus, it adds a bit of texture to your décor.
What’s on display in our bathroom? So glad you asked! We almost always have displayed on our countertops. Not only because it’s luxurious skincare, but because the packaging matches our bathroom aesthetic perfectly. You can always count on their being on display. It’s too extravagant not to set out for all your guests to see.
You will also find on our mirrored plate. With its brown glass packaging, it fits in great with our décor, and best of all, our skin loves it. We also like to add a few nail polishes to our skincare dish to have our touchup color on hand. Right now, our toes are coated in in the shade (the ultimate summery orange.)
Try some seating.
If you’ve got enough room in your bathroom, we always suggest adding a chair or two. You would be surprised how practical having seating in your bathroom can be. Plus, it adds some extra décor to your space without having to put much thought into it.
A seat in your bathroom can be used to prop your leg on to shave, to sit on when you moisturize, to have a companion stay with you while you bathe, to pull up to your vanity while applying makeup or skincare, the list goes on and on. This can range from a stool to a bench to a full-blown couch. Once you have extra seating in your space, you won’t ever want to go back. Seating is one of the most practical ways to create a luxurious bathroom.
Brighten up your color scheme.
Keeping the color scheme bright and cheery colors helps a small room look bigger than it is. And when we think luxurious, we think spacious. If you’ve got a big window in your bathroom, be sure to let as much light in as possible.
For curtains, keep it as sheer and as airy as possible. For paint, stay within the neutral shades. And for décor, add a few accent colors to liven up the feel. For the majority of your color choices, we suggest keeping it simple and bright. This is one of the best ways to create a luxurious and spacious-feeling bathroom.
Another way to make your bathroom appear larger is by adding mirrors. Let’s face it, the majority of the time you step foot in your bathroom is to look in the mirror. Why not make that easier by adding a few more?
Mirrors are some of our favorite pieces of décor, as you can tell by our skincare display tip. They add dimension to the room while remaining functional. Even adding a full-length mirror in the corner of your bathroom will open up the room a bit. Find a mirror with a frame that matches your color scheme and your luxurious bathroom is almost complete.
Don’t neglect your curtains.
To conclude our favorite ways to create a luxurious bathroom, we have to mention the importance of curtains, and not just for your windows! Of course curtains are great for the windows, but we’ve already covered the fact that we’ll be placing flowy, sheer curtains to allow light in.
We also want to buy a curtain rod and curtains for in front of the shower. Most showers these days have glass doors, which look great, but they take away the fun of having a shower curtain. Instead, we’re going to place a regular curtain rod in front of the doors and drape each side with flowy, flirty curtains to give it some dimension and texture. Once they’re hung, your extravagant bathroom is complete!
