Designing your bathroom - furnishing ideas for the bathroom
As a wet room, the bathroom is a key area where you usually start the day with your daily hygiene. As a central living space, the bathroom deserves special attention, as its potential is often not fully exploited.
With the right bathroom furnishing ideas, you can transform even the standard wet room into a cosy wellness paradise. Below are some practical tips and ideas to upgrade your bathroom furnishings in style and just as you want them.
Harmonious bathroom colours
Putting your bathroom decor in the right light
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Creating attractive storage space
Bringing a bit of nature to your bathroom
Using plants to decorate your bathroom instantly upgrades the space and makes it feel more homely. Green plants with firm, smooth leaves such as palms, ferns, Monstera or ivy are ideal for bathrooms, while certain orchids also do well in the warm, humid surroundings. If your bathroom has no windows, or gets very little daylight, perhaps you have a socket free for a special plant lamp? Or alternatively, simply fill a simple glass vase with cut flowers and place it in the bathroom. You can even turn to deco plants made of plastic, wood, paper or textiles to bring the illusion of nature to your bathroom.
Making the best use of walls and floors
Other than that, you should keep the floor as clear as possible, especially in small bathrooms. It is advisable to hang cabinets or other furniture on the wall rather than standing it on the floor – this also makes cleaning much easier. Sideboards and shelves at head or hand level provide space-saving storage and offer clear structure, order and overview.
