Winter is the ultimate season for everything cozy and warm, or as the Danish like to say, Hygge. With nights much chillier and the days shorter, most of our time after work is spent indoors, and because of that, we want our homes to be as inviting and warm as possible.
The bathroom is the perfect place to start when making your home for cozy for the winter, because the bathroom is the one room in the house where you can stand or sit in very warm water, taking away your chill from the day. The bathroom should be a sanctuary of ambient lighting, peace, and quiet. It is where we come for that all important ‘me time’, and where we spend our quiet moments. If you are looking for a way to upgrade your bathroom for maximum coziness, here’s how you can do it.
If you have the space in your bathroom, the first thing you might want to consider is accommodating for a larger bathtub or shower enclosure. Click here to see a range of large, roomy glass shower enclosures. Imagine yourself coming home at the end of a stressful day, running a soothing bubble bath, and sinking into what feels like a never-ending pool. A larger bathtub is great because you have more room to really stretch out and relax your tired muscles.
Fill Blank Spaces
If you seem to have a large, blank section of your wall in the bathroom, you might want to consider filling that space with a mirrored storage cabinet, a piece of art or some small shelves. This way you don’t have a bare, boring space in your room that serves no purpose. Plus, if you place some shelves on the wall you can place some small cacti for color and tealights for soft lighting as you sink into the tub.
Add Your Personality
Most people will go for white tiles or neutral brown tones for their bathroom, and although that’s great, it can get a little bit boring. Add a splash of personality to your bathroom by placing a single row of small colored tiles between the white ones. It could be bright blue, rich red or even gold- whatever you choose it will lift the whole room and make it feel much cozier when you spend time in there.
Soft furnishings don’t just apply to the living room, they are also present in your bathroom. Purchasing some new, fluffy towels and a shaggy bath mat will make you feel much cozier and warm as you step out of the shower or bath. It will also add a lovely element of texture and color to an otherwise blank space.
To really make your bathroom feel like a spa retreat, you might want to upgrade the lighting. Instead of a conventional light fitting, switch up for some LED spotlights with a dimmer switch for when you want to soak in the tub. You could even buy some fairy lights and turn them on instead for softer lighting and an uber cozy atmosphere.
