Out of all the rooms in the house, I believe that the bathroom is one of the most important. Why? Because it’s the place where you go to relax and unwind at the end of a long and hectic day, or at least, I do. When I’ve had a busy day at work, I love running myself a bubble bath complete with candles, mood music and some of my favourite aromatherapy oils burning. If I really want to treat myself, I’ll also add a glass of prosecco to the mix.


When it comes to my bathroom and its design, I took inspiration from spas. You see, spas always look and feel so tranquil yet stylish, which is exactly the kind of vibe I wanted my bathroom to have. In the lead up to my bathroom’s overhaul, I spent months pouring over bathroom design ideas on Pinterest and in magazines. So when it comes to sharing tips for designing the most amazing bathroom, I am well versed on the subject.


Want to know how you can design a bathroom that’s beautifully stylish and elegant, and that also has a spa-like tranquil vibe to it? Then read on for all my top design tips!


Get inspired


While I can tell you what types of bathrooms I like, I have no idea what kind of bathroom you like, so I would always recommend taking the time to get inspired. Don’t rush into a design if you’re sure about it – bathrooms are expensive so it’s vital that you love the design that you opt for. If you’re stuck for ideas and need some professional advice without breaking the bank, I would recommend that you get affordable & bathroom design & fitting services from Harrogate bathroom showroom. The team are friendly and there are so many designs to choose from, so there’s sure to be an option that’s a good fit for your bathroom design needs.


Take the shape of the space into account


Not everyone is blessed with a large bathroom, which means that sometimes you have to get a little creative in terms of what you can do with the space. I myself have a small bathroom, so I know all too well the struggles that come with smaller spaces and bathroom design. However, what I have found with my own bathroom design experience is that if you keep the colour palette light and opt for a minimalist design for your bathroom, you can make much more of even the smallest of spaces. Don’t forget to utilise every space that you have, such as wall nooks and corners, for instance – these kinds of spaces are ideal for putting shelving on.


Keep it classy


I find that the thing I love most about spa design is the classy feel used throughout. I wanted to incorporate this into my own bathroom, so I opted for features that I felt had a timeless look to them, such as a claw-footed bath, an industrial-style shower, and a ‘his and hers’ sink. Try to stick to a combination of neutral and natural shades for the colour scheme, so white, cream, grey, sand, beige, seafoam blue and moss green. If you’re desperate to incorporate a little splash of colour, stick to pastel hues.




For me personally, I found that adding a selection of accessories to my bathroom really made the space. Although I prefer minimalist spaces, I also like having a few simple accessories dotted around. I added a soap dish and toothbrush holder to my sink, a toilet roll holder and bin by the loo, and a pot plant on the shelf behind the toilet. I find that for affordable but luxurious-looking accessories, The Range and B&M are fantastic.


So there you have it, a guide to how to design a more beautiful bathroom that is both stylish and elegant.
