Everyone talks about cozying up their living rooms or bedrooms for the cooler months but what about the bathroom? It’s the first room we head to after getting out of our warm beds in the morning but it feels so cold and unwelcoming! And lets not even talk about those middle of the night trips… I usually just stay in bed putting that little trip off for as long as I can!
Luckily our bathrooms can be cosy and we can do this pretty easily while adding lots of style too. I’ve shared lots of ideas below and even if you pick one or two, you will feel a difference. Not only will your bathroom look and feel a lot cosier, it will look more stylish too.
How to make your bathroom feel cozy
add a rug
A rug will add instant warmth to your bathroom especially if you have cold tiles like most of us do. I don’t know why more of us don’t have rugs in this room! If not a rug, go for an oversized shaggy bathmat. Apart from bringing warmth, your bathroom will look more interesting too.
add a fabric shower curtain
If you use a shower curtain, avoid the plastic ones and go for a cloth version with a waterproof lining. I personally love linen shower curtains as the natural, relaxed feel of linen adds so much to a room. You get a lovely soft textured look and feel with linen.
add textured towels
Towels come in many different textures so this is an easy way to add more cosiness and warmth to your bathroom. Nothing says inviting like a pile of fluffy fresh towels! One of my favourite are waffle towels because they look stunning, they tend to dry quicker and don’t smell. Another fabric I love for towels is linen. So pick something you like and keep these towels on display for instant warmth and texture.
Not only do plants look great in a bathroom, they’ll make your room feel cosier. You don’t have to go crazy with plants but just one or two potted plants will go a long way. If space is really tight, you could opt for a vase with a few foraged stems or try some preserved greenery stems that last for years.
Wood adds warmth to any room and the bathroom is no exception. It doesn’t have to be something big but something like a small wooden stool (especially if you can find a vintage one) goes a long way. Alternatively adding things like a wooden towel ladder or some wooden hooks or wooden storage boxes can work well too. It’s about adding touches of wood where possible because with wood comes warmth.
add some seagrass or rattan
Rattan and seagrass are both great materials for adding warmth to a space. You could opt for some storage baskets which are also so handy for keeping things like extra towels and toilet paper or even to place a plant in. Alternatively, you could go for a rattan/seagrass laundry basket or a light shade.
If your bathroom is cold and lacklustre, try one or two of these ideas to make your bathroom feel cozy and more welcoming especially during those chilly winter months.
