Far from routine, bathrooms offer a sanctuary within the home to escape to and unwind in at the end of a long day. Similar to a day at the spa, the bathroom can also provide that peaceful space away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. All too often, however, our bathrooms can become disorganized and untidy, filled with toiletries, bottles and heaps of damp towels - and suddenly are not as inviting as they should be!
However, with just a little bit of work, it may not be as difficult as you think to achieve that spa-style bathroom you’ve been longing for. There are a number of things to consider when replicating that spa-like environment – both on an aesthetic and practical level. Here at Edelman, we’ve teamed up with Crosswater London to write this blog post, which we hope will inspire you to create the bathroom of your dreams.
Choosing the Right Color Palette
In terms of style, one of the most important things to consider is your choice of color, as this is key to achieving the right mood. It’s important to keep your space a clean, neutral and calm environment to create a truly relaxing ambience. Therefore, it’s a good idea to stick with neutral shades, as they won’t dominate the room – white, creams, greys and soft browns are all good options. Choosing luxurious brassware and accessories, finished in sumptuous colors such as brushed brass or matte black, can also quickly transform your bathroom. Add natural materials, like wood or bamboo, to give your bathroom that instant spa appeal. Pops of greenery can be brought into the design with houseplants, wall art and botanical touches.
Maximizing Storage Space
The key to an organized looking space is to utilize clean, simple lines and, on a more practical level, ensure that it is a clutter-free zone. This allows you to think clearly and promotes wellbeing, similar to being in a spa. Ensuring that you have smart bathroom furniture and cabinetry is vital in helping you to achieve an aesthetically pleasing and tidy space.
Crosswater London’s MPRO Bath furniture range in the Driftwood finish is the perfect choice if you’re looking to bring natural textures and colors into your scheme. Its wall-hung design offers a clean, streamlined look and MPRO drawer organizers make the most of your vanity space. There’s also lots of opportunity to display your storage in attractive ways, by using glass jars to store cotton pads or earbuds, for example. Wicker baskets are also a clever way to store items, such as soaps and towels, as they look great while also adding to the theme of natural textures.
A freestanding bath is the ultimate style statement, especially when aiming to replicate a spa-like environment at home. Luxurious, indulgent and elegant, a bathtub creates a beautiful focal centerpiece and is a key feature in helping you to relax at the end of a long day. For example, Crosswater London’s Balthazar Bathtub, with its striking Gold Exterior, exudes elegance and sophistication – making it the perfect addition for a spa-style bathroom!
Brassware & Finishing Touches
Finally it’s time to think about those all-important finishing touches. Items such as brassware and accessories are often the last thing to be chosen when designing a luxury bathroom, but they contribute to the beauty, function and overall look and help to tie everything together. Crosswater London’s traditionally styled Waldorf brassware works beautifully when used across all areas of the bathroom - we recommend combining it with a marble surface or traditional herringbone tile for a harmonious finish.
Interior design elements, high-quality bath furniture, luxurious finishes and ambient lighting combine with natural colors and textures to create a peaceful, mindful spa-like environment. Making the most of natural light, green plants and a neutral color palette, along with calming scents and soothing sounds will all help to create a peaceful and relaxing environment. Tranquil, elegant and surprisingly versatile, a spa-like bathroom design will bring warmth and relaxation to your home – a statement bathroom with maximum impact.
