Four Fun Themes for Your Bathroom Makeover

When it comes to redecorating your bathroom, there are so many different options you can choose from. We often tend to focus on the specific features we want – for example, a spacious bathtub, power shower, or double sink – but having a great theme can be an effective way to tie the whole room together in style. Are you in need of some design inspiration? Here are four fantastic ideas to get you started. Remember, you can always put your own unique spin on them to create something that’s perfect for your tastes, requirements and budget.

1. Beach life

As a room that sees a lot of water use, the bathroom naturally lends itself very well to a beach or nautical theme – especially if you love the ocean. To achieve the right atmosphere, think about using distressed wood, wave patterns, striped motifs, and so on. White, cream or sandy gold all make good base colors, and of course, you’ll want to include different shades of sea green and/or blue. Seashells, anchors and ocean creatures can all be cute and quirky additions, but be sure not to go overboard with them or the room will look like a cliché. 

2. Spa vibes

Bring that relaxed spa feel into your home by transforming your bathroom into a sanctuary of calm. You’ll want to use neutral colors like white and gold, plus elegant materials such as marble for that hint of luxury. The good news is that this theme, like all others, is achievable even with mobility-friendly bathrooms thanks to the availability of bathroom aids in all styles to suit your decor. Be sure to include some scented candles and bath products to round off the look, and also enable you to recreate the spa experience for yourself whenever you want.

3. Enchanted forest

For something a little more unusual, why not go for an ethereal forest vibe? A brilliant way to achieve this is through the use of real plants that thrive in a humid environment, for example, moisture-loving ferns. These are great for improving the air quality, boosting your mood, and reducing stress levels. Don’t worry if you don’t have a green thumb – many of them are very easy to care for. Other options include the use of natural wood furnishings, plus plenty of different shades of leafy green. Finally, candles will add an extra touch of magic to the air by mimicking a campfire, starlight, or anything else your imagination can come up with.

4. Travel adventures

Travel has long been a popular theme for home renovations, and with good reason. You could choose to focus on one particular city or country that you love (regardless of whether you’ve actually been there or not), or round-the-world travel more generally. For example, you might like to hang up a world map (perhaps with pins to show all the places you’ve been to), use vintage suitcase images or postcard art, or include some personal mementos from your own past vacations. 

That way you can mix up the design every time you come back from a trip!
