Whether you have to share your bathroom with others or are lucky enough to have one all to yourself, the best thing is being able to turn it into your own personal sanctuary. Here we can share a few ideas to help you in creating the perfect feminine bathroom.
Choose Your Colours
Pink is widely thought of as the most feminine of colours and if this is right for you then the colour choice is an easy one. There are so many shades of pink on the market from a delicate baby-pink to a loud bubblegum pink so choose carefully before painting the entire room in the same hue, unless that’s what you want of course! If pink’s not your thing then look at other pastel shades such as peach, lilac, lemon or sky blue. Whichever colour scheme you choose, try to vary the tones between the decor and the accessories to avoid overwhelming colour saturation.
Inject a Little Vintage Glamour
Scour antique shops and retro markets for items such as decorative full-length mirrors or pretty glass bottles and jars for your bath toiletries. Antique metal shelving looks wonderful if you have the space. Pretty cabinets and practical storage spaces are a must.
A freestanding bathtub on Victorian style claw legs with freestanding vintage style bath taps is the ultimate in feminine glamour. Team classical fitments and furniture with vintage curtains for windows and shower plus sumptuous rugs. Then add gorgeous-smelling candles and plants or fresh flowers to bring tranquillity and beauty to your bathroom.
Accessorise, Accessorise, Accessorise!
Nothing spells feminine more than lovely accessories and nothing more so than soft, fluffy towels. Buy the best quality you can afford and they will not only look good but will last for years.
Choose Careful Lighting
Banish the solitary lightbulb in the middle of the ceiling and go for mood or LED lighting instead. LED colour changing downlights can set and enhance the mood whilst casting a subtle glow. Reserve the brightest lighting for your make-up mirror and choose recessed lighting for the rest of the room. For the ultimate in girly bathrooms, a string of fairy lights around a mirror frame can look exceptionally pretty. A beautiful chandelier can turn the most ordinary of bathrooms into a classical haven.
Whether you prefer vintage or contemporary bathroom style the emphasis above all should be on comfort and relaxation so fill the room with your favourite books, magazines and music.
