Create a hotel feeling in your bathroom

The bathroom is becoming increasingly prominent as a haven for relaxation and recovery in our households. It serves as both the starting and ending point for the day, but often falls short in terms of aesthetics and atmosphere

Considering the importance of an inspiring bathroom with a beautiful design, we are increasingly prioritizing this space during renovations and new builds. A prevailing trend in our homes is to create a bathroom that radiates a hotel or spa atmosphere all year round.

Evoke a spa feeling

There are many different approaches to achieve that luxurious hotel and spa feeling in the bathroom. But to begin with, it's good to let style and uniformity permeate your renovation. When it comes to materials, for example, it is very common for hotels and spas to use the same material throughout the room. If you don't want to cover your entire bathroom in the same stone, you can, however, achieve the same feeling by combining a stone type and another material that goes in the same shade as your stone.

To build on the hotel feel, a roof shower or massage shower can be an option to consider. These create an immediate feeling of luxury, and if you also invest in beautiful glass walls for your shower instead of hanging a shower rod with a curtain - the feeling is further enhanced. If you have a lot of space in your bathroom that needs to be filled, a tip is to get a modern bathtub and then place it somewhat centrally but also independently in the bathroom. This will maximize the feeling of being in a spa and there are few things that communicate exclusivity like minimalism and purity of style.

The right lighting for the right mood

Regarding creating a hotel feel with the help of lighting, it doesn't have to be more difficult than having several possible light sources and dimmers on these to be able to lower the brightness and increase the feeling of being in a peaceful and quiet spa.

Uniform decoration for a cohesive look

Consistency in the decor plays a decisive role in achieving a hotel-like bathroom. In hotels, uniformity extends to walls, floors, ceilings, sinks and shelves, often complemented by neat and simple decorations. Introducing a contrasting color or material can create exciting visual interest. Incorporating natural materials such as wood, rattan, linen and hemp has been a trendy choice, which resonates with the spa's aesthetic and enhances the overall hotel feel.

Luxurious textiles and thoughtful choices

Soft terry towels, strategically placed and well presented, add to the hotel's ambiance. Matching bathrobes and slippers further enhance the experience. Maintaining uniformity in choice of materials and decorations is of utmost importance.

Adding greenery to create peace and quiet

Incorporating plants not only enhances the aesthetic but also promotes a peaceful atmosphere. Choose air-purifying plants if the bathroom has enough light. Alternatively, small cut flowers or cuttings in a vase can be placed on surfaces such as sinks, shelves or the edge of the bathtub.

It's all in the details

When it comes to creating a hotel feel in your bathroom, a lot takes care of itself through a renovation or refresh of surfaces, functions or installations. However, a large part of the final finish is in the details. It's about making the interior uniform, placing scent sticks or candles and moving the cotton swabs and pads from the boring plastic packaging to a stylish storage solution of its own that matches the rest of the bathroom. It doesn't have to be more difficult than that, and if you still feel unsure, the best inspiration is actually to be found at a hotel or spa in your hometown.
