Does your en-suite bathroom feel empty and cold? While large can seem luxurious, all that extra space can be hard to fill, which results in a lot of extra space and not a lot of warmth. Easily make your large bathroom feel cozy by doing these six things.
1. Add corner cabinets.
In the same way bathroom vanities offer storage space, corner cabinets give you another discrete place to keep goods. While this is great for organizing toiletries, cleaning supplies and paper goods, the extra piece of furniture in the room will also make the space feel more complete.
2. Incorporate color.
Monotone color schemes can make a room look bigger — which is the opposite of what you want. There are many ways to incorporate color into a larger bathroom like painting the walls or choosing a colored tile for the floor or shower.
If you prefer a clean look over colorful, try using color as an accent instead. Paint only one wall a bright color or choose a tile design that mixes colors and neutrals. The splashes of color will help break up the room without being overpowering.
3. Include bathroom furniture.
An armchair or bench can bring peace and calm by inviting you to come in, sit down and relax. Those that like to indulge in a little R&R, like applying a weekly DIY facemask or painting their nails, will appreciate the lounge seating and spa-like atmosphere. Place your bathroom furniture in the corner of the room, against a blank wall or next to the bathtub.
4. Perfect your lighting.
Lighting is one of the easiest ways to enhance a room. Get inspiration from simply stepping out your front door. The bright, natural light during the day is what you should try to mimic in your bathroom. Color temperature and Color Rendering Index, are different ways light is measured. When shopping for bathroom lights, mention you are looking for a temperature near 3000K or a CRI above 90. This will create the effect you are looking for.
5. Shy away from modern elements.
Most modern design elements focus on space efficiency — recessed cabinets, wall mounted bathroom vanities and wall hung toilets. If you are trying to make a large bathroom feel more cozy, shy away from these contemporary styles. Go for more traditional bathroom vanities and cabinets, which will do a better job of filling space.
6. Strategically place bathroom rugs.
Use rugs to break up floor space in the room. You can place smaller rugs in front of bathroom vanities and tubs or showers, or choose a larger style to keep in the center of the room.
Selecting an interesting design or color can also help to make the room feel cozier and more like home.
