How to Make Your Bathroom a Place Where You Enjoy Spending Time


For me, the perfect bathroom has an abundance of light, a fabulous bath and a powerful shower, a stack of freshly laundered towels and a collection of deliciously scented soaps and candles. Bliss. Make your bathroom a place where you enjoy spending time.

Take the time

A calm and organised bathroom can be a wonderful place to relax and gather your thoughts: a place to cleanse not only your body but also your soul. One of the most personal rooms in your house, it says a lot about your priorities. If your bathroom is a haven of relaxation you enjoy the process of grooming and presenting yourself to the world. What does it say about your life if your appearance means nothing to you?

Use your space

Because bathrooms are usually the smallest room in your house, you need to think of creative ways to keep your things together. Try tall, thin shelving units that can fit in the tiniest of spaces or shelving that fits over the toilet.

Sensory appeal

Make your bathroom appealing to the senses. Filled with great scents and textures it will be intimate and cosy. Baskets are a great way to keep your essentials grouped together and come in so many colours and shapes that you can find the perfect one for almost any use. I have a number in my bathroom and each one is filled with all the things I need for my grooming regime. I can quickly find anything I need and all the clutter is kept at bay.

Close to hand

When in your bathing area you should have everything you need within close reach. Make sure you always have enough shampoo and soap nearby. Clean towels should be on hand as you step out of the bath or shower and your bathrobe should be accessible but in a location where it can keep dry.

Soft and gentle

Indulge in your favourite products to refresh and invigorate you. Give your head a massage when shampooing. Apply conditioner to your hair and keep it on long enough for it to work. Always use moisturiser when you finish bathing – put it on while your body is still slightly damp and it will lock in the moisture.

Repeat performance

Before you leave the bathroom, quickly wipe out the residual soap and water from the bath or shower. It will make it a nicer experience when you use it next time. Hang your wet towels up to dry. Always put the caps back on anything you’ve used and check that the soap is not sitting in water. Make sure that you haven’t run out of anything; if you have, buy it today.
