Warm up your bathroom this winter

Warm up your bathroom this winter

The bathroom is commonly known as the coldest room in the home – but it doesn’t need to be.

Bathroom Butler recently spoke to Joseph Throssell from Michele Throssell Interiors for some great ideas on how to warm up your bathroom this Winter:

Organic Elements

Adding organic elements into a bathroom can make a space feel warm and soulful, however, it is important not to oversaturate a small bathroom with too many finishes. According to Throssell, “The golden rule is to never add more than three organic elements in a bathroom.” An ideal organic element is a bamboo plant that does not require as much maintenance during the chilly season.

Brrr it’s cold outside    

Stepping out the shower on those chilly mornings and cool winter evenings is not something you look forward too. Get yourself some new big fluffy towels to wrap around yourself after your steamy hot bath or shower that have been dried on one of Bathroom Butler’s Heated Towel Rails.    

Cosy up your bathroom

There is nothing worse than stepping out a warm shower or bath onto a cold tile with your bare feet. Show your feet some love with a cosy rug – remember the thicker the thread, the cosier the rug. Use warm colours as suggested by the Pantone 2018 Winter colour palette to ‘heat’ up the bathroom.

Mix materials:

Throssell favours, dark hues, greens and bonze as popular materials for the bathroom this Winter. “Add handmade tiles, weathered bronze accents or Matt Black bathroom accessories for a wonderfully striking organic feel. “Decorating and designing a bathroom is a time to be creative and inventive, but first one must make sure that a bathroom is functional. Although, the ergonomics are imperative when designing a bathroom space, where you draw inspiration from is equally as important, says Throssell.”
