It’s easy to create a summer style bathroom with the wide selection of bathroom designs, furniture and accessories available in the marketplace today. There are some pieces that are just perfect for giving your bathroom a totally fresh look. One of my top recommendations for achieving a summery bathroom would be to have a gorgeous freestanding pebble shaped bath. With its organic shape, it hints at the ocean and if you team it with a sky-blue accent colour, either in your tiles or wall paint, you will almost feel the sea breeze inside your home.
But if your budget doesn’t stretch to a new suite, there are lots of gorgeous and inexpensive bathroom accessories that will capture the summer spirit and give your bathroom a fresh new look. Shop the high street for natural looking and tactile stone homeware, such as soap dispensers and toothbrush holders and add fresh marine blues in your towels and bath mat. The Purity range at Dunelm is great for this subtly nautical look. Woven bamboo or seagrass baskets are also perfect in the bathroom for storage, as well as really helping to convey that summery style – from larger laundry hampers down to small containers on the windowsill for cosmetics and hair products.
And you don’t have to stick with the tried and tested nautical tones to add that feeling of summer. Zingy, citrus shades can really enhance and warm up a cold bathroom, so why not add lemon or tangerine towels and accessories for a pop of colour? By including a fashionable hanging planter, too, you will tap into a tropical vibe and a feeling that is fresh, bright and fun. It’s not purely about the visual aspect either; you can trick your senses into feeling ‘summer’ even on a grey day with the introduction of some fruity-fragranced soaps by the sink and a sweet-scented coconut shower gel will always put you in a holiday mood.
