4 Easy Ways To Keep Your Bathroom Looking Sharp This Winter

Without proper care and attention, your bathroom can become an icy netherworld of chilly tiles and frozen mirrors during winter. A room like this is somewhere to be avoided in the winter months - which isn’t ideal when designing a home that’s functional through the seasons. Adding to this, your decor can look a little ropey in the winter light, adding to the feeling of tiredness that some bathrooms can exude.

In this post we will share 4 tips that will help you transform your bathroom into a style sanctuary this winter, while also helping you to keep your home cosy as the nights draw in.

Perform essential maintenance

Before embarking upon a more comprehensive overhaul of the bathroom, you should take time to do some essential winter-time maintenance. This will involve getting rid of mouldy patches and sealing up some leaky pipes to make sure that it doesn’t grow back.

This kind of maintenance is especially important in winter, as mould tends to grow with a vengeance when it’s regularly cold and damp outside.

Once you’ve provided a solid base for the rest of your bathroom overhaul, you can start to think about other things.

Create a warm aesthetic

With the damp at bay and the fittings tuned to perfection, you’ll be able to scour your imagination for a new aesthetic for your bathroom. Some warm, festive colours will work well in winter - think rich reds and opulent purples. These shades can be incorporated into either a set of bathroom tiles to frame your shower or bath, or as a painted feature wall if your bathroom is on the large side.

Types of tiles you could use for a warm aesthetic depend on your personal tastes. For an escapist aura around your bathroom, opt for some Moroccan zellige-style tiles that will transport you to a Marrakech souk in mid-summer, even if you’re stepping out of the shower in mid-February. Alternatively, you could opt for some Victorian-style tiles to give the room a classy, quintessentially British air.

Upgrade your window area

Nobody likes a drafty bathroom, especially in winter. Sorting out your window can make the difference between your bathroom being a comfortable place to spend time and a terrifyingly chilly prospect first thing in the morning.

Of course, ordering some blinds will help you achieve this quite easily. Roller blinds will allow you to block out the worst of any draught, while Venetians will let a little light in. Your blind choice depends largely on what kind of bathroom you want, so browse away and you’ll soon find something to fit whatever aesthetic you desire.

You could even opt for electric roller blinds, so you can close them from the comfort of a warm bath - how luxurious!

Keep it in bloom

Houseplants can quite literally add a bit of life to any room, and there are plenty of plants out there that’ll thrive in the humid conditions of a bathroom. Aloe vera, bamboo and spider plants are all well-suited to a bathroom - even in winter.

Opting for a few floral flourishes for your bathroom is a quick, inexpensive way to breathe new life into the space - all you’ll need to do is remember to water them and they’ll soon be a verdant fixture of your bathroom for years to come.

Whichever way you choose to improve your bathroom this winter, be sure to add a dash of your own creativity to make the space truly your own. Once it’s personalised, a sharp-looking bathroom will look fantastic all through winter and beyond.
