5 pro tips to create a feel-good bathroom
First off, it’s important to distinguish between functional and harmonious lighting: Ideally, you can find both in one lamp. To evenly illuminate your face, the light above your mirror cabinet should be frontal and broadly diffused. Wall lamps to the left and right of the mirror are perfect for the job. For the bathtub, it’s best to go for soft, dimmable light that creates a relaxed atmosphere. Add glowing touches with hanging pendant lights.

Create the illusion of more light and space: Wall mirrors help distribute light and are an eye-catcher. The trend is moving towards round designs. Soft shapes help create a laid-back atmosphere. If you’re working with a light background, we recommend going for a framed mirror that creates a contrast to the wall and adds a nice touch. Combining different sizes makes for an interesting overall impression.

Add your personal touch to the walls: Along with mirrors, tiles are also a great way to put some life into your wall surfaces. Either replace your existing tiles or cover them with decorative tile stickers. Choosing the right grouting colour is also an important element. While a strong contrast will emphasize the shape, a similar shade will make the surface appear more uniform.

Let wallpaper rule your bathroom: Some types are humidity-resistant and can even be used in the shower itself. This kind of wallpaper is available in many colours and patterns – for unlimited creativity. If you don’t want to wallpaper your entire bathroom, you could use wall stickers instead.

Bring the cosiness of your living room to the bathroom: Compared to your conventional chrome accessories, wood creates warmth in the bathroom. A wooden stool combines visual and practical aspects. A wooden ladder is a great way to hang up hand towels. If you invest in colour-coordinated towels, there’s no need to hide them behind cabinet doors. Rolled up and placed on an open shelf or arranged in baskets, they look pretty and fill the bathroom with life.
