Five Ways to Bring Summer into Your Bathroom

British summertime is here! Whether you’re planning a staycation by the sea or a
luxury break abroad, why not keep those ‘feel-good’ holiday vibes going with some
summer styling for your bathroom?

Here are five ways to let the sunshine in:

Upgrade your shower – Nothing refreshes on a hot day quite like a luxury shower. If your shower is more ‘damp squib’ than ‘dynamic’, consider investing in a high quality overhead or side shower.

Our Hansgrohe and Crosswater ranges comprise an array of cutting-edge showers, including models which switch the water jets from refreshing rainfall to vigorous massage at the touch of a button.

Go large! – European hotel bathrooms often incorporate large rectangular neutral wall and floor tiles creating a clean, contemporary backdrop.

Replicate this style in your home bathroom with large format wall tiles. They come in a huge
variety of styles and designs to suit every taste. Villeroy & Boch’s 60cm x 60cm Newtown
tiles are delicately patterned giving a beautiful aged appearance.

Think luxury hotel suite – Ever noticed how high-end hotels often feature the most beautifully designed bathroom suites? From crisp, white countertop basins and frameless glass shower enclosures to freestanding baths and subtle built-in lighting, everything is designed to feel effortless and extravagant.

Achieving this look is easier and more affordable than you think. Take a look around
European Bathrooms for inspiration on how to transform your bathroom into a personal sanctuary.

Bathroom decorating and accessories – If you don’t want to remodel there are subtle interior changes you can make to hold onto that post-holiday glow.

For a start, do away with any bathroom clutter. A new bathroom cabinet will hide a myriad of bathroom detritus, including bottles, potions and toothbrushes.

Or get creative with wall colours. Earthy reds and browns will bring Mediterranean warmth, while blues and greys will create a cool, coastal feel. For a touch of luxury, replace tired towels and shower curtains with new ones. Striking Aztec prints are bang-on trend at the moment and will lend a laid-back, eclectic feel to your bathroom.
