Comfortable yet Functional Bathroom Spaces
Scandinavians have mastered the art of creating bathrooms that not only look great but offer both comfortable and functional everyday uses. Did you know that Scandanavian design is based on three things:
If you’ve been browsing Instagram for visual inspiration, then you’ll notice that a lot of bathrooms that have taken on this design trend feature clean, clear lines, lots of white and natural colours and practical concepts and furniture pieces that maximise on all the available space in the bathroom.
Their bathrooms are also emphasised by a lot of light, meaning that if you want to achieve this style, you need to consider ways that you can increase the amount of available light in your bathroom. One way you can do this is with illuminated bathroom mirror cabinets.
Dark Interior Design
Whilst they are mainly known for their lightness and brightness, a popular trend in Scanadvian design is to have a dark and dramatic bathroom. Whilst this may sound broody and almost depressing, a dark bathroom can actually feel cosy, contained and organised.
You can easily incorporate this trend by opting for a darker paint colour for your walls or even choosing darker flooring options. You can even opt for darker wooden furniture with rustic accents for your bathroom, as this is traditionally Scandinavian.
If you feel this might be too overwhelming for your bathroom, you can always start small. introducing darker pieces into your bathroom, then work your way towards achieving that glamorous, dark bathroom.
Use Glass Tiles
If you’re looking for both popular and traditional Scandanavian interior design ideas for your bathroom, glass tiles are a perfect option for you. Ideal for those looking to create a light and airy space, glass tiles combined with light wood furniture can open up smaller spaces to make for a fresh and clean bathroom.
Emphasise the beauty of the glass tile by having minimal floral accents in your bathroom. This could consist of one branch of your favourite flower to add a decorative touch to your bathroom.
Place an illuminated bathroom mirror on the wall opposite your glass tiles. This will create a magical effect in your bathroom, with the glass tiles reflecting the clean, LED light coming from the bathroom mirror. This is a fantastic way of opening up even the darkest corners in your bathroom to make it feel much larger than it really is.
Incorporate a Touch of Blue
If you're a fan of clean and minimal decor, then the Scandinavian style will never fail to deliver. If you’re looking to add an accent colour to your bathroom whilst keeping in line with the Scandanavian style, we will always recommend adding a touch of blue to your bathroom.
You can easily implement this colour into your bathroom in a variety of different ways. For example, you can add basic bathroom accessories in this classic colour such as:
- Bath mats
- Shower curtains
- Fake flowers
These are cheap and effective ways to spruce up your bathroom with a bit of colour. Try and keep the accessories the same shade of blue if you can. This will create the essence of both organised and visually pleasing bathroom space.
If you’re looking to create a soft and delicate bathroom space for your home with Scandinavian influence, adding feminine designs and accents is ideal. You can do this by adding subtle decorative tiles to your bathroom walls.
You can add patterned tiles to the walls then continue the same tiles onto your countertops and sink surfaces. This creates a sense of harmony and continuity in your bathroom, a classic element of traditional Scandinavian bathrooms.
Combine this with light, white and natural colour tones throughout the bathroom to create a light and breezy space with delicate and feminine characteristics.
Super Minimal, Clean Lines
