A cosy bathroom might seem like an oxymoron, thanks to the chilly tiles and drafty frosted glass windows that sometimes turn your bathroom into an ice palace that is avoided at all costs. 

This post aims to change that presumption, and present the bathroom as a cosy room fit for wintertime relaxation - a world away from the bitter winds and frosty mornings outside...

Create a Cosy Atmosphere

It seems trite, but candles really do add an air of cosy indulgence to a bathroom, no matter the season. However, with the nights drawing in, there’s more darkness to work with for sumptuous after-work soaks in the bath, with plenty of scented candles burning away.

Combine this with a bath bridge tray where you can hold a tablet playing a movie, or a glass of champagne, and you’ll be well on your way to cosy bathroom bliss - just don’t linger for too long, lest you get cold!

Overhaul Your Colour Scheme

A classic, white, tiled bathroom can often feel a little sterile, especially in the chillier winter months. Upgrading to a warmer, more indulgent colour palette may be the way forward if you’re looking to create a truly cosy bathroom this season. Luxe shades like deep, regal purples or warm terracotta hues are always popular and will add welcome warmth to the space.

Alternatively, you could opt for a bathroom tile overhaul - a luxurious Victorian-style pattern could add a dash of throwback glamour to the bathroom, while warm Mediterranean-style tiles could evoke a sense of escapism that’ll take you miles away from the bitter British winter.

Such cosiness will mean the days of dashing into a warmer room post-shower will be long gone. You’ll saunter out of your piping hot, winter-ready bathroom in style, swaddled in freshly radiator-warmed towels. What could be better than that?!

Make It a Room to Linger In

Bathroom radiators are often overlooked, but they should form an integral part of any winter-time bathroom overhaul. A chrome bathroom radiator with plenty of space for warm towels will mean that getting out of the shower will be a much easier process, especially when combined with a luxurious bath mat.

Curate a Gorgeous Aroma

Regular cleaning in the bathroom is obviously essential, but going the extra mile and giving your bathroom a bespoke aroma that reflects your personality will really transform the space into somewhere you’ll want to spend time in.

Such a smell revolution can be done very simply by purchasing a diffuser or some potpourri and popping it on the windowsill - giving you a gorgeous yet subtle fragrance that’ll last far longer than an air freshener.

Whether it’s a vanity mirror or some eye-catching ensconced LED lights, making your bathroom dazzle will add to its warmth and cosiness - as well as giving you a bright wake-up on those gloomy winter mornings!

Let There Be Light!

Adding light in various ways is the key to livening up winter in just about any context - and let’s face it, a gloomy winter bathroom isn’t a fun place to be. Whether it’s a vanity mirror or some eye-catching ensconced LED lights, making your bathroom dazzle will add to its warmth and cosiness - as well as giving you a bright wake-up on those gloomy winter mornings.

Better yet, a dimmer switch could be a savvy addition to this lighting setup, to transform an invigorating morning bathroom into a chilled, bathtime-ready relaxation station once you’re home from a hard day at work.

There are few things more indulgent than a cosy bathroom during the winter. Follow these tips, and add a dash of your own creativity, and you’ll be relaxing in your very own winter-ready bathroom in no time!
