Unexpected additions to your bathroom

Unexpected additions to your bathroom

When it comes to design, the possibilities are truly endless and nothing is off limits if you are brave enough to explore new ideas and concepts.

For many of us, our bathroom is a space we retreat to when we want to kick back, relax, and forget about the worries of the day. However, when it comes to bathroom design, many of us tend to opt for function over style. But who said that you had to compromise?

There are plenty of fun and unexpected ways to bring your bathroom space to life, transforming it into a room that exudes character, personality and, most importantly, style!

We’ve complied a list of some of our favourite unexpected additions to your bathroom that are sure to turn heads, for all the right reasons of course! We hope it inspires you to think outside the box to create a home that reflects your individuality.

Unexpected furniture

Like any room in your home, it’s up to you how you fill and decorate your bathroom. And it’s often the case that, when you think outside the box, you are able to create the most appealing, attractive and functional rooms of all.

Aside from the typical units, cabinets, and fixtures that populate your bathroom, why not integrate a bookcase, dressing table, or piece of lounging furniture? This will instantly make your bathroom feel more like a luxurious spa. A comfy upholstered chair is a great option!

Of course, if you are considering incorporating a bookcase into the design of your bathroom, you need to ensure that the space is well ventilated and that you have an enclosed shower cubicle.

Think outside the box when it comes to lighting

Your bathroom is a space where you wash, groom, and get dressed, so it’s important that your lighting is able to meet your requirements.

But, rather than opting for traditional spot lights or low-key lighting, why not think about integrating dramatic chandeliers, high impact fabric lamps, or even pendant lights? This will not only inject character and intrigue into your bathroom space, it will also create striking focal points within the room.


When it comes to the décor of a bathroom space, many people opt for tiles and leave it at that. But why not add a whole new dimension to your space by including your favourite artwork? This will enhance the overall look and feel of your space, especially if you opt for a bold, colourful and vibrant print.

If you have a large feature window, thick, luxurious curtains are also a great way to create an intimate relaxing atmosphere! Think lavish regal colours and dramatic curtain ties.

Your favourite mirror

Step away from traditional mirror designs and think cool, fun, and funky. A mirror is a familiar sight in bathroom but this doesn’t mean that it needs to blend in with your existing décor – far from it…

Think about mirrors that exude character and personality, these can create a striking focal point that is both ultra-stylish and practical!
