If you’re looking for an interior project to take on this autumn and winter, tackling the bathroom could be a good thing to do to create a relaxing space where you can unwind.
But it can be difficult to know how to break away from the typical clean aesthetic with lots of white and a very functional approach.
The Irish Times has recently offered some advice on how you can go about revamping your bathroom this year. One option is to go for a splash of colour, which can make a “strong style statement”, the newspaper noted.

The newspaper suggested introducing a statement mirror, pot plants or even soft furnishings like a comfy chair that you can relax in after a soak in the bath.
Another suggestion that may make your bathroom feel more homey and a more pleasant place to spend time beyond just showering is to include a small bookshelf in one corner where you can store essential reading material for a long soak in the tub.
