With winter nipping at our heels, the desire to be inside in warm, cosy spaces is strong – and our bathrooms should be just as appealing as any other room in the house when it comes to channeling those vibes. If your bathroom needs a spruce-up ahead of the colder months, or you’re simply ready for a refresh, then here are some ideas on how you can breathe new life into it this season.
With the trending styles for the year’s end centring around everything cosy, calming and cocooning, key colours include rich jewel tones with warming vibes, along with soothing natural shades. Basically, if it enhances your mood during the dark winter months and has an energising effect, then you’re on the right track.
Enrich your interior with warming colours
Starting off with those jewel tones, think everything from rich emerald greens and browns to burnt oranges and vibrant blues, if you want to add a little extra colour to your space. Burgundy and similar damson-like shades are also on-trend for the autumn-winter, these berry-coloured tones working well alongside warming ones like brass or gold.
The Josef Martin Roxbury Floorstanding Reeded Vanity Unit and Pebble Worktop is made from robust, moisture-resistant MDF and has a rich maroon tone which fits in with the jewel-themed colour palette this winter. Designed for use with a countertop basin, it comes complete with a pebble solid-surface worktop and a wide drawer for storing away toiletries. The drawer also has a ribbed design which adds texture and visual interest to the piece. Perfect for adding a pop of vibrant colour to your bathroom or for incorporating into a wider new bathroom design, this is a great choice all-round.

Another vanity which embodies the winter colour trend is the Josef Martin Urbano Wall-mounted Two-drawer Vanity Unit and Slimline Double-bowl Basin, which has a striking green tone.
Paired with brushed brass taps, wastes and handles, the combined look is one which subsequently combines both the calming hues of nature with the warming effects of the brass. A slimline double-bowl basin is also inset into the unit, making it a great shared vanity for two people.
If you want to create a luxury look and combine a fabulous bath with a rich, warming brown tone which will work well with a variety of décor, then the Elementa Ayda Freestanding Bath in Metal-effect is ideal. This stunning studded bath has a rustic vibe which will look great within a Cottagecore environment, although it can equally elevate a more neutral bathroom.
Double-ended, for bathing at both ends, the Elementa Ayda also has a contrasting white interior and will ensure a relaxing bathing experience throughout the winter and beyond.
When it comes to tiles, then the Onyx Turquoise Polished Rectified Tile is an inspired choice, with its bright turquoise-blue tone shot through with gold and white marble-effect veining. With an opulent look and a smooth, gloss finish, this large-format tile will instantly elevate your bathroom, creating a stunning feature area around your vanity unit, or it can be used throughout the bathroom for an eye-catching design. The rectified edges also mean that it requires minimal grouting, which gives it a refined look with clean lines and adds to the overall effect of making the space appear larger.
Embracing the slow-living trend and giving your bathroom spa-like vibes will ensure that your winter bathroom is just as inviting as your summer one. Another way to achieve this is by introducing wood – whether you opt for wood-effect tiling or simply add something like a wooden bath caddy, such as the Viktor Benson Bamboo Bath Caddy and Bath Board in Bamboo.
Introducing details such as brass fittings in the form of basin and bath taps, as well as lighting, wastes and other items will further weave in those warming tones and bring your design together to create a cohesive look. Brass also complements a wide range of tones, including the greens, blues and berry-coloured shades which are very much ‘in’ this winter. These colour schemes will also work well into the future, so they won’t easily date, especially if you incorporate them into feature areas or add them as pops of colour.
Mirrors are another easy way to bring some extra visual interest to your room, as well as being a practical feature. A brushed brass mirror such as the Brushed Brass Round Frame Mirror with Colour Change is one example of this – and you can also benefit from the additional features of LED lighting and a heated demister pad which prevents the glass from steaming up.
When it comes to achieving a winter bathroom that’s more thrills than chills, then adding in texture alongside those warming colour tones will also help to create a more welcoming space. Think plush bathmats and rugs, combined with other elements such as cosy, ambient lighting, wall-mounted towel rails and underfloor heating.
No matter what you’re planning, whether it’s a full bathroom revamp or simply adding in some new elements to your interior, there are lots of ways to create the winter bathroom of your dreams.
