If you have an oversized bathroom, you probably know just how lucky you are. So many people struggle with tiny bathrooms that barely have enough space for the basics. But, having an over-sized bathroom can also come with its own set of decorating decisions, such as how to furnish it.
So, how do you fill up a large bathroom without making it feel too busy?
With the right furnishings, you can make your large bathroom appear spacious, yet inviting, and highly functional. Here are some ideas for attractive and practical furnishings for an over-sized bathroom:
A comfy armchair could be the perfect place to relax in your robe after applying a face mask or as you wait for the tub to fill up with warm water. From a loveseat to a chaise lounge, vanity bench, stool, or an armchair, there are plenty of seating options to choose from. Think about the material and color you’ll choose so that it fits in with your color and decor scheme. Seating can be a perfect way to add a pop of color in the form of a luxurious crimson chaise lounge or a stool painted in a fresh green.
2. Armoire or Bureau:
You can never have too much storage in the bathroom. Consider adding large cabinets, a bureau, armoire, or a linen closet to the room. Not only will this provide practical space to store towels, sheets, and bathroom products, but it can also be a beautiful feature in your bathroom. How about an attractive modern cabinet or an antique bureau or armoire?
3. Large Vanity:
Since you have a spacious bathroom, you can afford to use the space on a large vanity. A double sink vanity is a great choice that will make your morning and evening routines a bit easier if more than one person uses the bathroom.
Large potted plants can be a great addition to your large bathroom’s decor. Some bathroom-friendly, moisture-loving plants include bamboo, begonias, Chinese evergreen, ferns, and the snake plant. Place these plants strategically to fill in some of the empty spaces.
5. Freestanding Tub:
A freestanding tub can be a unique and attractive way to make a big visual impact in your large bathroom. A dramatic shape or design, such as square, bowl-shape or the vintage claw-footed design can help the tub really stand out.
6. Large Shower Stall:
In addition to a tub, you may also want to indulge yourself with a large shower stall. You might even opt for a wet room that holds both the freestanding tub and the shower in a glass enclosure.
Choose a Focal Point
When it comes to design and the layout of these furnishings in your over-sized bathroom, there are several considerations. One option is to choose an item that serves as the main focal point to draw visual attention to within your bathroom. Whether it’s a gorgeous freestanding tub, luxurious chaise lounge, or a spectacular vanity, this focal point should really stand out.
Get in the Zone
Another option is to organize the space around several zones, each with their own, minor focal point. One area might be the vanity, which features a bench, mirrors, and a storage cabinet while another area could be the bath, surrounded by plants and a small stool.
With this inspiration and guidance, you can now decide which furnishings to add to your wonderfully large bathroom. Then, when you selectively put the right furnishings in place, you’ll find it to be more inviting, unified, comfortable, and functional.
