As the Bathroom Experts, SONAS Bathrooms spills all the trade secrets on decking your bathroom out for the season ahead.



Start with Colour

Colour is a great way to start planning out the style of your bathroom. The colours you choose will significantly influence the mood and atmosphere of your bathroom, so it's important to make careful decisions when it comes to your colour choice. Three of the most popular colours that we see pop up over winter would be shades of green, festive reds, and winter wonderland white.

  • Shades of Green: An obvious one, but shades of green can help steer your styling in a winter direction. Regardless of your palette, green is an extremely versatile shade that lends itself to nearly all colour palettes.
  • Festive Reds: When you think of red, there's a good chance you think of Christmas. Particularly with plants and figurines you'll find a lot of ways to incorporate these vibrant shades into your bathroom space. Towels are also a great way to add a winter-touch to your space, with many Elf and Santa-themed bath mats in-stores.
  • Winter Wonderland White: A classic for a reason, white is a shade that is versatile for decorating and goes with more traditional bathroom spaces very well. Consider adding fake snow, miniature snowmen figurines, cosy fur bath mats, and even a snow globe or two for optimal winter styling.

Think of adding these colours throughout your space for festive Christmas Bathroom feels that will get you in the Christmas mood. Think of some alternative ways to decorate with these colours, be it through greenery such as everyday household plants, through bathmats, towels, coloured accessories or even coloured candles. With these elements you’re well on your way to creating a dreamy winterscape in your Christmas bathroom.



Lighting and Candles in your Bathroom, Transform your space to a cosy retreat.

Lighting and Candles

Lighting and candles offer the perfect ambience for the winter months. Now that the evenings are drawing to a close and the days are growing shorter and shorter, lighting is one way to brighten up your mood. This time of year it's especially important to create bright moments of peace throughout your home and candles can help you achieve just that. As well as offering ambient lighting, candles also involve your sense of smell. There is nothing better than the scent of cinnamon or pine to get you in the festive feeling - especially when it comes to bath time!

Back to the subject of lighting: adding LED lighting that will reflect your space, adds a spark of ambience and comfort back into your home. Be careful though on the lighting you choose! SONAS LED Lighting is certified for zones 2&3 in your bathroom – make sure you check what lighting is suitable for each zone in your bathroom to make sure your products are safe to use in this high-humidity environment.



Textures and Textiles

Cosy and cute bath mats will make one of the most drastic changes when it comes to bathroom designs for winter. One of the first things that catches your eye when you step into your bathroom is the bath mat. The more colour and cheer your bath mat evokes, the more your mood will be lifted when you step into your bathroom. Don’t be afraid to get a little playful with these décor elements – after all they’re just a bit of fun!

The same can be said of your towels. Some may opt for the classic combinations of greens, reds, and whites, as mentioned earlier. Others might lean towards creating a lively snowy sanctuary that would make Buddy the Elf jealous. Whether you prefer a minimalist or maximalist style, your cosy towels and festive fluffy accessories can bring that Christmas-time-charm to your bathroom!



Festive Favourites

Creating a cosy winter space through accessories is important. But the products you add to your space can be just as important. Yes, candles and coloured towels can be cute, but adding little winter elements through the soaps and bath products you use can be just as indulgent. Gingerbread body butter, candy cane soap, Christmas themed bath bombs, snowflake shower gels, – all these things will evoke a sense of seasonal spirit in your space, helping you and any guests who use the bathroom to get into the festive spirit.

Don't feel like you need to stick to set decorations in your space either. Just because a pillow was made for your living room doesn't mean you can't add it to your bathroom. Utilising the space available to you, and creating cosy moments that suit your needs is what styling your interiors is all about. Your bathroom space is unique to your home so don't be afraid to make it your own.



Don't Forget the Tree!

What says Christmas other than a Christmas tree? No, we’re not talking about getting a full-grown tree for your bathroom, we’re talking about the many alternatives that will work, especially when it comes to smaller-space bathrooms. Little tree figurines, ceramic ornaments or miniature wooden tree cutouts can add a lot of charm to your bathroom space.

Over the years we’ve seen it all – and when in doubt or struggling to find space,  why not swap out any framed artwork with Christmas-inspired images that get you a green tick on the big man’s Christmas list.



Festive Wall Frames

On the topic of festive wall art here is another great option to look at for Winter Bathroom Styling. We always recommend checking the materials used for bathroom frames. Moisture can warp wooden frames, so consider alternatives like plastic or ceramic, which are more durable in high-humidity environments.

Trees, snowmen, reindeer, the options are endless when it comes to Festive Wall Frames. Feel free to go wild with your festive bathroom wall frame and use this as a tool for adding festive spirit to every wall in your bathroom.
