With Christmas fast approaching, it’s not just your living areas that can benefit from a festive makeover – your bathroom suite would look great with a few seasonal touches too. From towels to soap, there are plenty of options to inject a little bit of Christmas magic into your bathroom so have a look at these suggestions and let us know what you think.
Everyone wants to have a clean and fresh smelling bathroom and that’s where festive scents come in. Not only is pine one of the main ingredients of most bathroom cleaning products, but you can also invest in a couple of scented items that will add even more of a festive fruitiness to your room. How about choosing a spiced air-freshener for the festive period or lighting a cranberry and cinnamon scented candle when you sink into your bubble bath?
Simply changing a couple of your usual products in the run-up to Christmas can make your bathroom more festive. Try using a sweet cinnamon bubble bath, or choose a festive bath bomb to make your soak even more luxurious. There are plenty of Christmas hand-soaps available in the shops at the moment, so choose one with a cute festive bottle and a gingerbread scent to bring a touch of festive fun to anyone who visits your bathroom during the season.
Invest in a couple of festive coloured towels to hang in your bathroom during the Christmas period. Guests will appreciate the effort you have put in, and it will help them to feel more festive in your home. Another accessory that is often over-looked is the rubber duck, and we’ve seen a few snowman and Santa ducks around this year (even a duck nativity set!) so it’s a good idea to head to the shops and buy one or two seasonal bath toys. The little ones will thank you for it as it will make bath-time more fun over the coming month.
We’ve already talked about scented candles, and lighting a few candles in your bathroom will increase the festive ambience of the room, making each bath you take even more relaxing and magical during the Christmas period - perfect for unwinding and de-stressing after a long day of Christmas shopping! Choose candles with a festive patterned holder, or sit tea-lights inside a lantern with cut-outs which will project a glittering night sky onto your bathroom ceiling as you chill out in the bath.
Obviously we don't mean put a Christmas tree up in your bathroom (as lovely as it would look). But a few practical ways to incorporate your Christmas decorations into your bathroom would be by hanging a wreath on the door or bathroom wall, hang baubles on the handles of your vanities or place some Christmas ornaments on the window sill and shelves. Just try to place decorations in places they can't get broken or soaking wet. Have fun getting creative!
