• Five Ways To Fill Your Bathroom With Hygge

    Jun 12, 2019

    Hygge, pronounced ‘hoo-gah’, is a Danish way of living which usually refers to a warm and cozy lifestyle. It's a huge decor trend, too -- think candles, chunky throw blankets and glowing fireplaces. Sounds pretty amazing! Everyone can use a bit of hygge in their life. Timbercreek Communities has five tips on how you can fill your bathroom with hygge.

    Matching Shampoo Containers

    Hygge is all about creating the perfect cozy ambiance. A simple hygge-inspired bathroom upgrade could be to switch your shampoo and conditioner containers for matching dispensers. Etsy has some good options and you can pick between glass, plastic or ceramic -- depending on your style. It might not seem like much, but it’s all about the little details when it comes to hygge.

    Add Teak To Your Shower Floor

    Simplicity is vital for a hygge lifestyle. Something as simple as adding a teak shower floor can add some texture and luxury to your bathroom. Consider getting a wood or bamboo floor. They look stylish and are often very affordable. By using rustic and natural materials you can create a very serene space.

    Reading Space In Your Bathtub

    Another way to add hygge to your bathroom is to create a relaxing reading space in your bathtub. Add a wooden bath rack -- it’s a great place to rest your cup of tea, a book and a few candles while you bathe. It’s the perfect set-up for at-home relaxation after a long day.

    Add Fragrance Or Make A Small Home Garden

    A pleasant scent is key to creating a relaxing ambiance. By adding some essential oils or scented candles, you can set a calm mood and make your bathroom a more comfortable and pleasant place to be. Try the reed diffuser by Saje -- it'll have your bathroom smelling like a spa! You can also add plants -- an easy way to make your space feel fresh and inviting.

    Incorporate Dreamy Towels and Furniture

    If you want to create a cozy and welcoming bathroom, add fluffy textures. Touch is an important sense to stimulate in the hygge lifestyle. Look for thick and high quality towels and a soft bathrobe -- pick neutral colours that are easy on the eyes. Keep a warm pair of slippers in your bathroom -- they will come in handy after a long, hot bath. If you have the space, you can even add a stool or bench and cover it with sheepskin for ultimate comfort. The goal is to make your space a place that you never want to leave!

    FIlling your bathroom with hygge can instantly improve your sense of wellbeing. Timbercreek hopes these suggestions help you create a relaxing bathroom space that makes you feel relaxed and happy. To find your home with Timbercreek Communities, please visit our website.
