How to create a ‘Her’ Bathroom

I was interested to see the “His and Her” bathroom reveal on Sunday night on The Block. Renovating bathrooms can be overwhelming if you have never done one before let alone renovating two at the same time. Designing a bathroom that would appeal to each of the opposite sex can also be a daunting task. I think all teams did really well and Bec & George and the Twins deserved to win.

 

Here are my thoughts on what should be included in the ULTIMATE ‘Her’ bathroom.

  1. Lots of space on the vanity. A tiny vanity bench won’t cut the mustard for any woman. The vanity needs to have room for hair appliances, hair tools and accessories, beauty products and any décor accessories like a vase of flowers.
  2. Lots of storage space to house all the above hair and beauty products and more. How many women can relate to purchasing a beauty product and then leave it sit on the back of the shelf?
  3. A deep spa bath to relax in after a long day. A free standing island bath can make a bathroom look more like a day spa and I don’t know any woman who doesn’t enjoy the aura of a day spa.
  4. A bath shelf to keep beauty products and wine within easy reach.
  5. A foot rest in the shower to shave ones legs.
  6. A hand shower with different control pressures to massage aching shoulders or clean shower walls and screens.
  7. Basin mixers so they can be flicked on easily to wash away beauty products from hands and face.
  8. A big mirror. A woman needs to see her décolletage to ensure her make-up has blended in well and make sure she looks good.
  9. Natural light. A skylight or large window is great to allow natural light in when applying make-up.
  10. Not too light neutral tile colours should be used to camouflage hair and make-up powder. Bright tile colours can work too to give the bathroom a feminine edge.
  11. A Chandelier, Elegant Lamp or Hollywood Glamour lights (but not both). Every woman needs to feel like a movie star or princess in their bathroom. Hollywood lights = movie start appeal, Chandelier = lighting made for a princess
  12. Hooks for hanging up outfits.
A freestanding island bath and wooden shelf can make a bathroom the ultimate girly retreat.
