Express Yourself: Add a splash of personality to your bathroom

Turning a standard bathroom into a personal oasis is an art form. Often overlooked as merely a functional space, bathrooms can sometimes feel a little cold and impersonal. But, by integrating thoughtful design choices, it’s possible to infuse personality and warmth to create a space that speaks to your style.

From the choice of fixtures to the selection of colors, textures, and materials, the bathroom holds untapped potential to create a room where you feel immediately relaxed and at ease. To achieve this result, it’s essential to consider the craftsmanship of the fittings, as well as finding a cohesive design that feels true to you.

Join us as we explore both practical and creative ideas that can turn your bathroom into a true sanctuary - a place that resonates with your identity and provides a sense of tranquillity and comfort.


Your Bathroom's Signature Style

Fixtures & Fittings

Elements like the faucet, tub filler, and shower head are central design pieces that set the tone for the entire space. As you select styles that complement each other, the fixtures and fittings act as the connecting thread, tying together the overall design and theme of the bathroom.

 For those who enjoy bold statements, clean lines, and geometric shapes, a square faucet shape like the Square Single Hole Faucet will set the scene for a contemporary, sleek, and minimalist bathroom design. Or, for a more traditional style, our classic designs, like the Classic Shower Set with its charming apron-style head, create a timeless, vintage aesthetic.

Customisable Design

Going beyond shape and style, exploring the different finishing options for your bathroom elements is another way to express yourself through design. At Artos, our faucets, tub fillers, and shower sets are fully customizable in matte black, brushed nickel, chrome, and satin brass finishes.

Brass and nickel, with their golden tones, exude a warmth that enriches the ambiance, while in contrast, chrome, a white metal, presents a stark and sleek appearance. For a bold choice, matte black is ideal for those aiming to create an industrial or utilitarian feel. Its versatility allows seamless integration, enhancing rustic or vintage-style interiors while complementing contemporary settings.

For a truly personalized design, our intuitive shower controls are now available with a dual-finish option. These stunning controls combine two of our most popular finishes – the richness of satin brass with the bold character of matte black – offering a distinguished solution for those seeking a bathroom design that uniquely reflects their personal style.

The Power of Color

Choosing the Right Color Palette

Color is a powerful tool in crafting the ambiance and personality of your bathroom. The color palette you choose will undoubtedly influence the overall mood and atmosphere of the space. If you want your bathroom to be a calming spa-like oasis, look for tranquil tones like pale blues and gentle lavenders. Or, for an energizing and uplifting vibe, add a touch of drama with shades like navy blues, emerald greens, or warm terracotta tones. 

Additionally, neutrals like soft greys, warm beiges, and creamy whites provide a versatile backdrop that can complement various design styles, offering an opportunity to play with accent colors through accessories and decor.

Creative Tile Designs

Tiles are not just a practical necessity but an artistic opportunity to infuse character into your bathroom. Innovative tile designs and patterns can transform the space from ordinary to extraordinary. To add visual interest to walls or floors, consider experimenting with geometric patterns like herringbone or Moroccan-inspired shapes.

Mixing and matching different tile sizes and textures is a great way to create a dynamic and visually captivating backdrop. For a touch of classic elegance, consider subway tiles or intricate mosaic patterns. Don't shy away from bold tile choices – they can be the defining feature that injects personality and a unique charm into your bathroom space, making it distinctly yours.

Finishing Touches

Life & Vibrancy

 Introducing plants and greenery into your bathroom is a great way to breathe life into the space. Not only do plants add a touch of nature's freshness, but they also infuse vibrancy and a sense of tranquility. Selecting suitable plants for the bathroom is key - consider low-maintenance options such as aloe vera, snake plants, or ferns that thrive in humid environments.

Try hanging plants or placing them on shelves and countertops to soften the overall look of the space, bringing a natural element that harmonizes beautifully with the sleek lines of bathroom fixtures. The purifying and calming effect of plants is sure to enhance the overall ambiance of your bathroom.

Textures and Materials

There’s nothing more idyllic in a bathroom than luxurious textiles, plush towels, and soft mats. Opting for sumptuous, quality materials is vital not only to create a sense of comfort and ease in a practical sense but also to elevate the style and mood of the space. Be creative with the colors, design, and textures you choose, as these can help add depth and character to the space.

One particular element that combines functionality with both texture and material is the addition of a heated towel dryer. At Artos, we’ve designed towel dryers that offer a visual and tactile appeal to the bathroom experience.
