On an average, a person spends 82 hours in the bathroom every year.

For most of us, the bathroom isn’t really a space to focus on decorating. But did you know, the bathroom is probably the best place to transform into a romantic and sexy space? Don’t look at your bathroom only from a bodily function perspective, think of it as a space where your partner and you can unwind, relax, and even get frisky!

Here are our sexy bathroom decorating tips that are sure to make your shower room more intimate and inviting.

To liven up the mood, do away with insipid colors and bring in sensuous ones. This will not only help you relax but also set the right mood. Choose hues that strike a chord with your partner and you. Think of tiny tiles in shower areas, and wooden planks or rugs in dry areas – a great way to add some texture too. Include some of your favorite flowers to get the evening rolling.

Has your partner recently been reminiscing a lot about your first date? Or the romantic getaway in the woods that you both took? Use that as a starting point to theme up your bathroom with relevant colours, prints, towels, and accessories. We love this botanical inspired wallpaper that immediately gives the bathroom a very whimsical feel. In Indian bathrooms, remember to use wallpapers strictly in dry areas. If not, opt for printed or custom-made tiles instead.

An ornamental life–size mirror serves two very important purposes. It creates an illusion of a larger space. But more importantly, it creates a very sensual dimension for your romantic escapades. If a floor-to-ceiling mirror frightens you from the maintenance perspective, not to worry, opt for a multitude of mirrors or go midway, and use a medium sized mirror.

4. Mood lightingBathroom decorating tips_scented candles

Nothing spells romance like a bit of mood lighting. For that special romantic date – deck up the whole bathroom with scented candles. You can also choose to install fairy lights at vantage points. Or better still permanently add a luxe crystal chandelier. Invest in some aphrodisiac aromas. The intent of the arrangement will not be lost on your partner.

5. Curtain callsBathroom decorating tips_shower curtains

Less is more. It’s time to bring that into play. Nothing like a slight tease before you both take a tumble between the sheets. Place curtains around the bath tub. Entice your partner into the bathroom. With the interplay of light and shadows and some sensual music in the background, there is no stopping you.

6. Accent chairsBathroom decorating tips_additional seating

If you have floor space, add a rug and an accent chair. A cozy seating arrangement is a great way to soften a bathroom. Not just that, it will also encourage more intimacy in the bathroom between the two of you. Let her soak herself up in the bathtub, while you keep her company. Top it off with some music and wine – could your evenings get any better?

Don’t be shy to make a few investments here and there – especially when it comes to decorating your bathroom. Spice up the ambiance through our sexy bathroom decorating tips and bring in some romance to an otherwise boring area of your house. Go ahead, and invoke the god of love!
