Bathscaping is the new buzz word in the world of interiors… but what is it?

You may have heard of tablescaping before, the art of styling a table in a certain way to suit a particular style or event to ultimately make it look aesthetically beautiful. But what about bathscaping?

What is bathscaping?

Bathscaping is all about styling your bath area to create a haven of relaxation that is both stylish and functional. Put together a bath scheme that ensures your must-haves are at arms reach and is an environment that inspires you to totally unwind and relax.

Style it up

Create your bathscape by starting with the basics. Rather than having your bath mat on the floor, drape it over the bath to add texture and pattern to your space. A bath tray is a must for a successful bathscape, especially if you’ve opted for a freestanding bath that doesn’t have ledges to display objects on. No matter your interior style, plants are a must in a bathroom to make your scheme feel more alive and in touch with the outside world.

Investing in a bath tray is a great place to start if you want to style up your bath area. Accessorise with a flickering candle, sprigs of eucalyptus and of course a glass of your favourite tipple! Remember, a bath tray is also a great place to display your attractive bath products to keep things cohesive.

Be inspired by this boho bathscape by Matalan. A rustic wooden stool is the perfect piece of furniture to accompany your tub and is the perfect place to display your favourite towel, mirror and bath accessories. Incorporate a beachy/outdoor theme by picking up some beach-themed ornaments or motifs.

Keep it minimal

If you’re more of a minimalist that cannot deal with any clutter in a bathroom then you can still create a stylish bathscape. Keep things minimal by investing in key accessories to bring personality to your bathroom. A good quality basket to store your towels in, a Scandi-style bath tray and a matching dispenser and tumbler set are a good place to start.
