Show your bathroom some love

four flirty ideas for the space

avatar of Samantha Gibson

Fifty Shades of Grey is one of THE most hotly anticipated films of the year. The raunchy plot - with a sweet love story at the centre of it - made the book an instant hit. If you think your décor is lacking passion, there are lots of lovely ways to take inspiration from the novel in your home.

One of Ana and Christian’s first encounters took place in his bathroom. We all enjoy the fantasy of romantic interiors, but in reality, many of us are guilty of neglecting our ‘smallest room’ despite spending a considerable amount of time there.

Whether it’s a refreshing shower to start the morning, a relaxing soak in the evening - or a raunchy tryst at midday - it’s important for our surroundings to set the right mood. If your bathroom is in need of a little TLC, here are four fab ideas to transform it into a flirty space.

1. Select striking shutters

Shutters are fantastic for ‘shutting out’ the outside world… Perfect if a private retreat is the order of the day. Our clever water-resistant Henley collection has been designed specifically with humid conditions in mind. Team your new dressing with floral wallpaper to create a romantic mood.

2. Wow with Wood Illusions

If you love the classic appeal of Henley shutters - but your budget doesn’t quite stretch that far - our Wood Illusions range is a brilliant alternative. The beautiful blinds combine the natural elegance of wood with the practicality of metal. And they’re ideal if things get a bit steamy!

3. Choose ravishing Rollers

Wetrooms can sometimes look a little plain, but it’s easy to introduce a hint of pattern. Here, we picked out a Roller blind featuring a delightful damask design - called Lomas Taupe - for an exotic yet elegant feel. Add candles for an intimate atmosphere and voila, the scheme is complete.
