(Any excuse to buy some posh soap, right?)
I’ve come up with a great way to dream up guest bathroom ideas. Just imagine what you would want and need to have when staying over at a luxury hotel, for example. I’m talking cotton towels, aromatherapy or plush robes. Add anything that comes to mind to your guest bathroom checklist.
Now: let’s help you refresh your guest bathroom and make sure you have all your basics sorted. Here are six quick and easy updates. Bonus: they won’t break the bank.
Let’s take a look, shall we?
Guest bathroom ideas for a truly luxe experience
Firstly, shop for luxurious new towels
This small update can transform the whole trip for your guests. Swap your old tired face cloths, hand and bath towels for glamorous new cotton ones. Make sure they’re soft to the touch and pleasing to the eye. In addition, why not purchase new cotton robes to complete the retreat-like experience? Your family and friends will feel snug and cocooned in them as a result. It’s the little details that make all the difference.
Secondly, buy handy mirrors
Aside from brightening up the space and giving the illusion of a bigger room, mirrors are a must-have addition to any bathroom. Especially if they include LED lighting, as then they’re perfect for doing your makeup in the morning or prepping your night time routine. They come in a variety of styles, sizes and shapes. Choose from grand Renaissance-inspired designs to ultra-sleek with smart features. There’s a huge range, so you’ll definitely find one to suit your scheme. As an alternative solution, pop a magnifying mirror on the vanity unit in case your guests need it when getting ready.
Thirdly, think about comfy rugs
Be honest: is there anything more annoying than stepping out of a hot shower or relaxing bath onto a cold floor? I think not. So why not add that extra layer of comfort to your guest bathroom with a soft and fluffy rug? Choose one that matches your bathroom’s aesthetic, or go bold with a statement design.

A must-have: spa-like toiletries
We all love a good shampoo and conditioner combo, paired with a hydrating hair mask. Then there are bath bombs for a bubbly soak, or a really effective scrub to leave skin baby-soft. Prep these bathroom essentials ahead of your guests’ arrival, and put them on display on a vanity unit or on an open shelf or shower nook.
Treat your guests with relaxing aromatherapy
Essential oils, stylish diffusers and soy wax candles – you name it, I love it all. And yes, I do consider these to be guest bathroom essentials – after all, they leave your space smelling fresh and add to the spa-like feeling. Pop a diffuser near the basin or add one on top of your wall-mounted cabinet for an even distribution throughout the room. And don’t forget to accessorise your bath with candles for the ultimate relaxing experience.
Lastly, refresh your soaps and holders
Hygiene comes first, so upgrade your soap dish and dispensers with new chic and practical solutions and pair them with a good anti-bacterial soap that also smells divine – bonus. You could go for matching jars to store bamboo buds and cotton pads, which will always come in handy, as well as decorative boxes for tissues and extra toilet paper.
