It’s fair to say that bathrooms often aren’t seen as the manliest of locations in the home, but that doesn’t mean men can’t have some design input.
In fact, in the case of the bachelor pad, the bathroom can be one of the most important rooms. So if you fall into the ‘bachelor’ category and you’re looking to create a masculine haven of bathroom goodness, we’ve got just the thing. Below is our quick-and-easy guide to creating a manly and masculine bachelor pad bathroom, without breaking the bank.
Start with the aesthetic
While the term ‘aesthetic’ may sound a little daunting, all it really means is ‘style’. The aesthetic you choose will be a natural reflection of your personal tastes, so you don’t need to feel bound by convention or the way other bathrooms look. Want to go for black sanitaryware with glimmering chrome taps? No problem. Or how about a wooden theme throughout, from the bath panels to the sink podium? Easily done. Use the internet to do a little research and you can easily find ideas about the interior style you’d like for your bachelor bathroom.

These are those little thingsthat really bring a bathroom to life.
