20% of Brits say a soak in the bath is their favourite time of the week and nearly a quarter go to their bathroom at least once a day solely to unwind.

New research commissioned by bathroom experts, Villeroy & Boch, reveals Brits are a nation of bathroom lovers.  
Brits spend an average of two hours a week – or one working day a month – relaxing in the bathroom, and nearly a quarter (23%) go to their bathroom at least once a day solely to unwind and relax.  20% surveyed said a soak in the bath is their favourite time of the week and 27% say a bath boosts their mental health.  Over a third (36%) say they have great ideas while in the bathroom.
The chance to enjoy some peace and quiet tempts 44% of the nation into the most private room in the house, highlighting the importance of creating a relaxing haven.

“Bathrooms are our sanctuaries, where we can close the door on the rest of the world and indulge in a moment of calm.  This can be enhanced by transforming your bathroom into a wellness oasis. Small changes from the colour of the walls to the lighting, can make a big difference in creating a relaxing environment.”


Fabrizia D’Autilia spokesperson for Villeroy & Boch 

Villeroy & Boch have 3 simple tips for transforming a bathroom into a wellness haven:


1. Use soothing colours 

Incorporating comforting colours such as wintry blues or serene greens into the bathroom helps create a soothing atmosphere.  To bring it all together, go beyond the wall colours and think about opting for tiles, textiles and artwork in complimentary restful colours.  For example, hang art pieces that reflect peaceful scenes, such as ocean landscapes or abstract art in calming hues.


2. Use lighting to create atmosphere  

Avoid stark white lighting when designing a bathroom. Where possible, ensure that the bathroom is bathed in natural light by adding windows or even a skylight. Where this isn’t feasible, consider adding lighting which can be customised to be softer. To do this, add dimmable ceiling lights or alternative forms of lighting such as within mirrors.

3. Bring the outside in

Focus on bringing the outside in by incorporating plants into the bathroom. Many plants thrive in the humidity of bathrooms. Alongside adding colour, they also add texture and interest to the bathroom and keep it looking lush and green as well as being a nod towards biophilic design.
