How to create a Japandi bathroom

What do you get when you mix Scandi materials with Japanese minimalism? Answer: Japandi. And your bathroom can get in on the trend, too. So if you’re ready to create a zen sanctuary, read on for our tips.



1. The feeling’s natural

Japandi style is all about light, natural materials - think pale woods and cane. So accessorise with rattan planters in different heights, and bamboo pieces like the Espa bath mat to tap into those natural vibes. Treating yourself to an at-home spa day? Go for a wooden bath bridge. Candles and wine, anyone?


2. Softly does it

Textures can bring warmth to any space - including the bathroom. So embrace those hygge feels by investing in a cosy bathrobe and towels - we love the fluffy and heavyweight Narinada set in neutral putty. And treat your feet to a super soft landing when you hop out of the shower with a pure cotton bath mat.


3. Select minimal storage

The Japandi trend has its roots in minimalism, so it’s time to banish the clutter. Stash away your toiletries in a sleek cabinet and hang that new towel collection on a bamboo rack or caddy. Lacking floor space? Then opt for a storage mirror instead.


4. Sleek lighting = key

The right lighting can make or break a space. As this look is all about softness and simplicity, go for a matte black wall lamp with a frosted shade. It’ll bring a subtle shine to your beauty routine. And if you really want to emphasise that Japanese aesthetic, go symmetrical by placing one on either side of your mirror.
