With inspiration from the Mediterranean, Spanish-style bathrooms are the hottest new design trend — and you don’t want to miss out
Spanish-style bathrooms, known for their rich colors and intricate tile work, offer a warm, inviting atmosphere commonly found in Mediterranean homes and warm weather locations. Drawing inspiration from Spain's diverse history, these bathrooms blend Moorish, Mediterranean, and modern elements to create unique and vibrant spaces.
Here are some ideas to bring the essence of Spanish design into your bathroom, making it one of the most authentic spaces in your home.
Vibrant Tiles and Patterns
One of the most distinctive features of a Spanish bathroom is the use of colorful and artistic tiles. These tiles, often featuring geometric or floral designs, add a lively and artistic touch to the space. Consider using these tiles for your bathroom floor and walls, or as a backsplash behind the sink to make the room bright and inviting.
Earthy Color Palette
The Spanish bathroom typically involves a warm and earthy color palette. Think terracotta, deep reds, oranges, and yellows, complemented by soothing blues and greens. These colors can be incorporated through wall paint, tiles, or bathroom accessories. Bright walls in these hues create a cozy and welcoming ambiance that reflects the sunny landscapes of Spain and is often seen in Mediterranean houses.
Wrought Iron Accents
Wrought iron is a common element in Spanish architecture and adds a rustic charm to the Spanish bathroom, reminiscent of old Spanish villas. Incorporating natural materials is also essential. Use really warm woods for cabinets or a vanity, and stone for countertops or sinks. These materials add texture and warmth, creating a connection to nature.
A large, luxurious bathtub is a staple in many Spanish bathrooms, serving as the centerpiece of the room. Freestanding tubs, particularly those with ornate designs, add a touch of elegance and a dreamy feeling.
Add more plants for a touch of greenery, use decorative pottery for storage, and include plush towels and rugs for comfort. These small touches will tie the entire design together, creating a Spanish bathroom that’s a functional and beautiful retreat with an eclectic feel.
Incorporating these specific characteristics into your Spanish bathroom can transform your space into a warm, inviting oasis filled with the charm and character of Spain's rich cultural heritage, different from other styles.
