The bathroom is a room we all have in common. No matter where we are or what we’re doing we need a bathroom to maintain a clean and healthy lifestyle. Whether we’re bathing, showering or answering nature’s call, the bathroom is a place we all visit every day.
In fact, it’s been found that the average Brit spends 22 minutes in the bathroom every day, which equates to nearly 450 days across the average lifetime. So, we reckon more is happening in the bathroom that meets the eye!
We’ve collected some fun ideas on activities that can occur in the bathroom. Let us know your thoughts!
Binge watch. With streaming platform such as Netflix regularly making seasons of awesome programmes, it’s dead easy to binge watch while in the bath using your phone or tablet.
Tune in. Keeping the tunes going while you wash or listening to your favourite radio station or sports coverage couldn’t be easier with bathroom-friendly radio sets. Hang them in the shower, perch it on the side of the bath, they’re widely available and some can even be built into your bathroom walls.
Sing. An oldie but definitely a goodie! Belt out your favourite tunes in the shower and enjoy your own bathroom karaoke music.
Treat someone. Nothing says ‘welcome home’ more than a bubble bath, candles and a glass of wine or a cup of tea. Woo your other half or just be nice to your parents!
Be cool. Fill the bathtub with ice and beverages to keep your party or barbecue guests going. And the age-old Halloween tradition of bobbing for apples works perfectly in the bathroom. Set up the bobbing station in the bath and award points to whoever fishes out the most apples in under 60 seconds.
Help yourself. Taking time out and relaxing in the bath is an excellent opportunity to indulge in a spot of reading that can teach you a huge range of skills and techniques; or escape in the pages of a really good story.
Get creative. It’s well-known that many of us come up with new ideas in the shower or bath. Take the opportunity and have a long soak or shower and dedicate some uninterrupted thinking time to whatever needs your attention.
Spa away. Create your own spa in the comfort of your own home. Get the steam going, use some essential oils and indulge in some therapeutic treatments.
Do it for charity! Bathing in beans or slime is a popular way to raise funds for a good cause; although you may want to think about doing it in a paddling pool instead!
Upcycle. Upcycling is all the rage, and by turning your old bathtub into an awesome armchair or a funky, rustic tub for flowers in your garden, you could save a ton on furniture and give your home a facelift too. Using old materials from your bathroom, such as shower curtains, you could also craft vintage or retro bags. Get more upcycling ideas here.
Boost your property value. Replacing old, tired and unfashionable bathroom furniture with modern suites will boost the value of your home and, if you’re looking to sell, will also appeal to prospective buyers.
