A man’s ideal washroom speaks to his grooming needs and personality. Do away with soft colours, feminine textiles and cosmetic storage and go for a practical layout with no-fuss masculine touches. We’ll show you how with some top tips.

If you’re planning to renovate or design a new bathroom from scratch, try to incorporate concrete finishes and wooden accents. Look for sharp shapes and raw edges for the benches and cabinets. These straightforward silhouettes and open plan layouts are ideal for someone who likes to be in-and-out of their bathroom quickly.

For a quick revamp on an existing bathroom, incorporate a few masculine fixtures. Matte black taps can elevate the shower to a sleek unit, whereas metallic highlights on mirrors and accessories can help create a gentleman's shaving zone.

Pick task lighting for precise shaving and incorporate ambient light for warmth. LED comfort units can accommodate both these functions well.

Consider following a theme for a precise, easy to follow look. Go nautical with navy pinstripes and boating accessories, or create a New York aesthetic with masculine ferns, bare windows and black trims. For the sports enthusiast, aim for industrial, locker room styling.

For the perfect finishing touches, choose sandalwood scents, classic towels and punchy framed prints or vintage posters that reflect his interests down to a tee.
