From a self-cleaning wet room to bath tub gadgets for guys and stylish storage solutions, we can help you create the masculine low-maintenance retreat you’ve always dreamed of.
Walk in to your wet room
Put down those rubber gloves and embrace the wonders of a self-cleaning, low-maintenance wet room. Ideal for the modern man who has little time for scrubbing a bath tub squeaky clean, a wet room is a practical yet stylish solution.
Completely watertight, you’ve no worries about leaks – whether you decide to install a shower screen or not. The design can be as elaborate or as minimalist as you desire, and they’re suited for those with a small or large space. You could also install a bath tub if you have a spacious room.
Another bonus is that a wet room is an ideal space to wash your pets without trying to cram your furry friend in to a bath or shower. Browse our wet rooms to find the ideal one for your bathroom space.
Create manly mood lighting
Whatever style of bathroom you choose, you’ll need good lighting to be able to show it off! Whether it’s wall, cabinet or ceiling lighting, it’ll create the finishing touch to any bathroom.
Most of us love a long soak in the bath to change our mood – it’s a time to relax and indulge – and with the help of mood lighting, it will certainly help you switch off. So as well as brightening up your bathroom, clever lighting could give your man-cave just the cosy feel it needs.
Simplistic Scandinavian style oozes masculinity
Scandinavian style is simple, clean and calm – the perfect combination for a bathroom designed for relaxation, and ideal for a man-cave. It’s a growing trend and fortunately, it’s easy to create the look.
The colour scheme is traditionally white from top to bottom, perhaps with a splash of black or grey for a more masculine finish. Wood and stone textures will give a warm feel to the bathroom accompanied with natural shades to accessorise. You could also add some green plants for a spa-like feel. The polished porcelain Pimlico range offers Nordic inspiration.
Top to bottom black tiles
Black tiles are timeless, and they’ll certainly give a sophisticated finish to your man-cave for many years to come. Whether you choose from a matt, gloss or mosaic finish, tiled horizontal or vertical, they’ll complement perfectly any white bathroom suite.
The monochrome theme oozes masculinity but if you do want to add a flash of colour, consider tiling one row or column with a contrasting brighter colour for maximum impact.
Keep your man-cave looking clean and sharp with stylish storage solutions. If you don’t want the world to see your wide range of face creams and body moisturisers, try investing in some stylish storage to keep them hidden from the prying eyes of visitors.
From traditional free-standing oak cabinets to contemporary vanity units, tuck away your bathroom treasures with storage that compliments your colour scheme and style.
Alternatively, if you want to show off your collection, arrange them on top of your worktops or on exposed shelves where they can stand proud.
Tune in to the soaps while you’re in the tub with your own waterproof TV and enjoy the indulgence of a five star hotel in your very own home. Why shouldn’t you soak like a king in your man-cave?
When the show has finished, you certainly won’t want to step out of this bubbly paradise onto cold tiles, so keep your toes toasty with underfloor heating. It’s fast becoming an affordable and essential luxury for the bathroom and throughout the home.
Make your man-cave one to be admired! Give it personality and remember those finishing touches, and you’ll have a bathroom that’ll be both practical and really on-trend.
Disclaimer: Once your luxurious man-cave is created, we advise you to warn friends and family of your expected lack of attendance to social situations. Soaking in such luxurious surroundings can lead to men spending prolonged periods of time bathing
