The Best Bathroom Accounts To Follow On Instagram
You’ve got the products, now get the space to match
The bathroom may not be the most glamorous room in the house – for the most part, it’s a space in which we have to spend time in rather than choose to. But despite this, it’s still one of the most visited, so it pays to put a bit of effort into getting it right. The smallest of design touches (and, of course, the right products) can make all the difference. From copper or brass fittings to a statement bath, a well-designed space will become a joy to spend time in rather than a chore you want over as quickly as possible. Whether you’re looking for an upgrade or just a bit of bathroom-based escapism, these five Instagram accounts offer up plenty of inspiration.
Style: The aesthete
Jealousy regularly enters the fore when scrolling through Instagram, but hits its peak when stumbling across accounts like Mr Essentialist. Alexander Atkins, who runs the page, lives in a warehouse loft apartment of dreams in New York’s Lower East Side, with the bathroom to match. The marble-clad, tiled room boasts a window with views across the Big Apple, while his bathroom cabinet is full of every luxury grooming product under the sun.
Style: Neutral, rustic
Trust the interior designers to offer up ample bathroom goals. Based in Atlanta, House Lift Design specialises in homes that make the best use of their space. Utilising swanky materials and neutral colour palettes, the result is some of the best-looking bathrooms around. This high-ceilinged attic space complete with exposed stonework and wooden beams is a case in point.
Style: Contemporary, design-led
An estate agent for the social media age, The Modern House represents some of the finest contemporary homes the UK has to offer, through Instagram. So naturally, its feed is a hotbed of bathroom inspiration. The Modern House regularly puts some of London’s coolest properties to the market, and this Bloomsbury townhouse is a recent example. The light-filled, floor-to-ceiling windows and freestanding copper bath is a winning combination.
Style: Pure 80s
The 1980s wasn’t the most unanimously stylish decade, but it was certainly one of the more interesting – especially when it came to interior design. At once opulent, daring and ever so slightly tacky, The 80s Interior highlights homes from this fabled decade, which includes bathrooms that we challenge you not to love. With sunken baths aplenty and the occasional salmon pink accent, ‘80s interior design is due a comeback soon, surely?
If you’re interested in seeing what the bathrooms of the one percent look like, Architects Vision may be worth a follow. Full of outlandish contemporary design and sculptural architecture, this page’s bathrooms look as though they’ve been lifted straight from The Sims 2. While they may be unattainable for most, pay attention to the colour palettes and materials used, which could take your humble bathroom renovation to the next level.
