Reading time: 4 mins

It’s not our intention to rival cupid, but we know a thing or two about keeping romance alive that we felt compelled to share this Valentine’s Day.

Whoever said ‘sharing is caring’ has probably never negotiated the use of a bathroom with their partner. So, if you’re preparing to renovate yours, here are our top tips for creating a couples retreat that will make every day feel like February 14.

Turn your bathroom into a thing of beauty fit for two

If a trail of rose petals to th bath that’s been run just for you is your idea of romance, it’s essential to spend time considering the right tub for your retreat.

To ensure both parties enjoy a comfortable soak, we recommend a centralplug hole. We’re loving the Posh Solus range for the ultimate shared soak. For a striking freestanding statement piece, opt for something from the LAUFEN Sonar range – the ideal pick for emulating the hotel ensuite from your cheeky vacay.

For something a little more classic, you can’t go past the glamorous Kado Era with its gorgeous claw feet, inspiring the feel of a quaint country B&B.

From face wipes and fragrances to makeup and moisturiser, your very own basin and a place for your bathroom belongings – like the ISSY Halo Vanity and Mirror Cabinet - is key to the ultimate (couples’ retreat.

On the subject of privacy, considering the placement of your toilet – behind a door or nib wall – will allow each of you to take care of business in peace!

Side by side basins save the day, giving each partner their own space

Sharing a shower with your partner is far more challenging than showering them with affection, so a double shower for couples in the bathroom is a must. Especially when it comes to ending arguments over whose turn it is under the stream.

Former The Block contestants and talented design duo, Alisa and Lysandra incorporated not only a stunning twin shower, featuring two overheads and a hand shower for ultimate functionality, but included a luxe bath and striking double vanity in their Albert Park ensuite.
