Here’s how Duravit does Hygge in the bathroom, using simple, sophisticated products

With the nights drawing in and the colder temperatures daring you to walk out without a full set of gloves, scarf and hat, it’s nice to know that you can head home to a cosy, warm and comfortable house. To get that feel-good factor, Duravit suggests opting for a Hygge scheme in the bathroom. The popular ‘anti-doldrums formula’ is practised by the Danes but can be easily integrated into any home with a few simple style adjustments. Here’s what Duravit suggest…

Simplicity plays an essential role in Hygge and equally so in the Luv bathroom range, by Danish designer Cecilie Manz, which uses matt glazes in a variety of soft, neutral tones, including Light Blue and Stone Grey. Combing these with simple furnishings, such as extra-fluffy towels, thick-knit blankets and neutral bathroom accessories will give the space a true Hygge feel. For a contemporary take on the Nordic trend, Duravit’s DuraSquare bathtubs boast a sleek, angular aesthetic. Each bath is made from the company’s DuraSolid® material and has a warm, pleasant feel. They are available in freestanding, back-to-wall or corner versions and can feature the optional air-whirl system that will make for a stylish and perfectly relaxing soak. And for the finishing touch – no evening bath should be without soft, warm light such as that of a candle. Statistically, Duravit states that 80% of Danes associate the term “Hygge” with candlelight; relying on candlelight or on small lamps to introduce lighting accents in the room, creates different zones within the space and a harmoniously calm atmosphere.
