Great Ideas for Creating More Masculine Decor in a Bathroom

Last updated:

A collection of great ideas put together by the team at contemporist to make a bathroom feel more manly or masculine, especially for the guys with bachelor pads or man cave’s within their family home.

Although men typically don’t spend as much time as women do in the bathroom, it doesn’t mean that the bathroom shouldn’t cater to their design needs as well. Adding a few masculine touches to a bathroom is an easy way to make the space feel more welcoming to the guys who need to use it too! Here are a few ideas for creating a bathroom that will make men want to spend just as much time in there as their female counterparts:

INDUSTRIAL AND RUSTIC

Here, a black sink, concrete walls and floor, and brass fixtures combine to create an industrial and masculine feeling bathroom.

RECLAIMED WOOD

A reclaimed wood door with matching shelves attached to the white sink, give this bathroom a rustic contemporary feeling.

DARK TONES, FITTINGS AND ACCENTS

A dark blue accent wall and elements of dark wood and metal add an outdoorsy and masculine feel to this bathroom without making it feel dark or uninviting.

WOOD AND RIGID MATERIALS

A wood bathmat, rather than a fluffy one, or a ceramic soap dish or even a wooden shower caddy adds more of a manly touch to the bathroom and also help keep the space clean and clutter free.

STRIPES AND BOLD PATTERNS

A simple stripe shower curtain or bathmat is both timeless and gender neutral.

BOLD BATH ACCESSORIES

Matte black bathroom accessories add a masculine touch and pack a style punch.

STYLE

Fun towel hooks can act as both functional elements and a quirky way to inject the bathroom with some personality.

If wall hooks aren’t your thing, you could use a metal leaning ladder instead to display your towels and help them dry faster. The dark metal of this one helps to create a more minimalist masculine feel.

SCENTS AND AROMAS

Add a eucalyptus plant to the bathroom. When the steam from a shower combines with the eucalyptus, the whole bathroom smells amazing!
