13 Ideas For Creating A More Manly, Masculine Bathroom

 

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.

 

1. Anything industrial is a good way to make the bathroom more masculine. Here, a black sink, concrete walls and floor, and brass fixtures combine to create an industrial and masculine feeling bathroom.
