It’s exciting to see that people are becoming more and more experimental when it comes to bathroom renovations and décor. Previously, a bathroom renovation was very much seen as a strictly practical process, but now we’re seeing homeowners embrace style, individuality, and personality.
Of course, there are plenty of 2023 bathroom trends for you to channel in your home, but with the astrological calendar restarting with Aries on 21st March, now is a great time to consider giving your bathroom a refresh using character traits inspired by your star sign.
With this in mind, we teamed up with astrology expert, Emily Thornton, from Solar Sister Tarot to find out more about the typical traits of each star sign. We then worked with Lauren Sutton, head of design hub at Virtual Worlds, who reimagined each of the star signs ‘dream’ bathrooms in 12 unique 3D bathroom designs.
To help you get the look in your own bathroom, we’ve also included Sanctuary Bathrooms' recommended products throughout the guide.
Are you ready to embrace your zodiac style? Below are the 12 3D bathroom designs reimagined in line with each star sign, along with the insight from Emily that inspired each design.
“Aries is a bold, direct and feisty sign; you know what you want and go after it! Represented by fire, you’ll often make impulsive decisions, meaning you must think about designing your bathroom carefully before making any final decisions.
"As an Aries, you’ll have a vibrant personality, and your bathroom should always reflect this: think of bright, bold colours like reds, oranges, and yellows. Look to include statement pieces such as pastel-coloured basins, a capsule mirror, or a monochrome shower screen.”
“Taurus are often stereotyped as lazy - but you’re far from it. You just know that relaxing is just as important as productivity. You can’t be productive without rest and for a Taurus, it’s all about balance! That’s why a Taurus needs a safe haven where they can truly be at peace. You’re represented by Earth, so you’ll need to feel grounded in your space.
"A Taurus bathroom is typically rustic in appearance, with elements such as a copper effect freestanding bath, alongside green, brown and other earthy-toned elements to really bring a calmness. Imagine plants like eucalyptus draping over bathroom cabinets and shower.
"This zodiac bathroom will feature plenty of potted plants dotted everywhere, from windowsill arrangements to cabinet features and floor plants. The space should feel like you’re walking into a jungle paradise.”
“Chatty and big socialites, a Gemini bathroom must be a talking point. Being represented by air, your space should reflect that. It should be bright, crisp, minimalist and clean-looking - think modern furnishings and chic, white interiors.
"Geminis will want to incorporate big, statement mirrors to show off the space, either above the bathroom sink or bath to truly open up the room. After all, as a Gemini you like all eyes to be on you and your bathroom should be much the same!”
“Home bird Cancer needs a safe haven to retreat to, and when it comes to the bathroom, you’ll likely be surrounded by candles as you soak in a huge, freestanding bubble bath to wash your sins away! Represented by water, you find it easier to recharge when you’re surrounded by it – so make this the focus of your bathroom décor.
"Opt for ocean-themed statement walls enriched with blues, greens and homely touches like candles and diffusers. And since you spend hours in the tub, a big, grand statement bath is just what you need to set the scene.”
“Leos are warm, sunny, big-hearted and a little bit dramatic. You’re represented by the Sun in astrology, so you’re definitely the shining star of the zodiac world and your bathroom deserves to stand out from the crowd.
"Incorporate warm, rich colours – such as oranges and reds, paired with dramatic, eye-catching statement pieces. Leos are known to take care of themselves, so space for self-care is a must!
"To truly represent your sign, weave lions into your bathroom, with statement wallpaper or gold and brassy lion accessories and ornaments like candle holders. Alternatively, framed prints with sketches of this strong and striking animal are a great touch.”
“Virgos are the organised, detail-orientated people of the zodiac. Your space should be like walking into a showroom - perfect in every way. You’re a huge fan of storage because you love storing away everything you’ve stockpiled; you’re a pretty thrifty person, after all.
"Virgos have excellent attention to detail, and everything must have a place. That’s why your bathroom will feature lots of functional bathroom gadgets and storage solutions, including items like pull-out drawers or a toilet roll caddy.
"You can always expect a tidy bathroom from a Virgo, as well as earthy colours – think of green vanity units, alongside brown (and even floral-themed) ornaments and panels for a more structured feel.”
“Libras love luxury and their bathroom should be beautiful; you want to hear people GASP when they see it. Libras are harmonious and balanced beings and only get that way by enjoying downtime, so a waterfall shower or statement bath is a brilliant touch.
"You can incorporate wide mirrors or full-length styles for grooming and self-care rituals. And since you’re ruled by Venus, the planet of love, you like to be surrounded by luxury, so you’ll want plenty of chic storage solutions to hold your exquisite lotions and potions.
"You’re a little bit dramatic, Libra, but that only means good things for your bathroom. Think of Grecian interiors and run with it; incorporate Grecian-style ornaments, framed wall art, or go premium with feathers and designs of clouds and scales. Good lighting is important too, so opt for light-up mirrors or good-quality blinds that welcome the most natural light.”
“Intense and dark, a Scorpio bathroom should be like walking into a movie set. Art-deco really suits your personality, bringing brooding artwork to your space, while gothic-style paintings can equally spruce up your walls and reflect your personality, as a Scorpio’s bathroom is somewhere to be at one with your feelings.
"Like all water signs, you won’t need a big statement bath, but a waterfall shower instead to welcome time for deep thoughts. Colour-wise, your bathroom will be filled with dark tones to suit your star sign, from blacks and inky blues to dark greens, with candles that bring that spooky, gothic feel.”
“Sagittarius is a sign of freedom; you’re open-minded, intellectual, and always on the go. Represented by the fire element, your bathroom should feel as welcoming as possible, especially since you always have friends and family over to stay.
"Your walls should be painted bright, warm colours such as mustard yellow, with brass fittings and white tiles to match. You’re fun and carefree, which is why you crave a bright and airy space. You also love functionality and channel this into your bathroom with excellent storage solutions, alongside a walk-in shower for a quick and easy “in-and-out” vibe.”
“Capricorns are grounded, hardworking and ambitious, so your bathroom must be somewhere to easily relax. You work hard and need some downtime, just like anyone else, and your bathroom should reflect that – it should be functional but without the fuss.
"A Capricorn bathroom will feature warm, earthy tones, matched with brown wood and sandy-stone colours to incorporate a natural feel. And ample storage is a must because you have work to do, so there’s no time to waste!”
“Aquarius is an innovative zodiac sign; you’re always thinking outside the box and love setting trends. Some people won’t understand your style, but that’s okay. It’s not to everyone’s taste, but it is to yours, which makes your bathroom so unique and different from the rest, which is your mantra.
"Nothing is too “out there” for you, so imagine quirky furnishings like waved units with marble-top worktops. Remember to have fun with your interiors; your bathroom should be light blue or purple, whether that’s the colour of your walls or furnishings.”
“Pisces are the spiritual, creative and sensitive people of the zodiac. If you’re a Pisces, you’re very at home in water – it’s your element after all. Pisces can be quite emotional, so your bathroom could be the place to let it all out. Colour-wise, envision blues, greens, pinks, and pastel hues, to make your bathroom a safe and welcoming sanctuary.
"Make sure to incorporate a statement bath, which is to be expected for water signs like Pisces, sprinkled with plenty of candles and soft furnishings. Pisces like comfort, so this room needs to be as relaxing as possible, especially since you’re very at home in the water and find it a spiritual experience.”

It’s fascinating to create such inspiring spaces tailored to different groups of people using a palette of diverse colours and textures to suit their tastes.
"I started creating moodboards for each sign by selecting tiles and bathroom products, which gave an insight into how the finished bathrooms would look. Virtual Worlds has many high-end brand partners like Ca' Pietra, Merlyn and Crosswater, so it was easy to drop in the exact products.
"I love how some designs are colourful and playful like Gemini, and bold and vivacious like Aries, while others are dark and cocooning like Scorpio. My favourite has to be Virgo; it is beautiful, serene and a space you will always want to return to relax."
