Four Steps to a Superior Bathroom
The New Year is the perfect opportunity to give your home a makeover. If your budget can’t stretch to sprucing up the whole house, a new bathroom is a great first step. With this in mind, here are four simple ways to turn a basic bathroom into a beautiful one.
Innovative storage solutions can make even the smallest of spaces feel open and airy. The first step to a show stopping bathroom is to de-clutter your space. Clear out all of the toiletries that you don’t use and re-think your storage options. If space is limited, why not create alcoves in the walls that can store everything from stacks of towels to toiletries and accessories. Wall mounted or pull out shelves can provide you with excellent storage capacity without taking up any valuable space.
Your bath or shower should be the focal point of the room and if you want to make an impact, it is wise to replace your bog standard bathing solution with something fabulous. A walk in wet room or a Japanese soaking tub will transform your room while still ensuring it remains a functional space.
Transform a dark and dingy bathroom into an oasis of tranquillity with downlights. The lighting you choose will help you to create a desirable mood. If you choose lights that are too bright you could end up with a room that feels clinical and cold.
Your bathroom lighting should be functional, after all this is the room that you will bathe in and prepare for the day ahead. Downlights are great as they add a contemporary touch to the room while still providing maximum light over the sink, bath and shower.
Wonderful Wall Space
Functional bathroom design, like these examples on Pinterest, is essential should you wish to create a spacious room that is pretty yet practical. If you have a blank wall, heated towel rails are ideal as they not only allow you to dry damp towels but provide the perfect place to store your towels also. If you have wasted wall space in your bathroom, make sure you put it to good use and utilise the space you have to the best of your ability.
So, there you have it, four fantastic ways to bring your dream bathroom to life in the New Year.
