Having a nice bathroom not only helps you to feel good, it also adds value to your house. Alongside the kitchen, the bathroom is one of the key rooms in your home. It therefore makes sense to invest time and effort into making sure your bathroom is ‘just right’. Each aspect needs to be examined and reassessed, in order for you to achieve the look you are aiming for.
If you have a small to medium sized bathroom it is particularly important to utilize the space effectively. Here we have compiled a list of points to consider when it comes to decorating your bathroom.
Colors Make a Difference
If you wish to create an illusion of more space in your bathroom, light, soft colors work best. For the furniture and the walls, choose neutral colors to create an airy and spacious feel. Add interest by choosing brighter colors for the towels and accessories.
Simple is Good
Your bathroom floor needs to be practical as well as to look good. This means you need to choose tiles which can be cleaned easily and which are as waterproof as possible. Ideally, choose porcelain or ceramic tiles for the floor as these have a very low moisture retention rate of around 0.5%. If you are considering a natural stone floor, in material such as marble, slate or travertine, ensure they are treated with a suitable sealant. Polished concrete is an effective look for the bathroom floor, as are plain tiles. Both are easy to clean.
Although your taps may not seem to be of particular importance, they do actually make a difference in terms of the overall décor of the bathroom. Decide whether you would like to have traditional taps or modern faucets and ensure they work with the rest of the room. The taps should either complement or match the bath taps.
Investing in a stand-alone shower will add value to your bathroom and can make for a very convenient appliance. If you do not wish to do so, there is still the option of jazzing up your existing shower by purchasing a new showerhead, shower curtain, grab handles or hanging baskets for the shower. Sometimes a change is as good as a rest!
Storage = Style
In order to de-clutter your bathroom once and for all, why not purchase some useful vanity cupboards or shelving? Cabinets which sit under the sink work well, as do stand-alone drawers. These come in all different designs and style, so you are bound to find a look to suit.
Hopefully, these tips will help you to create the bathroom of your dreams. Don’t underestimate the power of bathroom accessories. Little touches such as the toothbrush holder or the color towels you have can make the difference between shabby and chic. Good luck!
