7 Tips for Re-Designing Your Bathroom
We have been working on a number of bathroom designs recently. Considering that your bathroom is probably the most used room in your home, it’s important to make sure that it’s a space you love. Here are our top tips for refreshing or re-designing the space to suit your needs.
Making smaller bathrooms look bigger
If your bathroom is on the smaller side, then keeping the interior bright and fresh with light, neutral tones can help to create the illusion of space. Opting for gloss tiled walls and floors instead of paint is also a good idea. This is because light will reflect off the tiles, therefore creating the illusion of there being more space in the room than there is.
You may also want to avoid hanging too many fixtures to the walls in bathrooms that are limited for space. Too many shelves and cabinets will only reduce the room. Why not try making little cubby holes in your shower? This is a much better storage option that won’t hinder the space.
Feature Baths and Lighting
If you’re fortunate enough to have a grand sized bathroom, a really nice way to balance out the space is with a statement fitting. Hanging a statement light fixture over a free standing bath works really well. Or, you may have a statement bath that you can pair with a simpler light fitting, centre to the room. The pieces that you add around them should compliment but not overpower, so as not to have too much going on in the room all at once.
Bringing the outside in
Rainforest showers are dreamy and we absolutely love this kind of look. Who doesn’t want to feel like they’re showering in the tropics? We advise adding lots of plants and a freestanding basin if you want to bring the holiday vibes into your own home.
A nice way to incorporate some colour into a dark bathroom is through the splashback. You’ll find that you can use bolder colours without it overpowering the whole room.
Replacing plain tiles with patterned ones is an easy way to re-vamp your bathroom. You can either use them on the floor, on the walls, or both! These are fun to play around with, so we advise that you get a few samples and see what works best for you.
There are plenty of ways that you can lay your tiles to give them a fresh look - herringbone, subway, windmill. Have a look at some of the interesting ways that you can arrange yours to give even a simple plain tile a more appealing look.
