It’s amazing how much junk can gather in a bathroom, people always tend to go for deals on shower gels and shampoo and this all builds up and overflows out of bathroom storage. So to transform your bathroom one of your first goals is to find suitable storage for it all or if you aren’t going to use it either chuck it or give it away. There are plenty of storage options and ideas available but the bathroom is often an awkward or uncomfortable area to fit these in, therefore if you have the funds and are willing to make a bit of an investment, it is definitely worthwhile having storage units fitted.
Add A Large Mirror
A mirror is an important part of the bathroom and so to is its placement, usually put above the sink it should be at eye level or even large enough to show the whole of your upper body. But you should avoid the idea of having a full-length mirror, as they aren’t the most flattering or practical in a bathroom.
Light It Up
Lighting is key in any room in your house, from the living room to the bedroom and the same goes for your bathroom. Having a harsh light in a bathroom can be very unflattering and give you a distorted image of what you actually look like. The perfect way to avoid this is by having vertical lighting on either side of your mirror, this will create a flattering light over the traditional ceiling lighting. Don’t just stop there though; why not add some atmospheric lighting options for when you like to unwind after a long day at the office. Throw in some candles to for an extra treat and air of luxuriousness.Find some bathroom light ideas here.
As with any room if you don’t vary your textures then you will end up with a generic and cold style. Keep it to two or three different textures from the wall paint, to tiles and bath units, this should give you ideal amount of scope to create a stylish but simplistic style. Don’t go too overboard on paint colors either, pick a palette that you will be happy with and won’t want to change after a year.
