If you live in a relatively modern home then your bathroom is likely to be the smallest room in the house. However, this doesn’t mean that it cannot be made into a stylish and beguiling retreat; it just means that you need to make the most of the space available.
Below are a few tips which can help you to achieve this:
Of course, smart storage solutions are vital when it comes to making the most of your available space. Made-to-measure units which fit around the sink basin and wall-based storage are perennially good investments as they provide more floor space and make the room as a whole feel larger. Shelves and baskets can also be very beneficial as they allow you to remove clutter and engender a greater sense of space.
Colour schemes have always been an important part of a bathroom’s appeal (you may remember when avocado and salmon pink bathroom suites were once considered to be ‘trendy’). Of course, your choice of tile colour will have a large impact on the overall aesthetic appeal of your bathroom. Although white is arguably the most popular choice in this respect, your own selection will of course come down to personal choice. As well as tile colours, you should also give a great deal of thought to accent colour as well. Indeed, similarly coloured candles, towels, flowers, shower curtains and accessories can all to help create a wonderfully themed effect. The real beauty of accent colouring is that it is easy and cheap to alter if you get bored or fancy a change.
Although it may sound like a relatively minor tweak, changing your bath or basin taps can have a huge impact on the look and feel of your small bathroom. As well as being a very effective way of creating a completely different ambience, a change of taps is also much cheaper than replacing an entire suite. Of course, taps aren’t the only fixtures which can be changed. New radiators and shower heads can also be brought in to replace older variants which are perhaps a little short on style and function (or both). Heated towel rails have become an increasingly popular option in this respect as they are not only very sleek and modern; they are also highly affordable and easy to install.
it is fair to say that curtains look somewhat dated in most modern bathrooms. Moreover, curtains in bathrooms can be difficult to clean so they often become ‘tired’ looking pretty quickly. With this in mind it is clear to see why blinds are now seen as being the best type of window dressing for a bathroom. Bathroom blinds can be made from metal, wood or fabric, and are available in a wide range of colours so you can be sure there will be something available to suit your bathroom’s decor (remember your accents!).
