With interior design being the hot topic for most people these days, and everyone wanting their homes to look and feel their best and show off their personalities, it can be hard to know where to begin on your renovation/make over journey. Many seem to start with the areas most seen by guests or that are lived in the most such as the living room or kitchen. However, this means places like the bathroom often get missed out and forgotten about.
Providing you aren’t thinking about completely ripping it out and starting again, the bathroom can actually be one of the cheaper rooms to re-decorate. Bathrooms tend to be one of the smallest rooms in the house and therefore don’t have a lot of extra space for accessories and clutter, making them pretty quick and easy to bring a new lease of life to.
For example, if you don’t have the budget to get a new bathroom set, perhaps you could just get some new taps for the bath and the sink. A very quick and simple way to change the look and feel of your bathroom without having to do too much to it.
Upgrade your shower
There is nothing more disappointing than a weak shower. If your morning shower is little more than a dribble, you should think about upgrading it and putting in a brand new shower pump from Pump Sales Direct. You’ll appreciate the difference on those cold mornings when only a decent hot shower will do!
In the spirit of co-ordination within the bathroom, it is important to emphasise your own personality within the space. Sure, the look and feel of the room and achieving your dream bathroom is important, but what about the accessories? For example, having towels to match the rugs on the floor can easily and simply transform the room and give it a luxury feel. The little touches you make to a room can make such a big difference, and they don’t have to cost you the earth! Perhaps you could add a bit of depth to the room by adding some plants…or even just one, hanging from the corner of the ceiling, or on top of a cupboard, with greenery hanging downing side.
Perhaps your bathroom rug has seen better days, fraying at the edges and a bit bobbly in places. Well now is a good a time as any to spruce up your bathroom and give it the TLC it deserves by investing in a good quality bath mat or rug. Something you can really sink your toes into after a nice relaxing bath. It might seem like a boring purchase but you won’t regret it after you see the difference it makes, to only to the look of your bathroom but to how much your toes love it as well!
For a more 4-Dimensional touch, perhaps a subtle fragrance could be considered in the form of some potpourri or a reed diffuser even a candle. Scents such as tropical fruits seamlessly transform a plain bathroom into an exotic living space, or if that’s not your thing, perhaps you could do it with some aromatic bath soaps to accentuate the luxurious ambiance of the room…and to hide any other smells!
In the fast-paced world we live in these days, controlling our use of the very limited, and precious, free time we do have is vital, therefore, practicality becomes key. By having something as simple as a linen/clothes basket in the bathroom for all your dirty clothes will help you to keep it looking clean and tidy, but also making it easier to deal with your clothes when it comes to washing them. Although it is mostly about making your home look beautiful, it’s also about practicality as well!
