As you flick through the pages of a design magazine, or look at interior design blogs online, you may often come across a bathroom design that you feel perfectly encapsulates everything you’d like to achieve in your own bathroom. The issue can then be the perceived expense of creating that special look, but don’t worry, here’s how to go about creating your ideal bathroom style, without breaking the bank.
Although a complete overhaul or renovation in your bathroom can seem like a lot to plan and organise, there are certain key aspects that, if you get them right, will help the entire process move along much more swiftly and easily. Firstly, make sure you have the basics covered: A fresh coat of paint will invigorate any room and give it an instant update. Although white is generally the most popular colour for bathroom walls, when coupled with a white suite the results can be a little austere and sterile. A light pastel shade will retain the same light and space enhancing qualities as white, but will produce a warmer and more welcoming aesthetic. Any waterproof sealant and tile grouting should be thoroughly scrubbed or replaced as well, so that there are no small stains or damaged areas to detract from your new and improved bathroom design.
We all tend to accumulate far more toiletries, cosmetics and cleaning supplies than we really need, and without sufficient storage space available, all of those mismatched and multi-coloured products and packages can make even the largest bathroom feel cluttered and cramped when they are left out on surfaces or crammed into corners. Two or three storage units should be sufficient to meet your needs, and there are certain models that prove to be the most consistently popular.
A fitted vanity unit will allow you to keep your basin area clear of clutter, whilst keeping all your daily essentials neatly organised and within easy reach. Similarly, wall-mounted cabinets will provide you with loads of handy storage space, without taking up any of your floor area, a commodity which can be quite limited in bathrooms. Finally a tall, narrow, freestanding unit, known as a Tallboy cabinet, will not only provide a huge amount of storage capacity for the smallest footprint possible, it will also help your bathroom to feel like a more designed, thought out and less of a purely functional space.
Finally, finish off your new and improved bathroom with some bright chrome flourishes; taps, wastes and push-button flushes are all areas where a little modernisation will go a long way. Similarly, a heated chrome towel rail will not only heat your bathroom and provide you with warm, dry towels whenever you need them, it will also create a focal design point to help draw the room together.
None of these improvements need to be time consuming or hugely expensive, it’s all about planning and researching your project beforehand. So take some time, have a click around and discover the perfect fixtures and fittings to help you create your ideal modern bathroom.
