Our bathrooms are capable of providing us with much more than just a place to wash; they can act as an impressive home feature in which we can relax and unwind after a hard day. Many people know all too well just how appealing a relaxing bath or hot shower is after a long day at work or caring for energetic young ones, and having some time alone to de-stress can do your mind and body a world of good. As well as being practically beneficial, bathrooms are just as capable of being visually appealing and impressive, and if you are considering starting a bathroom renovation you’re on the right track to achieving this.
Bathrooms are one of the few rooms in the house in which we can experiment and express our taste and individuality through different colours and textures. Applying granite and marble surfaces can be extremely effective where it may look a little out of place in the boudoir and living room. Consider the style that is right for you, create a place you would be happy to spend time relaxing in, planning far in advance will make for a much better overall result when planning your bathroom renovation.
Consider the units and fixtures you would like to include and ensure you have enough room to add any new features without sacrificing too much walking space. A small bathroom crammed with fixtures and features won’t make for comfortable relaxation time; measure the space you have and keep this in mind when picking out new shower and bath units.
When starting your bathroom renovation, take time to view the modern features that could make your bathroom extra luxurious. A heated towel rail can add that ‘extra something’ and make a real difference when you step out of a hot bath and wrap yourself in a soft, warm towel. Shop for stylish additions for your new bathroom; a well-designed, modern, backlit mirror is a sure fire way to impress newcomers to your home and add a warming glow to the room.
Be sure to coordinate colours throughout your entire bathroom renovation, including too many vibrant shades can create a real eyesore and cause your new bathroom to lose its ‘wow factor’. Pick two primary colours that sit well together and stick to this colour scheme as closely as you can, this will have a terrific effect and be sure to impress both guests and family!
