14 Aug Bathroom Makeover Ideas
If you’re planning a bathroom makeover, you’ve probably got loads of ideas of how you want your room to be. Your bathroom makeover could transform a tatty old bathroom into a fresh, zingy wakeup room, or a calming sanctuary in which to unwind after a busy day. Whatever you choose, your bathroom makeover should reflect your personality design wise, as well as being practical.
A bathroom makeover can be as simple and easy as a lick of paint and some new accessories, or it could be an entire remodel. Bespoke Bathrooms can take care of your whole bathroom renovation, including tiling and electrics, from the very beginning to the end.
However, if you’re just looking for some bathroom makeover ideas you can put into practice yourself – or some hints on how to accessorise your new bathroom – we can help!
Bathroom Makeover Ideas #1 – Colours
Putting a lick of paint on the walls is one of the easiest ways to breathe life into a tired bathroom. Experiment with colour – rather than the popular choices of blue or green, why not try yellow or orange for a bright, refreshing start to the day? Or if you’re looking to achieve a more calming effect, try a fresh white cotton shade on the walls, accessorising with leafy green plants in wooden tubs.
Bathroom Makeover Ideas #2 – Fabrics
This one is a no brainer. Ensuring all of your towels and flannels coordinate with each other, and with your colour scheme, will give your bathroom makeover a much more ‘finished’ feel. It’s a simple touch, but it makes the difference between an average bathroom, and one that looks like it jumped out of the pages of a magazine. White fluffy towels are beautiful and versatile, however they can start to look faded and old before other colours. Why not try black or charcoal, or a bright accent colour to set off your colour scheme?
Bathroom Makeover Ideas #3 – Storage
When you walk into somebody’s home and it feels ‘homely’, it’s probably because their storage solutions are well throughout and convenient. It seems like too simple a thing to make much of an impact, but everything having a place makes a huge difference to how a room feels to use. The bathroom is an excellent example of this. Bathroom storage should be practical, easy to clean, and thoughtful. Bottles of shampoo and shower gel littered around the side of the bath, and cleaning products tucked next to the loo, make a bathroom feel cluttered and untidy even when you’ve spent hours scrubbing.
For a quick and easy bathroom makeover, pop those toiletries in a corner shelf unit near the shower or bath, and purchase a storage basket for the cleaning products. It can be difficult to choose storage solutions for a smaller bathroom, however there are plenty of options out there. Undersink units and corner shelves can be a great way to maximise space.
