Renovate Bathroom – Ideas
Your bathroom should be an oasis of calm, somewhere to unwind after a tough day of work, a space where you can shut the door and wash away life’s troubles.
Yet often it’s one of the most unloved rooms in the house, even though it is the most used.
Have you ever been to a beautiful restaurant only to walk into a dingy bathroom added as just an afterthought? It’s immediately off-putting.

Think About Colour
Particularly in small spaces, colour coordination is key to tying the space together visually.

Don’t neglect your olfactory glands! Think about scent, adding scented candles not only looks beautiful but it will add atmosphere to the space.
Let There be Light
If your bathroom is lacking in natural light you can do a little cheating by adding a beautiful mirror. To add opulence, try a gold gilded mirror or if your bathroom is minimal add a large clean lined one to reflect the light and add to the illusion of space.
When considering your lighting features, make sure to opt for an even light – it’s best for tasks like applying make-up.
There are all sorts of clever storage options for a bathroom. If your working with a small space, it’s best to keep your clutter hidden away.
Utilise lesser though of spaces like above the door or behind the bath. A good bathroom installer will be able to offer you ideas based on the size of your room.
White Never Goes Out of Style
When in doubt choose white on white, it’s timeless and you can always add colour with accessories. White is always fashionable and looks clean and fresh.
Consider your fittings
Do not scrimp on the fittings. Why not treat yourself to a bit of luxury? If you have the budget, features like a rainfall shower are worth the investment – imagine waking up to that!
