Over recent years we have seen a large increase in accessories for the bathroom, such as the modern steam shower and whirlpool baths to the more traditional hand crafted stone baths. This in turn has enabled bathroom suppliers to inundate us with a mixture of modern, traditional and contemporary options openly available for almost any budget.
If you are considering improving or simply redecorating your bathroom you must first determine what your new design will consist of and then work on reflection to bathroom decor – i.e. the style, the colour scheme, the furnishings. You should always opt for a style that goes with the rest of your interior. Many people make the mistake of putting an overtly high-tech bathroom into a cottage or a traditionally themed home. This is wrong. If your home is decorated in a country styling – your bathroom should reflect this with the decor. However this doesn't mean that you can't have modern bathroom accessories or you have to have lifeless furnishings - there is always a contemporary take on the "traditional style".
Your bathroom furniture should complement the rest of the scheme. – For example, a modern designer wash basin will look out of place situated with a traditional bathtub! If your bathroom is too small, try to incorporate functional furniture such as a wall mounted cabinet or a vanity unit featuring a sink, this will allow additional storage space. If you have the space, it’s useful to have a separate bathtub and shower enclosure, but if space is limited you can always go for the combined shower and bath or if budget will allow a modern quadrant steam shower bath. Use additional items such as a chrome towel rail for the more modern approach or for the more traditional look you can use a roll top bath.
Lighting is often overlooked, yet it’s a very important element of a successful bathroom. The bathroom is a location where we like to relax and enjoy a tranquil bathe or shower. Your mood is of importance and for this an ambient lighting effect is the prefect addition. For this we can utilise directional lighting with a dimmable feature. Another factor worth considering for improving the atmosphere is an illuminated or LED mirror.
A successful bathroom is one that consists of a warm inviting interior where the furnishings and furniture work in balance with one and other. The room should give off an ambient and pleasant feel enticing you in to a tranquil mood enabling you to relax and allow the stresses and strains of the day ebb away.
