While many of us tend to make an effort to keep certain rooms in our homes looking attractive, like bedrooms, living room and kitchen, the bathroom can often be taken for granted. It is often the last room to be given some much-needed attention and get decorated. This is a shame as the bathroom is a great place to relax and unwind after a hectic day by taking a long soak, or to wake up with a refreshing shower. So it helps to have a bathroom that’s attractive and welcoming to spend time in.
Whatever the shape and size of your bathroom, you will find there are countless options to choose from to decorate a bathroom. Here are a few ideas to start with:
Choose a Theme
Before starting any decorating work on your bathroom, it’s worth deciding on an overall theme that will be the basis of your new bathroom’s look. Your theme can be centered on anything you like, whether it be the color, furniture or a certain bathroom fixture.
Plan Your Space
It is vital to visualize the amount of space you have available when decorating. This is particularly so when it comes to the bathroom, as you will need to factor in spaces for fixtures such as bathtubs, sinks, shower enclosures, etc. It is also a wise idea to consider storage space to keep the room looking neat and organized.
It is important to choose lighting that can be both bright enough to see clearly in the mirror while shaving or putting on makeup, and yet subtle enough to create a relaxing atmosphere whilst taking a long soak. Dimmers are ideal for having control over lighting levels. Also, installing a skylight is a fantastic addition to allow in some natural light.
Compliment with Accessories
Accessories can really put the finishing touches to your new bathroom look, and can be a great way to stamp your personality on the room. The accessories you choose to have could be anything from a toothbrush holder and soap basket, to a custom shower curtain and matching rug and bath towels.
The main thing is to have fun with the decorating of your bathroom, and not to limit yourself or you ideas. Let your imagination flow and enjoy the whole process of transforming your dull bathroom in to a warm and vibrant space, where you can pamper yourself and relax.
