Isn’t it satisfying when a bathroom design comes together? From the flooring and the walls to the furniture, lighting and accessory choices, when each area works in harmony the overall finish can be stunning. But it’s easy to overlook some of the finer details that can really make the difference and take the design to another level.
Here are 5 things you should consider if you want your bathroom to have that polished finish:
Storage: No one wants to spend time and money on a beautiful new bathroom for it to then become cluttered with everyday essentials. During the designing and planning stage sit is worth considering the amount of storage you and your family will need, in order to keep all your personal items neatly stored away. From mirrored cabinets and vanity units to tall storage options and open shelving, there are a lot of options to choose from to suit your particular needs, style and budget.
Lighting: Never underestimate the power of lighting in a bathroom. The correct lighting can change the look and atmosphere of a space. It can make it feel warm and relaxing or cold and energizing. Spotlights and pendants can create a focal point or highlight a feature, lighting can also help to make a room look bigger when used in smaller spaces. This is why we recommend thinking about lighting from the initial bathroom design stages.
Finishes: Running a consistent finish or theme throughout the bathroom design can show an attention to detail and improve the overall finish. By thinking about matching brassware, accessories, handles and furniture aesthetics, you can ensure that the look is completed and looks seamless and considered throughout the space.
Accessories: If you have the larger furniture items such as the toilet, shower or bath and vanity decided, remember to consider what accessories are also important for your bathroom experience. Investing in the right toilet roll holder, towel rail, tumblers and dispensers, storage basket and squeegees should be next thing to arrange on your checklist. Don’t forget to futureproof your design and incorporate accessories that will benefit your whole family. Multigenerational and multifunctional accessories that complement contemporary styles do exist and are available.
Personal touches: It is important to remember that you don’t live in a showhome and having some personal touches can give a space additional character and make the house feel like a home. Don’t be afraid to inject some personality into the space using decorative items such as houseplants and candles – items that will make the bathroom unique to you.
