There is a world of opportunities when it comes to creatively styling your living spaces and bedrooms however, styling a bathroom can often be a challenge. When your bathroom is in need of freshening up, you will find that these simple yet effective solutions can make a world of difference in creating an elegant and stylish new look in your home.
Update Bathroom Lighting Fixtures & Hardware
A great way to breathe new life into your bathroom is to update the existing light fixtures and/or cabinetry hardware. These items are often quite simple to swap out with new pieces, allowing you to instantly spruce up your existing bathroom design and match your handles with your lighting fixtures for a more cohesive and balanced look. Modernise your space with the latest trending hardware finishes such as matte black, gunmetal or brass for a contemporary yet timeless feel. Unlike the more traditional polished chrome, these finishes will not show up fingerprints or water marks, making them extremely low maintenance options to consider.
Bathroom Accessories and Pot Plants
A cost effective and simple update to your bathroom, accessories such as tumblers, soap dishes, decorative storage trays, canisters and soap dispensers can be easily swapped over for new pieces to update your bathroom’s look. Include a small decorative tray beside the basin on your vanity unit to neatly arrange your hand towels along with tumblers, soap dispensers or perfume bottles, keeping all items well organised and within arm’s reach when needed.
Boston Ferns are an excellent choice for the bathroom, providing a low maintenance option that is perfect in either a stylish large pot or hanging basket. The luscious lime green perfectly contrasts the deep charcoal tones of our Mountains collection, pictured above being used as both a wall and bathroom floor tile.
Include energetic bursts of greenery in your bathroom by including potted plants in your decorating scheme. Plants that are suitable for the humid environment of a residential bathroom include: Phalaenopsis Orchids, Zanzibar Plants, Peace Lilies and even Japanese Maples. These plants all provide a low maintenance option that is perfectly suited for a household bathroom while also adding a lively and colourful touch to your home’s décor.
Stylish Bathroom Storage Additions
Additional storage space in the home is always welcome! Creating added storage solutions in your bathroom will not only serve a practical function but will also add to the aesthetic appeal of your overall design scheme.
Consider installing modern glass, steel or timber wall shelves in your bathroom for storing necessities such as shampoo and conditioner bottles, extra hand towels or soaps. Bath caddies, oversized towel ladders and bathroom stools can also be included in your design layout where space allows, providing further storage options while also adding an on trend decorative touch. You may also want to include freestanding items of furniture such as small chests of drawers, ornate cupboards and armoires or freestanding shelving units for an instant boost to your bathroom’s functional storage space.
