1. Maximize Your Storage Space
If your bathroom is on the smaller side, it is important to make the most of the space you do have! Pick a style and have fun with it. Take advantage of underutilized wall space by installing beautiful shelving, such as floating shelves or ledges, and replacing your cabinetry. Store every day essentials, like bath and hand towels, lower on your shelves and more non-essential items up higher. Insert a small space inside your shower wall to store daily bath essentials such as shampoo, conditioner, body wash and more; using decanters for a more sequenced look and feel. Install an elegant and modern mirror over your sink with internal storage for more personal items and medications and make use of hooks instead of bathroom bars for towels and robes in use. Metallic hues are a great choice for such accessories because they add more flair and dimension to your space. Go a step further and add organizers for all those small bathroom necessities-from flat irons, to makeup, razors, toothbrushes and more; colour coordinating them to add style and elegance.
2. Choose Your Wall and Tile Colour Scheme
Gone are the days of traditional white bathrooms! And while the beautiful and distinct contrast of black and white will never go out of style in a bathroom, choosing to incorporate bright and bold colours into this very personal space, will automatically modernize and increase the aesthetic appeal of your bathroom. Carefully chosen tiles and a new coat of paint on the walls can do wonders, not to mention, lift your mood, so if you opt to do either, then be sure to settle on patterns and colours that give you that feel good sensation! Incorporate different patterns that accentuate each other, trending colours include bold blues, greens and earth tones. Similarly, bring your walls to life with bright colours that are easy on the eyes and appealing to the senses, keeping in mind that dark colors tend to make spaces appear smaller. Don’t worry if you can’t change your tiles right now, painting a contrasting wall with also draw attention away from them.
3. Update Your Flooring
New flooring for your bathroom is an excellent way to improve it and it sure is trending! By investing in new bathroom tiles, you can increase a bathroom’s aesthetic appeal, instantly. Natural stones such as granite, marble and even porcelain are a great option as they can give your bathroom that elegant and classy look, especially if the space was substantially outdated before. What’s more, such flooring acts as a cooling agent since tile withstands heat and it is incredibly durable, resistant to chipping and easy to clean!
4. Upgrade Your Lighting
Lighting can do so much for a bathroom. Not only can it be effective for producing just the right ambiance in this very personal setting, but you can opt to go a step further and be eco-conscious by using energy efficient bulbs. Upgrade your light fixtures by using LED bulbs in modern, unique and eye-catchingly designed fixtures. For more control over your bathroom’s lighting, install a dimmer switch which will enable you to adjust the lighting to suit your moods or need-for example, for ambience when enjoying a quiet soak, or when applying makeup.
5. Make an Impact with Your Fixtures and Fittings
Fixtures and fittings are the small details of your bathroom that make a huge impact! You can completely change the look of your bathroom by choosing trendy new faucets, rails, shower heads and handles. Such improvements make for a quick way to give your bathroom a total refresh and more radiant update. Not only will swapping out fixtures and fittings give your bathroom more aesthetic appeal, it is also economical. New plumbing fixtures are designed to improve efficiency, making it easier to save by reducing wastage, a new model shower head or faucet, for example, is designed for lower, or even more controlled flow; saving you both water and money! Fixtures and fittings can be matched, or complementing of each other depending on where they are located in the bathroom.
