Bathrooms are often overlooked when it comes to
decorating and styling your home, but it's a room which everyone will
use, including guests, so why not pay it more love and attention?
This can be done on a budget, by using the following tips to give
your bathroom the makeover it deserves!
Here are six tips which will
not only help transform your bathroom, but make it look more
Your choice of mirror could really impact the
look of your bathroom. Large, ornate mirrors, or quirky mirrors -
think leather frames, jigsaw mirrors - look expensive in themselves,
so could really change the dynamics of your bathroom. If you have the
space at your disposal, a full length mirror might be an option, or
if your bathroom walls have other objects on them, a full length
standing mirror strategically placed in a corner would look good.
A focal plant in a corner looks great in any
bathroom - but make sure that it's looked after! An indoor window box
on the window sill with lavender would not only look pretty, but
smell gorgeous too. If your bathroom isn't too small, a hanging
basket from the ceiling would definitely work. Why not consider
flowers too, to add a pop of colour? So long as they're looked after
and not dying, they'll look extra glamorous.
A fancier place to hang towels and robes could
very well be the perfect finishing touch. Towel rails with a gleaming
finish make bathrooms look instantly more expensive, or a heated
towel rail, to not only look the part, but provide a bit of warmth
and comfort post bath. Just ask Rhino Rails for more information
about our towel rails collection, including grab rails. Adding a coat
stand into the corner is a quirky idea to provide extra hanging space
too. These options all look much better than a few hooks in the back
of the door, or throwing your towel over the radiator.
change your mat
Your typical bath mat will very often be a neutral
colour, perhaps even a shade of blue or green. Upgrade your mat to
something with more life to it. Think bigger, brighter, bolder. A
patterned mat could change the dynamic of the room, and would
certainly look different from the usual plain mats available.
Using a pattern on your walls could really
enhance your bathroom. There are all kinds of shapes and effects
available. Shimmery golds and silvers, white with black silhouettes,
3D effect wallpaper, floral - there's a choice for everyone to make
your bathroom look luxurious. A plain wall with a block colour, such
as white or black, could be enhanced with prints or photos framed.
Keeping everything a similar colour automatically looks more expensive, so for those finishing touches, looking for a soap dish and toilet roll holder in a similar hue could really help you achieve your goals. Gold, vintage looking taps might be an option if your budget is higher. A different light shade could make the world of difference. Think along the lines of something old fashioned looking, which can be dimmed to create ambience for when you're wanting to relax. You could add candles too, particularly scented ones, to create a spa-like feel to the room. So once you've transformed your bathroom, make sure to add the perfect finishing touch with some heated towel rails, that suit your expensive-looking bathroom - with some great choices, including free standing towel rails, stainless steel towel rails or curved towel rails.
