How To Design A Dreamy Bathroom Space

It can be pretty hard to relax in the bath when mold surrounds you in the grout between your tiles, and there’s a constant drip from the tap over the sink. If your bathroom space is more scummy than dreamy, maybe it’s time to think about a renovation project, and updating the look. When the room you wash in is clean and fresh, so shall you be.

The Tub

The bathtub can often be the star of the show, so if you have space for one; it’s worth investing wisely. Think about the overall look you want in your bathroom when you’re choosing a style and a shape. If you have a period property, consider a claw-footed bath, or if you’re feeling fancy, a textured copper tub; perfect for dropping in your bath bombs!

Maybe you’re after an uber-modern look to your bathtime haven; consider whether you’d prefer smooth curved edges or sleek and sharp angles when it comes to soaking up the suds. It’s worth looking around a showroom so that you can work out dimensions, style, and finishes; beware of pushy sales team members though, or you’ll be doing a whole house renovation before you know it!

The Tiles

There’s nothing worse than grotty grout that won’t get clean, no matter how many times you try and scrub it. If this is the case in your bathroom, then perhaps it’s time to rethink those 40-year-old original tiles covering the floor and walls. It’s time to consider if you want a light and airy ambience in the room, if so; you can’t go wrong with a crisp white tile (although it’s worth remembering that every bit of dirt will show up on them).

With plain tiles adorning the walls, it gives you the chance to lay an interesting feature-floor. Think about if you want it to be sleek, rustic, or classic under your feet as you brush your teeth. When it comes to looking into flooring for bathrooms; don’t forget to bear in mind how functional they have to be, a deep pile carpet will get moldy pretty quickly. There’s always the option to match the tiling on your floor to those on the wall; this will provide a seamless and calm finish (as long as the builder does their job well).

The Taps

You may never have thought about how a tap can enhance a space; but, you’re renovating your bathroom now, so it’s time to start thinking about them. Taps and faucets don’t have to be understated, generic items that help you wash your face; they can tie an interior vibe together, and even become a wow factor as you enter the room.
You could have a large waterfall tap that lights up as you’re filling the tub (no, really) in your state of the art washroom. Or, if you’ve gone for a classic, Victorian look to tie in with your period property, then consider sourcing some genuine taps from that era. Reclamation yards are a great place to start, and you can easily find a professional who will polish your taps properly so that they look brand new; or take a look here to learn how to do it yourself:  https://uk.pinterest.com/explore/clean-rust/?lp=true.

Bathrooms can turn out to be an expensive renovation if they’re not thought through properly, so research into styles and looks that you like, and then go and talk to reputable experts about your budget and what you want to achieve. You’ll be grateful for the hard work when you’re reading Vogue surrounded by sweet smelling bubbles!
