Brilliant Bathroom Design Tips and Tricks

There is no doubt that having a modern and stylish bathroom is right at the top of many homeowners’ wish list. So when it comes to doing this job, you need to make sure you are well prepared before you get started. Not only does a contemporary bathroom look great, it also adds value to your home. If you are about to embark on this particular job, then these tricks and tips are especially for you.



Plan Out the Layout

First of all, you need to evaluate how much space you have and how you are going to make the most of it. The sink, toilet and shower are the most important features of any bathroom so you need to think about where you are going to position each one of these items while also taking into account plumbing drains and water lines. The most cost-effective design is a one-wall bathroom layout which lines up these three essential features along one wet-wall.

Think About the Lighting

Lighting is important in a bathroom, particularly around the mirror which is where you will be doing your morning and nightly routines. Try to think about an arrangement that gives you maximum visibility while also eliminating shadows. You can do this with wall-mounted lights on either side of the mirror and another one above your head which gives you the main source of lighting. Also, think about the positioning of the windows that invite natural light into the room.

Consider What is Under Your Feet

While we have already mentioned the sink, toilet and shower as being three essential features to think carefully about, you don’t want to forget about the flooring and how this will fit in with the overall style of your bathroom. You also need to think about flooring from a practical point of view, and bathroom floors need to be hardworking and water resistant. Stone tiles are popular, but remember that they may become slippery when wet. Ceramics, on the other hand, are waterproof and ideal for bathroom usage.

Add the Extras



Beyond the obvious items we have already talked about, you should also think about the finer details that really complete your bathroom. This may include towel rails, window dressing, bathmats, toothbrush holders and anything else you can think of. Adding a bit of luxury to your bathroom such as towels by Versace Home can really make all the difference. Ultimately, this is your chance to really personalise your bathroom.

Reflect the Mood with Colour

The colour that you choose for each individual room really does make a big difference. Consider what sort of mood and atmosphere you are aiming to create before you choose anything. Many people go for paler calming colours when they are creating their bathrooms. Don’t forget that larger items like the sink and the bathtub make a big contribution to the overall colour scheme. Think about each individual item carefully before you decide that it is right for your bathroom. 

Most of all create a space that reflects you and your family. Have fun planning and shopping!
