How To Revitalise Your Boring Bathroom

It’s the place you start and end your day, so understandably you want this room to look great! You also probably spend more time in the bathroom than you like to admit. For those whose time is too precious to be fussing over yourself in the bathroom, these ideas are sure to get you up early and want to pamper yourself. Bathrooms today are more unique, and have become a space where art and furniture can be the main attraction. Here’s our current needs in the bathroom.

Choose A Statement Bath Tub

No matter how modern our tastes, nothing beats a claw foot tub. You don’t need to have traditional styling to accompany this style of tub and with so many designs, its much easier than you think. Choosing a bold coloured tub will surely make it a major design statement in your bathroom. 

Vanities That Steal The Show

Having the space for two vanities makes our hearts flutter but if you have limited space, one vanity is still striking, and make sure the mirror is big! Or add another mirror opposite your window to create more light.

We’re not going to rave (again) about how much brass and copper fulfils us. We will let this image speak for itself however. Notice how clever it can be to match the grout too.

Be Playful With Materials And Finishes

We love how Studio McGee achieved industrial and luxe look perfectly with the gold fittings and concrete sink, this alone is a very powerful statement in the bathroom and you can easily simplify other areas if you’re on a budget.   

Expose The Storage

Cabinets are making a comeback, and in a good way - or so we'd like to think! No longer is it just a piece of furniture our mothers would rather cut a limb off than throw away, but now working on one of these reclaimed pieces could bring a whole new 'old-feel' look that we’d all be happy to embrace whatever generation you may be.

Combine The New & Old

Mixing antique and modern materials together is a growing trend. This vintage rug against the stark white subway tiles and metal fixtures works perfectly together. 

Incorporate Ambient Lighting

It may look and sound super expensive but with a few tricks, you could easily achieve this look with the clever use of LED lighting and by attaching light tape underneath or on the edge of the counter top or behind a mirror (our personal favourite) to complete your new hotel look bathroom.
