For most of us, our bathroom is our inner sanctuary at home. A place where we can relax, unwind, take long soaks in the bath and pamper ourselves in peace. If you are lucky enough to live in a large home you might have all the space in the world, however if you are working with a relatively small space (as most of us often are), you may stick to a more practical bathroom. Regardless of the space you have available, here are some top tips to add that extra oomph and make your bathroom that little bit more glamorous. Take your bathroom from drab to fab!
If you are thinking of re-doing your bathroom, more often than not you will have visited a bathroom showroom complete with stunning and pristine bathroom suites. But stop there. You don’t need to shell out a small fortune to add style and glamour to your bathroom. Why not look for brands who like nothing more than the personal touch and help you convey your personality through the rooms in your home.
Coordinate Those Colours
Whether your bathroom is small or big enough for a party, you should keep your towels and linen similar to the shade of your room. For 2016, white is one of the top bathroom colours, with white bathroom fixtures and white tiles in high demand. Whether you’re opting for a modern or more contemporary bathroom, you simply can’t go wrong with this white on white trend.
Going strong in the design arena for the last few years, grey still remains popular in 2016. If neither grey nor white is getting you excited, think about pairing light and calming pastel colours to add that touch of style and glamour. We are seeing more lilacs, powder pinks and turquoises coming onto the design scene this year, and incorporating a pop of these colours alongside the white on white trend will take your plain bathroom to chic and sophisticated. Be careful not to go overboard though and keep the pops of colour minimal.
To really add a touch of glamour to your bathroom why not pair two popular trends together? With Rose Quartz named colour of the year by colour specialists Pantone, pairing this lighter pink shade with metallic will inject a hint of glamour. Reflecting light and injecting that hint of style into your bathroom, metallics have been around for a few years now and and we don’t see them going out of fashion anytime soon.
Refresh Don’t Refurb
If your bathroom is lacking a bit of pizzazz, it doesn’t necessarily mean you are in need of a refurbishment. It might be time to toss away some of your old bathroom accessories to give them that little design pick-me-up. Think textures to add the glamour element – ditch the plastic accessories for glass jars, ceramics and wicker. If you’re feeling a little arty, plain items can be totally transformed to give that personal touch. Look to Pinterest for some amazing inspiration if you need it, there are some amazing finds.
Nobody likes clutter and understandably this can make or break the glamorous zen of your bathroom. But it doesn’t take much to store away those bathroom essentials you don’t want to have on show. Not only will bathroom cabinets allow you to store away your daily products, but mirrored bathroom cabinets can also help to make your bathroom appear larger – we know the struggles of a small bathroom. Another benefit of having a large bathroom cabinet? Much more space for your next beauty and skincare haul of course.
If you’re still looking to add that little extra, double illuminated mirrored bathroom cabinets will instantly add the glamorous element. From audio Bluetooth, colour changing, super bright glow through to the latest addition, the lighted edge mirror, you can browse a full mirrored bathroom cabinet range here.
Whether it’s simply for brushing your teeth, for the men of the house to shave or for full make up application, a bathroom mirror is essential for everyone (well unless you’re doing the no makeup challenge). Whilst our Hollywood Mirrors will instantly jazz up any bathroom and give you the exact lighting you need to leave the house looking flawless and catwalk ready, our bluetooth mirrors with built-in shaving sockets are beautiful as well as incredibly practical.
Let there be light
When it comes to bathroom lighting, it can be tricky to get it quite right so why not pair lighting with your mirror
and opt for a mirror with built-in lighting? It’s time make sure your vanity is as sleek as you want to be!
