The New Year brings all kind of home renovation makeover resolutions. I already have my own ideas for which areas in my home need a little TLC in the next few months, and I bet I’m not the only one. It won’t be long and the stores will be launching their new Spring ranges and with that comes a whole new world of inspiration. I can’t wait! One of the rooms that needs a little work is our bathroom. Living in a Victorian semi we only have a small family bathroom but it hasn’t really had much of an update since we gave it a serious revamp over 7 years ago. Making the most of such a small space is rather challenging, and with the children growing up, there’s less need for bath toy storage these days. I need to start thinking about how I’m going to bring it up to date, give it a little wow factor whilst retaining the practical elements that we can’t do without.
Recently Homebase gave me a little voucher to spend in their store and with the above in mind, I chose to treat us to some lovely new towels from the Habitat range. We’re lucky enough to have a Homebase store that stocks a great Habitat range which means I don’t have to go online or take a trip to London to get my fix. Normally I’d just go for white towels so they complement any other colours but this time I was living more dangerously and chose a beautiful deep purple set! Homebase were running a pre-Christmas sale too so I was able to pick up a matching bath mat too. The towels are beautiful as you would expect. Thick, fluffy and wash up really well.
It’s got me thinking that maybe purple could be the new accent colour in our mostly white and grey bathroom. Homebase has a selection of purple bathroom accessories that could work as in the moodboard above. I love the bright shower curtains, and very popular slate grey accessory set. With some good storage, a new bathroom cabinet and a few well placed accessories, I could be done. I’ll need to keep looking around though. Part of the fun of renewing a room scheme is the research I find, so it could take me a few months to settle on a look. We shall see.
