Your bathroom should meet two particular requirements, the first is that it should be well mapped out so that it is accessible and the second is that it should be stylish. This is not just the room in the home where you go to wash and go to the toilet, this is a room which should be designed like a sanctuary, a place where you can go to relax in the bath after a long day, or a place where you can just shut the world out for a short while and have some time on your own.
The key to creating a great looking bathroom is finding that WOW factor, something which a visitor will walk in and instantly feel amazed or impressed by. Let’s take a look at some of the things that you can add to the bathroom which will deliver that impressive moment.
You may think that having lights around the edge of the bathroom floor is a feature exclusively for the rich and famous but thanks to low cost lighting options you can create exactly this look. LED lights from Clearlight Designs is a perfect option here, they are low cost and they can be bought on a long piece of tape which you place around the bottom of the bathroom. At the end of the tape the lights will connect to a transformer and a plug, giving you a great looking glow as you walk around the bathroom.
When people add art to their bathrooms it instantly looks impressive and better still is the fact that there is a lot more time in this room to digest artwork than in others. Whether you are on the toilet or in the bath, there are these lovely moments for quiet reflection and gazing upon a great piece of art is a good way to spend it. Look for a piece of art which is authentic, even if it is by a local artist, something which has a bit more about it than some stock art print.
Plants inside the bathroom give the place a really calming and elegant touch that will really WOW people when they walk in. There is a fine balance which you need to strike here because too many plants or not enough, and you will have lost the look that you are going for. Depending on the size of your bathroom you can opt for perhaps 3 or 4 plants that will bring that classy touch of nature into the home, and add to the calming and relaxed feeling of the bathroom.
Instead of simply opting for a standard square mirror, a far better option would be a mirror which has something slightly different about it. For example you could choose a mirror with an ornate frame, or perhaps one which is oddly shaped, but still fits in with the bathroom. A freestanding mirror could be another choice here, which is classy and most certainly has that impressive factor about it.
These are just a few of the many simple touches that you can make to really give your bathroom the WOW factor.
