Bathrooms are the one room where we like to indulge ourselves both in terms of relaxing hot baths to decoration. In fact, Europe alone spends around 3.4bn a year on bathroom decorating and related products.
If you are thinking about a bathroom renovation over the coming months, it is important you have the right tools and bathroom sealants to hand. It is worth spending time researching this area especially where sealants are concerned. You do not want to have to conduct repairs after caulking a bath for example. It is best to make the right choice at the start of your renovation rather than repairs later.
Preventing leaks and doing a proper installation cannot be overstated. It is the same if you are renovating a kitchen or any part of your home where water damage could occur.
With this in mind, let’s look at some good bathroom options to make your home sizzle!
It’s Not All Black and White Except…
If you want simplicity, go for a black and white color scheme. Depending on your taste, you can use a ‘subway’ look involving white tiles and black grouting. This may be stark for some, done tastefully it can make your bathroom both striking yet adopt a simplistic design.
Freestanding baths are very in vogue now, and you may want to consider this option if your bathroom supports it. With creative planning, you can use one in a relatively small space. No matter the size of your bathroom, you will love soaking in your nice and big bath.
Sometimes less is more, and a minimalist design highlights this. Often designs of this nature have a simple dark color contrasted by a splash of color that highlights a feature such as a bathtub.
Minimalist designs are often successful providing you plan exactly what you want before you begin your renovation. You may have to live without certain features such as good storage options. If you love the design, however, you won’t care.
Use Lighting Creatively
Creative lighting can really add to your bathroom and make the room far more pleasurable to use. In many respects, the lighting will complement a theme, say minimalism or ‘subway’. If used correctly, it will both illuminate the room while ensuring your bathroom has that touch of class.
Rustic can be Cool
Clever use of basic materials like wood can really bring a bathroom alive. The more creative uses striking fittings such as matt black contrasted against white walls. Tasteful application is key here, and ensure you protect woodwork that is exposed to moisture.
Stone Materials for Something Extra
Stone can be a wonderful material in the bathroom. It can be used to complement a range of designs and can be subtle or elaborate. Some of the latter include features such as granite bathtubs. If you do not want to go that far, consider stone floors and mirror frames.
Bathtubs come in all shapes and sizes, and if your room supports it, you might want to go for one that is circular shaped. This is a truly striking feature, and thanks to their design are quite big. It may not be for everybody, but what is?
