If your bathroom is in desperate need of an update, then there are plenty of ways that you can go about this.
Bathrooms are very important rooms in the house, whether you enjoy relaxing in a bubble bath or only have quick showers, it is important to keep them clean and tidy. However, it is all too easy to forget about them, and let the mess and clutter build up.
If you are considering a complete bathroom revamp, or just need some handy storage options, here are a few ideas to get you started.
Did you know that different colours can create different moods? Classic bathroom colours include blues and greens, as these colours evoke feelings of calmness and serenity, which are important for relaxing in the bathroom.
Think about the atmosphere you are trying to create in your bathroom, and go from there when it comes to choosing colour schemes. You do not have to repaint or tile the whole room from scratch, as just adding in some highlights or coloured accessories can be a great way to update the space. If the rest of your home has a palette or theme, you can bring this into the bathroom through the use of colour or prints.
Bathroom flooring is very important, as you do not want to choose a material or flooring style that is difficult to maintain. You would not put carpet in your kitchen or bathroom, as the activities that occur in these rooms would make the carpet very hard to clean and keep dry.
Popular options for bathroom flooring from woodstonebathrooms.com include wood, vinyl and laminate, as these are easier to maintain. Furthermore, laminate flooring comes in many different patterns and colours, and can easily give the impression of a wooden floor, in any room.
You can add elements of soft furnishing to the floors with bath mats, as these can provide something warm and soft to stand on and can easily be moved and washed when needed.
If you find that your bathroom becomes cluttered with toiletries, bottles and everything else, then investing in some storage solutions could be a great idea. In the bathroom, you can make use of wall space, with towel rails being attached to the walls, allowing you a place to hang towels that does not take up floorspace.
Similarly, if you dry your clothes in the bathroom, consider a clothes airer that hangs from the ceiling, rather than stands on the floor. Under sink storage is another great use of space, as you have to have a sink, so why not utilise the space underneath or around it?
Cabinets and shelves are great places to store your bathroom items, and they can also be kept out of sight of visitors and guests.
Furthermore, suction cup shelves and storage options are useful in the bathroom, as the steam can help them stick to certain surfaces, and they can be easily moved around.
