If your bathroom’s looking a little worn and outdated, you’re probably thinking it’s time to go for something new and give it a little bit of tender love and care. Here are four ideas for revamping your bathroom and giving it a new look for 2017. Whether your style is glitzy, Downton Abbey, or simple and naturalistic, there’s a style here that appeals to everyone. With companies out there like Better Bathrooms and others competing for your custom, there’s no better time to look at changing up your bathroom and getting a great deal!
Vintage glamour has made a celebrate comeback in recent years, and it is set to continue to go strong in 2017. Many rooms in your home may have already benefited from an old-time heritage touch, and your bathroom doesn’t have to be left out. Replace your modern chrome taps and handles with classic brass style fittings. Free-standing tubs are massively in at the moment and are the perfect tip-off to the vintage styles of yester-year.
A perfect way to add a vintage feel to any room is to buy something antique – something old that’s in need of a little tender, love and care. Pieces that have been restored are likely to cost a pretty penny, but if you buy something old and fix it up yourself, you’ll be able to bag a bargain.
It’s easy to underestimate the simple style bathroom, but a combination of rounded shapes and grey colours can add a wonderful, easy-going and laid-back to feel to any bathroom. The great thing about easy bathrooms is you don’t have to go crazy on the upkeep – once it’s sorted, it will take care of itself. Plain tiles are a great decoration for simple themed bathrooms and stone basins will add an authentic, natural feel. Plants aren’t a common staple in bathrooms, but adding a few leafy greens to your window sill can give your bathroom a homely, natural feel. Investing in a wall radiator to heat up fluffy, cosy towels is another great touch for a wonderful bathroom.
Want your bathroom to ooze hotel style glamour and sophistication? Swap your typical bathroom lightning for a glistening, sophisticated chandelier. Marble tops are a perfect way to add style and glamour to your bathroom, but they aren’t cheap; swap them for cheaper dark wood coloured accessories. For the walls, inject glamour by using glitter-infused, sparkling, black tiles; or, for something a little cheaper, a metallic cladding will have the same effect. A table next to your bath complete with a book, a glass of bubbly, and a nicely warmed towel will also help to inject a spark of hotel glamour.
- Bright and airy
Bright and airy is definitely the best way to go if you have a small bathroom space to work with. Light colours help to maximise space and give the illusion of additional space, so go for pastel colours and a lighter palette when choosing your décor. Team with floating cabinets and clever space-saving furniture such as floating toilets, corner sinks, and combination bath and showers. Reflective cladding and mirrors is another way to create a sense of increased space.
