Ideas to decorate your bathroom

The bathroom is undeniably one of the most important rooms in the house. With a little love and a little creativity, a remodeled bathroom will easily increase the resale value of your home.

The purpose of the room

Before making any changes, ask yourself a few questions first.

  • Who is this bathroom for? Guests, children, the whole family or just for adults?
  • What are your priorities and expectations? Are you looking for more storage space, better lighting, larger and newer appliances, maybe an extra sink?
  • Are you looking to create a style that’s fun, modern, sleek and luxurious, or maybe just something that’s easy to maintain?

Start with the senses

The design theme of a bathroom is often created around comfort, rest and relaxation.

  • Scent: invest in good quality candles.
  • Sound: install a wall dock with built-in speakers.
  • Touch: use different textures, heated floor to ease cold toes in the winter, plush towels and soft bath mats.
  • Sight: use colours, mirrors, lighting and accessories.

The details that make an impact

Storage space: Don’t skimp on the space you need to store all your sundries and products, towels and cleaning stuff. Plan a corner you can use to dry clothes or hide the hamper.

Accessories

  • Choose contemporary and original-looking mirrors. Hardware stores are a good place to start.
  • A heated towel rack.
  • A magazine rack on the floor or on the wall near the toilet.
  • A toilet paper holder in the right place! It must be easily accessible.
  • Hooks behind the door or on the wall for additional towels or bathrobes.

Technology

You can also watch TV or search music stations in the bathroom. You may want to recess the equipment and wire the electricity accordingly to keep it away from any water source.

Lighting

Do not focus all the light in one place. Lighting can create different atmospheres, from relaxing in the evening, to clear and bright in the morning.

  • Consider adding a light above the shower, bath, sink and toilet.
  • Choose different bulbs depending on location. You might consider a frosted bulb for above the bath but bright white for shaving and makeup.
  • Important: Installing dimmers lets you control the light intensity and adjust it to your preference.

Before you buy, shop around!

  • Have the dimensions of your bathroom on-hand when you visit showrooms.
  • Try as many baths and showers as you can.
  • Consider buying a bidet — this classic French plumbing fixture is becoming more and more popular.
  • For flooring, consider the new tongue and groove vinyl planks. It is easy to maintain, environmentally friendly, wear-resistant and totally waterproof.
