1. 2019 Summer Interior Trends
Before you begin remodelling your bathroom, it's always good to have a general vision or idea of what you want the finished result to look like. Often, many people go in with cans of paint and buy bathroom furniture without really knowing what they want their finished bathroom to look like.
If you need some inspiration, we recommend checking out some of the latest interior design trends when it comes to bathrooms. For example, you can look at celebrities bathrooms to get a general idea of the themes they are going for and apply this to your own bathroom.
For 2019, we’re seeing a lot of bathrooms that are trying to achieve open, airy space. This can be done either through the use of bathroom mirrors or reflective surfaces, as well as reducing the overall amount of furniture in the bathroom.
It’s also becoming popular for people to remodel their bathrooms with a minimalist and neutral design spec. This has definitely been inspired by celebrity bathrooms! Better yet, it's really easy to implement into your new bathroom design.
2. Lighting Design - Improve Your Bathroom Lighting
If you’re considering changing up your bathroom, always think about your current lighting setup. Lighting is imperative to modelling a great bathroom and can either make or break your bathroom design.
It doesn’t always need to be a huge job of rewiring your lighting fixtures! We actually have a wide range of illuminated bathroom mirrors that feature bright, high quality LED lighting that can contribute to the lighting of your overall bathroom.
We have a wide range of bathroom mirrors that feature LED lighting in a great range of designs, so you can find a stylish and effective bathroom mirror for your new bathroom. You can also choose from cool, bright LEDs to slightly warmer ones, ideal for creating a specific ambience in your new bathroom.
3. Storage - Maximise on Space
It's important to analyse your current use of space to see if you can maximise the available floor space in your bathroom. For example, if you have a selection of old cupboards, drawers and other random pieces of furniture items, you should consider updating these for more modern and space-effective furniture.
To solve these kind of problems, we have a selection of intuitive bathroom cabinets. They are not only designed to act as a cupboard and mirror in one, but they also provide modern storage solutions to keep your bathroom looking clean, tidy and organised.
By removing free-standing floor furniture such as bulky drawers and replacing them with mirrored bathroom cabinets that you can affix to the wall, you’ll be opening up a huge amount of floor space. This will open up so much more opportunity to experiment with your new bathroom.
4. Design with the Future in Mind
With interior trends constantly changing and homes becoming more smart and future-proof, you should consider remodelling your bathroom with the future in mind. For example, our bathroom mirrors actually utilise advanced technology when it comes to mirrors…
For example, they utilise technology and high quality materials to ensure they do not become steamed up in the bathroom. This can look particularly impressive and be entertaining for your guests.
Combining this with the LEDs and high quality reflection, your bathroom can take on a fresh, modern look whilst still providing people with the essential furniture items they need to enjoy using the bathroom.
If you concentrate on creating a future-proof bathroom, you can enjoy your bathroom space much more and for much longer too! This is because high quality bathroom furniture will last longer and won’t need replacing as often.
Finally, it's time to reassess how you organise your bathroom essentials. Once you’ve decided on your actual furniture, it's important to know how you will use this to organise bathroom essentials. With so many things to organise in a bathroom, such as toiletries, cleaning products and other miscellaneous items, it's easy to see why people opt for second best when it comes to bathroom storage and organisation, just to get things put away.
However, if you’re savvy with your bathroom remodelling, you can tick multiple boxes with one piece of furniture. For example, our mirrored bathroom cabinets are a perfect solution for effective bathroom storage, whilst also acting as a bathroom mirror. You can put little boxes and jars in these cabinets to keep everything organised which will, in turn, reduce the amount of visible clutter in your bathroom.
