Simple Ways To Make A Statement In Your Bathroom
Our bathrooms are our sanctuary.
They are the place where we prepare ourselves for the day ahead and where we unwind again at the end of the day. This is why creating a relaxing oasis is crucial. And even better, a great bathroom adds value to your home should you ever want to sell!
But how do you go about transforming your bathroom and creating a haven for yourself and your family?
Well, it can be pretty straight forward, even just one statement piece can transform the look and feel of the whole room. But it’s up to you whether you want to do something a little extra like retiling and wallpaper or just keep it simple by adding a unique mirror or light hanging.
Either way, if you're looking for inspiration to take your bathroom to the next level, you’ve come to the right place. Below, we’ve pulled together a list of seven ways you can make a statement in your bathroom.
Pick a bold wallpaper
Wallpaper might not be something you’ve ever really considered for your bathroom but a bold print can be all it takes to transform your space.
Whether you opt for patterns, bright colours, floral designs or even a moody marble effect, choose one wall to make a statement for you.
Just be sure you have good ventilation in the room and that your walls are going to be able to withstand the moisture and steam from the shower.
Add a unique mirror
Mirrors are not only for checking yourself out as you get ready, they can also help to open up the space - which is great news if you have a small bathroom.
What’s more, adding a uniquely shaped or beautifully designed mirror can add a real centrepiece to the room. It can be a point of interest that draws the eye.
Plus, it’s so simple and effective so you don't have to put in hours of redecoration or refurbishment to make the room feel new. You just choose and add your beautiful new mirror!
Select an impressive light fitting
The lighting in your bathroom is important, it can make or break the room. After all, you don't want it to be too dim but you certainly don't want any unflattering bright white light.
But lighting can also be so much more than just a way to set the mood.
Whether you want to create the feel of a spa with an illuminated mirror and lamps or whether you want to add a big and extravagant light fitting that grabs your attention, your light fittings can be the perfect way to make a big statement in your bathroom.
Hang some eye-catching artwork
Much like adding a unique mirror, an eye-catching piece of artwork can add personality, colour and character to your bathroom with relatively little work. So choose something big, small, bold or beautiful, just make sure it grabs attention and that it shows off your personality.
Upgrade your bathtub
Is it time you upgraded your bathtub? Or perhaps you currently don't have one at all and you want somewhere to relax at the end of the day?
Either way, why not make a statement with something free-standing, brightly coloured or even invest in a spa bath. This can be one of the most relaxing places in your home, so treat yourself to a bath that not only makes a statement but that makes you feel relaxed and happy.
Add intrigue with beautiful tiles
If you're concerned about how wallpaper would fair in your bathroom, then why not consider some bold, statement tiles instead? You could tile one wall, the whole bathroom or perhaps just add an intriguing border all the way around.
There are so many different tiles out there that you can choose from, you're sure to find something that suits your style and personality, all whilst adding a splash of colour and beauty to your bathroom.
And hey, these don't just have to be your average square tiles either! You could go completely out of the box and choose something like hexagon tiles that mimic the pattern of a beehive.
Choose a standout rug
And last but not least, why buy a run of the mill bathmat when you can add character and style to your bathroom floor with a standout rug.
Be sure to choose something water-friendly that isn't going to be damaged by moisture but other than that there are so many options out there for you to choose from!
From bamboo to super fluffy rugs, you can add a splash of colour or choose a pattern that adds some excitement to the room.
