The bathroom, along with the bedroom should be a calming place; it should be a luxurious place where you can lie back, relax and unwind after the stresses of the day.
Sadly, many of us have bathrooms that are less than we deserve – bathrooms which are drabber than fab; which are more cluttered than calming. Fortunately, it is pretty easy to change this by making a few little modifications to the space.
Check out these simple tips to transform your bathroom into a luxurious oasis of calm:
Clear the Clutter
First of all, you’re going to want to go through all of your lotions and potions and get rid of anything that you no longer need or use. The less cluttered your bathroom it is, the easier it will be to give it a luxurious, calming feel, especially when you’re soaking in the bath. I mean, the last thing you want to see is loads of clutter when you’re trying to unwind.
On the subject of your lotions and potions, if you want your bathroom to look more glamorous than ever before, a simple little thing you can do is ditch those plastic bottles. By lots of glass jars and perfume bottles and decant your products into them to stop your bathroom feeling like an aisle in Boots.
Add Some Decorative Tiles
Tiling your bathroom is a slightly bigger job and a bit more expensive than most of the ideas here, but it is also a good investment. Pretty decorative tiles instantly elevate the luxuriousness of your bathroom and they will impress any future buyers. If you can afford them, these sparkling black wall tiles will make your bathroom look ah-mazing., as will pretty much any decent stone tiles. If you can’t afford to tile the whole room, focus on one area such as the shower or the floor, and it will still make the world of difference.
Pendants are Perfect
Switching out your boring old light fitting for a pendant or even chandelier will increase the drama of the room instantly and give you the kind of shimmering, diffused light that screams luxe.
You Can’t Go Wrong with Candles
On the subject of flighting, what could be more luxurious than taking a hot bubble bath surrounded by wonderful smelling candles? Very little, right? So, invest in a few large candle holders that are pretty and dramatic and place them strategically around the bath. Then, buy some essential oil-based candles. Then, lie back and experience greater levels of bliss in the bathroom than you thought possible.
Thick New Towels
Investing in thick new towels in luxe shades of black, gold, purple or red is relatively inexpensive, but it will make your bathroom feel more decadent, and you will benefit from the comfort they offer after taking a long bath or shower.
