A New year a New Bathroom
Spring is in the air and with a 2014 upon us, now is definitely the time for a bathroom revamp. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking to create an entirely new bathroom suite or instead just wish to make slight modifications to a few accessories or perhaps give it a fresh coat of paint, giving your bathroom a fresh lease of life is an essential part of keeping your home both attractive and comfortable. The bathroom in particular is one of the most used rooms in the house, and therefore particular care and attention must be taken when creating fresh design ideas to integrate into this popular and heavily used space.
It’s common knowledge that Bathrooms sell houses. However a modern, contemporary bathrooms are a much better selling point than a traditional old-fashioned bathroom suite, for example a toilet that looks dated is a turn off and the same goes for décor and storage space, which should not only be eye-catching but practical. Proper lighting can also be a great value booster, such as adding a window in the bathroom, so natural light can illuminate the space. An attractive pedestal basin with luxurious curves and graceful lines is far more attractive than a blocky cabinet.
One of the most common mistakes bathroom redecorators make is trying to do too much. Instead of choosing numerous standout features, like large fixtures or a glamorous chandelier, simply choose one elegant standout feature to be your central point. Choose a Freestanding Bath. Freestanding baths are the height of fashion and they come in a whole range of modern and vintage styles. It’s not by chance that baths tend to be tucked into the corner of the room. It’s usually the most efficient use of space in what is generally a small room, plus the corner position and a bath surround hides the plumbing.
Freestanding baths can be sited with the length going along a wall but aesthetically they need space at each end to show off their contours. Freestanding baths are more adaptable and allows you to change the room format when you want to. Creating a simple theme that runs throughout your bathroom can be achieved with accessories and colour to create a well rounded fresh bathroom setting.
