Create a Stylish and Affordable Bathroom

When it comes to creating designer bathroom spaces, people often assume that their budget won’t allow for such extravagant expense such as Freestanding Baths. However, this doesn’t always have to be the case. Taking tips from perhaps some of the most luxurious home bathrooms around the world, we can go on to create an equally attractive and relaxing space at a fraction of the cost that the rich and famous are likely to have paid for it.

Wet Rooms and Walk in Shower Enclosures

Many people don’t realise that adding a wet room or walk in shower enclosure to your bathroom isn’t necessarily much more expensive than the traditional generic shower enclosure. Potentially made up from just a single glass panel, this type of enclosure adds minimalist, contemporary style for a great price. Accompanied with some water resistant tiled flooring, watch your bathroom transform into a chic, stylish haven fit for a king.

Precise Furniture Placement

You’d be pleasantly surprised at how much the odd chair in the bathroom can make. It adds a truly homely and comfortable feel, with an undeniable touch of luxury. Budget should definitely not be compromised when it comes to bathroom furniture – unfortunately the majority of cheap furniture will look exactly that, cheap and frail. Remember your bathroom furniture will have to last a considerable amount of time, so it’s important to invest in the real deal.

Optimise Open Spaces

Although adding furniture is obviously a necessity, it is important to not get too carried away at the same time. Make the most out of any available space that you do have and avoid cluttering it with unneeded furniture or accessories. The most comfortable bathrooms are both clean and tidy; make sure you have storage space available to hide away any unsightly bathroom products.

Illuminate and Reflect

Bathroom spaces should also be well lit to make them more comfortable. A brightly lit bathroom will also benefit from the reflections of clean and clear ceramics. Adding a large mirror to your bathroom in addition to this can’t be recommended enough, playing a vital role in the reflection of both natural and artificial lighting.

Whichever style you choose to incorporate in your bathroom design ideas, remember to avoid over complicating it for the perfectly designed contemporary bathroom space.
