The bathroom in particular along with the Kitchen is one of the most used rooms in the house, and therefore particular care and consideration must be taken when creating fresh design ideas to incorporate into this popular space. A well-designed décor really can make the biggest difference to your bathroom space, regardless of whether you’re looking to create a modern contemporary rest room or something a little more classic and traditional in an older home, and with spring in the air now is the perfect time for that spring clean your bathroom desperately needs.
For many spring cleaning has become a thing of the past, but the grime and germs that accumulate in your bathroom continue to linger. Cleaning the bathroom is the cornerstone of any good spring cleaning routine, but facing the dust and clutter that’s gathered over the winter months can be daunting. The first step in any effective bathroom cleaning routine is to clear away the unnecessary clutter left in bathroom cabinets. Bathroom storage spaces can often be neglected during routine bathroom cleaning session because everything is conveniently hidden behind closed doors. Since you’re not confronted with mess in your bathroom cabinets on a daily basis, there’s no motivation to clear it away, and it’s simply a case of out of sight out of mind.
After a thorough spring clean, why not add a touch of colour to give the bathroom a deserved lift, but remember be careful with colour as it is key to an effective bathroom design. Whites and creams are both popular options for both modern and traditional bathrooms, and pastel tones such as blues and greens are often used to add a fresh feel to the surroundings. Updating tired and dated bathroom furniture can also give live into a tired looking bathroom. You will also need to pay close attention to what you include and how much space it is likely to take up. It’s essential that anything you add to your bathroom doesn’t make it feel overly cramped or claustrophobic, all whilst coordinating nicely with the colour scheme you have chosen. The final piece of the jigsaw is adding the right accessories to give your bathroom a complete and continuous style that should never be underrated. Small additions such as taps, wall hung accessories, towel rails and the correct flooring are now all available in a massive range of shapes and styles to ensure that they co-ordinate with the style you want to achieve.
Regardless of the changes you choose to make, it’s really important to create a thorough plan of action before any work commences, as this can often result in minor renovation disasters. Create a detailed plan of the measurements of the space that you have available, and pencil in the fixtures you wish to include to generate a rough idea of the general layout of your new space.
The bathroom is a place of relaxation and recuperation, a luxury haven of tranquil bliss and pure unadulterated selfishness for one to just unwind – after all you probably deserve it. So the question is what is your ultimate bathroom luxury? For me, it’s the luxury of a freestanding bath. A hot bubble bath running, a candle or two are flickering and there’s most certainly a chilled flute of champagne nearby. The ideal bathroom can be hard to achieve, especially if you’re planning a perfect bathroom that ticks all boxes and scenarios. If you want to create your perfect bathroom you need to create a bathroom that really works for your space. Trying to make standard fittings and pre-made elements fit a bathroom space can sometimes be like fighting with a jigsaw full of different size pieces it’s much more effective to pre plan and build your concept bathroom by using properly-fitting fixtures and sanitary-ware to suit your personal space, planning is key.
Refurbishing a bathroom or designing one from scratch is a chance for you to have exactly the style you’ve always wanted from basins to storage, tiling to lighting design. Few room measurements are exactly the same, and every aspect of decoration needs to be taken into account when designing a bathroom such as how your interior design matches or complements the rest of your house. Building a bathroom or shower room from scratch offers many benefits and allows you to fix all the little errors in your existing bathroom. The great thing about bespoke bathroom design is that you don’t have to compromise on your choices – standard sized fittings often mean you can’t use your room efficiently, whereas bespoke interior design means you can make the very best of the space available and even add in extras that you couldn’t have considered before.
Regardless of the changes you choose to make, it’s really important to create a thorough plan of action before any work commences, as this can often result in minor renovation disasters. Create a detailed plan of the measurements of the space that you have available, and pencil in the fixtures you wish to include to generate a rough idea of the general layout of your new space.

We’ve all heard the saying: less is more. But what about when it comes to colour? If you're looking for bathroom design inspiration then look no further than the glitzy bathroom suites found in hotel rooms. The use of colour is often minimal and this is based around the idea that a tiny bit of colour can actually be a very powerful design tool. Over recent years there has been the temptation by some to inject a lot of colour into bathroom, the popularity of bold feature walls can't be denied, but sometimes there is another way to use colour in a bathroom. If your bathroom is open and spacious, you can get away with using more colour. If the bathroom is small, bolder colours or large areas in a solid colour can make it appear even smaller and more cramped. For that large bathroom, try using a statement colour on your walls, but keep all your appliances in a plain single colour.
The white fixtures will contrast the bright colours, being easy on the eye but very stylish. The contrasting black and white have a minimalistic and very stylish feeling that makes the room look much more expensive, its also a very popular colour scheme at the moment. Many of these types of rooms can hide personality though, so to brighten them up a little, try installing some colourful accessories. Just make sure that the accessories are all in complementary colours to avoid your once stylish bathroom looking overly cluttered One of the most common mistakes bathroom redecorators make is trying to do too much. Instead of choosing numerous standout features, like large fixtures simply choose one elegant standout feature to be your focal point. Choose a Freestanding Bath. Freestanding baths are the height of fashion for smallest room chic 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 bathroom furniture is more adaptable and means you can change the room format when you want to. Don’t forget to factor in the space impact of towel rails (and whether you want these to be heated as well as coat and towel hooks behind doors and on walls, which also need clearance (and are often at head height). Creating a simple theme that runs throughout your bathroom can be achieved with accessories and colour to create a well rounded fresh bathroom setting. Perfect.
Choosing a freestanding bath can often seem like a step into the unknown however freestanding baths are exceptionally adaptable in lending themselves to the particular design aesthetic of the bathroom they’re placed in. A traditional bathroom design, roll top baths look stunning when placed in the centre of a room. If you’re attempting a minimalist and contemporary designed bathroom, pick a freestanding bath with sleek curves and a pure white finish. The key to making a freestanding bath work in a contemporary themed bathroom space is to choose the right coordinating bath taps.
Choosing the right filler for a freestanding bath doesn’t need to be a complicated choice, to help here are the available options for your Waters freestanding bath. The obvious choice is also probably the most common the luxury freestanding bath tap, suitable for fitting alongside any of our beautiful freestanding baths designed to sit on the outside edge and usually supplied with a hand shower, although care must be taken to ensure you have the correct pressure and the water flow fills the bath without excessive splashing. Freestanding baths taps are available from many different manufacturers and at a wide range of prices – often a freestanding bath tap will compliment the taps on your basin and shower.

As the place we enjoy peaceful time getting ready in the morning and the space we take refuge in at the end of the day, the bathroom is a focal point of activity in any home. Whether your bathroom needs a few updates or a complete overhaul, keeping the space up to date is one of the best investments you can make in your home, and 2014 is all about seamless functionality and bold statements.
2014 sees the resurgence of bold dark colours, the all-white bathroom is a timeless, classic look, but for those interested in a bathroom style with a bit more character, its time to reinvent your bathroom. Our bathrooms are evolving - they're not just spaces where we wash - they're also spa-like places to relax and unwind in. 2014 bathroom trends incorporate décor, furniture and accessories we might usually associate with living rooms or bedrooms blended with the bathroom for a really comfortable room that's a pleasure to spend time in. Forget cold, clinical wash rooms - 2014 is all about comfort. Incorporate an armchair, cushions, books, lighting and fluffy rugs to create a chilled out space not just a bathroom. Avoid white and, instead, choose coloured cabinets for a strong decorating scheme - just as you would in any other room of the home.
A key trend for bathrooms for 2014 is dark wood effect porcelain floor tiling. With many realistic imitation wood patterns to choose from offering all the warmth of wood with the practical features creates the ideal combination for your bathroom. For a modern result, why not use the same tiles on your floor and walls, to give a fluid, cladding effect. Controversially, we could be seeing wallpaper return to the bathroom, though the practicalities of this may not work for everyone. Whatever happens in 2014 Spa like bathrooms have become a commodity and will continue to be so in the year ahead, combining boutique style décor, refined bathroom furniture and bathroom accessories that we might usually associate with living rooms to create an enjoyable and comfortable room to spend time in. Forget the clinical style bathroom the spa inspired bathroom is all about combining colour and comfort.
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.

It's very difficult to get more luxurious than a stone bath, bringing a distinctive natural charm to the bathroom and providing a focal point that will impress anyone who visits. Stone freestanding baths can provide the basis for the rest of your bathroom to be designed around, whether you're going for a completely modern look or matching the natural look with stone basins.
You may have the common misconception that a stone bath may not be comfortable, but because they're smooth to the touch, stone baths are a real delight to your skin, allowing you to easily slide in and enjoy a deeply immersed warm bath. Stone has many advantages, the beauty of stone is that it will last for years; some manufacturers offer lifetime warranties on stone products. With stone baths the materials combine to create an extremely strong and durable solid bath, meaning that it won't crack like a cheap acrylic bath might and should only suffer easily repairable minor damage.
Making the best use of space is the most important consideration when choosing a bath. Freestanding baths need large bathrooms with plenty of room to walk around. As with many home décor a lot may depend on budget, but remember stone products are a life investment and some manufacturers even offer services in which they tidy up warn looking baths to give them a fresh new look. Whatever you are looking for in a freestanding bathtub you cant go wrong with Stone Bath, look out for Waters Baths of Ashbourne’s new range of Stone products coming in the new year.
