Bathroom Spring Clean...

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.

What’s your ultimate bathroom luxury?

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.

Luxury Bathrooms

The freestanding bathtub is a stunning luxury, and a freestanding bath is a perfect centrepiece for any luxury bathroom. There are plenty of exquisite new freestanding bathtubs on the market, and loads of vintage styles if you are looking to create a period bathroom haven. Although bathrooms play a very important role in our lives, it doesn’t mean that they must to be designed solely for practical purposes. We spend hours grooming ourselves in the bathroom so why not make it an enjoyable area to be in. Soaking in the bathtub is of course a great way to unwind and many homeowners take up this option at the end of a hard day’s work. Relaxing is always easier when you are in plush surroundings. As a result we are seeing an increasing number of homeowners looking to install luxury bathrooms. But what makes a great luxury bathroom?

 

If your desire is a luxury bathroom then start by finding a bathtub that provides a bit of indulgence. Perhaps you will opt for a bath with a Jacuzzi system fitted and let the bubbles massage away your stresses?  Or maybe you prefer a larger bath that is big enough for two people to share such as a luxury freestanding bathtub? Whichever option you decide on; be sure not to go overboard and choose a model that is too big for the room. Otherwise you may end up with a cluttered look that destroys the relaxing vibe you are aiming for.

 

Whilst you are never going to climb in the sink for a quick dip at the end of the day, the item is a very important piece in the bathroom. So if you have enough scope to incorporate a larger sink, then do so. You will find that the extra space can make these tasks more relaxing. Having more sink space allows beautiful product displays in the bathroom, perfect for those who like to have everything close to hand. Also, make sure that you purchase quality taps for the sink and bathtub to complete its aesthetical appeal. If going for a freestanding bath, floor standing taps can give a bathroom an instant wow factor and should always be considered if the room is available. Selecting your fixtures will help add the finishing touches to your bathroom design. For example, a nice heated chrome towel rail can both look great and provide a warm towel when you finally decide to get out of the bath. Additionally, a large mirror on one of the walls can help to make the bathroom feel more spacious than it actually is.
