Luxurious Porcelain Tiles
Nothing says luxury more than a gorgeous porcelain tiles laid from floor to ceiling in a bathroom. Try a natural, earthy palette to instantly transport you to a calm and tranquil retreat. When it comes to selecting your porcelain tile dimensions, a square tile on the floor matched with a rectangle tile for the walls (like the below tiles) works beautifully and creates a subtle point of difference and interest.
It's All About The Bath
When you picture yourself in your dream bathroom, does it involve you having a long hot soak in a bath? If so, then a freestanding bath positioned to be the feature of your bathroom, is a great idea. One consideration with this is space. If space is not something you have a lot of, then think about a wall or corner bath or inset bath to allow that little bit more room.
The Bathroom Wow Factor
If you're creating your dream bathroom, chances are you want it to have the wow factor. One way to make a huge impact is to consider a photographic feature wall or a wall made out of decorative panels like coloured antique mirror. This is a lovely option if your bathroom is to have a theme and what's more, very straightforward to clean and care for. The options are endless, a Venetian canal for a luxurious romantic bathroom, an abstract photograph for colour and movement, a nature inspired image to bring the outdoors in or a beautiful coloured antique mirror panel for a stunning point of difference.
Bathroom Creature Comforts
I think you would be lying if you said you don't like stepping out of the shower to a nice, warm, fluffy dry towel! It's the simple things that make a beautiful bathroom functional and no more so than a heated towel rail. Also consider items like magnifying mirrors, hooks for robes and bathroom accessory sets for a lovely finishing touch.
An Easy To Clean Bathroom
If your dream bathroom is all about being low maintenance and easy to clean, then there are a few key things you should keep in mind when you're planning your space. Wall hung bathroom vanities are not only a terrific focal point for a bathroom, they are super easy to clean beneath and give the illusion of more space and light. Think about using large tiles, rather than smaller mosaics, as this means less grout to scrub on your Saturday mornings! Ventilation is a big consideration as if adequate, this eliminates problems such as residue and mould build up.
We hope these above tips have given you some great ideas for your bathroom renovation. Good luck!
