Bathroom Retreat

Bathroom Retreat

With Mother’s day this month and cold winter days in the not too distant future, it’s the perfect time of year to be thinking of creating a beautiful bathroom retreat.

A retreat conjures up images of escapism and indulgence, a place that you can go to for some much needed relaxation. When it comes to planning your perfect bathroom retreat, there are a couple of points you should consider that will help your dream bathroom become a reality.

Firstly, are you planning a total bathroom renovation or a decorative bathroom makeover? If it’s the later, there are some simple modifications that you can do to make your bathroom feel fresh and new. Things like replacing window coverings, vanity handles, taps and a spout can help create a new look and feel.

Other more decorative additions like a new soap holder, hand wash dispenser, scented candle, vase of fresh flowers or a piece of artwork hung on the wall can instantly lift the mood of a tired old bathroom.

If you’re planning on renovating your entire bathroom, then think about what ideas come to mind when you think about the ideal retreat.

Do you feel most relaxed in a bright and light environment or a dark and cosy space?

Do you like the idea of glossy, polished reflective surfaces or more of a natural, textured, matte finish?

Would a bathroom fitted out with the latest waterproofed, surround sound audio system and retractable built in plasma be your idea of the perfect retreat? Or, would you prefer a sanctuary that has minimal modern fittings and, just a beautiful big bath tub where you could soak away the hours in total peace.

Whatever your preference, keep this ideal retreat in mind when planning your bathroom renovation as it will help you stay focused and assist in the selection of products and finishes.
