Our Top 5 Bathroom Ideas
The bathroom. A room that becomes the ‘looking glass’ of so many of your daily habits – from peaceful bubble baths to chaotic mornings with the kids, and probably the only place where it’s acceptable to store an unnecessary amount of self-care products…
Did you know – as adults, we spend on average 416 days of our lives in the bathroom? And yet, (sadly) so many of us put up with tired, dysfunctional and unloved spaces! Revitalising your bathroom stylishly can be accomplished with such ease, so if your bathroom game is in need of a boost, start scrolling to see what we’ve got in the bag.
1: Work those walls!
Restoring the walls in your bathroom space is the easiest place to start when it comes to that ever-growing to-do list. Welcoming in a brand new colour of paint can instantly lift the mood in any room. Soft minimal tones instantly brighten spaces, whilst moodier shades create bold aesthetics that make for a striking area. If you fancy something a bit more adventurous and durable, there’s a myriad of striking designer bathroom tiles out there that can stamp a real sense of personality while providing a luxurious and enduring finish.
2: Neat Storage Solutions
Organising your bathroom essentials can be a very, very mundane task, but unfortunately, it's got to be done; think of it as a clean space, a clean mind! There are plenty of different solutions to this particular problem, coming in all manner of shapes and sizes to suit your individual needs. We’ve listed a few of our favourite bathroom storage solutions that make tucking away your beauty products just a tad more…beautiful.
Whatever quirks your bathroom may have - be it size, shape, sloping ceilings or awkward corners - Dansani's Luna range helps you make the most of every centimetre. Their comprehensive range of bathroom furniture, including mirrors, cabinets and vanity units, will give you the license to explore every conceivable option.
Dansani also provide the accessories and finishing touches to complete a bathroom customised around you. With an extensive selection of functional and attractive choices ranging from makeup holders to magnifying mirrors, you'll have everything you need to improve the quality of your bathroom experience.
Vanity Hall In-Frame
Bridging the gap between contemporary living and classic styling, Vanity Hall have curated a real sense of sophistication and authenticity with their In-Frame range. This isn’t just any old shaker door though, underneath the painted finishes you’ll find a solid timber frame and door panels with real wood veneer. What’s more, these bespoke units can be altered in width and depth and the painted finish can be tailored to your individual requirements so you can pick your favourite from the distinctive palette from the likes of Farrow & Ball or Little Greene.
Bathroom and shower niches are a great way of incorporating storage into very small or compact spaces. A perfect partner for a premium contemporary and minimalist bathroom space, eliminating the need for a shower basket or caddy. Who’s got time to clean those anyway?! Not only are they a nifty storage solution they can also be used to create an interesting focal point when combined with mini niche lights or a contrasting feature tile.
3. Bold Brassware
Move over chrome! For so long now, chrome plated bathroom taps and brassware (mixers, shower controls and shower fittings) have dominated our bathrooms. Those days are dead! Welcome to a world of inspiring bathroom finishes. With an abundance of finishes now available, once humble brassware can now step forward as show stopping statement pieces transforming and accenting to create unique and individual bathroom spaces. These increasingly popular finishes such as matt black, brushed brass and polished nickel can be paired with accessories, heated towel rails and shower enclosures to create coordinated and flawless bathroom designs with unlimited flexibility.
4. Create extra space with light
Making room for those finishing touches in any bathroom is key. And no finishing touch is more important than an illuminated bathroom mirror! Open up a bathroom with an illuminated mirror & you’ll instantly give the illusion of more space. A typical LED mirror will even offer the choice of cool or warm light as well as control over the intensity – you choose the mood! Most also come with integral shaver charging points which can also be used for electric toothbrushes. The trickier part is finding your ultimate statement piece from our choice of Roper Rhodes and HiB mirrors – and remember fortune favours the brave! Here are a few of our favourites:
5. Bring the outdoors in
There is something quite lovely about adding a flourish of greenery to your bathroom space, don't you think? Houseplants are certainly very much in vogue for 2021. And if you're anything like us, we love to add the odd house plant around the place for a little extra character. But remember, those house plants need tending to…
An impressive alternative to house plants is the collaboration between Ca’ Pietra and the National Trust. This collection beautifully recreates the feel of walking through some of the National Trust’s most special heritage sites across the UK, and includes the eclectic Woodland Glade tiles - pictured below - that make you feel like you really are exploring (or exhibiting!) the Great British countryside.
Looking for a more exotic vibe? How about the stunning Jungle Porcelain range from Ca’ Pietra. This fun & playful hexagon floor and wall tile is available in a mix of random Jungle leaf prints and can be laid in a variety of interesting ways, creating a one of a kind and visually striking feature.
