Wondering how to achieve a beautiful but practical bathroom? Here’s the best advice!
Most importantly, your bathroom needs to be practical. You need a working sink, toilet and bath/shower. But you can have all these things, as well as make your bathroom beautiful.
Here’s how to create a beautiful but practical bathroom that you can relax in.
Making your bathroom practical
Firstly, your bathroom needs to do the job it’s there for. You need a toilet, sink and shower/bath as well as any storage units to hold products, razors, flannels, etc.
You need to prioritise your bathroom essentials and get rid of anything that isn’t used or needed. Especially if your bathroom isn’t the largest.
A bath can take up a large amount of space. You could get a shower that hangs over the bath, but if you only have a scrub in the tub a couple of times in winter, you should consider getting rid of it. You can replace it with a stunning walk-in shower instead.
Or you could use the extra space to store other bathroom necessities.
Money is also an important practical factor. Only go with what you can afford to spend. You should be sensible with where and how you’re spending.
Is it necessary to have a top-of-the-line massaging shower head, or would a cheaper alternative do the job just as well?
There may be other pressing matters that money can be spent on. Do you have a damp problem? Maybe the paint on the ceiling is peeling? These things can make your bathroom look shabby, so be practical and sort them out.
Making your bathroom beautiful
Your bathroom is used regularly, but also looked at regularly. Maybe you get embarrassed when someone asks to use it. This is a sign to make some changes!
First, you should draw inspiration, find ideas, and take advice from professionals in the industry of creating beautiful bathrooms.
You should then take all the information you can find or are given and make them fit around YOUR bathroom. You must do this, because there is no point in getting things into your bathroom that neither fit or suit its shape and style.
Then you should assess exactly what is needed in your bathroom and see how these necessities can be made to be pleasing to the eye. This could mean filling your walls in waterproof tiling that suits your colour scheme. Or, this could mean decorating your toilet with little accessories, such as plants.
Finally, you should ensure that your bathroom is kept clean and stain free AT ALL TIMES. And yes, this means getting the old elbow grease out and scrubbing away at all those bathtub rings in your bathtub until they disappear.
Our bath/shower has a glass panel that has a flexible plastic slider that ensures water can’t escape under the glass panel and onto the floor. This is the sort of place mould tends to grow, so we bleach it every month and leave it to dry.
Your bathroom is a place that is going to be both looked at and used regularly, so it needs to be in equal parts a beautiful but practical bathroom. Bare this in mind when it comes to your next bathroom renovation.
