Fed up of your bathroom? Get some bathroom style inspiration for your home.
A bathroom is a place we want to chill out in at the end of a long day. Whether you’re a morning shower-er, or an evening bather, the bathroom is supposed to be a sanctuary. You don’t want to be looking at peeling sealant, mouldy tiles or a dripping tap.
But if you’ve made the decision to do something about it, you might now be wondering how to freshen up your bathroom and what style to take. These bathroom style inspiration ideas should help you pick a theme and create it in your own home.
The idea of a spa bathroom is to make you feel like you’re on a luxury retreat in some far away manor house. We can all dream right?
Achieve this look by upgrading your taps. This isn’t an expensive or difficult job, but will transform the look of your bathroom suite. You can choose waterfall taps for a luxury feel without spending tonnes of money.
You should also choose lots of warming colours such as creams and browns. Lighten the room using white towels as accessories on towel rails. You can also add built-in speakers to your shower to play relaxing music whilst you unwind in a bubble bath.
Create a Japanese-style luxury bathroom to feel like you’ve left the UK and arrived in some other far away country. The Japanese love their bathrooms. They tend to have separate ‘rooms’ for the toilet, bath, and dressing room. Okay, so some of us don’t have all the space in the world to achieve that. But there are other ways of creating this style.
Use plenty of dark woods to warm the room up. If you’re scared of using lots of dark materials, use accessories to break the monotony up such as light towels and plenty of greenery or plants. Plants are essential when creating a Oriental bathroom. Use bamboo that goes from floor to ceiling as decor.
If you have room for it, elevate your bath. This is traditional in Japan.
Scandinavian decor is something that we’ve seen a lot of the last few years, and it shows no signs of disappearing. The Scandinavians are all about minimalist design and creating the feeling of space. Achieve this by using natural, light woods such as birch, and avoiding heavy or large furniture.
Their fixtures are usually hung on the wall as this creates the illusion of more floor space than there actually is.
Look out for the new Scandinavian bathroom range being released by iflo this May! Their ranges are modern, beautiful and sleek.
Rustic Style Bathroom
I love rustic, cottage style bathrooms. Achieve this look by investing in a brass, free standing bath (believe me, this really should be seen as an investment; they’ll last for years!). Pair plenty of natural metals like brass with wood and stone.
You can also upcycle old units to create stunning sink units or bathroom cupboards. This is much cheaper than buying a new sink unit, though may take you some time to finish.
If you have exposed beams, make the most of them!
Which of these bathroom style inspiration ideas would you choose for your new bathroom? Or would you go for something else entirely?
