Bathroom decorating ideas

The design of your bathroom dictates its overall mood and energy. Tiled walls give it a clean, modern look, while certain colors and stylish accents can make it more inviting. So whether in an old house or a new house; the bathroom is the place where most occupants need to put much consideration in the accessories and the overall look.

Aside from being one of the most important rooms for your domestic needs, the bathroom is also one of the primary rooms, after the kitchen that really helps to sell your house. So every aspect of your bathroom has to be well considered, from sanitary ware and fixtures down to flooring and wall finishes. By watching the budget and arming yourself with expert information, you can achieve the perfect balance.

Whether it’s a full bathroom remodeling or just updating the accessories, the options are almost limitless - the design options of fixtures, the vanity, cabinet, shower, mirror, bathtubs, tiles and more have only grown over the years.

Maybe you want a contemporary bathroom or Victorian style; large, modern tiles or discount tiles for the budget-conscious. A less fancy consideration is your exhaust fan, or try a heated towel rail for added luxury.

Make your Bathroom flexible but realistic

Getting flexibility into the room is important in order for it to work for you now and for years to come. You should never opt for a wet room or shower in place of a bath, for instance, because future buyers will always want a bath. But if you can fit both in, or at least a power shower over the bath, all the better.

Use space wisely

If there is space, think big - double sinks aren't just fashionable and a draw for future buyers – they are very practical, too. Try to create as much built-in storage -for towels and other bathroom accessories- as possible, which should save shelf space in other rooms.

Make your bathroom seem bigger

Bright lighting and large mirrors, pale, reflective flooring and subtle window treatments improve the amount of light (and the feeling of space) in what is often the smallest room in the house. Make use of large mirrors especially around the sinks.

Look for the best

The thing to remember about a bathroom makeover or design is that you really can't do it yourself. Plumbing, tiling and electrics all require professional expertise, and that costs money.

Try and shop around for the best price when purchasing the bathroom accessories but do not compromise on the manpower needed to install the fittings, otherwise it would all look dishevelled.
