Over time, the humble bathroom has transformed from an entirely practical room to a space that can provide a calming retreat at the end of a busy day and encourage that all-important self-care.
If you have overlooked the importance of the bathroom in your home and it’s crying out for a bit of TLC, then it could be the perfect candidate for your next home project.
We can spend quite a lot of our time in our bathrooms which means it’s important to create a beautiful, comfortable space that helps you to feel good.
Here are a few tips to help give your bathroom a well-deserved makeover.
Maximise the space
Although there will be limitations in your bathroom due to plumbing, drainage and ventilation requirements, make sure your layout maximises the space available as best you can.
Bathrooms are often one of the smaller rooms in the home but you still want to make sure you’re making the most of it.
If you cannot improve the layout of the bath/toilet/basin then think about storage options such as shelves and cabinets.
Experiment with different colours
An easy way to breathe new life into your bathroom is to change up the colour.
The good news is that your bathroom is a space where you can go quite bold with colour if you like. Greens and blues work well and also provide a sense of calm and tranquillity.

Focus on the small details
The little details can really make such a difference in interior design. You could put a gorgeous print on the wall, use pretty baskets for storage and add candles or reed diffusers to create a beautiful scent as soon as you walk in.
One detail you should consider very carefully is your bathroom mirror. Mirrors have the power to transform a room – they can reflect light and make a space look bigger than it really is. Take time to source the perfect mirror for your space. You could opt for a whole-wall mirror or find one with a stunning, unique frame that really makes a bold statement.
Add luxury touches
If your budget will stretch to it, consider adding a few luxurious touches for the ultimate bathroom space.
Underfloor heating is perfect for bathrooms and will help to create a warm, cosy feeling which you will really appreciate during the cold, winter months.
You could incorporate a sound system with speakers built into the ceiling. Perhaps even a television at the end of your bath so that you can watch your favourite Netflix series while soaking in bubbles. Bliss!
Whatever design you choose, make sure your bathroom is a place you enjoy spending time and where you can make your own self-care a priority.
