Whether you have a simple 3-piece family bathroom, a sophisticated powder room or a spa style master ensuite – the bathroom is as fundamental an expression of your home’s style as any other room in the house. There are many ways that you can add personality to your bathroom, no matter the scope of your project, all while maintaining its functionality.
Bathrooms can be a place for experimentation with your personal style. Because they are generally a smaller room of the home, the fear of commitment is decreased; finishes such as vibrant pops of colour can be added to the most classic of décors in order to express your personality. Consider using feature finishes like wallpaper or hardware that add character and charm, the expense would be reasonable if you were to decide to change them later on, when you are inspired again. Don’t underestimate the impact of a mirrors, as they are not only a sophisticated accessory, they create the illusion of additional space and brightness. If you are feeling bold there are of course more options to personalize through selections of vanity, tile, fixtures, flooring, lighting, tub and toilet.
Functionality should be a consideration throughout your home, the bathroom is no exception. Adequate storage is an essential, your designer will be able to help you find creative solutions to maximize your space while retaining aesthetic balance. Functional storage options include medicine cabinets, towel shelving, cupboards or nooks, tub-side shelving, racks or trays.
Above and beyond function and fashion, the bathroom is a place to pamper yourself. Decide on which items you would like to indulge in, whether it be as grand as a soaker tub, convenient as a floating vanity or simple as a rain showerhead… everyone deserves to be spoiled in their personal space!
