10. Luxurious Towels and Bathrobes
There’s no better way to hold on to that soothing post-soak feeling than by wrapping up in a towel or luxurious bathrobe. Keep the pantry stocked with a variety of these soft, ultra absorbent cloths and it won’t be so hard to pull yourself out of bed. Rather than simply “getting ready for work”, you’ll body will think it’s gone to the spa.
9. Work With What You’ve Got
The smallest, most oddly shaped rooms can be the most pleasing once you learn to stop fighting the quirks and work within the limits you’re given. For example, a pedestal tub and matching sink look like they’re floating and take up the least amount of precious space in a small room. Go bold without overpowering by painting or tiling one accent wall rather than all four.
Ever stop by the ladies’ room at a nice restaurant and feel like you’ve been completely transported? A combination of bold materials like copper and granite with soft, delicate curtains stimulates the senses. Custom copper sinks add a beautiful, timelessness to the space, and it’s not an illusion. When cared for properly, which isn’t difficult, these pieces will last for ages.
7. Thoughtful Flooring
Flooring is never to be overlooked, especially when creating dream bathrooms. It’s the feature your skin will touch the most, and the one you’ll clean most often. Consider durability, design and functionality when choosing between tile, vinyl and other common flooring materials.
6. An Efficient Cleanse
Looking for one change that will make a big impact? Consider switching out the traditional, water-wasting toilet for a more efficient and accurate bidet. Seats can be installed over your existing toilet, or opt for full bidets that include deodorizing units and driers.
Add a personal touch with a piece of wall art that reflects your ideal. Water may be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of restroom rituals. Water brings a sense of the serene, a willingness to linger. What images bring your peace of mind?
4. A Little Flair
Selecting the right shower curtain is an easy way to show off your eye for design, or simply jazz up an aesthetic that borders on plain. Remember, a shower curtain is changeable so you won’t be stuck with it if you don’t like it. A color design will really pop against neutral walls, or a pretty floral pattern can enhance a natural, earthy theme.
3. Ornate Details
Sometimes it’s the smallest details that leave the most striking impression. The window is one of the most comforting features a room can have; it brings in a fresh breeze and the sounds of birds singing or rain falling. Frame it with a gorgeous curtain rod that complements the room’s overall design, like one with brass pine cones or an elegant flourish on the end.
2. Grand Mirror
No dream bathrooms are complete without a perfect mirror to frame your face. Mirrors are versatile, so keep design elements in mind when choosing. For instance, if you’re going with busy wallpaper, stick with a simple frame and shape – no need to have competing features in a smaller space. Tempting as it may be to go large to make the space feel huge, scale is just as important. If the room is tight, opt for a long, narrow mirror.
1. Great Lighting
Popular Savings Offers
As the place haven for hair and makeup, you need to trust bathroom lighting. It should be flattering and relaxing, while still letting you know when that shimmery eye shadow isn’t working with the sparkly top. Begin with elegant lighting fixtures, and place them where they’re needed. Vanity lighting should go above or around the mirror to accurately illuminate the face. Whereas ambient lighting is daylight’s stand-in, meant to create a warm glow.
