  • If you’re looking to make your bathroom a cool and calm environment that you can’t wait to spend time in, there’s no need to spend on expensive fittings or splurge on extravagant extras. A few simple tweaks and smart choices will easily create the perfect bathroom setting you’re looking for.

    There are classic accessories and traditional materials you can work with to give your whole bathroom a brand new feel. Natural colours and textures are key to creating a simple but effective bathroom. Plus, a small bathroom can be completely transformed by a simple design – and if you are working on a budget, you can still achieve a luxurious finish without breaking the bank.

    If you want to create a glamorous vibe, but without going over the top, a free-standing bath in an otherwise paired-back bathroom will make for a striking centre piece that still looks clean and fresh.

    Or, you could add some stylish touches to a neutral bathroom by opting for some varied textures. Knitted or woven bathmats in cream, grey or white will add depth and a luxe, sensory element to your bathroom. Layering woven fabric over a plastic shower curtain will have the same effect.

    You can still work pattern and more elaborately designed furniture into your simple bathroom design. A frosted film on your bathroom window that features a decorative pattern is both practical and stylish. A vintage console table in an otherwise modern bathroom will also add an extra focal point to give your bathroom an on-trend mix of sleek design and traditional elements.
