Ways to update your bathroom

The bathroom might be one of the smallest and most utilitarian rooms in the house, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with the decor. Often overlooked in the style stakes, bathrooms can easily reflect your personality just as much as any other room.

Transforming your bathroom from a drab suite to a spa-like haven will not only add value to your property, but it will also become a beautiful getaway for you to pamper, indulge and spoil yourself in. Escape every day life, relax after a busy day or wake up to an invigorating shower in your personalised bathroom.

If you are looking to create a feminine and personal space to spend time in, turn your bathroom into a decadent dressing room complete with dressing table, chair and even a mannequin to hang your clothes on. Flocked wallpaper, freestanding baths and painted floorboards all add up to a feeling of complete luxury.

Or, design a bathroom that is completely up-to-date with all of the latest technology, statement features and sculpted fittings. Invest in designer extras such as chrome taps, or choose an expensive-looking feature, like double basins or large mirrors, to give your bathroom an instantly extravagant feel – without the price tag.

And remember: Design is all in the details, so don’t forget to consider all of the little extras. Everything from tiles, to splash backs, flooring and even soft furnishings all make a big difference to the look of your brand new bathroom design…
