10 tips for the ultimate bathroom

By: Lesley Young
No matter how big or small your space is, the elements for the ultimate bathroom remain the same. Keep these 10 essential tips in mind when planning a bathroom renovation and the results will be a styilsh and functional space. 

1 Measure, measure, measure
Make a list of all the dimensions (from room size to space between fixtures).

2 Think about lighting needs
Ambient light is just as important as task lighting in the bathroom.

3 Pedestal or vanity?

Remember a pedestal visually enlarges a room but keeps storage to a minimum.

4 Factor in all your heat requirements

Nobody likes a frigid bathroom.

5 Clear the air
Always install a ventilation fan to eliminate steam and fog on mirrors.

6 Keep it soft

Think of adding room for a chair or a covered stool for comfort and visual fun!

7 Add easy personal touches
This can be done by using vintage or antique finds as bathroom accessories.

8 Wall colour

The wall paint colour should be subtle, and not dominate a bath. Choose a shade that’s restful and soothing.

9 Fresh blooms

Even in a minimal space, flowers add focus and a welcome layer of natural colour. Make sure you have fresh blooms on hand.

10 Wainscotting

Wainscotting is a bathroom cure-all. Whether it’s subway tiles or beadboard, nothing pulls together the look of a bathroom better than wainscotting.
