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