10 tips for the ultimate bathroom

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.
