It can often seem like the bathroom is the most difficult room to transform as often it is the most ‘fixed’. The basics such as the bath, toilet, shower, and basin are a hassle to change, and it can feel like they dominate the look of the room as a whole. However, a few small changes can make a big difference. These changes do not have to be time-consuming or particularly arduous, although you can choose your level of commitment and whether you want to do more.
Read on for four easy ways you can overhaul the look and feel of your bathroom
The Colour Scheme
Most bathrooms built today are white, and for good reason, as it can make a smaller space feel bigger, and it is less likely to become dated. However, an all-white bathroom can also feel a little cold and, frankly, boring. Updating your colour scheme can completely change the look of your bathroom. It can be difficult to choose a new colour scheme, but it’s entirely up to your personal preferences, and you can go as bold or as subtle as you like. You don’t even have to paint the walls; you can simply get new soft furnishings or accessories, which will help.
As mentioned above, plain white can be boring, and most bathrooms have similar plain white tiles on the walls and often the floor too. Simply changing out one of these can make a big difference. Igloo has a huge range of bathroom wall panels to choose from. These panels can be affixed atop your current tiles, making them easy to install, and it’s a great way to make your bathroom feel more unique. The same can be said for the floor, as there are a huge number of tile decals or stickers that you can use to revamp the look of your floor if you’d prefer that over the walls.
Your choice of bathroom accessories can help you to realize your vision. Depending on the theme or vibe you are going for, swapping out some accessories can totally change the feel of the room. For example, natural textures such as wood or bamboo have a more organic feel, or metals can give a more industrial look, et cetera. So, think carefully about the vibe you are going for. A quick trip to the shops and your bathroom will feel completely different and depending on the shop it shouldn’t cost you too much either.
Finally, your window dressings are another perfect place to add a pop of colour or texture. Whilst most bathrooms come with blinds as a standard; you may want to consider swapping them out for shutters. Shutters are far more chic, and they allow more natural light in. They are also often easier to clean too.
Bathrooms are the only other room – besides the bedroom – where people bookend their days. They are meant to be paragons of calmness or R&R and should be treated as such. Consider the purpose that your bathroom serves for you and who uses it, as this may affect some of the features that you can incorporate.
