Laurent. Bathroom. April 24th , 2018.
When the time came to redecorate their bathroom, the owners turned to social media to inspire their fabulous new scheme. ‘When we moved in, we weren’t keen on the bathroom, but it had some nice features,’ say the owners. ‘We liked the shape of the basin, the bath was comfy and the big window kept the room bright.’
Accessorise away! If you don’t have the budget to give your entire bathroom a makeover, accessories will do wonders for a compact space. Choose a theme – coastal, floral or monochrome are all bang on trend and are easy to implement. Apply the style of your chosen trend to lighting, mirrors, smaller accessories and soft furnishings and instantly transform the space.
Work in wall-hung units, floating fittings visually max the space, as more of the floor can be seen, and make cleaning a breeze. You can always use the area underneath to store toiletries in pretty wicker baskets. A palette of off-whites and tonal greys will make your bathroom feel large and airy, while wall integrated taps keep the look minimal and well-finished.
Make space beneath the eaves, compact fittings are a big help in awkward-shaped loft spaces. Don’t worry about trying to fit a bath – go for a luxurious glass shower enclosure instead. It’s common with loft conversions and attics to box in parts of the room that have a reduced ceiling height for storage. But instead, why not look at ways to work around the reduced heights? A toilet or basin is a smart idea.
