A bathroom is a little haven where you can relax away from the stresses and strains of everyday life. Therefore it is important that you design your bathroom correctly to create a calming and tranquil space. With so many things to think about it can often be a hard task to know where to start. This article provides four top tips that will help you to design your dream bathroom in no time at all.
Make a Plan
The first step to designing your bathroom is to create a scaled down plan of the space that you have to work with. To do this, take a tape measure and calculate the exact width, length and height of your bathroom. You can then scale down these measurements using a calculator, and use them to draw a plan with pencil onto paper. Use this plan to sketch ideas on, and be sure to take it with you if you are going to look at any bathroom cabinets in store.
Get Some Inspiration
Now it’s time to get some inspiration for your new bathroom. A good idea is to make a moodboard of the styles, colors and cabinets that you like. You can find images of stylish bathrooms by searching for them online. Alternatively you can try looking in home design magazines, or directly in bathroom cabinet stores to find things that you like. This process will shorten the amount of time that you will spend deciding on what you would like to have in your bathroom – and it is fun too!
Make a List
Now make a list of all the features that you would like to have in your bathroom. Think about the type of sink, bath, shower, bathroom cabinets and towel racks that you want to install. You can then take a look at images and specifications of the corresponding cabinets and note down their measurements. Use your plan to arrange these features in your bathroom. Remember, for a great result it is best to pick styles of cabinet that are similar or matching in order to create a nice uniform look through the bathroom.
All About the Accessories
The accessories will add the finishing touches to your bathroom. Try and bring in a colour or two into the bathroom area to make it more attractive. You can choose accessories that are this colour, such as the towels and flannels. A mirror is essential in any bathroom, so you can have a mirror fronted bathroom medicine cabinet over the sink. You can also have a full length standing mirror positioned in the bathroom so that you can see your full reflection. Smaller personal touches will also add a cosy feel to your bathroom area. Line several candles up along the side of the bath, so that you can bathe in candlelight when you choose to do so. A small vase of fresh flowers will brighten up the room and give off a beautiful scent too.
