Fleta Wuckert. Bathroom. October 11th , 2017.
A downstairs powder room is all too often decorated in exactly the same style as the room it happens to adjoin. In most home settings this means the rest room will have the same design as the hallway. However, there is no good reason that your corridor and powder room should share the same wallpaper and flooring. For the smallest room in the home, invest some thought into designing it just as you would for other living spaces. After all, your guests will be likely to pay the powder room a visit and a well designed one will make them feel comfortable in your home.
This idea entails open shelving being installed under the toilet sink to accommodate washed and dry towels, toiletry units for every member of the household and a towel rack for wet towels. Even the first aid box can fit into such shelving. One good thing about this type of shelving is that it does not necessarily have to take up any floor space. There are also already made roll-out under-sink drawers that are removable and helps you keep your bathroom organized in a minimal space.
Tiled walls are very practical in any bathroom or wet room. Break up the monotonous nature of some tiling designs with a few splashes of red here and there. A simple waist level band of red tiling, set against white, is a good look to go for. This will complement other red elements in the room no matter where they are positioned. Alternatively, a vertical stripe of red tiles behind your shower fitting can create a similarly dynamic look.
If replacing your bathroom’s suite is a little too much to take on straight after the Christmas frenzy, why not bring a little fun to your washroom by updating your choice of wall coverings. Add a selection of random tiles to your walls, and floor, so that you get a vibrant look. Alternatively, use a novelty bathtub and link it, visually, to your wall with a mural or by having some bespoke wallpaper made, like this wonderfully strange cow design. Alternatively, use the tiles themselves as a mural. Many tile manufacturers will be able to give you a range of tile finishes that will suit your mural design ideas. If you don’t have the budget for an extensive makeover in the New Year, update your bathroom with a few well chosen accessories. How about a simple wooden bath tub caddy? They are ideal if you like to have a drink or a book with you when you bathe and great if you want to balance a mirror to shave. There are some cool bath mats available these days which will update your washroom with a minimum of expenditure, but choose one that matches your towels.
