Your bathroom should be a calming space unique to you!

When it comes to your home, the bathroom is often overlooked. Some may think of it as a room of pure function, whereas it can be a space that can be personalised and made into a sanctuary, away from the chaos of everyday life. A haven of happiness and revitalisation where you can truly unwind and relax. Whether it is a soothing shower, a warm bubble bath or the space to take care of yourself, the bathroom should be a calming space personal to you.

There is a vast variety of different styles and vibes that a bathroom can have. This comes down to multiple factors, such as:


Tiles are a bathroom staple and can come in almost any design, texture, colour and material you could think of, so you can get super specific when it comes to choosing what you want. Tiles are one of the most effective and common elements within a bathroom that people use to change the look and feel of the room. For example, black tiles can give off a dark and moody vibe whereas white tiles can create a more uplifting and spacious feel. 


Fixtures are permanent features of your bathroom that are plumbed or wired in and cannot be easily moved. Examples of this are bathtubs, showers, toilets, sinks, taps etc. 

Fixtures come in a variety of different colours, materials and textures to again give your bathroom that personal style you love. An example of a common, modern look includes glossy white bathtubs, toilets, sinks and elegant stainless steel taps. This creates a clean, timeless look allowing the tiles to be the stand-out feature. However, the style of fixtures can be much more bold and can be cleverly paired with the tiles to create a design you love. 


On top of the interior design, the layout of a bathroom is also a crucial factor to consider. Due to the varying sizes, dimensions and features like windows in a bathroom, every bathroom is inherently unique. Therefore a personalised design is needed to make the most of your space. There should be a functional and convenient flow to where things are placed, how they work and how they influence the space. For example, you don’t want to be putting a toilet or towel rack behind a door as it will bang on each other and leave marks. Another common mistake is not factoring in the cabinet doors opening. Over time, poor layout design will likely increase your frustration or lead to things breaking so it is important to get it right from the start.
