I probably spend too much time planning my dream bathroom, especially since I discovered Pinterest :) I could browse the images all night, until I fall asleep with my face stuck to my iPad, haha. If you love home decor, you might find this guest post interesting.
"From big and beautiful to small and stylish, bathrooms come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Make the most of your essential, functional space with design ideas that offer style as well as substance.
Whether revamping your existing room or adding an extra facility in the form of an en-suite, why not consider a few of the following hints and tips to make your bathroom a beautiful and practical place to be?
Short on space
Give small bathrooms or shower rooms the illusion of a little more space with an effective tiling trick. Apply plain tiles in a neutral shade then co-ordinate with an alternative coloured tile in a horizontal stripe around the room. This clever tiling trick has the visual effect of widening the room.
If you long for both a bath and a shower but your room’s a little short on space, why not consider a space-saving suite?
An L-shaped or P-shaped bath incorporates one wider end which allows for a little more room to enjoy a shower without having to squeeze in both fittings as separate units.
Don’t worry about hot water
For households with a limited supply of hot water, Mira electric showers offer an ideal solution. Electric showers only use water from the cold mains supply and heat it courtesy of an internal element once turned on. You can enjoy a shower, safe in the knowledge that your stored hot water supply isn’t being consumed.
Small touches create big statements
Patterned tiles can crowd a small space, so opt for strategic sections of tiling to add an element of interest to bathrooms. Choose a small section of wall to tile with a patterned design. The interior of shower enclosures is an ideal space to consider. The remainder of the bathroom can then be covered with a complementary neutral colour.
For cloakrooms or shower rooms, wallpaper on the wall above the basin can create a stylish statement. A feature wall will lift the look of any bathroom but don’t hang the paper too close to the shower or you risk peeling.
De-clutter your design
If your bathroom isn’t particularly big, don’t overcrowd the space with shelving and storage. A mirrored cabinet provides a handy storage solution and a wall basin with an integrated towel rail offers a clever, space-saving touch.
Wall-hung basins are an ideal solution to suit minimalist design, the more wall space you can see, the larger and less cluttered the space appears. "
