Bathroom / April 7, 2018 / Gaetane Noemi.
We all need more space to stash our two-for-one shampoo offers these days, but it’s important that storage is well made. Go for wood veneer where possible, or a hard-wearing lacquered finish – neither will date or look cheap.
Before you select good colours for small bathrooms or the more spacious ones, take some out to put your plan on paper. You can draw simple sketches of your bathroom. Use the colour you actually intend to introduce in the bathroom. You may use coloured pens or crayons for that. See how it looks on paper. Consider ordering samples of paints of your chosen shade before purchasing the required quantity. Apply the colour on the wall and see how it looks. If you are satisfied with it proceed with your order. Otherwise, consider changing it.
Lighting is often overlooked in bathrooms, but your budget doesn’t need to stretch to a professionally designed lighting scheme. Just fit a dimmer switch, so you can transform the mood at a twist of a button, and buy a mirror with lights built into the sides. Lighting around a mirror should come from the sides, as well as from above, to avoid shadows on your face when applying make-up or shaving.
For those who love long soaks, it’s worth investing in a cast- stone bath. Cast stone is great at retaining water temperature, so you’ll save the cost of heating any extra you have to add to your old tub. The mineral-packed surface will resist wear and tear in the long term, too, as scratches can be easily polished out.
