Decorating Tips for A Luxury Bathroom

When redecorating a home, it is common to be confused when it comes to planning a new design scheme for your bathroom. Most homeowners find it easy to plan new ideas with the help of professional designers for the other areas around the house. Setting up or redesigning a living room or bedroom for that matter is always an exciting prospect.

However, you can experience the same type of excitement when planning a new design for your bathroom, too. To start off though, you should always plan the type of look, ambience or theme you would want for the space. Once you have that planned, it is all the more easier to start working on it. If you want a luxurious ambience in your bathroom, then the decorating tips below may help.

The Colour Matters

A luxurious bathroom is one that looks clean, classy and sophisticated. This is why you have to plan the colour combination smartly. Most high-end hotels sport beige, white, light brown or similar shades and colours in their bathrooms in order to create a luxurious get-up. You can always opt for shades of earthy colours to suit the rest of the house and create a luxurious effect. Bright colours usually don’t give the same impressions as subtle, more mature shades do.

Furthermore, when planning the colour combination of the bathroom, it is important to match your colour scheme to the rest of your home’s pattern. Size of the tiles also matters; bigger is better, but big tiles can also be combined with a contrasting mosaic tile detail. When you hire professional painters and decorators in London, such as Propertk Ltd, they will be able to advise you on what shade would suit your bathroom the best.

Choose fancier sinks and taps

Focus on the kind of sink design you choose when doing up your bathroom. A luxurious effect can only happen if you place things differently and choose unique designs. Traditional sink designs may not give you the effect of a luxurious bathroom. Wall mounted sink units without pedestal are always a good option.

If you have a larger budget, you can have the deep end ones, too, that are installed in their own casing. It will give the effect of a luxurious hotel room.

A free standing bath with a carefully chosen tap and a large frameless shower enclosure with concealed pipework and large shower head will make a huge difference to the overall feel of the room. It is even better if you have the possibility to go for a wet room type shower enclosure where the shower tray is flush with the floor.

Also good idea to fit a wall hung toilet with a concealed cistern as wall mounted furniture will not only make bathrooms look clean and streamlined but also easier to keep clean.

Limited Storage

One thing about luxury is the lack of clutter. Try not to choose too many storage cabinets to install in and around the bathroom. A wall mounted basin vanity unit with drawers could be the neatest and most practical solution to keep all the toiletries out of sight. Going for built in storage also a good option if possible with glass doors. Overall try to keep the floor area clear.

Another key point to remember is that a luxurious effect can easily be achieved with glass shelves. It also serves the purpose of helping you find your things easily and gives the impression of a neater look. Practicality is just as important as style.

Invest in glass, quality accessories and good lighting

Glass interiors can always help you achieve your luxurious theme. Glass is a volatile material and can be installed to make rooms look bigger and brighter. Have a huge mirror if you must with adequate lighting and a large glass wall on one side for maximum effect.

These simple tips will help you get your desired luxurious look quite easily. For more information on painting and decorating tips, contact Propertk Ltd on 020 7697 9358.

"Tibor did some extensive renovation work to the exterior and interior of our property a few years ago. The work is immaculate, he is meticulous and thorough, and a perfectionist, and will always get to the root of the problem, before doing any surface decoration. I would highly recommend his services."
