Interior Design Ideas for your Bathroom

Just because your bathroom is the most used, most functional, most cleaned room in the house; it doesn’t mean it has to be the most boring! Put a stamp of individuality that is more than a wet foot print on the bathrooms in your home.

Let’s look at some interior design ideas for your bathroom.
Think of a theme; would a Victorian bathroom suit your modern home? Perhaps you have a family bathroom where you children enjoy splash-time fun. Do you have a luxury en-suite where his & hers wash stations would not only look good but speed up bathroom rituals for busy workers?

Interior design ideas for your bathroom flooring – it doesn’t have to be industry standard beige tiling. You could try something like this blue pebble tile flooring, or wooden flooring specially treated for bathrooms. There are great designs on vinyl these days which can give your bathroom an individual look; replicate wooden floor boards, or go retro with one of these interesting designs. For the ultimate in luxury install underfloor heating and you need never step out of the shower onto a cold bathroom floor again!

Another important factor when considering interior design ideas for your bathroom is lighting. A mixture of fittings will work best.

Recessed ceiling lights above the shower or bath can be useful in providing bright task lighting.

Fit a dimmer switch to give subdued lighting for a long soak in the bath. Be sure to add LED mirror lighting, ideally either side of the mirror, this reduces shadows giving perfect lighting for applying make-up etc.

Don’t clutter up your sleek bathroom design with toiletries and other necessary bathroom bits. If you have the space contemporary or period vanity units are perfect for storage while blending in with your bathroom design. For those with limited space glass shelving or cabinets will give an ageless feel and help make the bathroom appear more spacious.

If you have a period home with a large bathroom why not break away from typical fully–tiled walls and choose a wallpaper (away from the shower wall of course). This bathroom decorated with Country Toile Wallpaper looks stunning, don’t you think? Tongue & Groove panelling painted blue gives a nautical feel, or the timeless checkerboard floor with deep red walls can have a striking effect.
