Avoid these 7 bathroom design mistakes and discover indoor space and grace you never knew you had.
Clutter makes a small space look even smaller. It’s important to keep items on display to a minimum. So, this means packing away your hair dyer after you use it, along with your toiletries and other bathroom products.
2. Drab lighting
Poor lighting in a bathroom can really affect the atmosphere and bathroom design, especially if it highlights an odd or cluttered space. Try installing lights in the middle of the ceiling or around the mirror to help brighten up the room. Mirror lights also serve a functional purpose, as you won’t leave the house with foundation on your face that doesn’t match your body.
3. Using a toilet rug
A styling no-no is a rug wrapped around the base of the toilet. Besides collecting germs, it really doesn’t serve much of a purpose – except making people think you’re much older than you actually are!
4. Grubby shower curtain
Changing the curtain is an easy and inexpensive way to freshen up a bathroom – but before you splash your cash, try putting your old shower curtain through the washing machine with two towels (to prevent it from crinkling), some laundry soap and a tablespoon of eucalyptus oil. Hang it on the line in the sun – it might scrub up okay.
5. Raggedy towels on display
Having fresh, fluffy towels hanging on your towel rack can make a great deal of difference in terms of brightening up a worn-out space. Try colour coordinating your towels with the colour scheme of your bathroom.
6. Not enough storage
7. A big empty bathroom without personality
This is a good problem to have. Having a large bathroom is a great advantage – but not if you don’t make the most of it. Try adding a vase of flowers to your vanity, a mat to the tiles and an artwork on the wall. These tricks can space out the room nicely.
