Laurent. Bathroom. September 19th , 2017.
Add a hint of colour to a white suite, while a white bathroom suite is the best choice for opening up a small space, it can sometimes feel a little stark if the whole room is white. That’s why a hint of colour on the walls is the perfect compromise: light enough to create an airy feel, but with bags more character. Here, the storage alcoves were built from tongue-and-groove panelling, then painted in white to contrast with the raspberry walls and striking cobalt-blue tiles.
Think smart with a narrow space, in a narrow room, the best way of using the space can be to install a walk-in shower that fills the full width of the bathroom. But what if you have a window? The clever design shown here includes a frosted back panel that protects the window from splashes and provides privacy, but still lets in plenty of natural light. A ceiling-mounted shower and frameless shower door complete the sleek look.
On their online search, the owners had seen some glass spheres with plants inside hung on walls, and they loved the look. ‘We bought some glass orbs and vases on Etsy, and set to work, deciding on exactly where to position them on the wall, cutting pieces of paper to the size of each vessel and taking our time as we stuck these to the wall to see where they looked best,’ say the crafty pair. ‘Once we’d got them in a position that we felt was just right, we fixed the vases to the wall and filled them with plants and flowers from the garden.’
Consider adding a skylight, if possible, to open up your bathroom and create a light and airy space. White furnishings will help to bounce light around the room, meaning you can inject personality with a few interesting accessories. Lighting is key. Include task lighting next to mirrors and dimmable options in alcoves or behind a bath to create drama and mood. Make sure all light fittings have the correct IP rating for safe use in wet areas.
