When redecorating or renovating a house, we don’t always give the bathroom much thought – as long as it’s clean, fresh and functional, we’re usually pretty happy! After a long day, there’s nothing better than a good soaking in a hot bath, so why not make your bathroom into a real sanctuary? We’ve put together our top 10 tips for bringing life and personality back into the most forgotten room in the home. Here at Shabby Store, we have a fantastic range of different accessories and ideas for the bathroom.
Who says your vintage finds have to stay in the living room? A battered chest, beautiful antique mirror or old fashioned framed poster will add elegance and charm to even the dingiest of downstairs loos.
If you’re keen to keep things nice and neutral, adding coloured tiles can be a great way to add pep and interest. Brighten up a gleaming white suite and make it glow with bold mosaic tiles.
Every bathroom has to have curtains or a blind for very obvious reasons, so why not make yours a bit more interesting? Boldly coloured or patterned fabric adds a fun pop of colour to thewindow area.
Introducing a little personality with fun matching bathroom accessories is guaranteed to give the room instant lift and quirkiness. At Shabby Store, we love this sweet ceramic set.
Real or fake, greenery makes any bathroom come to life. Place a pot or two of trailing green plants over a windowsill or cabinet and watch your blank, white tile come to life. Plus, all the steam will keep your leaves looking lush as a bonus!
Small, sweet ‘catchalls’ are making an appearance all over the place in the interior design world right now. Allowing you to display all of your favourite items as well as keeping them organized and to hand, attractive and decorative trays are a must in the modern bathroom.
Scented candles in a bathroom are nothing new but why not step up your game but creating a cluster of different sizes, shapes and colours? A simple way to make a statement.
It’s surprising to see just how much of a warming impact wood has on a cold, white-tiled bathroom. Take a simple light wood stool and place it below the sink or by the bath with a soft rug for a sweet, homely look. Useful if you have young kids too.
Rustic grey or cream linen napkins make for a pretty, Scandinavian pop. Place on your sink’s edge, towel rail or over the bath for that fresh and rustic look.
A new light fitting can make a really fantastic statement in any home’s tired old bathroom. Give the walls a lick of paint and fit up a crisp and modern ceiling light for that boutique hotel vibe.
