Bathe your bathroom in inspiration
It’s one of the major selling points of your home: the humble bathroom. It can also be costly to renovate. Here at Lugtons we’ve got you covered, with a shower of ideas to decorate and inspire your bathroom space. So, whether you’d like to bathe your space in vibrant colours, splash some character throughout the room, or add in clean lines and elements, there is a design option to suit everyone (no matter the budget).
Add a splash of paint
From soft neutrals to adventurous neons, adding a touch of paint to a bathroom space can not only change the look of the environment, but the feel too.
Yes, some tones can be intimidating, but you don’t always have to go for adventurous colours. Sophisticated grey tones can transform a space to create a cosy feel, perfect for when you want to relax. Or, why not look at a timeless beige for a low-key and approachable elegance – ready for when you need to escape the kids for a serene space. Want to be more adventurous? Go on-trend and use a dark, vibrant blue which, contrary to popular belief, can make a modest bathroom appear luxe and expansive.
Transform with texture
That’s right, you don’t always have to add paint to create a stylish bathroom. Tiles are a great, and relatively inexpensive, way to help modernise your bathroom space while maintaining its functionality. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing, they can create texture two-fold, either in the physical tile, or by using a mix of colours in their application. Oh, and did we mention they are easy to maintain? They’re quick to clean, can endure a good amount of wear and tear, and encompass properties that don’t support mould or mildew. Tick, tick and tick!
Don’t forget about your accents! If tiles are out of your budget, or may be pushing the boundaries of your DIY skills, a textured towel or bathmat can act as that special element to create much-needed intrigue and excitement. Towels come in an array of colours and patterns, and – if you find a good sale – are an extremely cost-effective way to transform your space!
The art of layering
As the days and nights get colder, it might be time to start thinking about layers… of the interior kind. Typically used to create interest, texture, and depth (read: space), there are tons of reasons to go multi-dimensional. If you’re starting from scratch, here are our top tips to make the most out of your washroom space:
- Use what you already have. Interior layering refers to utilising a random grouping of items to create a unique combination of objects – don't be afraid to combine old with new, big with small.
- Use a variety of widths, heights and sizes. Different sizes create interest, capture attention, and add depth to a space – your bathroom included.
- If in doubt, throw in a plant. Something living always adds a fresh element to a man-made layered arrangement.
