Follow these expert tips to create a bathroom of beauty.
“My favourite part of designing bathrooms are the finishes,” says Kate Arends, designer and founder of the lifestyle brand Wit & Delight. “I love thinking about the way tile would feel beneath my toes, the way a paint colour can bring a soothing or energetic vibe and the feeling of a great material beneath your hands as you turn on the water for a shower.”
Arends recommends experimenting with non-traditional finishes. “I love Champagne finishes, so I opted to include those in my remodelled bathroom. In another bath, I chose Matte Black, giving the bath a high contrast, modern and casual look all at the same time.”
“Adding greenery (faux or real) and baskets can brighten and warm up a bathroom,” says home design expert Elsie Larson, co-founder of A Beautiful Mess. The proximity to several water sources will likely keep you from forgetting to water your precious plants!
