Five ways to give your bathroom a new look.

 

If you’ve hankered after an upgrade to your bathroom suite all year, now is the time to do it. On the whole, summer makes DIY jobs easier to complete; you can store things in your garden or spend more time outside yourself, giving things like painting and caulking extra time to dry. But what kind of look should you be aiming for?

 

Stuart Marsden, managing director of The Bathroom Place, based in Dereham, shares five top tips for giving your bathroom a summer refresh.

 

 

FLOATING VANITIES

 

The space saving storage and crisp lines of floating vanities offer a contemporary feel to your bathroom. There are lots of customisation options on offer to fit any style of space.

 

 

ROUND BACK-LIT OR LED MIRRORS – The perfect mirror is an essential

 

bathroom accessory which can have a real impact on the final aesthetic.

 

With trends favouring a mix of softer lines and organic shapes, a large round mirror is the perfect option if you want to modernise your space.

 

Framed or un-framed with back- lit options, these beauties will help you achieve the perfect dramatic impact.

 

 

SPACE-SAVVY SOAKING TUBS

 

The pandemic has increased homeowners’ desire for rest and relaxation. Whatever the size of your bathroom, making time for a long soak in the bath is key to recovery after a long and busy day. Whether it be freestanding or not, bathtubs are key for any bathroom space. A smaller size bathtub is kinder to the environment, using less water and time to fill.

 

 

METALLICS

 

Metallics are back! The Bathroom

Place is seeing an increase in the use of a range of metallics in bathrooms – and it looks cool.

This has always come with an expensive price tag but now what we can offer is great value for money. We have expanded our range from everyday chrome and

gold to a range of other finishes, from nickel, brass, stainless steel to matte blacks and whites.

 

 

COLOUR IS BACK!

 

There’s no denying it: colour is back.

We are shifting from the dull,

white, sanctuary-looking bathrooms to something more statement, and we have seen a rise in colour in bathroom design.

Be it funky tiles, statement wallpaper or a striking vanity – don’t be shy to go bold. Greens are set to be big this year, whether you go for dark smokey forest greens or brighter olive tones.

 

Bathroom wallpaper continues to weave its magic through our homes with bold patterned designs stealing the show – even in the wettest parts of our bathrooms.

 

Mr Marsden says that the team at The Bathroom Place aims to keep up to speed with the latest trends and interiors: “Whether you are looking for a specific product or

an all-in-one service, from design to installation – we are the place for you.

 

“Even if you have firm ideas about what you love, our team of interior designers can add interesting details or styles, combining textures and colours in new and exciting ways to really add something extra to your finished bathroom.”
