Decorating Tips For Your Bathroom
A bathroom is one of those rooms in your household where you are unsure where to start when decorating your bedroom. It isn’t just a simple, fresh paint over the walls to do the trick with some bathrooms. Sometimes it can involve the whole bathroom requiring a change.
The thing is, the bathroom should never be the last room to decorate. You should do it in the order you spend the most time in. This should be your living room, then your bedroom and then your bathroom, then your kitchen. Furthermore, a well-decorated bathroom can distract people from the other downfalls in the bathroom.
There are many simple tips and tricks you can do to your bathroom to make it fit in with the rest of your household. Interior design is something that everybody adores but few can afford. Nonetheless, there are affordable strategies to decorate your bathroom. Now, let’s look at the ways you can make your bathroom a little better than it already is.
Firstly, you need to sort the colour scheme of your bathroom. It is arguably the best method to redecorate any room in your household.
A white and black colour scheme is the easy go-to for bathroom decoration. However, this is a basic look and dirt can show very easily on white flooring/tiles.
Some people like to stick to one colour scheme throughout their household. Others will swap the colour scheme in each room. Whatever you decide on, we suggest you stick to that colour scheme.
One thing you should always consider when picking a colour scheme is how the colours can affect your mood. For example, a light-coloured green can make you feel more relaxed whereas pink/red gives a more romantic feel to your bathroom.

Bathroom flooring is one of the first things to consider when redecorating your bathroom. Additionally, it can be the most expensive change to your bathroom, depending on the other things you are changing. It can be an expensive change but it’s worth every penny!
Vinyl tiling or laminate flooring is an affordable choice for the floor. It is a simple change but it makes a big difference when redecorating your bathroom with a much better stylish touch.
Another type of flooring you can choose is real wood although this is more expensive. Nonetheless, it is a highly durable flooring that can practically last a lifetime if you look after it. If you are worried about the floor being too slippy or splinters, place some bathroom mats that go with the rest of the decor in your room.
Although a simple paint-over can transform your bathroom, there are other methods. A simple change of tiles is another way to make your bathroom more decorative than it already is.
If you are stuck on a tight budget, buy a tub of paint. However, don’t just paint each wall the same colour. Paint three walls that are identical to one another and then have one that is different to the others. You can always go with the industrial style and leave the bricks/ concrete showing.

Get Creative With Faucets and Basins
Moving onto the more expensive side of decorating your bathroom, focusing on your basin(sink) and faucet(tap) is another way to give your restroom more life. Many people choose a plain white basin with a simple faucet that has a cold and hot side. However, there are so many types of basins that you can choose for your bathroom.
If you would like to create more storage in your bathroom, a vanity unit might be the better option. Not only this but it hides away all of the piping in the cupboard if you don’t want that on show. The reverse of this is to have a hanging basin on your bathroom wall with the pipes showing. Depending on the colour scheme of your bathroom, you can choose copper or chrome-finished pipes. Both of these look great in a bathroom although they need to fit the rest of the colour scheme.
Unless you have a large cupboard in the corner of your bathroom where you can store your towels and bathroom products, bathroom storage is something you should consider.
Bathroom storage design is a great way to create more storage space and decorate your bathroom. One thing you need to be wary of when choosing this method is to consider the household you live in. Having shelving in your bathroom which would be within the reach of a toddler is not advised, especially if you are the type to have candles or expensive ornaments on these shelves.
Don’t Forget About Your Windows
Up next, we have bathroom windows. It is a simple method of redecorating that people always forget about in their bathroom. Not to mention there are so many options for window decoration.
There are a few things to remember when choosing your window decoration. Window blinds in your bathroom window are advised. That could be drapes or PVC blinds that are 100% waterproof. Something else you need to consider is the colour of those blinds. For example, you can choose bright blinds that stand out from the rest or, you can stick to a theme. If your bathroom has that oak wood feel, choose faux wood blinds.
There are hundreds of different designs to choose from when picking your blinds so we advise visiting a store to see your options. Speak to specialists and they will guide you on the material you should choose. This could be a small store that sells window blinds in Surrey or a more commercial blinds company. Both will be able to provide you with the information you need.
As you can see, there are many ways to decorate your bathroom. If you want to keep it on the cheap side, buy rugs and repaint your walls. If you have more of a budget, consider retiling, buying new blinds and choosing a more decorative basin and faucet to fit the rest of the theme in your bathroom. Even some lighting trends can be a great way to take your bathroom to the next level on a more affordable scale.
