Glam up your bathroom*

Earlier this week I posted on how you can spruce up your bathroom as a new home-owner. Truth be told, all bathrooms need a update every now and again, even if you haven’t just bought the place! 

It’s really easy for bathrooms to look old and tired pretty quick.

In general, the bathroom and toilet is the room that is often neglected in a lot of properties. After all, it’s just a ‘functional’ room more, so-to-speak. 

However, this does not mean that your bathroom should be any less stylish than the rest of the house. 

With that in mind, read on to discover some of the best ways to glam up your bathroom…whether you’ve just moved in, or in dire need to update the bathroom, like the rest of your property!

Create a zen feel with natural elements

Give your bathroom a calming and relaxed feel by using wood as a decorative element. Using wood as a horizontal wall design gives the feel of a high-end ski lodge or resort. To complete the soothing look, pair the wood accents with natural décor accents and neutral paint colours.

Update your bathroom taps

A small change can go a big way. Upgrading your bathroom taps can make a massive difference. You can find plenty of lavish, modern designs at the likes of If you really want to up the glam stakes, why not go for gold? Of course, make sure they fit in with the rest of your bathroom; you want them to look elegant after all.

Tile your bathroom
Tiling your bathroom may not sound very glamorous. However, it is all about how you do it. Installing a glass tile back-splash in beautiful colours is a great way to create an artsy bathroom. A bathroom that is tiled floor and wall can create a much more glamorous bathroom too, but be careful, its a nightmare to clean!!

Add a lavish chair
Bathroom furniture will give the room an instant upgrade. By adding a uniquely designed chair to your bathroom, it will create a spot for relaxation, making the room look more expensive and glamorous.

Add a simple pop of colour 
Do you currently have a plain white bathroom? 
If so, one of the easiest ways to enhance the appearance of your bathroom is by adding simple pops of bold colours. For example, why not opt for aqua shelves and cabinets? You don’t need to add a lot of colour. In fact, you need to be careful regarding how you do it, to ensure you end up with a bathroom that looks expensive rather than one that looks cheap. 
The key is to select one colour for an accent, and then repeat it throughout the room. Inexpensive accident pieces that can make a big difference include a mirror frame, artwork, towels, and a rug.

Bring the outdoors in
For your bathroom makeover; look for different ways to bring the outdoors inside. Plants not only add beauty to your bathroom, but they improve the airflow in the room and make it much more relaxing.

Choose a simple colour palette
For ultimate glam, simple colour palettes are key. Why not try a colour generator such as There really is no need to over complicate things. If you go into any high-end spa, you will see that simple materials and colours are the preferred choice. This is no coincidence; it creates a soothing and relaxing vibe. If you are struggle to choose a colour scheme, why not opt for monochrome? This is an easy place to start and you can’t really go wrong.

Update your bathroom lighting
Lighting is something that is often overlooked when it comes to room design. However, it can make all of the different. Changing your bathroom lighting is one of the easiest ways to turn the room into a complete show stopper. To create a designer look, re-think how lighting is usually used in a bathroom. For example, a lot of bathrooms will have a traditional light bar placed above a mirror, so why not do things differently? For example, you could place elegant sconces on either side.
Think about those finishing touches
Last but not least, add some lavish finishing touches that will give your bathroom a five-star edge. For example, why not invest in a bath tray? You can relax in a bubble bath with a glass of wine on an evening, or read a book! Or, for ultimate luxury, why not invest in a TV for your bathroom? After all, what could be more relaxing than soaking in the bath with your favourite drink while you catch up on your favourite TV show.

So there you have it; plenty of different suggestions you can use to give your bathroom a glamorous makeover. From adding a lavish chair to bringing the outdoors in, there are many ideas you can make the most of, and a lot of them don’t cost much either. 

Your bathroom will become your new favourite place in the home!
