Contemporary bathrooms are often sleek and minimalist spaces with clean lines and understated colour schemes. If well designed with the provision of adequate storage, modern bathrooms are triumphs of simplicity and are clutter free. They perfectly complement the current taste in interior décor and can be a great selling point for you home. But what if you wish to inject some character and perhaps a little glitz and glamour into your bathroom?
Happily the very simplicity of the contemporary look lends itself to the inclusion of a touch of sparkle. You can lift your space with sparkling features but without creating a garish or overbearing look. Your finishing touches will be glamorous rather than gaudy and will inject personality into your bathroom. Your bathroom might be a great place to relax and unwind but that doesn’t mean that it can’t be uplifting and glamorous too!
With white suites and neutral colours being the current trend it is all too easy to create a bland space in which all of the features simply merge into one. It is important to feature at least some contrast to define the space. Walls can be broken up and accented with wonderful mosaic tiles. Sparkling metallic mosaic tiles bring sparkle into the room and are an eye-catching detail which will reflect your personal style if you appreciate the glamorous things in life. Choose mosaic tiles in silver, gold, copper or bronze to create stunning feature walls and shower enclosures or to break up monochrome walls.
You can also create an exciting and contemporary floor using granite or quartz tiles with gold or silver flecks. These stunning tiles create texture and interest and also catch the light beautifully to bring life into the room. The tiles are available in a variety of colours and sizes to suit your needs and lend a luxurious and opulent feel to your bathroom.
The toilet seat can often be a bit of an afterthought but it is an accessory which can be used to great effect. A sparkling toilet seat has the wow factor and turns your toilet from something purely functional into a decorative item that will always raise a smile.
Reflecting light into the room and enhancing the feeling of space, mirrors serve a variety of purposes and are always essential additions to your bathroom. A large mirror is a bold statement but one which suits a small room. However, if you don’t have the wall space to accommodate a larger style then choose an interesting or unusual decorative mirror that will draw the eye in more ways than one.
Accessories and Finishing Touches
You won’t want to clutter your bathroom with too many accessories and decorations but a few carefully chosen pieces could make all the difference. Feature sparkling soap dispensers and a glamorous waste bin to lift the room. You could also choose a striking sculpture or metallic wall sculpture to create a focal point that completes your skilful bathroom design.
A little sparkle goes a long way in the bathroom and will help you to create a unique and memorable space with the feel good factor.
