Place The Tiles Diagonally
If you have a smaller bathroom area then this layout is for you. Laying out the tiles diagonally will make space feel opened up giving it a wider area look. By laying the tiling diagonally you are also giving the bathroom a more fancy look, instead of laying it in the conventional horizontal or vertical way. So you are achieving a fancier look with no extra cost just by changing the layout of the tile. This just signifies how to use your selections that will go a long way to add value to your overall project. You can also cover the walls up to the top with tiles to add dimension and a little sparkle to the look. You can do the tile work on your own if you have an adventurous DIY flair, saving you more money.
Use Real Curtains For Your Shower
Choosing to have curtains rather than sliding doors for your tub will give your bathroom a luxurious look for sure. But this will work a lot better if you get the actual bedroom curtains instead of those that are meant for the bathroom. There are quite a few collections for you to choose from and getting silk or silk like curtains will do the job of adding luxury the best. Pair it with the best memory foam bath mat to complete the luxe look.
Install Large-Scale Lighting
The light fixtures you use in the bathroom can serve more purpose than just brightening up space. If you go for light fixtures on a larger scale, such as flush-mount chandeliers, then you can have a pretty big impact on the overall look. The best part is that all of this is going on with fixtures and not taking up any space physically on the ground level. This is how you can make space your biggest luxury.
Decorate With Plants
Many of you might not be very keen on placing any living object in the bathroom, but keeping plants in the bathroom can have its benefits. By getting plants that have a fresh look and putting them in galvanized planters in different corners of your bathroom will give it a larger look. Not to mention the fresh look your green-colored plants will bring. Don’t be worried about your plants withering inside the bathroom, plants such as orchids, aloe vera, and Boston ferns actually can thrive inside the bathroom.
An easy way to bring a luxurious feel to your bathroom is to hang a big piece of art on the wall. This will be even more effective if your bathroom is small. You can achieve wonders with big art in small bathrooms. Keep in mind though that the bathroom is a fairly moist place so you must make sure that the piece is properly framed to prevent any damage from steam or moisture. It might seem that a larger painting will visually serve to anchor a smaller space.
Hang An Uncommon Mirror
A large mirror is going to be very effective in changing the look of your bathroom. To give it a more elevated look you can choose a mirror that has a unique appearance and has uncommon finishings such as tortoiseshell, or gold. The best way to add drama and scale up the visual space of the bathroom is to get a large mirror that can extend up to the ceiling. You can choose a cut and design to go along with the look you want the rest of the bathroom to have, making the mirror an excellent accessory to glamorize a small bathroom space.
Get A Gold And Metallic Themed Accent
Brass was a very popular décor back in the 70s and 80s. And boy has it made a comeback. You can use brass or gold-toned metal in case you are looking to bring a warm and elegant feel to your bathroom. But you must be very careful when choosing the right shade, as a simple error in judgment can make an otherwise classy looking color tone feel quite garish. To avoid a dated look you can get fixtures that have sleek shapes and are brushed in gold hues. This will give a contemporary warm look to your bathroom.
Replace Your Dated Containers With Classy Ones
You have to be a lot more creative and stylish here than just going out and getting those accessory sets for your bathroom. Although it might seem very simple for you to get a toothbrush holder that matches your soap dispenser; but that might not seem very original and you run the risk of your bathroom looking pretty unimaginative. Rather you can get beautifully designed bottles of glass or some other classy material for your body wash, lotion, and shampoo. This way your bathroom will get a luxe feel. You can get amber glass containers and just think how well thought out your bathroom decor will look once you place all the different colored toiletries in those glass bottles.
Getting a luxurious look for your old bathroom is not a project that will break your bank or your back. All you need to do is plan wisely and choosy craftily to get the desired glamorous look that you were aiming for. Best of luck with your renovations.
