The two most expensive rooms in any house to renovate are the kitchen and the bathroom. Though in the kitchen you often times have lots of options when it comes to the bathroom we are very much restricted by the plumbing and existing tile work.
If you are like me you have probably spent a fair amount of time living in rented apartments and houses and when you could afford to buy your first house, invariably the bathroom was pokey.
Over time then, we have all gathered wisdom about the best ways to decorate or improve the feel and utility of the bathroom. For now let’s consider some basic ideas to improve the feel of the bathroom.
Your enemies in a small bathroom are clutter and light.
Remove physical clutter and visual clutter and instantly transform the feel and look of this room. There is nothing that will make the room feel even smaller than lots of tubes, bottles, jars, brushes, make up, soaps, bowls etc around the basin. (And that clothesline has got to go). If you absolutely must have them in the bathroom then keep them out of sight.
The other clutter is visual. Shower screens with big bold designs may appeal to the artist in you but for space, look to austere designs in light pastels or washed out colours. Similarly with pictures, rails and designs on walls, ceilings and if possible tiles. Keep it simple is good advice.
