Toilet decor tips
Hidden storage vs open shelving
First of all, let’s look at this storage thing. Clothes, towels, toothbrushes and much more end up in the bathroom. If you don’t have a good system for this, the bathroom risks becoming messy and inhospitable. Therefore, it is especially important to have good storage options in the bathroom.
At the same time, there are certain things that you actually want to be seen and lying in front of the toilet. An example of this is stylish towels. Get a nice shelf with open shelves and fold your best towels and place them on the shelf. This also makes it easy to play with different color combinations. For example, you can pick up the color you have on the floor in the bathroom and match it with the towels. This creates a nice dynamic in the coloring.
A bathroom cabinet is never wrong! With a bathroom cabinet you get a more luxurious feeling and there are lots of different variants to choose from. Here you can find something that matches the style of your particular bathroom. The advantage of a cupboard is also that it can be closed again and that you don’t have to have the same order inside as in the open storage spaces.
Do you have enough space for laundry?
A well-sized laundry basket is never wrong! Dirty laundry is not good for the overall impression of your bathroom. If you have a laundry basket that is too small, the laundry risks ending up directly on the floor, where it does not belong. You can advantageously purchase a laundry basket with a lid, then you also avoid seeing the dirty laundry every time you step into the bathroom.
Some choose not to have the laundry basket in the bathroom and this is of course highly individual. The advantage is that it becomes easy to take off your clothes when you have to take a shower and that you don’t risk getting a lot of clothes lying on the floor.
Hooks, hangers and towel rails
Towels can be hung over most things, such as shower walls, sauna doors, cabinet handles, etc. But why not hang the towels on a real towel hook or towel rail instead? This is both prettier and more structured. Each family member can have their hook and towel inside the toilet.
A heated towel rail creates a more luxurious feel to the bathroom as you can wrap yourself in a heated towel after you shower.
Lighting when furnishing bathrooms
A common mistake when decorating a bathroom is not taking the limited amount of light into account. Most bathrooms have only a small window, or no windows at all. You then become dependent on both the lighting and the color choices, so that the bathroom feels luxurious and stylish.
Choose spotlights if you want a more luxurious feel. Then you can also place these so that they illuminate special places in the bathroom, where you have certain furnishings. You can also have a large mirror in the bathroom with backlight. This is extremely neat and spreads a light over the entire bathroom.
Consider the color choices when decorating your bathroom. Perhaps you also don’t want too many patterns on textiles, as it becomes difficult to perceive when the light is more limited. Choose light colors instead, such as white, beige, light blue or olive green.
Don’t forget to maintain the bathroom
A bathroom can feel as luxurious as it wants, when it’s new, only to fall into disrepair and suddenly not look so nice anymore. So, how do you maintain that new, bright and fresh feeling? The answer is cleaning. It is not enough to just vacuum and wipe clean every now and then. If you have a tiled bathroom, you need to thoroughly clean the bathroom and scrub away coatings at regular intervals. Otherwise, you run the risk that these will settle and the bathroom will be difficult to restore.
The same applies to joints between tiles and clinkers. These become discolored easily, especially if you have chosen white joints. Therefore, if possible, choose gray or darker joints. But regardless of the color of the joints, there are special cleaning agents to clean the joints. There are also special kits that paint over the joints and give them a new feel.
Ad some cozy candles
Candles also contribute to a cozy and luxurious feeling in the bathroom. COMBINE this with some relaxing spa music and you have a bathroom that oozes luxury. You can also choose scented candles if you want to activate even more senses for whoever visits your bathroom.
Try your hand at light, scents and sounds and you will get a bathroom that you feel comfortable in. Hope that you have found inspiration by reading this article and that you can now go out and create yourself a luxurious and pleasant bathroom.
Bonus tip – Decorate small toilet with mirrors
The same applies in all small rooms, decorating with mirrors enlarges. So also when it comes to making a small toilet bigger. If the toilet is small and dark, place a mirror behind the toilet. This will give the effect of the room being larger than it is. Also having a large mirror above the sink with sconces above or at the sides of the mirror magnifies.
