Bathrooms
A bathroom should be a place to refresh, relax and recharge your batteries! Many properties are resold after a couple of years and as the new owners move in, they want to give their new residence their personal touch. While furniture and softfurnishings are easy to replace and to adapt to your personal style, bathrooms seem to be more challenging and expensive to restyle and are often left as they are. However, sometimes it just needs new tiles and fittings to give a bathroom a totally different look and feel and to create that personal Spa you dream of. Interior stylist Justine Knox provides tips and ideas from her treasury of experience and you’ll be surprised what you can achieve at reasonable costs. Interior stylist Justine Knox shared some of her tipps and secrets with us.

Hints and tips
The style of your bathroom should be in keeping with the rest of your property.
  • Marble, glass and solid woods add an air of elegance.
  • A fusion of rustic beams, stone walls, brilliant white ceramics and ultra modern chrome taps and fittings give a modern twist to a country bathroom.
  • For a minimalist approach, suspended basins and toilets are a must, add lots of mirror, glass and clever storage to hide unnecessary clutter and the illusion of space is complete.
  • Adding colour with wall tiles and fun quirky mirrors and taps will give a youthful feel to your bathroom without creating a student pad ambience.
  • Open plan, wet rooms with mosaic walls and river stone floors are still very NOW and keeping a neutral colour scheme will avoid breaking the subtlety of this look.
  • With today’s hectic lifestyle look for simple solutions for a stress free bathroom such as, anti-steam mirrors and non-cal shower screens. Under floor heating and heated towel rails will keep the cold air at bay and damp towels will be a thing of the past.
  • Ventilation and lighting are of paramount importance in a bathroom.
  • Natural light can often be amplified with the correct use of mirrors and glass screens.
  • Halogen lights are very useful in bathrooms and can also be incorporated into shower cubicles together with an extraction fan, as sealed units for bathrooms are readily available why not incorporate them into the floor of your shower area for a dramatic effect when lit at night.
Hygiene and function are very important but adequate storage is often overlooked in today’s bathrooms. Cupboards, baskets, trolleys, shelves and towel rails are all simple solutions to storage problems.

Changing your taps, light fittings and mirror can often be all that is needed to update a tired looking bathroom.

Add to this some new towels and accessories such as candles, plants, scented soaps and objects of art and you will easily create your very own personal Spa.
