Luxury Bathrooms Ideas For Less
Luxury bathroom ideas that won’t break the bank
Everyone deserves a luxurious, relaxing retreat in their home. When it comes to luxury in the bathroom, the first thing that comes to mind is usually dollar signs. It doesn’t have to be this way! We’ve uncovered affordable and easy ways to give your bathroom a lavish, new look.
If minor renovations are on the cards, consider replacing shower curtains with glass panels to open the room, and create the illusion of more space. Another way to achieve this is to include a large mirror, or for smaller bathrooms, a mirror that spans the entire wall.
The use of tiles can take your bathroom from average to amazing. Give your bathroom a high-end feel by tiling from the floor to the ceiling. If you are tiling top to bottom, some tiles are more affordable than others so it pays to explore your design options. Think outside the square and experiment with tile size. Larger rectangular tiles (2 by 9 inches or 3 by 6 inches) will give your bathroom an edgy and modern appearance. A more affordable option is using a mirror to cover one wall, or only tiling a select few.
If you are re-tiling the floor, tiled floor rugs are a modern design feature that are common in many bathroom re-models. The floor has a huge impact on your bathroom’s overall appearance. Instead of tiling the entire space with pricey tiles, create a ‘rug’ by coordinating a few eye-catching tiles into the centre of the room.
Replacing knobs and pulls on vanities is another easy way to update your bathroom’s appearance. Some vintage handles can completely transform your vanity without you having to replace the entire thing. If you’re down to the finishing touches on your bathroom renovation, consider a chrome finish for your fixtures. Chrome is inexpensive, easy to maintain, and will add a modern touch to your bathroom.
Not every budget bathroom renovation has to be a lengthy process. There are simple approaches that will transform your bathroom in an instant.
Accessorise like you’re at the spa
There are so many luxury bathroom items that will heighten your senses every time you enter the bathroom! The smell of essential oils, the calming visuals, and the touch of a lush towel will send your bathroom to spa status in an instant. Include some artwork in your bathroom décor, with a metal or plastic frame to endure the humidity. It’s a cost effective and personal way to add luxury to your bathroom. Candles and diffusers are also a must-have!
Get in touch with nature
Creating an uplifting, tranquil atmosphere in your bathroom can be as simple as adding some greenery. Pot plants that love humidity, succulents or even a vase of flowers will significantly enhance the serenity in your bathroom. The best part is they’re inexpensive! For a contemporary look, design your own terrarium, or hang air plants from the ceiling. Luxury bathroom designs are never short of natural décor.
Say yes to storage
Less clutter means more luxury when it comes to your bathroom! When was the last time you flipped open a design magazine and saw a pharmacy full of products on a high-end vanity? Never. Invest in some baskets or boxes to store products in and keep your bathroom benches clutter free. Wooden or glass floating shelves and ladder-like storage offer a tasteful way to display linen, candles, or other luxury bathroom accessories.
Luxury bathroom designs don’t have to break the bank! Incorporate some affordable design and decorating elements into your bathroom to give it that modern charm.
