Three Statement Ideas For Your Bathroom

Whether it's squeezed into a tiny cupboard under the stairs or within a double-height room inside a grand mansion flat, many of us will look upon our bathroom as a place of sanctuary. Oddly, I believe we encounter the same decorating concern whether our bathing space is big or small: how do I create a striking statement in a space so regimented in its components? In a small space we feel restricted by the lack of, well, space and in a large bathroom it can be a struggle to make it feel cosy and inviting. Tackle the latter by zoning the space - a half-height wall in zingy tiles will create smaller, nook-like spaces. Whereas, in smaller bathrooms, turn your attention to what's already there - a coloured tub or an update to an everyday item, like a mirror, which can become the statement if used in an unusual manner.

  1. i love this photos. The yellow tall mirror is my favorites. Adding a {pop} colored frame mirror made the room more interesting.

  7. My biggest embarrassment is my bathroom. It's completely bare and sterile. I need some zing to it, like the lemon yellow mirror. So sweet!
