How to create a Glamorous Bathroom
Have you ever stayed away in a beautiful hotel and almost staged a sit-in when it’s time to go home because you don’t want to leave the glamorous bathroom behind? I have, I take lots of photographs of all the little details so that I can recreate the same effects back at home. It’s not as hard as you think if you follow these style tips;
What defines a glamorous bathroom?
A glamorous bathroom has traditional and stylish furnishings which create a clean and clutter-free bathroom in which you can relax and unwind. Want to give your bathroom a glam touch? Get creative design inspiration for your bathroom from Harrogate Bathroom Showroom.
Choosing Bathroom Units and Appliances
Look for bathroom units and appliances with sleek lines with rounded edges for a softer look. Remember you want something glamorous and luxurious not modern and edgy. Think along the lines of roll-top baths placed in the centre of a large bathroom for movie-star glamour.
Fixtures and Fittings
The fixtures and fittings such as taps and shower risers need to be simple with clean lines. I stayed in one hotel with a waterfall tap which was divine, can you imagine the sound as the bath was running? Opt for wall-mounted shower risers and wall-hung toilets with the sink set into a stylish vanity unit with lots of storage to keep the counters free from clutter.
Walls and Floors
Aim for understated elegance, think subtle patterns in warm shades or pastels. Perhaps something with a bit of sparkle to it? You could choose marble floors with a gold or silver fleck to it or shimmery wall tiles for a spot of glitz.
Also, choose mirrors or artwork which are a little different from the norm, think more Vogue, less Ikea. Oversized mirrors like this one from Wayfair look amazing in a bathroom to increase light and give a feeling of grandeur.
If you are putting a shower in your bathroom then look for frameless shower enclosures to keep the lines to a minimum and avoid shower curtain at all costs, these rarely look glamorous. Choose large shower heads or maybe a steam shower for that additional spa treatment.
Provided your bathroom is big enough to take it then choose a chandelier or add mood lighting for when you want to relax in your bath without the harsh lights affecting your zen-like state.
When choosing bathroom accessories, think of big fluffy towels, large candles and exotic flower arrangements like orchids. Wooden bath mats will give the spa-like touches whilst glass and metal accessories will add the shimmer and shine.
