Guidelines for a Stylish Home Bathroom

When it comes to interior design, the bathroom is usually not the first room that comes to mind. Very often, new homeowners are excited in the design on their bedrooms and living rooms, leaving little to none of their renovation budget for their bathroom. In addition, most bathrooms in Singapore are small in size, making it difficult to design out of the box. Despite the limited space, there are numerous ways to fully utilise every corner of your bathroom to create beautiful interiors for your usage. With these simple tips and interior design ideas, you can now put together your own stylish bathrooms.

1. Incorporate Accent Lights

The standard cookie cutter designs for bathrooms in Singapore often comes with a single lighting. Instead of illuminating your entire bathroom with a single white light, try incorporating accent lights, such as track lights and lamps to create a different atmosphere. For example, having dimmed accent lights at your vanity area can produce a classy impression and set the mood of relaxation.

2. Use a variety of Tiles

Floor and walls make up a large portion of any bathroom, and are often the first things that catches your eyes. While the original white tiles that comes with your apartment may look decent, you could style it up easily with a change of tiles. Explore different combinations of floor and wall tiles, even paint options to create a harmonious combination. For example, a popular style favored by Malay customers include combining Peranakan tiles of different patterns or laying glass tiles in different colours on your walls. With a different combination of tiles and the use of mirrors, you can create an illusion of a larger bathroom.

3. Unique Multi-purpose Fittings

Another simple way of creating an impressive bathroom is the balanced usage of fittings.

From handlebars to toilet paper holders, consider switching them for rose gold, copper, matte black fixtures, or sleek ones with metallic accents. These elements and materials are in trend now and they can instantly elevate the appearance of your bathroom, making it appear effortlessly stylish and luxurious.

4. Decorate with Plants

Plants by themselves can create significant impact on your bathroom design by inserting calming elements into your bathroom, transforming the space into a sanctuary. They are also soothing to the eyes and can give our mood a boost. Simply place a small potted plant in each corner of your vanity for a pop of greenery, hang a lush and leafy potted plant over your vanity or place a large plant near your shower for a touch of nature.

5. Extend Your Bathroom for a larger area

Last but not least, consider extending your bathroom, you get more space to play around with and a spacious bathroom to relax in every night. If your bathroom is currently small, it may give you a cramped feeling, invoking stress and worry. Work with a professional interior designer who can assist you in achieving that while keeping your home interior design functional and beautiful.
