The bathroom is one of the most overlooked areas of the home when it comes to making improvements and optimizing the décor. And while it may be primarily designed for practical purposes, you can still inject a bit of luxury into your bathroom, if you know how.
To give you some inspiration, here are some tips that will make it easier to revamp your bathroom and deliver that five star experience every day.
Invest in designer accessories
One thing you will notice about the way high end hotels outfit their bathrooms is that they emphasize the opulence by adding as many well known designer brands as possible. From towels and gowns to beauty products and even the fixtures and fittings, you will quickly get the impression that a lot has been spent to make guests feel pampered.
Recreating this at home is a breeze; just check out the range of designer homeware from Versace for example, and pick up a few bathroom accessories which you can display proudly to add that touch of glitz and glamour. Most major fashion houses have products suited to bathroom use, so take your pick from your preferred brands.
Shower curtains are functional, for sure, but they are also somewhat shabby and can suffer from wear and tear over time. This is why top notch accommodation tends to come with showers separated by glass dividers in their place.
Fitting a glass divider rather than a shower curtain to your bath or cubicle at home is one of the most affordable renovation steps you can take, and will make a big impact. Just be prepared to also keep a squeegee on hand to remove the drips and create a streak-free look after each shower you take.
Speaking of showers, have you noticed that classy establishments that offer accommodation often have a uniquely all-encompassing amount of water that cascades deliciously onto your head when you hop in for a wash? This is usually down to the type of showerhead that is used, with larger and more traditional designs creating the rainfall effect that can really help to wash away your worries.
Installing a rainfall-style shower head at home is an obvious solution, and is another seriously cost-effective avenue to explore. Just make sure that the head you choose is compatible with your current shower setup, and that your water pressure is adequate to work in combination with it.
Certain types of plants will thrive in the moist environment created in your bathroom, and the other benefit they bring is one of adding color and life to a room which might otherwise feel a little bland and uninspiring.
On top of all this, houseplants in the bathroom can actually help to purify the air, making it a more pleasant place to spend some time, which is really what you want for a five star hotel experience at home.
Lastly, the real secret to the style and opulence of five star bathrooms is that they tend to be rather empty when you arrive, and are free from all the usual detritus found in the average domestic equivalent.
Decluttering your own bathroom with storage is the best way to replicate this, so adding a wicker laundry basket so that used towels and clothing can be kept out of sight, as well as installing a towel rail so that essential items can be kept organized, will make a world of difference.
