The bath tub is at the heart of most bathrooms. For the coming year, why not replace your existing tub and replace it with one that has some more presence? There are plenty of novel approaches that bathroom suite manufacturers are taking to tempt you. From bowl baths, with overhead shower attachments, to one off bespoke boulder baths, you will find something that can make your bathroom unique. And if those bath tubs do not offer sufficiently glamour for bathroom makeover plans, why not order a mosaic shoe bath, which should be outlandish enough for even the most adventurous of tastes. If replacing your bathroom's suite is a little too much to take on straight after the Christmas frenzy, why not bring a little fun to your washroom by updating your choice of wall coverings. Add a selection of random tiles to your walls, and floor, so that you get a vibrant look. Alternatively, use a novelty bathtub and link it, visually, to your wall with a mural or by having some bespoke wallpaper made, like this wonderfully strange cow design. Alternatively, use the tiles themselves as a mural. Many tile manufacturers will be able to give you a range of tile finishes that will suit your mural design ideas.
To get the vintage rest room look, use an old piece of bedroom furniture. A distressed and antique looking chest of drawers makes for a great powder room storage unit. Either cut the back away so you can run pipe work through it or cut a hole in the top to recess your wash basin. Another classic counter top look, that evokes vintage charm, is to opt for a slab of marble, set against decorative tiling. It is not for everyone, but a cozy rest room is made into an inviting place by giving it the additional function of an occasional library. A single shelf with a couple of magazines and easy reading books is enough, but if you like the idea, why not make it a mini reading room?
When you have little space to design in, a powder room’s pipe work may have to be on show. Boxing it in, to hide it, can take up valuable floor space. In such situations make a virtue of the necessity and accentuate what you would normally prefer to hide, like down pipes and waste pipes. Select brushed stainless steel faucet fixings and a towel rail that matches your basin’s waste pipe. Why not extend the idea and use metalwork for your basin, too? Chrome works well as an alternative to stainless steel. If your powder room is located under a stairwell it can be even more pushed for space than elsewhere. Don’t be put off a clear design ethos just because the ceiling may slope or because the room has an awkward corner to negotiate. Site the toilet at the place where headroom is most restricted. Keep the color scheme light in tone and hang a large mirror to give the feeling of more space. Another good tip it to install a hand wash basin that sits in a corner, so guests don't have to squeeze past it.
