Welcome back to the Drench blog, where this week we’re revealing 5 powerful areas for making your bathroom décor more luxurious and providing the best possible experience for family and friends.
And the best thing? While there are a lot of expensive bathroom decorating ideas, there’s also a host of ways to spice things up without blowing the bathroom budget.
That’s why, before we dip into some of the fantastic units across the Drench online store, we’re going to kick things off with a collection of ways you can up the luxury for less.
Tip 1 - Luxury for Less
“How do I make my bathroom look better for less?” is one of the questions that we hear the most.
And it’s a great question to ask, because bathroom decorating ideas needn’t cost the earth.
Here’s some of the cost-effective ways we’ve encountered in our decades spent in the industry, so you can totally revamp your bathroom décor without breaking the bank. They require a little creativity and thinking outside of the box so tread carefully - they can be very addictive!
Less bathrooms than you think feature specialised seating but it’s incredibly useful with bigger families. Imagine – no more perching on the side of the bath and those awkward sibling dances around the sink when it comes to toothbrush time.
Whether it’s a classy stool that you and your partner can use to perch upon, up-cycled kitchen stools or garden chairs, get innovative with your bathroom seating.
Add some stylish glass jars to your bathroom to provide cheap and easy extra storage.
These can also be filled with Potpourri or some other pleasant smelling stuff to effortlessly create an air of rustic luxury.
What Really Mat-ters
Replace your old and boring bathmats with some Persian rugs, custom linoleum patchwork mats or other inventive carpeting.
It saves the need to replace your flooring by spicing up your old tiles with dashes of colour and character, as well as stops the floor getting dangerously slippery when everyone’s jumping in and out of the shower.
Tip 2 - Even More Custom Touches
There really is no limit to how specific you can get when creating bathroom luxury for less, and even the smallest personal touch can usher heaps of fresh character into your bathroom.
Try bordering your mirror with some rope to help achieve the sought-after nautical bathroom décor or enlist the kids to create a colourful tile border.
Another great idea is custom hooks that can be brought across from any room in the house, and why not try a vintage coat stand for a funky way to hang your towels?
If you’re still not hooked, try some cheap stencils to add colour and character to the walls without shelling out on repainting, as well as classic wallpapers. Either approach will add to the usual white, grey or monochrome schemes with bold colour palettes for a vivid and luxurious change.
And what better way to admire your new work than with some innovative upcycled lighting, whether it be with a sweet old wooden lamp or bulbs across a metal frame for a retro Hollywood dressing room feel?
We hope these ideas provide a starting point from which to launch your budget-conscious bathroom decorating mission – they certainly have helped along our own projects! Though if you require some bathroom luxury tips that are a little more substantial, read on…
