- Choosing an All-White Theme
An all-white bathroom will give it that luxurious and clean feel you’re looking for. An all-white bathroom will also make the room seem much larger than it is. Use white cabinets, countertops, tiles, and bathroom furniture.
Bring in as much natural light as possible. When you’ve finished creating your all-white space, you can then discover different ways to add a bit of color here and there. The colorful item you use will stand out against the white, so make sure it’s something you really love.
This item will be the first thing you see when you walk into your new bathroom. It could be an art piece with one simple light blue flower or anything else that’s simple yet has a splash of color in it.
- Using Simple Touches of Grey
An all-grey bathroom would make your bathroom dark and feel smaller than it is. You won’t want to do that. What you can do, however, is use simple touches of grey throughout the bathroom.
This works well in an all-white bathroom, or in a bathroom with marble floors and countertops and gold cabinets even. Grey bathroom tiles can be used in the shower and reach their way up to the ceiling. They can also be used to cover one wall in the bathroom, creating an accent wall.
If using marble in your bathroom, try to find a grey tile that matches the greys in your marble.
- Lay Tile Diagonally
All bathrooms need a title flooring to prevent damages due to water and moisture. No matter what tile you use and no matter how cheap or expensive it is, you can instantly make your bathroom feel larger and more luxurious by laying the tiles diagonally.
Making vertical or horizontal lines in your bathroom with square tiles will create an outdated feel. Take the square tiles and lay them in a diagonal position from the doorway. When you walk in, you want to see the diagonal lines, which will open up the room.
- Add a Few Green Plants
Adding a few green plants into your bright bathroom will create an airy and inviting space. There are many houseplants that’ll do well in your bathroom. Consider using aloe vera plants or ferns to start with.
Place them in a brightly-colored planter and hang them from the ceiling of your bathroom. The green plants add a splash of color to your bathroom and when you hang them up high, it’ll bring your eyes to the ceiling.
This will in return, make your bathroom feel larger.
- Use Extravagant Light Fixtures
Sometimes, all a bathroom needs is an update to its light fixtures to feel more luxurious. Using extravagant light fixtures for the main ceiling light will create a spa-like feel. Replace your current light with a chandelier.
You don’t have to go all out either. Find an inexpensive chandelier and hang it up! It’ll look amazing in your bathroom.
You can then replace the lighting around your bathroom mirror with updated fixtures. This small detail will make a big difference. If you want to go the extra mile, then you can even replace your bathroom’s hardware as well.
Remove those boring cabinet knobs and replace them with jewel crystal knobs or something else that’s luxurious and shows off your sense of style.
- Display Luxurious Towels
What type of towels do you currently have in your bathroom? Towels can make a big difference as well. Switch out your old towels for luxury towels that are soft and fluffy.
You can even display luxurious towels with letter monograms for your name on them. Hang the larger towel first and then hang a small towel with your monogram on it over the larger towel.
How’s that for a royal bathroom?
- Switch Out the Small Things
The small details make all the difference. Rather than doing a complete remodel of your bathroom, which can get quite expensive, consider simply switching out the small things.
Replace all your towels, bathroom mats, and the shower curtain to match one another. When selecting these items, it’s okay to choose the more expensive ones. The total of money you spend on these items will be nothing compared to what you’d spend if you did a complete gut job.
Using high-quality bathroom items like these will increase your bathroom’s aesthetics immediately. Choose soft memory foam mats and rugs. Hang a luxurious shower curtain.
Hide all your bathroom toiletries and only display one luxurious soap dispenser. Replace your bathroom sink faucet with a more luxurious one. All these small details and updates will add up to an extravagant bathroom.
