From light-up bathtubs to chandeliers in the bathroom, there are a number of innovative ways to transform an everyday space. For inspiration, here are ten unique design ideas to transform your bathroom into a fully functional home spa.
1. Faux windows
For those who live in tiny, city apartments – a window is a rare treat, especially one that reveals a breathtaking backdrop. There is a way to overcome this, which involves creating your very own faux window. Simply place a scenic photo onto glass and hang it where you would expect the window to be.
2. Bold wallpaper
A room with personality is one way to overcome a small space. Instead of keeping the décor clean and minimalistic, choose vibrant wallpaper to add instant character to the room.
3. Under-cabinet lighting
After a hectic day in the office, a long soak in the bath is a welcome treat. Clever lighting in the bathroom plays an important role and installing a variety of dimmable spotlights will allow you to control the intensity of the light. Under-cabinet illumination works to enhance pretty shelving displays as well as a number of darker areas.
4. Light-up bathtubs
Although unconventional, a light-up bathtub is a great asset to the modern-day bathroom. The light from the tub will illuminate the room without the need for a main lighting source.
5. A chandelier
Placing a chandelier above the bathtub will create a retro effect and one that will add instant drama to the room. Complement this feature with a variety of similarly styled accessories.
6. A sunken bath
Creating a spa-like effect in your home is easier than you may think and one way to add a little opulence includes investing in a sunken bath, such as those featured by Betta Living. Instead of climbing over the side of the tub, you can simply sink into it.
Tiling both the floor and the walls will work to create the appearance of a wetroom, and when colourful shades are added in, it will instantly update a tired space.
If you are short on space, placing pull-out drawers beneath the sink will put the basin to good use whilst allowing you to hide any unwanted clutter.
9. Use a rug
If you have a larger space to work with, laying a rug will help you to create a cosy, welcoming room, whilst introducing a hint of colour.
Mirrors can be applied to a smaller space in order to make it appear larger, especially now that there are a range of mirrored furniture options to choose from. Instead of hanging a mirror from the wall, opt to place a reflective cabinet in its place.
